Rare Game Preview
I hardly ever do previews of upcoming games. Mostly because the only thing that is even remotely easy to predict is the final outcome; a Leafs humiliating loss. The theory from earlier in the season that we were "watching an entertaining brand of hockey regardless of the outcome" may be somewhat back on track for the last two games. The Leafs have scored 12 goals in the last two games against suspect goaltenders in downward spiraling teams. I was somewhat shocked when presented by the headline on Mapleleafs.com that the Leafs were going for their 3rd win in a row. After witnessing Toskala letting in unscreened, on the fly slapshots from 50 feet out against the Penguins the last thing I would be typing would be "prospective 3 game winning streak". That being said THE LEAFS COULD BE GOING ON A 3 GAME WINNING STREAK! ALthough that win could come against a team that is 6-2-2 in the last 10 games. Vokoun has a 2.62 GAA and a .919 S%, but is only sporting a 14-14-3 record. Craig Anderson has been a pleasant surprise for them with lofty stats with a 2.47 GAA and a .930 S%. Vesa doesn't have a chance.
