Two wins? In a row? Your eyes do not deceive you, Leafs fans. Toronto visited Nashville tonight and kept pace with a far better team, taking the Predators deep into the shootout and coming out the other side with an unexpected 2-1 win.

Does the NHL have a scoring problem? Some people certainly seem to think so - enough that the topic came up for discussion at the NHL GMs meetings in Toronto this week.
Apparently, scoring has taken a bit of a dip and goaltenders are to blame. See, they're taller and wider than they once were; their equipment has gotten bigger and, my God, they're improving over time. It's practically soccer on ice out there.
Ok, not really. But I'm sure some folks believe it's heading that way.

It's a good thing that the Toronto Maple Leafs aren't in the Western Conference because I don't think the Dallas Stars would sleep very easy. In fact, the Stars couldn't be any happier to not see the Leafs again this season, having dropped both of their games against the blue and white.
Put that into perspective, please. The Stars are tied for second in the league. The Leafs sit second last. Toronto is responsible for half of all Dallas losses this season while Dallas accounts for two of three of Toronto's wins. Toronto owns Dallas.
Anyways, Leafs win 3-2! Here's the rundown...

It's Hockey Night in Washington as the Toronto Maple Leafs head to the U.S. capital for a date with the... Oh. The Capitals. I actually didn't mean to do that. Oh well. I'll own it.
The Leafs are coming off an overtime loss last night to Detroit - a game in which Toronto looked pretty good but couldn't beat Petr Mrazek. Tonight, they'll be up against another talented netminder in Braden Holtby, not exactly the kind of goalie one of the league's worst offences wants to come up against.
Here are all of your pre-game details...
