Yesterday some of the Maple Leafs played in Montréal. You can catch up on that glorious game if you missed it here:
In other news, the Leafs did not trade for a goalie after they did trade for Ilya Lyubushkin. They did not get to keep Ryan Dzingel, however.

We discuss the deal that brings the former Coyotes defender to the Leafs
Jake Muzzin was hurt in an accidental collision with Chris Wideman in the game last night and left in the second period, with what looked like a head injury. Wideman looked fairly uncomfortable himself after although he finished the game.

The Sharks, who just claimed Dzingel, are playing the “we may or may not trade you” game with Tomas Hertl:
As I mentioned on @NHLNetwork a couple hours ago, the Sharks have expressed their desire to retain Hertl, but have yet to table a formal offer. That's expected in the next week or two. Then, we'll see. https://t.co/n7rxiXHNJb— David Pagnotta (@TheFourthPeriod) February 21, 2022
Not every team is losing:
Lots of talk this afternoon regarding this stick incident involving @Avalanche MacKinnon and @NHL official. #NHL hockey operations have investigated it with officials and all concluded zero intent. No further review I’m told will be necessary. #RealKyperandBourne @FAN590 https://t.co/WG00WvBAbR— Nick Kypreos (@RealKyper) February 22, 2022
The Leafs are playing tonight in Columbus. We’ve asked them nicely not to, but they’re determined to go ahead.

Sheldon Keefe says Ilya Lyubushkin will skate tomorrow morning & then they'll make a decision about whether he plays at CBJ @TSN_Edge— Mark Masters (@markhmasters) February 22, 2022
That’s it for now, when we have updates on Muzzin or anything else, you’ll likely post a tweet before we do.
Happy Tuesday, everyone.

Very interesting timing on this that makes it hard to believe this is about justice of any kind.
