If you thought the Toronto Marlies' 5-2 loss to the Utica Comets on Wednesday was the end of the road for their run up the standings, you were sorely mistaken. The team hosted a pair of games at Ricoh Coliseum on Friday night and Saturday against the Manitoba Moose, and found themselves successful in both, providing yet another boost to their odds of making the North Division's leaderboard into a bit of a race.

Two major names - Landeskog and Duchene - are apparently in play, and as such, you can expect that duo to dominate coverage until the deadline passes. 

As recently as yesterday, some rumblings started to come about regarding the Leafs and their interest in what the Avs might be selling. Until now we hadn't really heard anything about Toronto being involved in something that big, or much of anything at all.
