OTHER TEAM STATS

-Despite getting conquered by the Flames on Thursday, the Leafs have won 2 of their last 3 and 3 of their last 6. Their wins came over Edmonton, Montreal and Washington.

-In 14 road games this season the Leafs have scored 28 goals, "good" for 28th in that category. The Canucks have scored 52 goals in 15 games at home this season (7th overall).

-Toronto and Vancouver both suck when it comes to scoring goals in the 2nd period. Both teams have scored 23, good for 24th and 25th respectively.

-The Canucks have scored 41 3rd period goals, 2nd overall.

-The Leafs have allowed the 3rd most 1st period goals against,

the 6th-most goals against in the 2nd period and the 25th most goals against in the 3rd period. So...get on these guys early is key.

-Outshooting the Leafs leads to good things.

MISC

-Christian Ehrhoff talks to the media after his practice on Friday. He feels like he can play against the Leafs, while Alain Vigneault says he is a game time decision.

-Alain Vigneault talks about Jonas Andersson not bringing enough to impress himself or Mike Gillis and so it was time to bring Aaron Volpatti when the Canucks play the physical Leafs. (Canucks.com). Lots of praise for Jannik Hansen there, hey?

-The Leafs have recalled G James Reimer from the Marlies as Jean-Sebastien Giguere will miss a bit of time with a groin injury.

-It has been over 7 years since the Leafs won a game in Vancouver (November 22, 2003).

-"I'm not going to say we don't like each other, but it's a big rivalry," Ryan Kesler said today. These teams get it up when they play eachother which is why it's so damned fun watching these games.

-Healthy scratches for the Leafs: Nazem Kadri and Brett Lebda. Back in: Mike Komisarek (returns from hand injury)  (Toronto Star)

-The Avalanche can take over 1st possession of the NW Division Friday night, but have played 3 more games than the Canucks. (God damn it they won 6-5 in OT. F*ck you Ottawa!)
