MINNEAPOLIS MN - DECEMBER 12: Cars pass the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome Mall of America Stadium where the inflatable roof collapsed under the weight of snow during a storm Sunday morning December 12 2010 in Minneapolis Minnesota. A blizzard dumped more than 20 inches of snow in parts of the Midwest forcing the NFL football game between the New York Giants and the Minnesota Vikings to be postponed till Monday and will be played in Detroit's Ford Field. There were no injuries reported from the collapse of the dome. (Photo by Tom Dahlin/Getty Images)

Recap over at the Globe and Mail via The Associated Press. My guess is that Mirtle couldn't make the game with the inclement weather.

This is the recap from over at In Lou We Trust, so go read what they thought of our squad last night.

Changes coming to underachieving Leafs roster
"It’s believed by team sources that Burke “owes” Wilson at least a trade to shake up the underachieving roster up and give the coach an improved opportunity to rescue the team’s badly fading playoff hopes."

Focusing on Nazem Kadri
Michael Langlois over at Vintage Leaf Memories has a shift-by-shift breakdown of Kadri's play against New Jersey.
