There has to be something possessed about the Leafs right now (and I'm not talking about holding onto the puck). The Leafs, starting the game off with a 2-0 lead against the Buffalo Sabres which they then moved up to a 3-1 lead right before the end of the second period, looked to be in the clear to snap their five-game losing streak. 

But Buffalo fought back, forced overtime, and handed the Leafs their fifth consecutive one-goal loss (and seventh in nine games), albeit this time in a shootout. When it was all said and done, the Leafs were looking up at the scoreboard and seeing a 3 next to their name and a 4 next to Buffalo's.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have done a spectacular job at helping the tank over this past week. They've been playing their rookies, they've been playing well, and most importantly, have repeatedly lost every game by one goal in regulation.

It was an exciting week in Leafs land. Not, "hey we got a win" exciting or "hey check out the return we got for Parenteau" exciting, but thanks to the Marlies invasion we can look back and find a few positives. 

We're going to try doing something a little different with Power Rankings, and rather than painfully assign rankings to the top 20 roster players, we're going to look at the top ten Leafs moments over the past 7 days.

"Three-game losing streak" hasn't been in this team's vocabulary since their season ended in a first round playoff collapse last year. Then again, neither was getting shut out, but the Utica Comets ended that by blanking them on Friday. Today, the Marlies looked for revenge and a high note to end a lacklustre weekend, but couldn't get it in what ended up being a 5-4 loss.
