Puck Drop: 7PM Leafs-TV
If you haven't seen Steven Stamkos you really should try to. He's got points in 17 straight games (16G 15A 31Pts) and comes home to Ontario tonight with 41 goals: three behind Crosby and Ovechkin for the league lead.
The line of Stamkos Martin St. Louis and Steve Downie might be the best single line in the NHL right now. They're scoring at a torrid pace as the Lightning. five points out of a playoff berth, look to make the postseason.
Jean-Sebastien Giguere starts against Antero Niittymaki. Tampa's goals against have been an issue for them lately: they've given up 35 goals in their past seven games. On the flip side the Toronto Maple Leafs have only scored 11 goals in their past seven games so something has to give.
Let's hope the Leafs show up to play unlike the last game against Tampa on the 23rd of January. Since that time we've added Phaneuf and our penalty kill has undergone a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde transformation. PPP isn't sure off the top of his head but the PK is over 90% since adding Phaneuf.
With any luck Stamkos won't score four to take the goal scoring lead in front of his friends and family at the ACC.
