Maple Leafs 4, Capitals 5
We have to win these kinds of games. With all the killer games we have against teams in our own division this season, we've got to secure points against teams like the Capitals and Hurricanes. At least we have to if we want an invitation to the big dance this spring.
Mikael Tellqvist has had better nights and was probably haunted during his sleep last night by that first goal he allowed. Jeff O'Neill seems to be revitalize by Mats Sundin's return, which is good, but Bryan McCabe and Tomas Kaberle seem a little tired. Our blue line is so thin those two have to play half the game. I'm worried about what they'll be like in the dog days of February.
And finally, we say farewell to Nathan Perrott who was shipped off to Dallas yesterday for a conditional pick in the 2006 draft. I'd say he'll be missed, but that's a lie.
