[Open Thread] Toronto Maple Leafs at Phoenix Coyotes

Here's tonight's 5 Questions in anticipation of the Coyotes game. With a loss tonight the Leafs will get passed by the Coyotes and drop further down the standings. While they are only 6 points out of fourth place they are also only a handful of points away from last in the conference.

The best part about a loss tonight will be knowing that despite the team heading towards a lottery pick that at least John Ferguson Junior will not get to mess it up. Not because he'll have been fired but because he traded the pick to San Jose. And because he will have been fired.

Luckily, Liverpool won today 3-0 over Newcastle and Manchester United lost to Bolton. Also, tomorrow the Patriots are going to tear the Eagles apart so even with a loss today my sports weekend will end up good overall.

Once again No One Worthy took the nod for Leafs' Player of the Game as no one was inclined to make a case for anyone else. Remember to put your guesses for who will score take the first shot, get the first penalty, and score the first goal in the comments. I'll keep a running tally of the results in the right sidebar. For the Stars game the winning predictions were: Shot - McCabe, Penalty - Blake, and Goal - Ponikarovsky. This is also getting tracked in the sidebar. We've doubled the number of participants but no one has been able to rack up many points so join in now before everyone's guessing abilities improve.

As always, the comment section is a wonderful place to vent and rage between periods or make hopeful predictions that you can tout in the future if they happen to come to pass. Each period and overtime/shootout gets their own section so just reply to the relevant section's main post and as much as it hurts try to refrain from swearing despite Herpes' best efforts to make you turn the air blue. All you need to get started is to set up an account to comment so register and share your thoughts.
