Here's a tidbit from an Oilers fan......Leafs have to be the worst good team in the NHL...lol.....fuck off!

Still winning but i hate to see the goal y has to win the game.

I really hope we use the past few games as a catalyst to go on a roll and establish our identity as a nasty, fast, skilled team that will punish on the counter attack. We have the players, just need to push it to excel and beat all those who challenge us. RC seems to have the guys focused and working hard. Still some work on D but this team is starting to play better and having two great goalies, a very mobile defence and plenty of scoring up front, plus added grit with Bolland and Clarkson rounds out a pretty good looking squad. i want another dominant performance in Calgary and a shit kicking of the stinky twins on Saturday.

10% of Reimer's games in his career have been shutouts

I hope Bernier posts a shut out tomorrow....So we can have something to fight about until Saturday. Love this goalie situation

Reimer proves he really does carry the all spark(heart Of the Maple Leafs) with him. Love him or hate him, Optimus Reimus does it again.

Hard to believe Bernier matches Reimer's performance tomorrow night. Reimer should be starting Saturday.

Wow, what a fuckin game. I think the first 3 period 100% commitment, no head-up-the-ass play that I've seen this year. Fantastic!

Rielly knew it right away. He points right at Kadri when it goes in.

1 Star............Phil

@Gozo It was a team win.  I thought the boys all deserve a round of applause.   Here's to the Leafs we've been waiting for.    GO LEAFS GO!

@wiski Did Simmons really say that?    Just goes to show you what it takes to be a sports writer.

@wiski Good expose on the uselessness of these "veteran" Toronto sports columnists by Jeffler.

@wiski hindsight is 20/20. I'd hate to see some of the things I've said on here and other message boards in 2011. Everybody can look foolish.

@loomx I thought he was pointing at Kessel for setting up the play with the pass, but ya guess it was Kadri

@docyqx agree, but Reimer will get 1st by default for the shutout

@loomx @wiski the majority of articles and comments on this site are much more informed than MSM members which is why I love this site.

@wiski Oh that was Simmonds, not Jeffler. nvm fuck that guy.

@Coldincowtown @Gozo So long my friend as long we are winning we are OK. That was only my opinion. Go LEAFS GO.

@Gozo @Coldincowtown huh? I'm not going to argue with dumb logic. We are 9-4. We have beat Pens and Ducks in past week. We played with Oilers. they are a joke. RC played his third and fourth line in 3rd period and changed defence pair every shift. Pay attention. I don't even know why I am arguing about something so obvious.

@Coldincowtown @Gozo You just said a bunch of kids if they were playing another good team the score will be different.

@Gozo @Coldincowtown I saw plenty of shots when the score was 4 zip, I saw a one sided strong team versus a scattered bunch of kids before that.
