Toskala, YouTube star, put us all in a pretty bad mood last night. Â We'll see what Gustavsson and co. can do against the Bruins!
The Leafs make the dreaded trip down south tonight to face the Buffalo Sabres at the HSBC Arena. Â Fresh off an ugly game against the Coyotes, Toronto will be looking to crack the seemingly impenetrable wall that is Ryan Miller. Â It is perhaps a mixed blessing that the Sabres were just shutout by the Senators and Brian Elliott. Â On one hand, that is the third time they have been blanked in the last few weeks and some of Buffalo's forwards are finding it difficult to contribute consistently. Â On the other hand, we all know how well the Sabres play against the Leafs (currently: 7-game winning streak) and you have to be wary of an offensive explosion. Â Vesa Toskala will start tonight in net, with Jonas Gustavsson likely getting the nod tomorrow.
Ilya Bryzgalov and the Phoenix Coyotes roll into the ACC tonight looking to break Toronto's winning streak.Â Expect this to be a tight-checking, low-scoring affair.Â Then again, we all know how the Leafs rarely do what is expected.
*EDIT: Tough loss, but updated standings for GFWE are now included in this post!*
