Tomorrow is the start of the 102nd season of the National Hockey League. With a sport being around for so long, there is a lot of history and tradition within the last century.  One of the most notable phrases in the sport, “Is it October yet?”, has been getting fans hyped for the months before the first game. The NHL always starts in early October and it has been that way for a long time. There are 4 games tomorrow and the very first game of the new season is between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Ottawa Senators, on at 6 pm CST. The Battle of Ontario has been a staple of hockey for over a century, with the two teams of Ontario, Canada playing against each other. Their rivalry has been there since they joined the league and it is always an enjoyable game to watch. The other games on tomorrow are; Capitals vs Blues, Canucks vs Oilers, and Sharks vs Golden Knights. This season should be a great season and as hockey fans, we can’t wait to see what happens.
