Little Rest for Eddie

At this stage of the Maple Leafs season, what Ed wants, Ed gets.

And if Ed Belfour prefers playing both ends of the back-to-back schedule-ending finale this weekend, coach Pat Quinn will shelve any plans he had to rest his No. 1 goaltender to squeeze in one more confidence-building start for Trevor Kidd.

"Ed has been asking for both games," Quinn said yesterday at Lakeshore Lions Arena. "The last time we talked about it was over a week ago. He was one of the guys given a second day off (yesterday) and so it's not carved in stone, but that was the plan.

"That's not to say (Kidd) can't go in there and get the job done for us. But for that home-ice advantage ... "

The percentages favour the home team winning a playoff series, and with an estimated $3-million in gross profit at stake for a Game 5 or Game 7 at the ACC, to whom else would Quinn entrust both games?

The Leafs no doubt were glued to the National Hockey League's out-of-town board last night. The Ottawa Senators beat the Florida Panthers 5-4, bumping Toronto down to fifth spot heading into tomorrow's game in Buffalo against the Sabres.


So there's the answer to most people's questions of who will play which games and such.

But I thought his back had exploded and he wouldn't be able to play in the playoffs? I read it in the newspaper, and they can't be wrong.

He'll get both. The games are too important to put Trevor Sieve in.

He got a 10+-game rest with the back thing, and there will be several days before the playoffs start anyway.
