This was a weird game, to say the least. I'm not even sure if I'm comfortable with saying that a team won this game; rather, one where one lost less than the other. The two teams took turns waking up, falling asleep, and going back to step one. In this case, the Leafs were a little bit better at messing up, and the Habs took home two regulation points.

If the AHL regular season ended last night, the 3rd place in the Western Conference Toronto Marlies would be put against the 6th place Milwaukee Admirals in the first round of the playoffs.

This summer, the Toronto Maple Leafs signed David Clarkson to a deal that was bad (7 years @ 5.25 per) when it was signed, but now feels extremely ugly. "Why did they sign this guy over keeping Clarke MacArthur?" many yelled, thinking he was the cheapest player they could compare him to. But as it turns out, we can dig even deeper. I give you: David Clarkson (2014 Model) vs. Leo Komarov (2013 Model).

Lost in both Toronto teams playing last night, Paul Ranger's unfortunate injury, and the never-ending goaltender drama, was the fact that Spencer Abbott set a Toronto Marlies single season record last night, notching his 51st and 52nd assists of the year, overtaking Tim Stapleton's record from 2008/09. That's all well and good, but there's a couple more things to touch up on.
