Good morning, Toronto Maple Leafs and Marlies fans! It's a Saturday in the second round of the NHL playoffs but there's no Toronto Maple Leafs game tonight.
This is complete nonsense.
But what isn't complete nonsense is the Toronto Marlies run in the AHL playoffs! Last night the Marlies defeated the Utica Comets (NJ) 4-1 last night to win their best of five second round series.
They will play the winner of Syracuse (TB) vs Rochester (BUF) in the North Division final.
In the OHL, the Sarnia Sting lost 5-2 last night to the London Knights, and now trail 3-2 in their Western Conference Final. Ty Voit has one assist.
For Leafs prospects tonight, the Newfoundland Growlers open their second round ECHL playoff series against the Reading Royals at 7PM.
Fraser Minten and the Kamloops Blazers try to stay alive in their WHL Western Conference Final series against the Seattle Thunderbirds. They're down 3-1 and game five is at 9:50PM Toronto time.
There was only one NHL playoff game last night, and the Carolina Hurricanes defeated the New Jersey Devils 6-1, and took a 2-0 series lead.
We got some bad news about our rookie, and this is why we can't have Knies things.
The Montreal Canadiens hold the Florida Panthers first round pick. Are they now saying Go Leafs Go?
There will be some new teams in the top level of the Men's World Championship next year: Poland and Great Britain!
And let's end on a great note to put you in a good mood, with an own goal!
Enjoy your Leafs free Saturday everyone!
