Perhaps the one positive of the Nation Network setting every site, regardless of home market, on Alberta Time is that, when history looks back on this article, it's not going to look like I wrote the Monday Mailbag on Tuesday. That's all good, though; let's dive in while we wind down from that roller-coaster in Brooklyn.

Things looked really good for the Leafs at times tonight, as they held no fewer than three leads against the New York Islanders. Unfortunately, their end result was about as pretty as the view from the far end zone at the Barclays Center, as the blue and white fell to a 6-5 overtime defeat against the New York Islanders.

Just a couple months ago, the Islanders were written off the worst team in the eastern conference, and it felt like essentially everything was going wrong for the whole franchise with added talks of venue problems and the looming contract John Tavares will need. Those last two points still stand, but the team itself has been playing some better hockey over the last little while (or at least getting better results) and actually sit just three points back of Toronto with the same amount of games played. Like the Leafs, they could be in the thick of the playoff hunt when things get down to the wire, so tonight's game in Brooklyn has plenty of importance behind it.

A lot of hockey happened. A lot of Leafs happened, also.
