Leafs Post Game - Quack Quack, Mr. Badstick

Some may say that this road tour of California is one that will give the Leafs a rude awakening. While there's a lot of potential for that to be true; it's better to look at it from a different angle. Any team that wants to make a serious dent come playoff time should be capable of keeping up with the best. The Anaheim Ducks are technically the second best at the moment, but that's still a pretty high hurdle to face. After all, they've more or less clinched themselves a playoff spot already! That's pretty dominant.

But give the Leafs some credit; they pulled out a surprising win to get the trip underway, beating the Ducks by a score of 3-1.

"Shouldn't the Leafs game be on right now?" Not exactly. The west coast is lame, and time zones are lamer, so the Leafs still have a couple of hours before they drop the puck. We'll talk about that game soon, but for now, how about answering a couple of questions? Without further ado..

I was going to use some picture from the Mighty Ducks movies, but this random picture of Joffrey Lupul playing for the Anaheim Ducks' old AHL affiliate was too good to pass up.

The Leafs head into tonight's clash with the Anaheim Ducks in a pretty good spot. They've got 76 points, good for third in the Atlantic. They sit five points up on both Columbus and Detroit for a playoff spot. The playoffs look like a pretty safe bet for Toronto.

Except tonight they enter Death Valley.

Marlies fall to Penguins in shootout

Not to be outdone by the Leafs' tradition of honoring teams that won so long ago that they're irrelevant to the organization today, the Toronto Marlies made a point to honour the 1960 Memorial Cup winning Toronto Marlboros. Despite the team playing at a completely different level, not to mention 54 years ago, it was still a pretty cool pre-game ceremony. Plus, we got to see a ceremonial faceoff involving two of the best jerseys outside of the NHL, which is always nice.

Also, hockey! Yes, it was a game of shots and not punches, but one that Wilkes-Barre/Scranton managed to get a little bit more out of, edging the Marlies by a score of 4-3 in the shootout.
