Frazer McLaren wasn't around to "set the tone", or whatever you want to call it in today's game (he's been called up in case of Clarkson-emergency), but I don't think he was particularly necessary. After all, the Toronto Marlies and Lake Erie Monsters were just hours removed from one of the scrappiest games the American Hockey League has seen this season. Steve Spott called out the referees as poorly controlling yesterday's mess, so really, it came as no surprise that the two teams took the opportunity to settle their differences in the way the wanted to today.

At the same time, there was still a matter of the scoreboard, and a hat trick was the difference in a 4-1 Marlies win.

The Marlies named Trevor Smith to be their captain before the start of the 2013/14 season. Tonight, the Marlies played game 56 of the season. It was Smith's third with the team. I don't think that things went exactly as planned when the original announcement was made; but there are worse problems than "whoops, our Captain turned out to be NHL good until the team had to do trade-deadline cap shuffling". With that said, he can no longer say he's undefeated with a C on his chest, as the Marlies dropped this one by a score of 3-2.

It's Thursday afternoon, and there isn't really anything new to report about the Leafs at this time. We have recaps in text and video form up for yesterday's game. The media is being nicer to Dave Bolland than they are to Phil Kessel for not speaking to the media, but I can't stretch that double standard into a post. But I was told a pretty awesome story involving everybody's favourite Estonian-born Finnish Pest that speaks a billion languages and currently plays in Russia.
