With the Marlies playing out the string with an eye towards the playoffs and the Maple Leafs doing nothing but trying to grind out a few wins in the role of a spoiler, the most exciting thing in Leafs Nation could very well be the start of the CHL playoffs. It's a chance to get to see Mitch Marner, Jeremy Bracco, et al against the top competition in their leagues as the attempt to take their teams on a run toward the Memorial Cup.

The Air Canada Centre has been a bit of an inconsistent beast for the Toronto Marlies, both this season and in years past. The same could be said for the St. John's IceCaps, who always put up a good fight against the future Leafs and in many ways, have been their kryptonite. Put the two together, and you have a recipe for a great game. Such was the case tonight, as the blue and white closed out the ACC series with a hard-fought 5-3 victory.

Tonight's game is rather insignificant from the Toronto's perspective. There's no Stanley Cup to be won this year, and say what you will about fighting for jobs next season but the vast majority of this group either won't be back at all or will simply inherit roster spots by default. That said, playing the spoiler is always fun, and Toronto will have an opportunity to do just that tonight when they host the Bruins.
This is a reeling Boston squad that's barely holding on to a playoff spot. Currently holding the third seed in the Atlantic Division with 86 points, the Detroit Red Wings sit only one point behind the B's with a game in hand. And while the rest of the Atlantic lags far behind, the Metropolitan Division has a number of teams in the wild card mix that could easily force the Bruins out of the postseason entirely. Boston have lost five straight games in regulation and desperately need a win tonight, against what should be an easy opponent, if they have any playoff aspirations.
