Leafs win! Leafs win!


Maple Leafs Hurricanes Hockey

Love that Monster

We’ve got a winner! The Leafs picked up a point for the sixth straight game and didn’t even have to lose in overtime tonight — instead, they came up with a 3-2 win in a battle of the league’s worst in Carolina.

The Monster made 34 saves for the Leafs, who erased a 2-0 first period deficit and won it on Jason Blake’s power play goal about midway through the third. And who assisted on the winner? You guessed it — Phil Kessel! The new era has begun!

After Brandon Sutter and Sergei Samsanov scored to give Carolina an early lead, Toronto got second period goals from John Mitchell and Nikolai Kulemin to even it and set up Blake’s winner.

So, points in six straight and a fine little 2-7-5 record leaves the Leafs second-last in the Eastern Conference with a date with Detroit at the ACC tomorrow looming. Seven straight? To quote my close friend Tim Bentum, “Let’s see what happens!”.
