NHL: Toronto Maple Leafs at Ottawa Senators Marc DesRosiers-USA TODAY Sports

The Leafs are on quite a winning streak. The team is now sitting at a certain place in the standings, which I won’t write here, with several games in hand on most of the teams above them.

Everyone’s talking about it. BUT DON’T SAY THE WORD! You’ll ruin it!

The Marlies on the other hand are sinking further behind with a 3-2 loss at home to the Amerks and are sliding down the division standings.

The Furies took a heartbreaking 4-3 loss last night as the Brampton Beast scored their fourth goal with only night seconds left on the clock. It was especially sad because all the PPPPeople were there! We still had lots of fun. Thanks, to everyone who came out.
