With two preseason games over and done with, the Toronto Maple Leafs have made their first set of cuts. Frederick Gauthier, Ryan Rupert, and Kevin Raine (non-signed invite) were sent to their respective junior teams for another year of development, but in the short term, they've also cut eleven other players, who have found their way to the Toronto Marlies roster in anticipation of their training camp.

Starting off the 2013-14 season of LFR a little early!

The Leafs lost a preseason game. We'll be holding a jersey-burning ceremony outside of the Air Canada Centre tomorrow at noon. Bring your flame-throwers.

Seriously though, the Leafs lost a tight game to the Philadelphia Flyers 3-2 at the Air Canada Centre.

The lovely and talented Cam Charron usually writes the postgame blogs here at TLN, but he's out saving kittens from trees and talking to dozens of beautiful women right now, so I'm going to fill in for him. This isn't going to be a very stats-heavy post. Instead, it will be more on what I noticed.

-The world is pumped to see Trevor Smith's Maple Leafs debut

After a 4-3 win last night, the Toronto Maple Leafs take to the ice again against the Philadelphia Flyers. They will have a similar roster to last night's contest in London while the Leafs will swap out 17 players, giving fans our first look of the season at Phil Kessel, James van Riemsdyk and Tyler Bozak. We'll also see Trevor Smith and T.J. Brennan make their anticipated Leafs debuts, and to a lesser extent, David Clarkson and Jonathan Bernier.

I think our impressions of the Flyers last night were less than positive. A couple of their goals made their way through screens, and Philly's defence looked awful to start the game. The Leafs' first four shots were all excellent scoring chances, and it isn't a ringing endorsement of Steve Mason to point out that all of them went in, although the first 10 minutes of a preseason contest isn't the place to judge a goaltender.
