Maple Leafs 5, Penguins 2
He may not be John Tavares, but unlike John Taveres, Jiri Tlusty is a Toronto Maple Leaf in the here and now and last night the teenager scored a pair in his NHL debut. I won't blow your mind with how his stats will look when he finishes his twenty year career at this scoring pace.
It was a tight 1-1 game in the third when Tlusty did his thing to put us up for good. His goals were only 35 seconds apart, and we added another pair later in the period 32 seconds apart. Vesa Toskala was sharp, making 23 saves, and Mats Sundin got an assist to tie him for the league lead in points.
We're still a mediocre team, but these victories are a hell of a lot more fun to watch then those bloody losses.
