St. John's Maple Leafs 2, Chicago Wolves 1

Go Leafs Go!Here come the Maple Leafs! Jean-Francois Racine turned aside 42 shots through regulation and overtime and four of five in the shootout as the St. John's Maple Leafs beat the Chicago Wolves 2-1 in American Hockey League play Saturday night to win their fifth in a row.

Earlier in the day, the Maple Leafs announced they had signed free agent netminder Jean-Sebastien Aubin, who appeared in 22 games last season with the Pittsburgh Penguins. Along with Mikael Tellqvist, that gives St. John's two goalies who played in the NHL last season and would seem to leave Racine the odd man out of the crease once Tellqvist returns from a concussion suffered nine days ago. It won't be easy letting Racine go considering his play of late. He's won four in a row and was the first star in both victories over the Wolves.
