After the jump: the single-biggest story in the NHL last week, a mess of trades, injuries, and trade rumours, how bloggers are once again undermining Western society, and Graphic Comments. Also - and this is important - the Winnipeg Jets' all-time greatest moustaches.

The Toronto Maple Leafs beat a provincial rival 3-0 on a Saturday night. This is somewhat mitigated by the fact that the opposing team, tonight the Ottawa Senators, had to dress two players who have sweater numbers in the 60s and three with sweater numbers in the 50s.
Ben Scrivens though, played very well in his first career shutout, despite the fact that the majority of the Senators' shots came were long-range or mid-range attempts from poor angles. He looked good positionally, but mostly the defence was good around him and the Sens didn't get a lot of second chances. Or first chances.
Frazer McLaren's ass, Tyler Bozak's skate and John-Michael Liles from 131 feet out are your goal scorers in this one.

Hershey, Pennsylvania is the land of opportunity, chocolate, and Washington Capitals prospects. They have fan support like nobody else, with Bears jerseys littering Ricoh Coliseum despite the distance away. It was an important game for the Toronto Marlies, who continue to struggle out of the post-lockout gate. New emergency addition Drew MacIntyre made an unexpected debut, but peformed spectacular in it, leading the Marlies to their first win in three games.

Ah, Patrick Lalime. Hey, remember the playoffs? Good times.
The Sens ownership doesn't want Leafs fans going to games in Ottawa. Luckily for Sens fans, the Leafs' owners enjoy selling tickets. Just gotta work on that whole "making the playoffs" thing. Technicalities...
Here's what you need to know for tonight's Sens vs. Leafs game.

One of the Leafs' worst performances so far. Some questions, and believe it or not, some positives.
