Leafs vs Sabres
Leafs at home against Buffalo tonight. The Buds are hoping to extend their win streak to three games which would be a season high. I am also looking forward to the return of Mike Komisarek to the blue line but wonder at the same time which defenceman will sit this one out? Certainly Ron Wilson has no intention of sitting Carl Gunnarson so it will come down to Luke Schenn or Garnet Exelby, both of whom have had a weak season.
Not to pick on Komisarek, I like the gritty defenceman but the guy hasn't registered a point yet in this entire season. Quad injury notwithstanding, he has played sixteen games and not managed to crack the score sheet yet, hopefully tonight that will all change and we will see Gustavson stand on his head as well.
A few weeks ago, Don Cherry made a comment on his highly popular show, "Coach's Corner", that he thought that Joey MacDonald would make an awesome starting goalie for the Buds. I think if Gustavson doesn't sort himself out soon they should give MacDonald a chance. My opinion on the whole season is that the Leafs have played really well, and the one thing stopping them from being a true force is their lack of goal-tending. Tonight should be highly entertaining! Go Leafs Go!
