Maple Leafs 3, Panthers 2


Nik Antropov, All-Star?!?!?  If he keeps playing like this, it's entirely possible he's playing in Atlanta.  I despised this guy's crap effort for years and so far this young season he's totally impressive.  Prior to scoring the winning goal last night, he made a strong move to the net and almost potted the winner.  The man is playing like an all-star and I can't believe I just wrote that sentence.

This was a big win as we came back from a 2-0 deficit and got great goaltending from Vesa Toskala.  I was about to say that we've scratched and clawed our way back to .500, but with these damn overtime losses getting you a point, there really is no .500 anymore.  3-3-2 is not .500, in fact, it's five losses to three wins.  I hate the point you get for losing in overtime.
