Rest for Andersen benefits both goaltenders

Mike Babcock has a plan for Andersen and Sparks usage down the stretch. That might comfort a lot of people, but it doesn’t really comfort me. You see, I’d really like Andersen playing as little as possible, since, I dunno, when he’s in he’s often looked like a guy who needs a night off, and…

Teenagers Sandin, Liljegren Thriving in Marlies Top Four

Very few teenaged defenceman crack AHL rosters, let alone play prominent roles for their NHL-affliate before their 20th birthday. However, with the Toronto Maple Leafs organization having so many injured defenceman, the Toronto Marlies have been forced to rely heavily on the franchises two most recent first round picks; 18-year-old Rasmus Sandin and 19-year-old Timothy…
