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.

Leafs Prospect Update: March 2, 2014

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.

Leafs Postgame: Sacrebleu

It's a matchup that never gets old. Once about being the face of English Canada vs. the face of French Canada, the Leafs and Habs rivalry is still about two powerhouse organizations. Tons of money. Tons of fans. Tons of history. Two pretty good teams, as well. It's always a fun night to watch, and it was going to get even better with a Sochi Semifinal rematch. James van Riemsdyk and Phil Kessel vs Carey... what? Peter Budaj started? Whatever. It's still a rivalry game with lots of points implications, and it landed in the favour of the Bleu, Blanc, et Rouge, by a score of 4-3.
