Sundin has played 74 games. Also, Wellwood's out. Possibly Colaiacovo too.

After seeing how the Leafs played against the Sens, and since the Pens will probably win on Sunday as the Flyers are in, I'm tempted to rest the entire A-team and call up as many players as we can.

I'll admit,I secretly want to draw Philly so bad in the opening round but it means also the Habs losing to Toronto and hoping that both Pens lose and Bruins win their respective games.

Leaf lines are a crapshoot, but my guess:

Tlusty-Steen-Ponikarovsky
Blake-Stajan-Tucker
Devereaux-Moore-Bell
Williams-Pohl-Newbury

Kaberle-Kubina
McCabe-Stralman
White-Kronvall

Toskala
Raycroft

- Can't we get a better picture of Price? That was 2 masks ago!

- If you are going to the game tomorrow, you must try to start a 1967!!! clap clap clap 1967 clap clap clap 1967 chant! The Leafs suuuuuuck chants we have heard this year at the Bell Centre are decent, but 1967 is MUCH better! Something about Mark Bell going to jail would be cool too.

- Is Toskala starting confirmed? I thought we would get Raycrap...this must be a first because I can't find any Laffs news from today on TSN.ca or Sportsnet.ca.

At the beginning of the year, I hoped this game would be meaningless, with Toronto already out and Montreal already in. Nothing like last year's finale.

As it turns out, it's not meaningless, with the Habs still having a shot at the conference crown... but it's close enough for me.

Just don't get anyone hurt. This game is a victory lap.
