Leafs claim 4-2 win over Blackhawks
OSHAWA, Ontario -- It was a chippy affair to wrap up Saturday night at the Oshawa rookie Tournament, with the Toronto Maple Leafs edging the Chicago Blackhawks, 4-2.

The feisty Jamie Devane began the scoring in the first period for Toronto, but Chicago's Brandon Saad came to life midway through the game, assisting on a goal from Christopher DiDomenico in the second, and putting one for himself past Garret Sparks in the third period.

The Leafs, however, still had some offensive juice left in the tank. Kenny Ryan scored his first goal of the tournament, while Jake Gardiner added the go-ahead and winning goals. Sondre Olsen, Garrett Clarke and Mitchell Heard each scored an assist.

Chicago's Phillippe Paradis suffered an upper-body injury in the first period and did not return. He is listed as day-to-day.
Quote of the Day

He stuck his neck out there for us. I don't know what's wrong with him, but you see he was in pain. But he went back in there. He's a tough guy. You've got to give him credit for helping the boys out.
