As another version of the Belfour / Long Island Bar / Water bottle tripping Auld story comes out the Leafs face their old goalie when he's on a hot streak.
From the rockin' Belfour.com press section I found this article:
Panthers coach Jacques Martin never doubted Ed Belfour would play like a standout goalie again.
Even after Belfour gave up four goals on nine shots in his season debut at Atlanta this month, Martin expressed confidence that Belfour would again resemble the future Hall of Famer he has been most of his career.
That has happened quickly. In his past two starts, Belfour stopped 60 of 64 shots in wins over Philadelphia (3-2) and the New York Rangers (4-2). Since the Atlanta debacle, he has allowed only 10 goals on 122 shots for a .918 save percentage.
UPDATE: 2 Goals on 25 shots for the Eagle. A nice win against his former buds.
