I have to say, i am very anxious after watching the pre-season. The two maple leaf goalies that were supposed to push each other were not very good. Toskala did not even win a game in the pre-season. Now that is in the past, my question is, who will be starting in net against the Senators on Wednesday? Toskala was booed by the home crowd, so he may take that game off, however, Raycroft wasn't exactly loved by the crowd last year either.
Maybe it was just a preseason thing, however it is absolutely crucial for these two goalies to perform their best against the Sens, they will not take it easy on us.
The keys to victory are:
Get on the board early and often. Admit it, our defense is not exactly rock solid. Heatly, Spezza, Alfredsson are on the top line. Our goalie, (Raycroft or Toskala) will have to be on top of their game.
The Sundin, Blake, Antropov line will have to rack up the points. We cannot take stupid penalties or they will take FULL advantage.
Playing in our division is tough, and winning against the Senators is a big part of making the playoffs this year
