    I remember Punch Imlach using unusual metrics to dial in how the Leafs were doing at any poijnt in a given game/series/season etc. He counted “Hits”. Sure enough, the number of hits usually translated into wins. Now I hear the latest is “Time of Possession” as in Canada 48/USA 12. Sure told a story yesterday. Will be interesting if it continues against those dastardly vikings from Uppsala…
