Aubin's Back in Net


About a year ago, our playoff hopes were dashed by back to back losses against the Habs.  Here's my recap of that first 5-1 loss and here's my recap of that second 6-2 loss.

I mention those games because Jean-Sebastien Aubin started his first game for the Leafs the very next game and he didn't lose in regulation until this season.  He pulled us to within two points of the final playoff spot.  He was awesome.

In Montreal, we're now down 5-2.  Paul Maurice pulled Andrew Raycroft and put Jean-Sebastien Aubin in net.  I realize Aubin's numbers this season aren't anything to write home about, but I feel better with Aubin between the pipes.  I just don't trust Raycroft, just like I didn't trust Telly.

If Maurice continues his trend, he'll likely start Raycroft again next game.  I say it's time to give Aubin a start.
