The Leafs have their longest winning streak in the salary cap era. Yeah, really. They won their seventh game in a row last night against Colorado on the back of Tyler Bertuzzi's birthday hat trick. The last time the Leafs won seven in a row they won eight in 2003-04.... PRE SALARY CAP!

Recap: Tyler Bertuzzi scores three on his birthday
Rewrite your Bertuzzi narrative, and have them ready for review by tomorrow morning.

Also in history, Bert became the first Leafs since Grabbo in 2012 to score two goals on his birthday.

And in case this was missed, Simon Benoit returned to the game after leaving for an injury.

Joseph Woll could be back with the Leafs soon, who will have to run three goalies in order to keep everyone.

Adding to the records, Easton Cowan set a franchise record in London with points in 26 consecutive games. He's still a few away from Doug Gilmour's OHL record of 55.

The Leafs might want to change their tactic ahead of the trade deadline after this massive win streak. But will the roster now be the roster in the playoffs? I also need to ask if anyone believes John Tavares will be the 3C in the playoffs. He and Nylander are currently carrying lines, like they often do during stretches of the regular season.

Meanwhile at the other end of the spectrum, the Coyotes are behind everyone but the worst in the league and won't be threatening the playoffs this season. Lightly used Alex Kerfoot, anyone?
