I'd like to start my rundown by giving some unknown kid in a yellow sweatshirt a shout-out. In a bizarre incident in the third he managed to grab a stick after Panik tossed it up and over the boards into the stands, receiving a non-penalty for misconduct for his troubles. The grin on unknown kid's face was the highlight of the game. Literally.
I was practically having an existential crisis imagining all the things I could have done with this 60 minutes of play - read a book, saw a movie, learned a language - when this kid reminded me what it was all about... stolen gear.

Today's game s a matchup of the people. The Toronto Maple Leafs, who just came off of their first non-sellout game in the past thirteen years, will host the Florida Panthers, who are still looking for the term "sellout" in the dictionary. I wouldn't be surprised if the Leafs turn that blip into a brief streak tonight; tickets are still available as we speak and the Leafs look terrible.
Oh, and there's a hockey game.

In a move that the many of us will overlook or soon forget, the Marlies have signed Jack Rodewald from the Moose Jaw Warriors to an AHL contract.
Marlies have signed Jack Rodewald out of the WHL. Had good numbers as an overage player in Moose Jaw.— James Mirtle (@mirtle) March 26, 2015

Phil Kessel is far and away the Toronto Maple Leafs' best player. Also, he only has three points in his last ten games and must be traded.
I mean, that's not really the case. Yes, he's not scoring at his usual point-per-game clip, but only a bunch of idiots would want to run him out of town because of his stat line.
For instance, I'm actually in the "Trade Kessel" camp, but I also love him. I don't think that makes me an idiot, though I'm sure plenty of you would disagree. I just think that a complete teardown and rebuild would do this organization a lot of good, and also, a trade would do Phil Kessel a lot of good. He doesn't deserve this.
