Maple Leafs 4, Canadiens 3

LeafsThat was fun. All three games have been entertaining so far this season, but last night's effort against the Habs finally gave us the result we were waiting for. Vesa Toskala made game-saving stops down the stretch, carrying us into overtime where Tomas Kaberle hit paydirt.

In Look at the Hate We're Breeding I begged Paul Maurice to start Toskala last night in the hopes he'd have a strong game and lead us to victory. That would earn him another start on Tuesday and clarify the goaltending situation. It's all about what's best for the blue and white and what gives us our best chance at victory. His name is Vesa, for better or for worse.

A tip of the cap to Alexei Ponikarovsky who potted a couple and the entire Leafs team for coming back in the NHL's first ever must-win game three of an 82 game season. Some of us don't want to Wait 'Til Next Year if we don't have to.
