NHL: Ottawa Senators at Toronto Maple Leafs John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

It was not a good night for our favourite teams.

The Leafs lost last night’s game in the most frustrating way possible: a shootout. Another shootout loss; maybe they should practice for those...

[Species: Mirtle doesn’t like it, but I think it’s fun once and a while.]

The Marlies continued their brutal road trip, swinging through Bridgeport MA CT last night, picking up an unfortunate 4-3 loss. Goals were from Johnsson, Findlay, and Dermott (his first ever AHL goal).

The Solar Bears were defeated by the Everblades 5-2. Darik Angeli did get this nice goal for the bears.

The Toronto Furies are hosting the Calgary Inferno this weekend. Last night they lost 4-1. Natalie Spooner got the lone Furies goal.

The Furies play the Inferno again today at the MasterCard Centre at 12:30PM. It’s their last home game of the season. You should go to the game! It’s a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Tickets are $15, and there’s lots of free parking at the MCC. There’s a full service snack bar with a surprisingly large variety of hot food and snacks.

If you can’t make it to the MCC, you can tune in to this game on TV!

Let that sink in a moment.

They Coyotes went on to defeat Tampa 5-3. The Lightning are in a total meltdown. They’ve dropped to second last in the east, only one point ahead of the Islanders, who have four games in hand. They may well end up last in the eastern conference. Absolutely no one predicted that.
