Despite limited opportunities with the big club and few months spent with other teams, TJ Brennan has been one of the most consistent people in the Leafs organization over the past few years. He's never vented his frustrations about not being called up, he's been a role model in the community, and when he's on the ice, he's shown himself capable of lifting the Toronto Marlies up by several notches.
Even when it seems like he's not having a standout night, he finds a way to surprise you. Tonight was a good example of that.

OK, so the Blue Jays losing stunk... but the Leafs finally grabbed their first win of the season! Against David Clarkson and the mighty Blue Jackets, no less!

It's time to finally (barbe)cue up this game - the Leafs' first date with the Penguins since sending them their top scorer over the summer in an attempt to clean things up for the Babcock "culture change" we're starting to see. For Toronto, it'll be the second half of a back-to-back, so usually the chances of getting grilled by Sid the Kid and company might be high, but the Penguins haven't exactly been off to a sizzling start themselves. It'll be no picnic for either team.

Hockey is a game of inches. Inches away from being offside. Inches away from getting your stick on an airborne puck. Inches away from covering the man. Inches away from your off-the-post shot going the other direction. Inches of hair away from your scalp as you rip it off your head in anxious frustration.
The Leafs provide a lot of anxious frustration. At times, the end results brought that tonight. But they played another game of fine hockey and were rewarded with their first win of the season, outscoring the Columbus Blue Jackets 6-3.
