Maple Leafs 3, Canadiens 2
Suddenly our beloved Maple Leafs are on a three game winning streak. Eric Lindros provided the offense with a couple of goals and Ed Belfour made the lead hold up as we downed our arch rivals in Montreal.
Here are some of my dotted observations six games into the new season. The gamble additions of Lindros, Jason Allison and Jeff O'Neill seems to be paying off nicely thus far. O'Neill and Allison have really been clicking lately and Lindros has been fantastic as well. It's early yet, but I'm loving these three... Aki Berg is a huge liability and frequently coughs up the puck leading to great scoring chances by the opposition. The lone goal on Friday night was Berg's fault and he almost caused a couple more last night... I feel very confident when the Tomas Kaberle-Bryan McCabe tandem is on the blue line. Not only are they playing good defense but they're racking up the points as well... Mariusz Czerkawski does absolutely nothing for me. He plays a style I can't stand and I wouldn't have signed him for $100,000. Why not just bring Jonus Hoglund back instead?... We're in the toughest division and just the other day we were tied for last in it. Now, we're tied for second.
The Leafs look to make it four on Thursday night. Enjoy the break.
