To say that November was a rough month would be an understatement. The "bounces" that were going the Leafs' way for most of the calendar year began to dry up, every offensive centre in the lineup found a way to disappear in some way shape or form, and the Leafs squeaked away with just two regulation wins and eleven points in thirteen games. To remain a playoff team, the Leafs absolutely need to have a strong December. The issue? Their opponents are strong, including tonight's San Jose Sharks. It was a battle of the best volume shooters against one of the worst shot bleeders, and at times it showed, ultimately leading to a 4-2 win for the Sharks.

Hey, so I know everybody wants to pretend last night's Leafs game never happened. Maybe if your first reaction was to reach for alcohol, your memory may have just accomplished that (if so, congrats and seek help). But, before the big club began their loss in Montreal last night, the Toronto Marlies had an afternoon game against the Rochester Americans. The process? A little Leafs-like, but the result was different, as they won 3-2 over the Buffalo Sabres affiliate.

The Toronto Marlies will soon be unveiling their jersey for December 30th's Comerica Park game against the Grand Rapids Griffins, but that doesn't mean you can't see them earlier. Real Sports Apparel accidentally put this jersey up on their website for sale yesterday, before quickly taking it down. It's safe to say this is what will be shown on Saturday afternoon.

As confirmed yesterday and originally reported by me on Monday (TLN with those #exclusives, yo) the Toronto Marlies swapped around their two rookie goaltenders, sending Garret Sparks to the Orlando Solar Bears of the ECHL and calling up Christopher Gibson. I've had a few people ask me about this, so let's go into detail into the significance that this seemingly minor move may have.

Unique teams! Non-divisional and non-occasional! I love them! Wait, we're seeing these new guys again just three days later, and they're gone from the building afterwards until who knows what season? How about that.. whatever the case, the Toronto Marlies are back home for their third game in four nights, re-facing the Charlotte Checkers. On Saturday, the Marlies beat the Hurricanes affiliate 4-1, lead by Greg McKegg's two goal, two assist performance. Tonight, the Marlies doubled up, defeating the Checkers for the second time in the homestead.
