Rumours abound that the Islanders might consider taking on Cristobal Huet’s massive $5.625 million contract because they need to stay at the cap floor. This would obviously mean one of Roloson or Biron going the other way. Interesting…

61 Shots

Holy shit what a game tonight in Toronto. The first period was boring as hell, but after that it was quite the end to end game.  The Leafs set a franchise record with 61 shots!!!! And still lost in overtime. I wouldn’t say any of the goals were that bad. One was a clear breakaway, a tip, and Gustavsson had zero chance on the final goal. Horrible attempted breakout by the Leafs. White flipped the puck up the boards, but Kaberle did not play it because he thought the winger would be in position. Unfortunately, he had already begun moving up the ice.

Dwayne Roloson looked like he was back in the 2006 Playoffs when Edmonton rode him to the Finals.
