Good morning Toronto Maple Leafs fans!

We had from the Leafs last night. These final few games are rarely exciting, especially against bottom feeders giving AHL guys experience. But they won, so that's good. Auston Matthews also got sixth place all time in Maple Leafs goal scoring with 297.

Also tomorrow we got a couple new names on the Toronto Marlies.

Toronto Marlies sign Grant Cruikshank
Grant Cruikshank was a teammate this season of Leafs drafted prospect Veeti Miettinen. Cruikshank was second on his team in points, two ahead of Miettinen, but he is a goal-scoring centre (in the NCAA) to Miettinen’s assist game.

They also brought up Newfoundland Growlers regular Todd Skirving on a PTO.

If you weren't around yesterday, make sure to read Brigstews excellent piece on Matthew Knies.
