GAME DAY THREAD: Don't you hate it when they're right?

Sens @ Leafs: 7pm
Battle of Ontario Game Two!

Prior to the season the so-called hockey experts agreed on two things that BoO fans should expect:

1. Toronto would have a tough time scoring.
2. Ottawa's biggest flaw would be in goal.

Pretty tough to argue with point #1 when the Leafs are tied for dead last in the NHL with 23 goals scored. Pretty tough to argue with point #2 when Elliott and Leclaire both have GAA over 3.20 and a combined .898 save percentage.

Add that Ottawa haven't been scoring much either and it should come as no surprise that the Leafs are 2 points up on Ottawa in the standings with a game in hand. But lets be honest here... both teams are struggling and would it shock the hockey world if one team won instead of the other?

Rotoworld is saying that Giguere and Elliot will get the start. I'm not so sure about this... it would make more sense to play Gustavsson against Ottawa and save Giguere, (who has the 10th best GAA in the league) for Washington tomorrow night. I'll keep an eye on this.

I spoke with my father this morning (who is a Sens fan as some of you know) and he thinks the Leafs are gonna win this one. His faith is at an all-time low.

Can't say I blame him. Been there before.
