Maple Leafs 3, Philadelphia Flyers 1
When you have to win, it's nice to have a captain you can lean on. Over the years there have been many who didn't think Mats Sundin was worthy of the C and that he never came through when needed most. Tonight, Sundin once again proved the nay sayers wrong by scoring two huge goals in a big win for the Maple Leafs. He's our best player who doesn't tend goal, and he provided the spark we needed after a horrendous Bryan McCabe giveaway led to a demoralizing Flyers goal early in the first. McCabe should send Sundin flowers.
It's now a best-of-three with only one more game remaining at the ACC where we have excelled of late. We're going to have to win in Philly if we want to face Tampa Bay for the Eastern Conference crown, we may as well win on Sunday. For those of you on auto-pilot expecting us to face off at 7pm EST on Sunday, consider yourselves warned. It's a 4pm EST start, so you'll be able to catch The Simpsons without the aid of a VCR.
Philadelphia has looked awfully flat the past two games and nothing like the team that destroyed New Jersey in five and took the first two games of our series. As I've said before, we should have won game two and could have won game one, so there's absolutely no reason why we shouldn't win this series. This is especially true if Ed Belfour continues to play as he has thus far. Eddie has been better than steady and looks as focused as ever. Lets keep this rock rolling.
Series tied 2-2
