LGD - Game 75: Still hanging on

The Leafs absolutely need a pair of wins this weekend. Though they've seen their chances of the playoffs take an enormous hit over the last couple weeks, if they can scrape out four points in the next 48 hours things could be interesting right down to the last day of the season. But they need both games.

Of course a lot of attention will be on the divisional make-or-break game with the Wings tomorrow, but tonight they're trying to knock off the Flyers in a game equally as important. Many of us have already written the Leafs off at this point, but drop one of these games and we can really put the fork in them. Two regulation wins would do enough to at least delay the heartbreak.

Hey Don, its your bud Alex speaking. I don't actually go by Alex any more; when I found out it was actually my middle name at the age of five, I decided that was stupid and asked to switch to Jeff full time. It was probably for the best, really. Alexler doesn't roll off the tongue as well. In any event, I'm still a good Canadian boy from Tronna who watches Hockey Night In Canada every Saturday, so thumbs up to that, am I right?

But I have a bone to pick with you.

Your NHL starting goaltender goes down with an injury. Who do you think benefits the most? In the case of the Toronto Maple Leafs organization, it turned out to be the one hanging out in Florida.

It's a weird concept. It wasn't a win for Jonathan Bernier; he was hurt. It wasn't a win for James Reimer; he, reasons debatable, had a chance to redeem himself and failed. Drew MacIntyre got a call up, but once again fell short of making his first career NHL start. Christopher Gibson got a chance to strut his stuff as an AHL starting goalie, but after he got yanked on Saturday, Garret Sparks took the reigns and never looked back.
