Maple Leafs 3, Red Wings 2

LeafsEven though this team has been built to lose, I root for the blue and white. It's in my blood. When Nikolai Kulemin (nickname needed!) scored in the third, I cheered loudly. I wanted the W.

It's fun watching this team, because it's not the same old McCabe / Tucker / Sundin thing. It's fresh faces and youth. Last nights game was fun to watch as we surprised the best team in the NHL on the road. I don't think Wilson and the boys are aware they were built to lose.

My last Leafs recap, the final game of the 2007/2008 season, can be read at http://www.torontomike.com/2008/04/maple_leafs_1_canadiens_3.html and concluded with some questions.

Now begins the summer Maple Leaf endless chatter about who will be the new GM (Brian Burke), will Mats Sundin return (no) will the Leafs sign a great free agent (no), will the Leafs draft a future all-star (no), will Paul Maurice return (no) and will the Leafs win the cup in 2008/09 (ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!).

It turns out all my guesses were right except maybe the one about drafting a future all-star. That, my friends, may have in fact happened.

I mentioned to a couple friends how they were up on Ottawa in game 1 last year and blew it, and then as my analysis last year showed they continued to be plagued by late third period losses.

It was really cool to see them NOT blow it, there was something very refreshing about that game. I hope it continues and that our expectations haven't been prematurely raised.
