Good morning Toronto Maple Leafs fans, and people who accidentally clicked on this in their news feed.
Last night the Maple Leafs five game win streak ended at the hands of the Tampa Bay Lightning, but in overtime so there’s a little sliver of positivity.
Leafs in overtime needs an overhaul
But, one streak stayed alive and broke records. Mitch Marner scored two goals in the loss to break the Maple Leafs record point streak by scoring a point in 19 straight games.

Congratulations Mitch, keep on scoring so people keep talking about you and it keeps making people outside Toronto mad.
The national attention towards Mitch Marners 18 game point streak is insane! This is a local story, not a league wide one. The NHL record is 51!! In fact, Marners (admittedly great) streak is currently tied for the 40th best of all time. 40!— Andrew Walker (@AWalksOfficial) December 2, 2022
The Rangers/Chicago game got a little heated last night:

Chicago would win that game 5-2. Shame on you New York.
Jordan Binnington, goalie for the St. Louis Blues and general fake tough guy, kept up his usual nonsense last night and his team is getting sick of it.
Blues coach Berube rips Binnington for his antics: 'Just play goal, stop the puck'
Binnington let in three goals to Pittsburgh, and then tried to take out his anger at his being terrible on Jason Zucker.
I think I’ve seen more clips of Binnington like this than for his actual play this season. pic.twitter.com/oHbtAciZvH— Shayna (@hayyyshayyy) December 4, 2022
No punishment there, but Jason Zucker got his revenge.
Zucker scores on Binnington, and that's going to end his night pic.twitter.com/jODVky9G20— Shayna (@hayyyshayyy) December 4, 2022
But wait! There’s more!
Actually, his night wasn't over just yet. First, Binnington got a 10-minute misconduct. Now his night is over. pic.twitter.com/6Gae8ArjWC— Shayna (@hayyyshayyy) December 4, 2022
10 minutes for inciting? That’s a new one to me. Even the refs got sick of his act. Enjoy being waived soon, Jordan.
Alright folks, that’s it for me. Enjoy your day everyone, no Leafs until Tuesday night in Dallas.
