New, comments

Ristolainen will at least get to see Polak coming out of the penalty box sometime in a few days.

NHL: Buffalo Sabres at Toronto Maple Leafs Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

The Leafs trounced the Sabres last night and despite what Rasmus Ristolainen may think, it was definitely the last time these two teams will play each other this season.

There’s only two regular season games left, folks! The first is against the Devils in New Jersey on Thursday. The final game is against the Leafs’ castoffs who play for the Habs on Saturday. Both games start at 7:00 PM.

Then... PLAYOFFS!!!!111!

Don’t forget the Marlies’ regular season goes on for another week. They have a morning school day game against possible first-round playoff opponent Utica Comets (Canucks affiliates) on Thursday. They travel for a few days but are back next weekend for the final two home games on the 14th and 15th.
