Leafs are 3-1-1 at home so far, and have outscored opponents 13-8 at the ACC. We should win this one for several reasons
1. Home game
2. Rangers will be playing their 2nd game in as many nights
3. Kessel will be motivated after being shutout in beantown and hearing the crown chant "thank you kessel"
4. Giggy's in net
5. Rangers missing two of their best forwards
Well hopefully Versteeg is ready to go. If not at least Hanson is up so they can put together the best lineup that they can. Keep Mitchell watching games with Caputi on the second and Hanson on the third. Of course better to just get Versteeg back in, but will have to see how he's feeling. At least being on the ice looks promising.
We really need a dominating performance to get the old confidence back!!! I'll be out in the movies with the lady I'll try to avoid all score mentions and watch it when i get home.
GO LEAFS GO!!!
Might I recommend the old radio with hidden ear bud trick?
I went to my Grandma's birthday dinner the last time they played the Rangers and I fired up the Slingbox at home to stream the game to my iPhone. Low and behold, we were sitting close to the bar at Baton Rouge so I was surrounded by 10 HD tvs tuned in anyways!
Hanson played pretty well for the marlies last night, scored the only goal for them in a 2-1 loss. Could be a reward type of thing. If Versteeg is ready to go I see Hanson probably going in for Zigo, would rather him go in for Brent but I think Wilson really loves Brent. So I think the safer bet would be Hanson in for Zigo.
