Make Other Plans: Toskala to Start vs. Flyers

Puck Drop: 7PM TSN

Good news: Carl Gunnarsson is back and his return has sent Jeff Finger to the pressbox.

Bad news: Vesa Toskala is in net. Philly is 8-1-1 in their last ten. Goaltender Michael Leighton, picked up off waivers, has a .923 SV% over that span.

People were wondering why Philly was slumping with all of that talent but it looks like something woke that locker room up because they're cruising right now. The Flyers have pole vaulted over the riff raff in the Eastern Conference and sit in 7th place with a game in hand on sixth.

I joke about going out but I'll actually be watching this. Maybe we can pray for a miracle or a Phil Kessel goal (which would be a miracle about now). Sigh.

Don't forget your SPG picks, though if you know who's going to score for the Leafs you should probably be fucking knighted at this point, and go Leafs go.
