Hershey, Pennsylvania is the land of opportunity, chocolate, and Washington Capitals prospects. They have fan support like nobody else, with Bears jerseys littering Ricoh Coliseum despite the distance away. It was an important game for the Toronto Marlies, who continue to struggle out of the post-lockout gate. New emergency addition Drew MacIntyre made an unexpected debut, but peformed spectacular in it, leading the Marlies to their first win in three games.

Ah, Patrick Lalime. Hey, remember the playoffs? Good times.
The Sens ownership doesn't want Leafs fans going to games in Ottawa. Luckily for Sens fans, the Leafs' owners enjoy selling tickets. Just gotta work on that whole "making the playoffs" thing. Technicalities...
Here's what you need to know for tonight's Sens vs. Leafs game.

One of the Leafs' worst performances so far. Some questions, and believe it or not, some positives.

The Toronto Maple Leafs certainly didn't play like a plus-possession team tonight.
Nor did they play like a team belonging in the National Hockey League. Up against a team short two top-four defencemen in Tim Gleason and Joni Pitkanen, the Leafs failed to generate any sort of significant play in the offensive zone against a backup goaltender. They let both of the Carolina Hurricanes' top lines walk all over them, and the Leafs' two best defensive centres were a combined minus-8 in scoring chance differential.
Not one you'd totally want to relive. Carolina won its third straight and broke Toronto's four-game winning streak with a 3-1 win. But let's just say you did want to relive, and at least know which Leafs players to cuss out at during tomorrow's call-in shows?
