      Maple Leafs' Martin Marincin: Coach impressed with his improving game

      Marincin was praised after Saturday's game by coach Mike Babcock, who said the defender "had his best game (Saturday)," reports the Toronto Sun. Marincin played 16 minutes and had two hits and two blocked shots. He doesn't have any points so far this season (13 games), but is playing a dependable brand of hockey in Babcock's system (when he dresses). Marincin should be in the lineup Monday when his Leafs take on his former team, the Oilers, and we expect he'll be eager to show his old team they made a mistake trading him.
