I'm starting to think I should stop writing postgame recaps. The Leafs have blown solid leads every time I've done them... Leafs lose 5-4 in the shootout to the Chicago Blackhawks.

LGD: No Daggers Please

Costello Music is a great album. From Henrietta to Ole Black 'n' Blue Eyes, you're hard-pressed to find a single bad track on the Fratellis' debut record. I don't think I've regularly listened to a single release they've put out in the ten years since, but I can go back to this one once every few months and have a good time with it.

For a while, the song that the public was most aware of was Flathead, thanks to an iPod commercial. That's how I found out about the Fratellis. But then the Chicago Blackhawks ruined everything forever by making Chelsea Dagger ubiquitous and frustrating for those who watched literally any other hockey team.

Tonight, the Leafs look to silence Chelsea Dagger, for the good of the greater hockey universe.

There's no doubt the start of this season has been an exciting one for Leafs fans. Despite the club dropping three of their four opening games, any concerns about leaning on the rookies have seemingly been put to rest, and the brand of hockey being played looks like it'll be about 700x more entertaining than it has the last few seasons.

That said, they have dropped three of four, and in each loss have blown a lead in the third period. These are close, winnable games, so I wanted to ask the TLN staff what they think has been the main reason for the Leafs' struggles and what, if any, lineup tinkering they might do heading into the weekend.

The Toronto Marlies played their first road game of the season tonight in Rochester, New York, taking on the Amerks in a showdown that will happen a frustratingly high amount of times over the next few months. Perhaps more frustrating than having to see the same team a bazillion times, however, is falling behind in the season series, something that happened tonight as the blue and white conceded three powerplay goals against in a 5-2 loss.
