The Buds claimed victory over a fellow basement-dweller last night, continuing some of the good things exhibited during their last game: Solid power-play, cutting down of the defensive lapses, and another great performance from Nazem Kadri. Versteeg continued to live up to his 'Verbeauty' moniker, with another goal on the PP. Speaking of nicknames, Jonas 'The Monster' Gustavsson was just that last night, turning away 29 of 30 shots while filling in nicely for an injured J.S. Giguere.
Coach Ron Wilson must be an avid reader of this website, because Lebda was a healthy scratch for the game and Gunnarsson was in his place posting an even +/- with zero points. What a coincidence the Leafs just happen to win after that change. You're welcome Ronnie!
*end-note: Kessel scored last night too, but it's not worth mentioning him in great extent unless he plays poorly or has a stellar performance. Anything less than a decent performance is insulting considering what we gave up for him. Yeah, I said it.
