This team does know that the Olympic Break is over, right? I mean, the first line is still chugging away as if they never missed a beat (because they didn't) but the Leafs entered tonight having lost their first two games since returning. The opening twenty and final five minutes displayed a team that looked ready to snap the trend. The rest of the game displayed something that was worse than the opposite, which lead to a 2-1 loss.

Today is Canadian Armed Forces day at Ricoh Coliseum, which means hockey, soliders, camo jerseys, and... Jerry D'Amigo Bobbleheads? I'm not 100% sure where the last one ties into the others, but the fans certainly weren't complaining. Most important was the hockey though, and the Toronto Marlies took on the Lake Erie Monsters in their last game of the weekend, and homestead. They did so by ending it all on a high note, with three third period goals being the difference in a 5-2 victory.

Connor Brown (Erie, OHL)

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but with only 10 points in his last 10 games, Connor Brown is currently in mired in his coldest points streak of the season. And that’s not meant to be construed as a negative statement, but a confirmation of just how well Brown has played this year.

Brown’s 115 points (42 goals, 74 assists) in just 62 games so far this season make him the highest scoring player in not only the OHL, but the entire CHL. He’s been so dominant, that some believe he’s the early favourite to walk away with the OHL’s Red Tilson Trophy for the league’s most outstanding player.
