Good morning. It's still October, but not yet the fun day. The Leafs have three games for us again this week, but today is a quiet day. Maybe Sheldon Keefe will give us a trick with the lines at practice.

Tuesday @ 8:00 p.m. vs. the LA Kings
Thursday @ 7:30 p.m. @ the Boston Bruins
Saturday @ 7:00 p.m. vs. the Buffalo Sabres

Only two weeks from now the Leafs will jet off to Sweden to play in the NHL Global Series which will result in only two games over twelve days through mid-November, and both those games are at weird times of day with one starting at 8:00 a.m. ET on a Sunday, so get your fill of the regular schedule time games in now!

The Marlies once again split their weekend games with a win and a loss (in OT) to the Belleville Senators. They will now head out on the road for real starting in a few days to play back-back games in Laval against the Rocket on Saturday and Sunday. Here's where the division standings are as of last night.
