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.

The Toronto Maple Leafs take on the Ottawa Senators tonight. We're still at the stage of the season where a hiccup can be mended with the time remaining, but there's not a ton of that time left and you better believe that making this a statement win would matter much, much more.

Perhaps the biggest story heading into the NHL trade deadline in just twelve days is the way the league appears to be circling the carcass of the Colorado Avalanche like a bunch of vultures. 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. Now they have their names thrown into the hat with most of the league, and those rumours only gained momentum last night with assistant GM Kyle Dubas and head of pro scouting Dave Morrison in Buffalo to see Colorado.

After suffering an injury during Wednesday's loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets, rookie sensation Mitch Marner was not at Maple Leafs practice today. The injury occurred with about five minutes to go in the second period, as Marner tried to check Boone Jenner but slipped and tumbled into the boards. After the spill, Marner went to the dressing room, returned to the bench, and ultimately called it a night.
