Luca Caputi makes his Maple Leaf debut tonight as Toronto visits Boston to battle it out with the Bruins. Seidenberg will suit up for the Bruins who are still aiming to remain in the playoffs despite injury woes and a lack of ability to land an elite scoring winger for Marc Savard. The quest to get out of the bottom five continues for the Leafs tonight.
The Leafs will be without Lee Stempniak and Alexei Ponikarovsky tonight, who have been dealt for picks and players, but the big body of Luca Caputi will be the interesting topic of discussion for tonight. How will the rookie fair in his first game with the Leafs, and perhaps more importantly, how will fans react to his addition for the 25+ scoring winger they dealt to acquire him.
The Leafs are 8-18-6 on the road tonight and will kick off their first of a three game road swing. The Bruins have not won a game in regulation in their last 10 outings at home.
I’ll be liveblogging the game on TheScore tonight, and I just wanted to take a brief moment to thank everyone for tuning in here and TheScore for yesterday’s trade deadline. It was fun sharing insight and rumors with you all and I had a blast.
If you’d like to watch the new episode of CFB News, in which we critique the lameness of yesterday’s deadline, click here. For those that think it’s retarded, do not click it and just enjoy the game instead lol.
