You'd have thought that the New Jersey Devils would have been ripe for the taking, considering they headed into tonight's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs having lost five straight games. But the Leafs, who've been playing pretty good hockey for two weeks now, came out flat and never really seemed to find a groove.
The Devils scored early and often on route to a 5-3 victory, handing the Leafs their ninth loss of the season.

The Leafs are 4-0-1 in their past five games, which means they are a good hockey team again and we can all relax and talk about how great life is.
One of the cool things I've noticed about the Leafs is, they're getting some massive performances out of their stars, but also getting major contributions from their secondary players. It's tough to say who's been Toronto's most valuable player through 24 games, but that's why you're here.

Verhaeghe Is Good At Hockey Again!
ICYMI, Carter Verhaeghe hasn't produced nearly as much offence as he probably should be so far this season. There's two probable reasons for this really; the Niagara Ice Dogs have been pretty bad at winning hockey games this year, and Verhaeghe is playing without his 2013-2014 linemate Brendan Perlini (who hasn't played yet this year because of a broken hand).

So, in case you hadn't heard yet, the Leafs lost 9-2 to the Nashville Predators last night. This is after getting stomped on by the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday. Things were pretty grim in Leafs Nation today, with near everyone calling for heads to roll (or, at the very least, fired).

Toninato, Cameranesi take down No. 1 Minnesota
In case you were unaware, The University of Minnesota System has two NCAA Division 1 hockey programs.
The University of Minnesota Golden Gophers, who play for the school's flagship campus in Minneapolis and St. Paul, are a very good hockey team. In fact, they were the top-ranked team in all of the NCAA heading into this weekend's home-and-home with their cross-campus rivals, the University of Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs. You've probably guessed that the Bulldogs represent the University of Minnesota-Duluth campus, and you probably already know that Leafs prospects Dominic Toninato and Tony Cameranesi play for UMD.
