Looking to bounce back from an embarrassing defeat in Winnipeg just last night, the Toronto Maple Leafs travel to St. Paul, Minnesota for a date with the dumbest-named team in the NHL. Most teams are named after something with historical importance, or at least after a feared alpha predator.
But the Wild? "Hello, and welcome to Minnesota. There is literally nothing here."
Still, that doesn't take away from the fact that this team is half-decent. And that means they're better than the Leafs (most are), so if you're still licking your Jets-inflicted wounds, you may want to prepare yourself for another upset.

Garret Sparks is piling up accolades like the Winnipeg Jets pile up goals.
But seriously, there are two very big pieces of news here, so let's break it all down...

We've written a lot of words about William Nylander lately and just how good he's looked for the Toronto Marlies. So good, in fact, that a lot of folks want the Maple Leafs to bring him up to the big club and see if he continue his scoring ways in the NHL. Nylander is one of the best prospects in all of hockey, and his progress is making a lot of Leafs fans feel warm and fuzzy inside.
So, hey, let's not forget about Mitch Marner in the OHL, ok?
The Leafs' top pick of the 2015 NHL Draft had himself a hell of a weekend with three multipoint games in three days. On Friday, Marner assisted on three goals in London's 6-1 win over Owen Sound. On Saturday, it was a goal and assist in another win over the Attack, this time 4-1. Yesterday, Marner added another goal and two more assists in another 5-3 win over Windsor. That's eight points in three games, 27 points in 10 games this month, and a whopping 47 points in 22 games so far this season.

Today is Toronto Maple Leafs Assistant GM Kyle Dubas's birthday. We here at TLN wish him a good one, but our wishes ain't nothing compared to sweet Gramma Dubas's.
