Dion is focused on tonight's game.
So there seems to be something that's changed about the Leafs since the trade deadline. No, not the amazing play of our top line (although I do find it to be soothing to my soul that Phil Kessel hit the 30 goal mark, the first time since Sundin left that anyone else has done it). It's the constant going to OT. In yesterday's FTB, Another Good Kingston boy remarked how his wife went into labour, but told him he could wait until after the game to take her to the hospital. She managed to hold out until the start of OT. What a woman. I'm sure a few others of us have had some things rescheduled because of the Leafs' insistence on getting at least 1 point out of nearly every game lately. It's entertaining as heck, especially since we know the season's basically done for. I say keep 'em coming, except against the teams we need to catch above us in the standings - starting tonight with Atlanta. Atlanta lost a tough game yesterday, so they're playing back to backs, and having faced them recently hopefully the spell of the former Maple Leafs Kubina and Antropov has worn off. GO LEAFS GO!!
