We’re sure you didn’t miss it, but a fan managed to hop onto the ice at the Leafs home game against Tampa Bay on March 19. It was silly, kind of funny, and far more unique to hockey than it is to baseball.

It also raises some questions, like why someone would risk punishment to do this, how they managed to climb the glass before security could step in, and how much alcohol was involved?

I was listening to the newest Steve Dangle podcast and a listener emailed in a question about which coaches should replace Randy Carlyle. It's interesting because one or two episodes ago, Steve & Co. couldn't really place a finger on a candidate.
