The Leafs win a game! The Leafs win a game!
With Eddie Belfour taking a breather, Mikael Tellqvist shone bright in his first game of the season. I sense a changing of the guards here. Belfour has looked awfully regular those first three games and Telly was standing on his head during the second period last night. I'm hoping Eddie still has a season in him, but if he doesn't it's nice to see there's potential in the backup. Good on Eric Lindros for scoring a goal against Bob Clarke's Flyers and good on Jeff O'Neill for scoring his first in the blue and white. It all came together nicely last night, didn't it? We actually held a lead.
What really irks me is the fact I won't be watching Friday night's game against Atlanta. It's on LeafsTV and I'm not a subscriber. The first four games have been so thoroughly entertaining I hate the idea of missing a single minute of action. It'll be me, my radio and Sportscentre highlights on Friday night. Just win, baby.
