The Monster comes through

Yes Jonas Gustavsson has his one good game for the month last night in the Maple Leafs 7-1 win over Washington. No I don't think I'm being harsh. He has had two good starts this season and we are well into the second month of the season. The Leafs badly needed this win.

Good - Seven different players scored last night including Matt Frattin scored his first NHL goal, Cody Franson has his first for the Leafs and Tim Connolly had his first since returning from his rib injury. These are all good things considering 7 players are out with injuries.

Bad - The Leafs gave up 41 shots to the Caps but fortunately Gustavsson had one of his best games since coming into the NHL with 40 saves.

Good - Joffrey Lupul was more than just good. He was great. Another goal and 3 assists puts him 3rd in the NHL scoring race behind leader Phil Kessel who had a goal and an assist.

Good - Special teams were good again with 3 powerplay goals and not giving up a goal while a man short. Let's hope this can be maintained.
