Yep, the Leafs won in Montreal last night in Randy Carlyle's debut as head coach. Mikhail Grabovski had a 3-point night and his line was used as the team's #1 trio at even strength. It's a case of good news/bad news. Those who still hold out hope for a Leafs playoff appearance can take solace in the fact that the Leafs remain only three points out of 8th in the East. Those who feel the playoffs are out of reach watched the Leafs lose two spots in the draft with last night's win (Boston comes to town on Tuesday so that should help).
Grabovski, on playing in Montreal, via the Globe & Mail:
"No pressure. No Kostitsyns either."
