Now, that's the kind of game we needed! The 2nd line finally started going last night, with Ryan Kesler, Mason Raymond, Mikael Samuelsson and even Andrew Alberts all scoring in our 5-1 win over the Hurricanes. Mayray was even trying for the hat trick in the 3rd period, and Cory Schneider had 31 saves on 32 shots. Other than the horrible coverage on that one Carolina goal, this was a great game for us. Now, we just have to see if they can repeat that effort tomorrow against the Wild and Wednesday against the Blackhawks.....

Last night's scores, and today's game. My prediction: the Toronto winning streak will end on Saturday November 13th.
