Saturday’s Toronto Maple Leafs – Vancouver Canucks game has been testy, yet much of the action seems more silly than sinister.

    I wonder if he’ll catch a suspension for a flying elbow on his own teammate…

    That’s a first for Kessel, he didn’t have to have two guys hold his opponent up while he wacks him with his stick! he’s learning a little at least.
