Puck Drop: 7:00PM ET - Sportsnet Ontario / Versus
Tired of having Ontario born players tear up the team they grew up cheering for right in front of your very eyes? Had enough of ex-Leafs fans playing for other teams to our detriment? Well fear no more kids because with PPP Amalgamated Heavy Industries new consumer product Lee Stempniak we're turning the tides.
That's right, we have a hockey player who grew up in a city that wasn't Toronto and he's ready to beat up on his childhood
heroes guys he watched on TV. For the low price of $3.5M in 2009-2010 you can get your very own Lee Stempniak today! Don't delay, his price might drop rapidly next summer and you we wouldn't want to miss out!
"(Monday night) is definitely a restart to the season, a fresh start, a clean slate, (a chance) to forget about what's happened and get back in the lineup and contribute."- Mike Komisarek in the Toronto Star
Mike Komisarek is off the IR which has led to Wallin, Finger and Exelby being healthy scratches. Our six d-men tonight are then Kaberle, Komisarek, Beauchemin, Gunnarsson, White and Schenn. Jonas Gustavsson gets the start against Ryan Miller who comes into tonight's game ranked 1st in the league in save percentage (.933) and first in the league in goals against average (1.93). Shit.
The Sabres are still enamored with their young defender Tyler Myers, who somehow was picked 12th in a four player draft yet seems to be a good player. On Myers and Kessel:
I asked Lindy Ruff if Tyler Myers would "square off" against Phil Kessel tonight, and he thought I meant "fight." - James Mirtle
Maybe Lindy Ruff doesn't know who Phil Kessel is. This could work to our advantage. Don't forget your SPG picks, check out Die By the Blade for SBN's Sabres coverage, and go Leafs go!
