This team does know that the Olympic Break is over, right? I mean, the first line is still chugging away as if they never missed a beat (because they didn't) but the Leafs entered tonight having lost their first two games since returning. The opening twenty and final five minutes displayed a team that looked ready to snap the trend. The rest of the game displayed something that was worse than the opposite, which lead to a 2-1 loss.

Today is Canadian Armed Forces day at Ricoh Coliseum, which means hockey, soliders, camo jerseys, and... Jerry D'Amigo Bobbleheads? I'm not 100% sure where the last one ties into the others, but the fans certainly weren't complaining. Most important was the hockey though, and the Toronto Marlies took on the Lake Erie Monsters in their last game of the weekend, and homestead. They did so by ending it all on a high note, with three third period goals being the difference in a 5-2 victory.

Leafs Postgame: Sacrebleu

It's a matchup that never gets old. Once about being the face of English Canada vs. the face of French Canada, the Leafs and Habs rivalry is still about two powerhouse organizations. Tons of money. Tons of fans. Tons of history. Two pretty good teams, as well. It's always a fun night to watch, and it was going to get even better with a Sochi Semifinal rematch. James van Riemsdyk and Phil Kessel vs Carey... what? Peter Budaj started? Whatever. It's still a rivalry game with lots of points implications, and it landed in the favour of the Bleu, Blanc, et Rouge, by a score of 4-3.
