AFC North: the Halloween Division is Competitive all the way down.

So the Leafs and Blackhawks decided to roll back the clock and play some 1980s hockey.

The Leafs win 7-6 in overtime, with the teams combining for 4 goals in 1:43 seconds (last 1:24 of regulation and the first 19 seconds of overtime).

After taking a 2-0 lead, the Blackhawks fell asleep for about half a minute late in the 1st period as the Leafs scored twice in 34 seconds to finish the period tied 2-2.

From then on, the teams exchanged goals as the Blackhawks tied the game up at 3, 4, 5, and 6, before the quick ending in the over time.

It was backup goalie vs backup goalie as each team played the night before.

And the Hurricanes v Rangers game ended with an 8-5 score. The Rangers' Georgiev had the better save percentage with .821 in the losing effort. I'm OK with this since it was the Hurricanes that built the snowman on the scoreboard.
