Something to remember as teams rapidly tailspin their way into the bottom of the standings? The thirtieth place team isn't as likely to win the draft lottery as they were in previous years. In fact, you only have a one in five shot to end up with Connor McDavid, which realistically means that the Buffalo Sabres are tanking for Jack Eichel. The Leafs are trying their best to catch down to them, however, and had a chance to give the Sabres a big two points tonight. The end result? Well, they gave them one, but unfortunately for the tank, kept a pair for themselves as well.

While the Maple Leafs try their very best to lose to the Buffalo Sabres, the Toronto Marlies are gunning for victories. Lots of them. As many as they can get, really, as they push towards a playoff spot that nobody expected them to even approach. Tonight, they continued to chase the dream, taking on the Leigh Valley Phantoms in rare weekday evening game.

On Friday, first-place Toronto visits third-place Buffalo in one of the hottest games of the year.
But unless you're a follower of the National Lacrosse League, you're stuck with the less-exciting Toronto-Buffalo matchup of the week, with the Sabres coming to visit the Maple Leafs tonight.

Nazem Kadri made international news this weekend by not showing up on time to a hastily scheduled meeting the morning following a loss. This lead to him being sent home, getting scratched for Monday's game, and his public acknowledgment of how he was sorry.
This morning Brendan Shanahan, addressed the media in a hallway scrum to let the world know that it goes much deeper than this one incident, and that Kadri will sit for an additional two games.

Andrew MacWilliam has been called up on an emergency basis from the Toronto Marlies. The 24-year-old defenseman has played 53 games with the Marlies this season, earning 7 points. He's been in the organization for 7 years now (drafted in the 7th round in 2008), and will finally be playing with the big club. If nothing else, it's a good story.
