The leader in streakcred - Rmo2000 - has now crashed and burned and his streak is over at 8 wins in a row. In fact the entire top 20 players in the game have all lost their streaks and everyone is starting again from zero. This is the time for the second wave of people looking to play to get involved.

We need you Nation, team entries are lagging way behind what we thought they would be by now. Keep reading after the jump if you want to see your ol' pal Wanye beg you to support deserving charities.

The good news is that it doesn't appear the Toronto Maple Leafs will try to win Game 2 of their Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series with Frazer McLaren in the lineup. The bad news is that they'll try to win it without Clarke MacArthur.

Paul Hendrick tweeted out the projected lineup changes this morning: Ryan Hamilton and Matt Frattin in. Clarke MacArthur and Frazer McLaren out.

Face Punches vs. Scoring Punch

The Toronto Maple Leafs practiced today, with new lines. Lupul-Bozak-Kessel is back together, Jake Gardiner may actually play, and a bit more shuffling went down too. But here’s something that bugs me.

Colton Orr appears to be in tomorrow’s lineup, skating on line three. Matt Frattin isn’t. This, at least in my eyes, is a terrible idea.

Hemming and hawing about line combinations

Leafs practice at Boston University (via @mirtle)

So Mike Kostka broke his finger at some point during Game 1. I have a hard time believing after his performance in that game that he'd draw back into the lineup for Game 2 regardless, but with the injury we can put him on the shelf, probably for the rest of the season. He'll probably end up as a free agent this summer, sign with a team like Pittsburgh and have success with a team that deploy hockey players like rational adults, or he'll sign with a team like Carolina and have success with a team that has a truckload of ex-Maple Leafs.

But the injury does open up a roster spot for Game 2 of the series that runs on Saturday. The smart money is that Ryan O'Byrne gets the call, because he's a right-shooter, and it's the playoffs so it's more physical and blah blah blah blah blah.

Either way, Jake Gardiner is probably not going to see time unless the team really needs to do something drastic.
