The Leafs have lost two in a row to the Southeast division's henchmen and now head to Tampa to face their leader. Gulp. Good news though, per Jonas Siegel it seems that while "surprised" by the punch from Tim Gleason fan favorite Nikolai Kulemin should be ready to play tonight.
Rookie James Reimer (0.933 SV%, 2.33GAA) will be between the pipes tonight. He's all but taken over for Jonas Gustavsson at this point in the season. This is a great opportunity for the young netminder to continue to impress at the NHL level.
At the other end of the ice we'll most likely see noted Leaf killer Dwayne Roloson. He'll be excited to know that the Tampa Bay Lightning have a new official hot dog: Kayem's Franks. Pension Plan Puppets isn't affiliated with Kayem Hot Dogs but if we were being paid a lot of money by them to promote their excellent product we'd say things like: "With a Sausage This Big We Can't Get Our Phones to Stop Ringing". Get at us Kayem.
