Leafs Dealt a Bad Hand

As if a 4-0 loss due to Montreal Canadiens wasn't bad enough, the greater loss is Leafs D Bryan McCabe. In a seemingly innocent enough looking play against the boards with Habs' LW Andrei Kostitsyn, McCabe broke 3 bones. He is expected to be on IR for 6-8 weeks.

The news could not come at a worse time for the hereto high flying Leafs. They finally managed to get a string of victories under coach Paul Maurice's quasi-trap, D first plan. McCabe is a work horse if only for the 30 minutes a game he has been logging of late; love him or hate him, the Leafs will miss McCabe, funny faces and all.

Yeah, but on the other hand, the Marlies kicked the Bears in the tushie last night.


(And I didn't even get to go yell stuff at Tlusty. Sad panda)
