Auston Matthews recognizes that the Toronto Maple Leafs‘ dreams haven’t exactly been coming true since they started using their current goal song.

The reigning Hart Trophy winner said Friday that he “wouldn’t mind” if the club stopped using the classic Hall and Oates track as its celebratory tune. However, he did note that he’d be “fine” if Toronto kept it as is.

The Leafs started playing “You Make My Dreams (Come True)” to mark their goals at the beginning of the 2018-19 season. Since then, they’ve failed to make it into the second round of the playoffs in all four campaigns – a trend that followed two consecutive first-round exits before the switch.

Toronto ranked second in the NHL with 3.8 goals per game during the 2021-22 regular season, but the players were more likely singing “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)” after their sixth straight early exit in May.
