Marner leaves Maple Leafs game against Flyers with ankle injury

Pageau could fetch a nice return. Maple Leafs will likely trade Petan at some point. The Leafs may need a backup

Pageau could fetch a nice return. Maple Leafs will likely trade Petan at some point. The Leafs may need a backup

All things considered, this was probably a fair and just result.

The team flew the birthday boy and his family from their home in Newfoundland to Toronto for the Leafs' game Saturday against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Marner, 22, is the Leafs' second-leading scorer with 18 points (4 goals, 14 assists) in 18 games this season. The Blackhawks have struggled to string wins together at all this season, and they now sit sixth in the Central with a 5-7-4 record.

The Leafs have yet to play with a full lineup this season.

Though I guess the opposite would apply had Andersen avoided another regrettable October.

NOTES: Auston Matthews had two assists for Toronto.

The family was recently celebrated during an exhibition game between Albion and Michigan State at the Breslin Center. Michigan State, now ranked No. 1 in college basketball, is scheduled to play Binghamton on Sunday night.

Chicago is coming off of a shootout loss of their own against the Penguins, and lost in Maple-Leaf like fashion: going ahead two goals early on, then the ice completely tilts in the other team's favour.

The Toronto Maple Leafs hosted a special guest at Saturday's morning skate, as 11-year-old fan Kade Foster was there for his birthday party.

Marner did try to test it out, which may rule out the most serious of potential injuries, but there is definite concern that he could miss some significant time.

Foster posted a picture of his son Kade at the birthday party last weekend, proudly repping the Toronto Maple Leafs with his Leafs shirt and a custom cake. Jason Spezza, who was a healthy scratch against the Flyers, is the only available forward on the roster.

"It was a good hockey game up and down the rink, " Babcock said.
