Fresh off picking up five of six possible points on their Western Canada road trip, the Maple Leafs have a challenging week ahead. After defeating the Oilers last night, they now head back home to prepare for four games over six days, the last of which will be on the road in Ottawa. First up are the first place Lightning, but the Leafs defeated them handily in their last encounter. Maybe they can do it again?

The Furies lost game two of their series against the Inferno last night. Game 3 will decide who advances tonight.

One of the Canadiennes volunteered to put all the skates and blades in her Jeep because her schedule worked better. And, you see, that’s where the story goes for a turn.
“We got a call at about 11, I believe that’s when she woke up,” Emard said. “And it was like ‘[Karell], my Jeep is gone’. And I was like ‘I’m sorry, what? You’re joking right?’”
It was no joke. The black Jeep was stolen, along with all of their equipment.

I hope you all remembered to change the time on those pesky clocks that don’t update on their own. Have a nice Sunday!
