The Toronto Maple Leafs returned to action against the St. Louis Blues last night and they made it all the way to overtime before losing out to the saddest team in the NHL (Get it? The Blues? Heh). The worst part is both goals for St. Louis were scored by defenders. The good part is they were both former Niagara IceDogs, so at least some good came from the loss.
