[Open Thread] Game 9 - Toronto Maple Leafs v. Chicago Blackhawks

New, comments

The Leafs are looking to get on a run of consistent play. They have yet to put a complete 60 minutes together this season but there have been flashes of the team that the Leafs could become. They face an Original Six rival in a game that come far too infequently for the liking of any hockey fan. Of course, the last time they played the Hawks disaster struck. The Hawks are coming off a 5-3 win last night over the Avalanche so there is a possibility that the Leafs' favourite former senators goalie, Patrick Lalime, could start tonight's game. Otherwise the Leafs could be facing the Bulin Wall who has posted a 2.32 GAA and .924 save percentage thus far.

As per your votes, Nik Antropov once again edged out the Leafs' tender as the player of the game with his 4th straight 1 goal and 1 assist performance. I'll keep a running tally of the results in the right sidebar. Also, in the pre-game comments, I want to get a prediction game going so put in your guesses for who will score take the first shot, get the first penalty, and score the first goal. I'll keep a running tally of the results in the right sidebar. Last game's winners were: Shot - Stajan, Penalty - Wozniewski, and Goal - Blake.
