Leafs fan, 11, meets with team after viral lonely birthday tweet

The club announced on Sunday that Marner underwent an MRI exam on his injured ankle and will be out of the lineup for a minimum of four weeks.

Marner is second on the Maple Leafs with 18 points (four goals, 14 assists) in 18 games.

Kasperi Kapanen made the jump up briefly last night off of the Kerfoot line alongside Tavares and Moore.

This is a great opportunity for Kapanen to showcase his physicality and speed that is typically missing on that line with Marner in it.

Sunday marks the first time the Leafs play a game without Marner since February 2017.

Still, if it's a long-term absence for Marner, it'll be felt. William Nylander was the only successful Toronto shooter.

Mercury transit visible from Greece on Monday
Because of the slight difference in the orbits of Mercury and the Earth, Mercury transits only happen about 13 times per century. We'll set up in the plaza by the theater to be ready for viewers by 8 AM, and we'll stay until the transit is over at 10 AM.


Would they have banked three points?

NOTES: Auston Matthews had two assists for Toronto.

It would have been impressive, of course, had he successfully loaded the puck onto his blade and artfully tucked it inside the post as Svechnikov did a few games back, but the end result from a failed effort was almost just as special. "You never like to see guys go down awkward like that".

Kade Foster has received an overwhelming outpouring of support after his father tweeted out a photo of his son and asked his friends to show him some love, tagging Maple Leafs stars Mitch Marner and John Tavares after none of his friends showed up his birthday party.

Michael Hutchinson will get the start tonight against Chicago, who has a career.961 save percentage with a 4-1-1 record against the Blackhawks, with his first ever shutout coming at the United Center.
