Morin scores first goal in the Leafs organization as Marlies finish first half of season with victory

Before we even talk about the game, I want to devote a moment to the jerseys you see in front of you. These are the Manitoba Moose. The thing on the front of the jersey is not a Moose. It is decidedly a polar bear.

I don't even mind; it's a great polar bear. Supposedly, this was the branding, under the Manitoba Polar Bears name that True North would have used if the NHL didn't let them take back the Winnipeg Jets branding. So, with a sponsorship deal in place with a local zoo, they brought them out for the night.

As it happens, the Moose not only didn't show up as a crest, they didn't exactly show up as a team either, making tonight a very easy night for the Toronto Marlies, who easily walked away with a 4-1 victory.

Leafs Postgame: Well, That Was Ugly

In the pregame post earlier today, I complained that every time I count the Toronto Maple Leafs out, they seem to pull out a win. So, I called it the other way. I predicted the Leafs would handily beat the San Jose Sharks by a score of 5-1, and that Tyler Bozak would score two goals.

Never. Ever. Listen to me.

The Sharks made quick work of the Leafs tonight, taking advantage of a completely brain-dead Toronto team that could neither score a goal or prevent one from being scored on them. San Jose gets the 7-0 shutout win, and I feel great embarrassment and will never write another pregame post again.

We've finally got an update on William Nylander's status following a blindside hit-to-the-head that knocked him out of the World Juniors Championships, and unfortunately, it's not great.

According to Damien Cox on Saturday Headlines, Nylander's concussion symptoms prevented him from flying back to Toronto from Helsinki until this past Wednesday. Now that he's back and under the Leafs medical staff's care, he'll begin his return-to-play concussion protocol.

LGD: Leafs Visit San Jose

The last time these two teams met just a few weeks back, Garret Sparks got the start and immediately got injured. Jonathan Bernier would come on in relief and give up five goals in a 5-4 OT loss to the Sharks. Tonight, Bernier will get an opportunity to exact some revenge. Not only for the loss, but for the loss of his goaltending comrade.

We miss you, Garret. <3
