The Toronto Maple Leafs have played sixty four games this season. In nineteen of those games, they had a lead in the third period that they allowed the opposition to eliminate. Until today. Today.. it went up to twenty.

You'd think this would get more attention, but somehow, it's flown under the radar. Much like New York's penalty killing unit did tonight, until it was too late to react. Thankfully for the Leafs though, the Rangers only got to the "Game Tying Goal" stage tonight, as Tyler Bozak's two goals were the difference maker in a 3-2 overtime victory, their first since the Olympic break.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have made a big splash today, trading nobody to no team in particular for the rights to absolutely nothing. Nothing, a 0th round pick in the 0000 NHL Entry Draft, has been praised as a "no mistakes, sneaky" player, and while he offers no offensive presence, will never come back to haunt his team.

No, seriously. The deadline has passed, and the Leafs have made no trades.

LIVEBLOG: Trade Deadline Day

The National Hockey League's trade deadline is approaching. Not in a few weeks, or days. We're talking hours. It's time for teams to decide whether they're serious about making the next step towards the greatest trophy in all of sports, or perhaps parachute out of the season.

This year's deadline is particularly interesting. The salary cap's limited increase last year puts the league at a level where much it's teams are lacking room to work with, meaning some serious creativity will be required to make a lot of moves work. Lots of teams have found themselves surprise buyers or sellers. Also, for whatever reason, no goalie is safe.

As for the Leafs, none of us are really sure what they're going do today. I don't even think Dave Nonis knows. We do know that 1.2 million dollars were freed this week by waiving Frazer McLaren and Trevor Smith, and that in a perfect world, a number one centre and number two defenceman would be heading to Toronto today.

This is a live blog of the day's events, coming to you from the Mastercard Centre of Hockey Excellence in Etobicoke. Updates are in newest-to-oldest order, with the most recent just under this line.
