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

This is a big year for us in a lot of ways. You can see Garth and management really trying to find that solution to get us into the playoffs and consistently have that. The pressure is great. You have to enjoy it. It just means there's a great opportunity ahead of you.

— Islanders captain John Tavares
