Little Mitchy Marner tied a Leafs’ franchise record with a 3rd period EN goal to tie Eddie Olcyk and Darryl Sittler with an 18-game point streak.

The Leafs won 3-1. They are 15-5-5 on the season, and somehow, some of you, including Lochlin, are angry about it.
Probably because the Oilers are losing with the Maple Leafs’ sloppy seconds.
The Leafs are second in the Atlantic division, Matt Murray and Samsonov are en fugo going 8-0-2 in their last ten, and they are on a five-game heater.
The Oilers are playing with an AHL Goalie, sitting 5th in their division, and Jack Campbell’s save percentage looks like Ted William’s batting average.
Leaf fans haven’t had much to be excited about other than tying franchise records over the past 60 years. Matthews goal scoring record celebrations lasted a month, so Leaf fans will be riding this high for the next four weeks for SURE.
As incredible as Mitch’s 18-game point streak, he needs to score in the next 38 games to tie Gretzky’s record of 51, which looks fucking CRAZY when you consider how insane Leaf fans are for 18 in a row.
The record says more about the Maple Leafs than it does about Mitch, but it’s a franchise record that counts when nothing else has for more than five decades.

It’s an incredible moment for players, and scoring in 18 straight in the NHL is fucking awesome on its own merits, so I’m happy for Mitchy. It also helps wipe out the memory of being the only team in sporting history to lose in game 7 of the first round 5 years in a row. Kind of.

I love this kid. He shuts up and puts up as an undersized forward.
Plus, he likes his Dog more than he likes people, which makes him OK in my books.
Lochlin needs a better hockey team to cheer for.
I’m sending him a Marner Jersey.
