Morning skates are usually pretty relaxed affairs, just a way for the team to get together one last time to shake off any cobwebs before the game.

Not so Tuesday. The Leafs skate looked more like a practice. It went about 15 minutes longer than normal and there was even a bit of bumping along the boards. Phil Kessel and Nazem Kadri jawed at each other a little for missing an open net on a drill. Coach Randy Carlyle urged his troops to clog up the middle.
