A LITTLE RELAXING

After the big shutout win against the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday night, the Leafs were given a day off yesterday.

With four games in six nights this week (in four different cities), coach Ron Wilson is doing what he can to keep his players energized. It didn't hurt that they put in such a solid effort against the Habs on Tuesday for their first win this season against a Northeast Division opponent.

"It's nice," Leafs forward Lee Stempniak said yesterday of the respite. "It gives us some time to sit back and relax and just not go to the rink. It's like a bit of refresher and gives us a clean mindset going into (tonight)."

WORLDS AWAIT

The Maple Leafs top pick in the 2009 draft, Nazem Kadri, was one of 36 players invited to the selection camp for Canada's entry in the world junior championship, which begins next month in Saskatchewan. Prior to last night, Kadri led the OHL's London Knights in scoring with 15 goals and 13 assists in 24 games.

TIP OF THE CUP

With the resounding (and not to mention lengthy) ovation given the Grey Cup champion Montreal Alouettes on Tuesday night at the Bell Centre, Wilson was considering taking things into his own hands.

"It went on and on and I was thinking of sending Colton Orr over there to break it up," Wilson joked after the game. "But it was good (ceremony) to get everyone going."
