The Leafs won last night, and will have big free-agent signing David Clarkson in the lineup for the first time this season on Friday night. Things are looking up. The big test will be against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday. On a quiet mid-week off day, here are some links to tide you over:
Cam makes an interesting point that the Ducks’ insistence on playing a dump-and-chase game ended up costing them. Usually it’s the other way around with the Leafs. From Cam Charron of The Leafs Nation.
James Mirtle is back with a full bill of health for another edition of the Leaf Report with Jonas Siegel. From TSN.
The penalty kill was much better last night, not allowing any goals including on an extended 5-on-3. Hopefully they can keep that up. More from Charron at TLN.
Tough loss for the Oilers. From Chris Peters of CBS Eye On Hockey.
