Lost in both Toronto teams playing last night, Paul Ranger's unfortunate injury, and the never-ending goaltender drama, was the fact that Spencer Abbott set a Toronto Marlies single season record last night, notching his 51st and 52nd assists of the year, overtaking Tim Stapleton's record from 2008/09. That's all well and good, but there's a couple more things to touch up on.

James Reimer is one of my favourite Leafs, but it doesn't take a hater to note that Reimer is going through a rough stretch right now. After last night's performance against Tampa Bay, Reimer is currently playing through his worst 20 games in his NHL career, save percentage-wise.

Since November 25, Reimer has stopped 520 of 584 shots for an .890 save percentage.

The last two times that these two teams faced off, the games turned into sixty minute chains of fights. As such, it was only fair that tonight would feature as much actual hockey as possible. While one scrap got in the way of this, the two teams delivered sixty five minutes of hockey, a couple nice goals, and a new franchise record for the Blue and White, as the Toronto Marlies took home a 4-3 shootout win over the Lake Erie Monsters.

Leafs Postgame - Thunderstruck

The Toronto Maple Leafs really needed a better game tonight, after a deflating loss against the Detroit Red Wings 24 hours prior. They needed more from their top line, and they ended up playing pretty well. They needed James Reimer to play at least OK, and outside of the first minute, I think he accomplished that. Lastly, they needed the defence to not make the lapses in judgement it made the night before, but that part just didn't happen. They let Steven Stamkos run rampant, and that was enough to deliver a 5-3 loss at the Air Canada Centre.
