There were no great Black Friday deals for the Maple Leafs in Chicago yesterday, losing in OT 4-3 during a matinee game. Here's our recap and post-gamer complaints section:

Recap: Maple Leafs Lose to Chicago in Overtime
Leafs play really well until they don’t.

And we can't talk about losing this game without noting Nylander's point streak coming to an end because somehow this shot did not go in the net.

The Leafs are back playing today against the Penguins at the regular time for Hockey Night in Canada. We'll have our preview for that game out later this morning.

The Marlies also lost after regulation yesterday in Cleveland, falling 2-1 in the shootout. One highlight was seeing Ovchinnikov back and still in fine form, scoring his sixth goal in nine games here.

The Marlies and Monsters have a rematch here in Toronto on Sunday at 4:00 p.m..

In Leafs prospects news one of the top up and comers is on the move:

Fraser Minten traded to Saskatoon
A trade in the WHL with Leafs interest.

The word from our WHL watchers is this move is good for for Minten since the Kamloops Blazers were far down the standings and likely not a playoff team, but the situation is quite the opposite in Saskatoon. He will now also be on the same team as another Leafs draft pick, Brandon Lisowsky.

And one more Leafs prospect hit the highlight reel last night too.

Because of the holiday in the US, there hasn't been much other NHL team news to cover, so I will close off here and say simply enjoy your weekend. It's one month to Christmas from today.
