I was out on Saturday night (see here) so I only caught the re-broadcast on Leafs TV the next day. Looked to be a pretty good game considering that the Leafs played the night before and didn't get into Mtl till 2 am.
Belfour definitely didn't look tired and made some impressive stops - although he basically handed Montreal their first goal. Once again Lindros carries the team with two goals. Allison also chipped in with the other.
So now the Leafs have 8 out of a possible 12 points over their first 6 games and are a mere two points behind the Sens whom everyone knows will go 82-0 this year. Right?
Funny how this team has lost their best player in Sundin and they haven't missed a beat. When Sundin comes back this team will really be scary to play against.
Speaking of Sundin he has been cleared for light on-ice workouts but probably is a ways from playing yet.
Meanwhile there are some rumours floating around that there is friction between JFJ and Pat Quinn with Quinn "on a short leash" whatever that means. Personally I would not be happy if Quinn was ousted I don't know who in the league would be a better replacement for him. He is easily one of the top 5 coaches in the NHL.
Let's hope this one is one of those bogus rumours that Toronto kicks out every year. Remember last time their was hockey Quinn was supposed to have "lost the dressing room" and was about to be fired? We know how that turned out.
