The Leafs were up 4-2 against the Florida Panthers heading into the third last night and ended up losing 6-4, outshot 35-17. It's a good thing they don't have to play the next night against the second-best team in the East or anything.

Surviving a three-in-three is hard, especially when the travel day is in the middle. For the Toronto Marlies, this was the scenario they had to power through this weekend; a game at Ricoh on Friday, a game in Rochester yesterday, and a final one on home ice today. Thankfully for them, the Adirondack flames were on their last day as well, having just played games in Utica and Hamilton. Both sides were using up the last of the gas in their tanks, but it was the Marlies who hit the throttle a little harder, winning 2-0.

Earlier today in the pregame post, I talked about how Florida wasn't that dangerous a team. Heading into tonight's matchup against the Leafs, the Panthers had scored the second fewest goals in the NHL, and were just slightly above average in preventing goals against. They should have been a team the Leafs could handle, but couldn't be taken lightly. They've got enough talent to burn you.

After snapping a three game skid in Dallas on Tuesday, the Toronto Maple Leafs will look to build their own winning streak against the Florida Panthers this evening. As the Panthers are one of the teams nipping at the heals of both Toronto and Washington, the Leafs would do well to secure a win in regulation and grow their playoff buffer.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas, ate your weight in delicious food and spent way too much time arguing with your relatives about your opposing political viewpoints. You know, the TRUE meaning of the holidays!
