Another game, another debut. Tonight saw Frederik Gauthier slot in as the third-line centre, which is - in a way - Babcock throwing him to the wolves. "Hey this is what we envision you as in the future, get used to it." But because Gauthier is big and good at faceoffs, his debut naturally led to a better result than Connor Brown's.

After a late third-period rally against the Lehigh Valley Phantoms yesterday, the Toronto Marlies had their work cut out for them once again on Saturday afternoon. This time, they took on the Providence Bruins, who started the year off slow but have been one of the league's best teams over the past few months. In a game where the lead changed five times, the Bruins were the ones who ended up on top with a 5-4 result.

The Buffalo Sabres lose out on a lot of things. They lost out on Connor McDavid, they lost out on Mike Babcock, and they've lost pretty much every game they've played in the past several years. Those hoping for the tank to roll steady, though, know that the Sabres have been relatively good at securing rare victories against the Blue and White. Tonight, the two teams square off once again.

As mentioned in yesterday's preview, this is the final weekend of the OHL season. Last night we saw Mitch Marner and the London Knights pull into first place in the Western Conference for the first time all season with a 4-3 win over the Erie Otters. That result sets up tonight' rematch in Erie as on final showdown for first place and the top seed throughout the OHL playoffs. A regulation win by Travis Dermott and the Otters would pull them into a tie with London but Erie holds the tiebreaker and would gain first place thanks to an extra wins on the season.

Freddy Gauthier will be the 11th #leafs player to make his NHL debut this season.— Chris Johnston (@reporterchris) March 19, 2016
Frederik Gauthier is the latest Marlie to be set to make his NHL debut, slotting into the lineup tonight after being called up on an emergency basis (along with Josh Leivo, who's been floating between the teams so often it's easy to lose track of him.)
