Connor Brown (Erie, OHL)

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but with only 10 points in his last 10 games, Connor Brown is currently in mired in his coldest points streak of the season. And that’s not meant to be construed as a negative statement, but a confirmation of just how well Brown has played this year.

Brown’s 115 points (42 goals, 74 assists) in just 62 games so far this season make him the highest scoring player in not only the OHL, but the entire CHL. He’s been so dominant, that some believe he’s the early favourite to walk away with the OHL’s Red Tilson Trophy for the league’s most outstanding player.

It's a matchup that never gets old. Once about being the face of English Canada vs. the face of French Canada, the Leafs and Habs rivalry is still about two powerhouse organizations. Tons of money. Tons of fans. Tons of history. Two pretty good teams, as well. It's always a fun night to watch, and it was going to get even better with a Sochi Semifinal rematch. James van Riemsdyk and Phil Kessel vs Carey... what? Peter Budaj started? Whatever. It's still a rivalry game with lots of points implications, and it landed in the favour of the Bleu, Blanc, et Rouge, by a score of 4-3.

The Leafs/Habs rivalry is one of the biggest, longest lasting, and most important rivalries in all of professional sports. To remind us of this, the American Hockey League's schedule involves their affiliates facing each other twice in the preseason, twelve times in the regular season, and potentially a best of seven playoff series.

I know I complain about this every time. It's not even anybody's fault; this league relies on bus travel and it makes things easier. But it's still a bit annoying. Except when the big clubs are playing on the same night, then there's a certain cool factor involved. What isn't cool for the blue and white, however, is a loss, which they walked away with today.
