It's Valentine's Day, and whether you buy into the whole thing or not, everyone is talking about love, so let's get to it. Games like last Saturday night's can be a strain on my relationship. Not only do I get grumpy when the Leafs lose (I'm sure many of you are familiar with this feeling), but to make matters worse, my fiancée is a Habs fan.

I hope you all have your ear trumpets spit polished and ready to go, because Julian Sanchez and Kent Wilson joined me this week for The Leafs Nation's third ever podcast. With Kent around, there's bound to be some Flames chatter, and a handful of Matt Stajan jokes, so follow me over the jump for a listen.

The Toronto Marlies had an interesting week, to say the least. One that started with a few hours of entertainment given to a full house of elementary school students and concluded with a scene that parents would prefer their kids look away from.
In better news, though - it started with a win, and ended with another, spreading the Marlies divisional lead to seven points.

The best part of your season production-wise so far was probably November and early December. Why would you say your production went downhill since then?
I don't know if it went downhill. I wouldn't put it that way. Obviously, I was up and down. My production hasn't been constant because I wasn't in the same league. I was just playing simple, tried to get some pucks deep and also getting bounces. As a hockey player sometimes you can do things right and not score. And then you would all of a sudden have a great game and product 4-5 points. It definitely goes both ways.
