Since we can't complain about Fleury...I'm guessing a "trade Orpik" thread comes out of this game because his stick broke and Kunitz couldn't stay with a man...



I only had one real problem with the officiating. It was the leafs charging call. That was pretty horrendous in my opinion.

I think Mr&Mrs Duper have about 5 kids now, seems like they've had one about once per year. His goal scoring has been climbing during this time. He needs to get back to the Burgh and get to work

Fun one again.

I'm having much more fun watching the Leafs blow their playoff spot than I would have been having if they just sucked from the start. Nothing like watching thousands of entitled fans be let down

I believe Kunitz is now second in the points race behind Crosby... awesome.

Why wouldn't you use the hot hand against the better team of the next two that being the Bruins?

For the record, Fleury was better than the level I expect from him every night. I do not expect him to be this good every night, but I also know it has been a while since he was this solid.

He seemed calm and focused. The D looked the same in front of him. I think overall the team played pretty well defensively. It still bears the question of which matters more - but this is what I know Fleury is capable of. He has now had 5 solid periods in a row.

Sid is just sick. Duper will either fan, or he will rip a wrister like a laser. He was great tonight and his interview with "Dan" was just great. "I'd talk systems with you DAN, but you don't know much...." Classic.

Another great win. I love the idea that Toronto sports talk is on fire right now.

If Sid and Kunitz pull away from the group you know Sid will do everything in his power to make sure Kunitz wins the title

Yeah, that also my only real beef...I didn't really get it. Otherwise, it was a well officiated game...how can you enjoy a game if the only thing you focus on is the refs doing something "wrong"? Especially in a game where we were the beneficiaries of the only stuff that was questionable...

Oh, wait, maybe, maybe, Tyler Kennedy got held in the low NZ with about 6 or 7 minutes to go...but when you get two questionable calls early in the game, you don't get that one...and I have no problem with that...

How would that work? If Sid sets him up then he gets a point too.
