07:27 AM ET 09.20 | In Toronto, the clock ticks for Joe Colborne, something coach Randy Carlyle made abundantly clear on Thursday. "Joe Colborne's got to separate himself from some people here," Carlyle said of the 23-year-old. ... "The time is now for a player like Colborne to show that he's got the necessary assets and attitude and commitment to make an impression in the NHL." So far, that case remains muddled. While he boasts a real shot to crack an NHL roster for the first time in his career, Colborne, as of yet, has done little to "separate himself" at camp. He has yet to consistently demonstrate the capacity in which he could be of use at the next level. On Thursday night, the Calgary native totaled 15-plus minutes opposite Ottawa, mustering just one shot while falling on 11 of 16 draws.

Another garbage game, between that and that Titans Steelers game opening week; they should make the pre-season 14 weeks long
