Toronto to Ottawa: You're Next Ladies

The Leafs finished off January with a 2-1 victory over the Rangers to end the month 8-4. The Rangers opened the scoring with a questionable goal by Brendan Shanahan, his re-direction had a bit of a kicking motion as he hit the puck but it was not soccer-like so it stood. Then Aaron Ward delivered a late headshot to Ponikarovsky but karma had the last laugh as Pony banked a shot in off Ward's skate on a powerplay to level the score going into the third.

It was then that Leafs Captain and future Hall of Famer Mats 'GWG' Sundin was sent in alone by Ian White as he ripped a wicked wrist shot into the top corner of the net over Lundqvist's glove hand to give the good guys a lead that they would not relinquish. That gave Mats the Leafs' club record for 20-goal seasons with 12 and his career streak of 16 puts him at third longest in NHL history.

Hal Gill did a great job of shutting down Jagr [apparently he now has 2 goals in 13 games against the Northeast] and Andrew Raycroft held the opposition to one goal again as he continues his renaissance in 2007.

The Leafs will look to get February off to a good start as they travel to Kanata to take on the senators in the 6th installment of the BoO. The last game on December 30th was a tight, hard-fought game that evil won in OT on a Chris Phillips change-up. I will be in attendance helping to boo Alfie and hoping that Chris Neil gathers up the testicular fortitude to fight someone.

No fighting on the ice but lots of drinking in the stands so look for those rowdy sens fans to start a fight around the 50th time that I mention the playoffs.
