Game 3: Good News - Leafs Win, Bad News - Blake has Cancer...

With a dramatic overtime win on Saturday night the critics have tamed for now. Much to the please of Toskala, Ferguson and Maurice. Kaberle Scored the overtime winner on a power play (first power play goal of the season) making Toronto now "0 for 18" on the power play. They would be "1 for 18" if it wasn't for that brutal short handed goal they allowed in the second period to Markov.

Ian White scored in the first, Kaberle in O.T. and Alexei Ponikarovsky netted 2 goals which has some people in agreement that if Sundin can set up 2 goals a game for Ponikarovsky and Antropov then who cares if he scores #390?

So the leafs are now 1-1-1 but that kind of took a back seat after morning skate yesterday (Monday) when Blake announced that he has a rare form of leukemia known as "Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML)" Although it's "highly treatable" it does come as a huge shocker. I mean it sucked last year when we were missing players because of injuries but now they might start dropping with fatal illnesses...In all seriousness though, I'm sure everyone truly hopes that Jason Blake...scores his first goal soon.

The Leafs play Carolina tonight here in the T-dot. I went to the last game these two played against each other last season. It was a must win for the Cannes and Toronto destroyed them like 6-2. After that Carolina was out of the playoff race. I really hope Toskala gets the start again (I'm sure he will because he certainly played well Saturday) and Maybe we can ride the high of the o.t. win tonight for a second win of the season...Bee-otch!
