Well that was embarrassing. Last night’s 6-0 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets was obviously the Toronto Maple Leafs’ worst loss of the season. On the bright side, it should be a huge wake-up call to the Leafs. They need to step up their game or they will fall down the standings fast. Now hopefully we can get onto some better news. Here’s the news and notes of the day.
