The Leafs spent the past week playing some of their best hockey since the lockout-shortened season, and after a terrible 1-7-2 October, they are now enjoying a 4-2-2 November and though they are still just 2 points ahead of last place in the league, the spot hilariously occupied by the Edmonton Oilers. As much as I'd rather continue to explore how great it is that the Oilers are still the absolute worst team in the league, and probably always will be, there are legitimate good performances from the Leafs this week that need to be recognized, so I'll do that instead.

I sincerely didn't expect Toronto's goaltending to be garnering any accolades this season, but here we are - James Reimer is the NHL's third star of the week. Matt Duchene took home the top weekly honours while Mats Zuccarello was named second star.

Reimer went 3-0-0 in three games this week, with a .952 SV% and a 1.62 GAA. The 27-year old has made the most of his latest opportunity to run with the Leafs' net. Jonathan Bernier, who has yet to win a game this season, sat out for an extended period of time, allowing Reimer to find a groove and turn in stellar performance after stellar performance.

Well, after a three-game stretch where the Leafs did not really Leaf, the Leafs will decided that once again, they will Leaf. And oh, Leaf they did, giving up the winning goal in the final minute of regulation on a poor rebound play. In a somewhat promising game, a pair of glaring Jonathan Bernier errors spolied the Leafs' chances at picking up points, ultimately leaving a sour taste in the mouths of many in a 4-3 loss at Madison Square Garden to the Rangers.
