We entered Friday’s game with plenty of storylines. James Reimer was getting his third consecutive start, Jake Gardiner was re-entering the lineup after two games in the press box and the Leafs were looking for their third win in a row after starting the year with two straight losses. 

Unfortunately, it all came tumbling down tonight in a game that saw the Leafs lose 4-1 on home ice, culminating in a Phaneuf jersey thrown on the ice near the end of the game.

After down-and-up opening weekend, the Toronto Marlies had their first road game of the season. It wasn't much of a trip, though; rather an hour drive across the QEW to take on the Hamilton Bulldogs, a team that they'll face eleven more times in the regular season. It's a good thing they're so close, though, seeing as the Marlies have games tomorrow and Sunday as well. If you're going to be tired, you may as well be less tired. In any event, tonight was a good start to the weekend; Toronto walked away with a 3-2 overtime win.

Is there anything more exciting than a two game win streak? Apparently a three game win streak is a possibility. The last time the Leafs had one of these was on March 10th last season. Following that win the Leafs picked up just six points in the next fifteen games. Memories.

Tonight the Leafs host the Detroit Red Wings to kick off a two night home and home series to determine who is the most middle team in the Hotlantic Division. The two game series is also a great chance to reflect on how awful Jonas Gustavsson was (and still is) and how better off the Leafs would be now if they chased Long Term Injury Reserve Aficionado Stephen Weiss in the summer of 2013 instead of David Clarkson.
