Maple Leafs 2, Sabres 1


Jeremy Williams scored another goal as we took out the Sabres in Buffalo.  We all know Williams has scored a goal in his first game after being called up, each of the past four seasons, but is that an NHL record?

It depends how you look at it.  In terms of scoring a goal in your first game of a season, Sergei Fedorov turned in a seven-season streak from his rookie year in 1990-91 to the 1996-97 season.  But Fedorov did that in his team's first game of the season, as impressive as it is.  I think Williams' streak is an even better one.

And what's up with the lack of game tonight?  I build my Saturday nights around Leaf games.  Now I have a gaping hole to fill...
