Game 5: Leafs Win!...Sundin Passes Sittler...No He Doesn't...Yes He does!

With a total cock slap givin' to Leafs Nation on Tuesday by the Canes, Toronto was looking to rebound in the biggest way against the Islanders last night...and they did.

Having been out scored 7-1 on Tuesday the Leafs paid it forward to the Islanders in an 8-1 romp. Gamache scored his first goal as a Leaf, Wozniewski scored his first goal as a...anybody and Sundin got an assist to pass Darryl Sittler as the all time points leader as a leaf...There were standing ovations,

tears, a montage the whole nine yards...That's what made it so funny when they took his assist away a few minutes later thus tying him with Sittler again...Haa Haa


Having felt the achievement of being the Leafs all-time scorer only to have it taken away moments later Sundin was like a dyke at a craft show...He was determined to score...and at any cost too. Of his 390 goals this one is probably ranked somewhere between 7th and 12th as being the ugliest...but hey, they all count. They made him 3rd, 2nd and 1st star (I had never seen that before)...Raycroft must have enjoyed seeing that 2nd and/or 3rd star slip away from his grasp...what the fuck does this guy have to do to get a fuckin' bone in this city?!

Dubowitz looked like a back up goalie...where was this type of performance last spring when he absolutely robbed the leafs of a playoff spot?...I digress...8 different Leafs scored on him but the best goal of the evening hands down goes to...Thomas Kaberle...what a move...he absolutely made the Islanders look like ass...it was amazing.

The Leafs have a much more difficult opponent on Saturday vs the Penguins but with the offensive outburst last night there might just be a bit of much needed morale booster. Before I go I just wanted to mention how stupid the reporters sounded last night when saying "This is a must-win game for the Leafs"...what?! this is game 5 of fuckin' 82!...let's pace ourselves people...

Oh, that's a just great situation. Can you say "awkward"? Good thing for him he picked up the point later.

Yeah, it was pretty good...they even had an isolated camera on Sundin for the game...thewn they showed the replay of the "assist" we was the only one on the right side of the ice and the puck never even came within 20 tf of him...it was great...
