Every time the Leafs and Flyers meet, a few things come to mind. One, the whole Luke Schenn/James van Riemsdyk dynamic (Schenn was a minus-1 . . . sucker). Two, fights. With David Clarkson injuring himself in Friday’s practice, Frazer McLaren found himself back in the lineup, which meant a physical game against the Broadstreet Bullies was inevitable.

Frazer McLaren wasn't around to "set the tone", or whatever you want to call it in today's game (he's been called up in case of Clarkson-emergency), but I don't think he was particularly necessary. After all, the Toronto Marlies and Lake Erie Monsters were just hours removed from one of the scrappiest games the American Hockey League has seen this season. Steve Spott called out the referees as poorly controlling yesterday's mess, so really, it came as no surprise that the two teams took the opportunity to settle their differences in the way the wanted to today.
At the same time, there was still a matter of the scoreboard, and a hat trick was the difference in a 4-1 Marlies win.
