It’s now three wins in a row for the Leafs.

The Maple Leafs win streak was extended to three games last night with a win against the Red Wings and a bizarre goalie change situation as a side show to the victory.

Here’s our recap of last night’s game.

The Leafs have a Black Friday special game tomorrow at 4:00 p.m. against the Sabres. Yes, you read that time correctly. There’s a whole slew of matinee games tomorrow for post-turkey viewing.

I can’t recall the last time the Marlies and Leafs played on the same day and the Marlies started their game after the Leafs, but it will happen tomorrow. They will be on the ice at 7:00 p.m. in Utica, probably sad they weren’t in Albany for a Thanksgiving meal of delicious steamed hams. They will however be back in Toronto on Saturday for their of matinee game at the Scotiabank Arena.
