I really enjoy your post game reports..but could I ask that if you are at the home games and get to see them that you say comment on who you thought was maybe the best Baby Leaf, or most surprising, or perhaps which prospect is struggling in the AHL or even pick one player and comment on his play throughout the game??

Just a small paragraph ..of those juicy tidbits that we could not get from reading the BOX SCORES..

That would be great and keep up the good work..

Leafs Win Leafs Win Leafs Win

Manitoba Moose 1
St. John's Maple Leafs 3

A Great Night at Mile One, A Few Fights, A Hockey Game, A Wedding and A Win.

The St. John's Maple Leafs (2-3-0-0) defeated the Manitoba Moose 3-1 at Mile One Stadium Saturday night to earn their first win on home ice this season. The Leafs played a strong first period, a better second period and good enough in the third period to hold on for the win. During the 1st Intermission a Wedding Ceremony took place at Center Ice: Congratulations to Vickie Linegar and Robert Pittman on their special day. A good night all round.

The opening period provided some excitement in the way of three fights and a goal. To open Round 1 of the fights big Martin Grenier from the Moose fought newly acquired Leaf Mike Brown, it was more of a wrestling match but the tone was set. Round 2 of the fights was between Jimmy Roy of the Moose and the Leafs Kris Newbury, a few punches thrown and landed. With those two fights out of the way the Leafs opened the scoring with a goal off the stick of Pierre Hedin, his 1st of the season, with the assists to Kyle Wellwood and Carlo Colaiacovo at the 16:14 mark on the powerplay. The goal was picture perfect when Wellwood won the face-off clean back to Colaiacovo who slid the puck to Hedin who then wired it low past Tyler Moss. Leafs up 1-nothing. Back to the fights, Round 3 was between Ryan Ready of the Moose and the Leafs Jay Harrison it was a spirited tilt for sure. The Moose outshot the Leafs 9-8 in the first, but the Leafs led where it counted.

The Leafs came out strong in the second period and played a better period of hockey. The Leafs took a 2-nothing lead early in the second with a goal off the stick of Aaron Gavey, his 2nd of the season, with the assists to Jeff Daw and Nathan Barrett at the 1:30 mark on the powerplay. Sebastien Centomo made some great saves in the second period none bigger than a save off of Nathan Smith who came down the wing and wired one from the circle. Brad Leeb gave the Leafs a 3-nothing lead when he scored his 2nd of the season, unassisted at the 10:18 mark. The goal was a result of a turnover at the Moose blueline. Shots in the second period were 17-12 in favor of the Leafs, 25-21 in favor of the Leafs through 40 minutes.

The only goal of the third period was off the stick of Moose forward and Leaf killer Fedor Fedorov. Fedorov scored his 5th of the season, with the assists to Nathan Smith and Justin Morrison at the 1:49 mark on the PP. The Leafs first shot of the third period came around the 10-minute mark. They stopped playing and the Moose started to attack, but they got through it. The Moose pulled goaltender Tyler Moss for the extra attacker with over 1:30 left in the third period, they came close but to no avail. The Moose outshot the Leafs 14-2 in the third period, 35-27 overall in favor of the Moose in the game.

3 Stars:
1 Pierre Hedin-Goal
2 Sebastien Centomo-34 saves
3 Aaron Gavey-GWG

GCHWP: Robb Palahnuk

Notes:
The Leafs record improves to 2-3-0-0 on the season, 1-2-0-0 at Mile One.
Sebastien Centomo improves to 2-2-0 on the season, 34-save performance.
The Moose went 1-for-8 on the PP.
The Leafs went 2-for-6 on the PP.

Starting Line-up tonight:
Forwards: Aaron Gavey-Nathan Barrett-Jeff Daw
Defense: Jay Harrison-Brendan Bell

Defensive Pairings:
Jay Harrison-Brendan Bell
Carlo Colaiacovo-Pierre Hedin
Marc Moro-Chris Chartier

The Leafs PK was great and they are dangerous on the PK.
The line combo of Robb Palahnuk-Kris Newbury-Khalil Thomas played well.
Kyle Wellwood had a great game, but needs to shoot the puck more.
Colaiacovo, Bell and Hedin played great on the backend.
The key to the game was that the Leafs limited the chances of Fedor Fedorov and Kirill Koltsov.

Next Action: Sunday, October 19th, 2003 against the Moose at Mile One Stadium. Game Time 2:30pm Eastern (4:00pm Newfoundland Time).

The Messenger,
Thanks, I really enjoy doing them. I could try and do that for the games that I attend at Mile One Stadium.

I was impressed with Colaiacovo's play Saturday night. Impressed with his skating, passing, rushing ability, defensive awareness and ability to get the puck on net. I know it is only one game, but hopefully he can play like that over the course of the season.

Kaberle 15,
Hedin has played defense in all of the games that I have seen at Mile One. To be honest he is a lot better than I expected. He plays a simple game in his own zone, moves the puck well, is not afraid to rush with it and creates offense from the backend. I am surprised with the fact that Hedin has not backed down from the rough play or body contact. If he plays like that all year he will be an important part of the Leafs line-up.
