It’s Saturday night: Hockey Night in Canada! Well, it’s not really, but keep chatting here.

The Leafs are playing the Senators at the ACC. It’s the final game between these teams for the season. No, the Senators haven’t been mathematically eliminated yet, but, there is no way they are making up the 13 point deficit to make the playoffs.

It’s one of those games you know is going to be entertaining. It’s the battle of Ontario!

The game time is listed as 7:00PM. Expect puck drop to actually be about 7:20. We’ll have a preview of the game later this morning, in the meantime here’s news from around the world of hockey.

The Marlies played the baby Senators last night and won 7-4. Check out Soshnikov’s moves here.

Mason Marchment made a triumphant return with two goals. That’s seven total over 23 games this season.

The Marlies are playing at Ricoh Coliseum tonight and it’s Star Wars night!
