Garret Sparks may have been the story of last night's Leafs game, but he's been making waves for quite some time before his NHL debut. For example, did you know that he spent the entirety of November ripping up the league below? The American Hockey League noticed, and today declared him their Goaltender of the Month for November.

It looks like Joffrey Lupul's nagging ailment needs a little moe than temporary rest. At least, that's what today's roster decisions would have you believe, as the Toronto Maple Leafs have placed him on injured reserve for the duration of their Western Conference road trip.

After watching William Nylander wow the crowds for Team Sweden at the 2015 World Junior Championship - and battling mixed feels over the chemistry of Max Domi and Anthony Duclair for Team Canada, as neither truly benefit us in the long run - Leafs fans are long overdue for their World Juniors superstar to take home a gold medal.

When this game was identified on the schedule a couple of months ago, Leafs fans knew it was going to be a special night. It was circled as one of the must-see's of the year. It was going to be the night of a young rookie, developed by Toronto, playing his guts out in front of 18000 fans at the Air Canada Centre.

It was a player on the other team that was the expected attraction, but in hindsight, I'm sure the crowd preferred what they got from tonight's 3-0 Leafs victory instead.
