Maple Leafs 4, Rangers 1

LeafsIt's possible we caught both the Pens and Rangers flat-footed these past two games, but it's also possible we're witnessing the benefit of having defensive liability Bryan McCabe out of the lineup. Our D has looked great, Vesa Toskala has asserted himself as our #1 and we've enjoyed two efficient and effective victories on the road.

The Leafs play so much better away from the ACC. Perhaps Maurice should try a "stay in a hotel at home" stunt. Or, and this is an even better idea, it's time to shelve McCabe indefinitely with a "lower body ailment" and keep this current squad in front of Toskala. I could get used to efforts like this.

You're getting hopeful on me, Mike. They pay McCabe too much to stick him on the shelf somewhere. That isn't to say I agree with what they're paying him, but they're still paying him.

I don't think we can blame it on McCabe. For the most part the offense seems to be playing a little more defensively responsible which is in turn helping out the D.
