Daniel's brother is currently in the Greater Toronto Area, and he emailed me to let me know that he was in a local pizza place where they had a clock counting down to the next Maple Leafs game. Your move, Oggi's.
Giguere went 2 for 3 in front of the firing range for 6:39 last night. The Ducks will be looking for that kind of performance, or really, any of the success that Henrik Lundqvist (shutout) and Marian Gaborik (4 goals) had against the Leafs last night. You have to expect some of the Brian Burke branded pugnacity to carry over into tonight's game, but hopefully the Leafs will lose in legs what they make up for in anger over an embarrassing loss.
For those not following Toronto, last night's effort could be an anomaly for a team that looked good opening the new year 5-1 with 4 road wins. They're 0-2-1 in their last three, but their struggles aren't as readily apparent as the that of the Senators, whom the Ducks squeaked by on Tuesday.
Selanne says there are no secrets between him and Giguere, and "it's going to be interesting." Word.
