For a while, it looked like the Toronto Marlies were going to have a repeat of yesterday's shocking shutout loss to the Utica Comets. But tonight's game against the Rochester Americans did have a few signs of life in it, even if it provided the same unwelcomed result, in the form of a 4-2 loss.

For the Toronto Maple Leafs, this wasn't a night for the present, but one for the future. One where the focus wasn't on tthe players who skated through the last sixtyish games kicking and screaming, but for the ones just starting their NHL careers in hopes of being ready next year. In a night that began as a look back at Dion Phaneuf's tenure, it was the young blood that ran the show in a - wait for it - hard fought, thoroughly controlled, one-goal regulation loss.

It's going to be a very different looking Battle of Ontario this evening, with Dion Phaneuf returning to Toronto for the first time since being traded to Ottawa nearly a month ago. And while I'm very excited/blessed to be watching William Nylander and all the other youngsters playing in the NHL, I'm most excited to see which Leaf will challenge Phaneuf to a fight. I'm assuming it's going to be one of the newer Leafs, so my money is on... hmmm... Colin Greening? Yeah. Colin Greening.

Nobody truly expects the Toronto Marlies to be invincible, especially with all of the team's brightest young talent up with the Leafs, but that doesn't stop the rare losses from stinging, even if just a little. Today's might hurt more than others, though, as the team were shut out for the first time this season in a 4-0 loss to the Utica Comets.
