John Tavares made his return to New York on Thursday night as a member of the Maple Leafs.  The home crowd was not at all happy to see him after he left the team in the off-season.

Tavares said after the game that he expected the welcome that he received from the Islanders fans.

I wonder if he expected the 6-1 beat down his former team gave his current team?  Because it looked like the fans weren’t the only ones that wanted to ruin Tavares’ homecoming.
