ONCE, TWICE, THREE TIMES A WINNER!
The Blue and White found themselves behind in a game for the first time this season. Have no fear, because Superman came to the rescue. Yes Leafs Nation, Superman exists. He's not from Krypton, he's not a mild mannered reporter, and he can't fly. He's from Alberta, he's a hockey player, and he can score. His name is Clarke MacArthur, and his two goals last night, give him four on the season, and propelled the Leafs to victory. Francois Beauchemin also scored. For a team that many "experts" claimed would have trouble getting secondary scoring, it's interesting to note that all of the scoring last night came from the second and fourth line. The other catalyst for the third consecutive win was goaltending. It would be fitting, at least for one game to change Jonas Gustavsson's nickname from "the monster" to "Batman", because he certainly snuffed out he Penguins criminal plans to halt our winning ways. Especially the cross crease pad save in the second, as well as the entirety of the third period. The Toronto Maple Leafs will now face off against the NHL equivalent of a hemorrhoid, Sean Avery, when they play the New York Rangers on Friday night.
