Cornwall ON – Montreal is winning the games they have to win after the trade deadline, but it was good to see them do it right as they shut out the trade depleted Florida Panthers 4-0 Thursday night.
Lars Eller had 2 points as did Travis Moen. The ice time was spread out as this game was all Habs. One of my faves and hope to see resigned Hal Gill even scored his first goal of the year.
Carey Price notched the shut out, but the story continues to be Toronto who keep their play off hopes alive on the play of rookie goalie James Reimer and some timely scoring.
The Leafs upset Philly 3-2 in regulation time on a game winning goal by Darryl Boyce. Former Leaf Kris Versteeg scored twice for the Flyers.Mikhail Grabovski had 7 shots on goal adding an assist to his point total, and Keith Aulie won a fight against Scotty Hartnell.
