The Toronto Maple Leafs are off to their hottest start in 100 years. You read right - 100 years.

It's only been two games but they've already demonstrated the offensive dominance most expected from them with the stacked lineup that they have.

After a 7-2 thumping of the Winnipeg Jets in their season opener, they took down the New York Rangers 8-5 Saturday night in Toronto. They blew a 5-1 lead, but still came out on top on the sticks of their incredibly talented forward corps.

These 15 goals in 2 games come closest the team has ever come to a previous record established by the franchise 100 years ago, back when the team wasn't even called the Maple Leafs.

It's only 2 games - but after last season's unexpected success, it's clear this team is finally competitive.
