GAME DAY THREAD: Bling-Hampton Edition!
ST. LOUIS @ TORONTO 7:30PM
Vesa Toskala gets the start tonight and all reports indicate he arrived at morning practice on time and sober. This doesn't bode well for the Leafs chances at golfing early and drafting high as Vesa is 4-1 in his last five with a 2.40 GAA. This is what we get for extending the contract of a sane, classy and talented goaltender this past off season. RIP JFJ.
OTTAWA @ NEW YORK ISLANDERS, 7:00pm
An 8th place team is just what the Sens need right now. If you're not a Sens fan that is. Ottawa have had no luck in recent weeks playing against peripheral squads, making this one far more dramatic than it should be. Add to that Ray Emery possibly taking his big fat contract extension to Binghampton and you have one hell of a cheesy drama unfolding. I can't look away!
Predictions start here:
Special shout out to Kabby who made us all proud at the all-star game and basically anytime he laces up skates. A classy guy and no one more deserving of a nice long playoff run. All the same, I sure hope we don't trade him.
Enjoy the games.
