Garret Sparks Returning to Marlies, Bernier Back to Leafs

The Toronto Maple Leafs have seven days to go before they next take the ice in a game.. and apparently, the club will be pretty busy moving players up and down in that time. 

The Leafs, according to TSN's Jonas Siegel, will be bringing Jonathan "Nelson Mandela" Bernier back up from the AHL's Toronto Marlies next week for the game against the Tampa Bay Lightning. 

James Reimer, in addition, is expected to be ready to play; that means that the Leafs will no longer be carrying a goaltending tandem made up of their two AHL prospects heading into their game on the 15th. 

Translation? Garret Sparks is headed back to the Toronto Marlies.

Leafs Postgame: Sparks Fly

Leafs win! 

If you didn't watch the Leafs as they took on Lou Lamoriello's old New Jersey Devils club (albeit with a heavy facelift), you honestly missed out. 

What did you miss, you might ask? 

You missed a pair of good goaltenders. 

You missed strong offensive rushes by defensemen. 

You missed special teams battles. 

You missed James van Hockey scoring. 

Most of all, though, you missed an onslaught of Garden State references by The Leafs Nation. And that, my friends, is a damn shame.

The following is a post that goaltender Garret Sparks wrote for my oft-ignored side project, The Faceoff Circle, and his Facebook Goalie Group, GGSU in February 2015. With Sparks now being the talk of the town as the Leafs' temporary starting goaltender, we both thought that this would be a good time to re-release this to a different audience. Enjoy!

LGD: Devilish

This is the last Leafs game you'll see until December 15th, so take the time to savour this one because it's gonna have to hold you.

It seems cruel that the last game before 7 nights off comes against the Devils. I mean, I guess the Wild would have been worse, but can you think of a team that's more boring, and you care about less than the Devils? (excluding the Wild)

I guess the story we're gonna get beaten down with tonight is that it's the first time Lou Lamoriello's team faces the Devils. I can't bring myself to care about that at all, but if that's your bag, cool.
