As you've probably heard, the Toronto Marlies knocked the Milwaukee Admirals in a swift and timely fashion, opting to prevent the series from even reaching the beginning of the weekend. I expected it to be a much closer series, but this team has been very good at defying expectation all year. Just for laughs, though, I decided to compare my series preview to what actually happened.

The Kontinental Hockey League is a magical place. The fans are fewer, but they're louder. The players are often paid more than they'd make in North America, but as a whole, the teams spend less. Ilya Kovalchuk and Alexander Radulov are still people that exist to be good at winning hockey games. And, most importantly, instead of the Stanley Cup, they play for the Gagarin Cup. This year, Metallurg Magnitogorsk is taking on Lev Praha, in a series that's about to go to a 7th and deciding game on Wednesday.

I was bored, so I took a look at some of the connections these two teams have to the Leafs.
