Quel Surprise!

The Toronto Maple Leafs blew a 3-1 lead in the third period last night.

Florida scored on their only power play of the game, with 53 seconds left on the clock, to send the contest to extras.

Former Leaf Bryan McCabe, whom Leafs fans ridiculously jeer every time he touches the puck, scored the game-winning goal in overtime on a shot Vesa "I'm a goaltending slut" Toskala should easily have stopped.

Yeah. That's about right.

Oh, and remember, I told you not to boo McCabe. I've got to admit, I'm happy for him.

I was there last night and wore my #24 Leafs jersey with pride. It was a bitter sweet moment when he won the game for Florida, but I applauded him as he was named the game's 1st star, he played a solid game! I really pissed me off that the Leaf fans would "boo" him every time he touched the puck, such short memories! I told them to shut the f**k up every time. I'm happy for Bryan McCabe!

The people who boo McCabe are idiots. Those same idiots are going to boo Mats upon his return. It's annoying that there are so many of these idiots in 'Leaf Nation'.

@ Woodpeck: Justin Pogge, welcome to hell. Fucking Leafs, man. Left the poor kid out to dry, again. Pathetic.

@ 40: Way to represent, brother. I'm glad he's doing well down there, and I'm glad he scored the winner. Leafs fans have got to be some of the most fickle around. And, trust me, I knew you'd be expecting a post, and who I am to let you down?

@ Brother: It's going to be up to you and I on the 21st to tell the people who boo Sundin to, as Kien so eloquently put it, "shut the fuck up!"

@ DeeLikesToMakeOutWithBoys: First of all, your name keeps getting better every time. It's obvious Dee does not read the blog. That punk bitch. And, yes, Hagman is one dangerous motha sucka. What a goal. What a Hagman. It's a shame he chose to come here and play on this pathetic team.

@ Kushnir: As my brother put it, the people who boo McCabe are idiots. Straight up.

Thanks Caber, one less point to Tavares.....

Bhatti, as shitty as the Leafs are, and they are really, really shitty, we're not getting Tavares. The Islanders are. I fear you are setting yourself up for some serious disappointment.

Listen man, its a lottery...Leafs jusy have to be bottom 3 to have a good chance....Tank Leafs Tank...

I knew you wouldn't let me down! You never do! Bhatti, I must agree with Navin, we're going to somehow get some points down the stretch and do a lot of damage with our chances to get him. I want him as well, but don't get your hopes up too high!
