Martin Gerber, plucked off the waiver wire is in net tonight, ready to be fed to the wolves. He seems genuinely excited to be here, and I can't say I blame him - I drive through Binghamton to get to Toronto.
"I didn't expect it," said Gerber. "This is a big opportunity for me. I'm really glad to be here. I'm happy someone decided to give me a shot." - The Star
The Leafs have bought the contract of forward Jeff Hamilton from the AHL Chicago Wolves, he'll be in the lineup tonight in Washington.
Even the Leafs' most optimistic supporters agree now that this season is done, so I think really we're all rooting for Alex Ovechkin to score four goals on Gerber tonight.

We've had enough OT games. We've got a bonafide career sieve in net, our scoring is missing, our power play is missing a key cog, Hagman's still out, it's time to improve our draft pick.
Go Leafs go, in theory. Let's cheer for some Schenn hits and some Grabovski fancy maneuvering. Let's cheer for the promise of a better team at the end of the tunnel.
