And He Won That Car

20 Oct

While you guys have been listening to me rave about James Neal  at an octave usually reserved for boybands and high school quarterbacks…

Gratuitous, excellent photo by in Winnipeg.

The NHL’s other leading goal-scorer, Phil Kessel Cartman has 7 goals and 12 points in Toronto.  He’s historically a fast starter (as is the Nealmobile), only to experience huge production drops later.  Currently, he’s on pace to score 114 points.  Read about his streaky past and current roll in the Toronto Star [link].

Last night he scored in the 3rd to tie the Leafs 3-3 with Winnpieg, and the Leafs won in a shootout.  Good thing too, because I told our friend Shades to bet that way on the game.  So Cartman saved me $5 (thanks bud).  Toronto is 4-0-1 at present, in Boston tonight visiting Chuck.

What do you think – are these hot streaks going to hold up?  Is this the year we see big breakouts?  Here’s hoping Kessel keeps scoring – that’ll teach people to pick him last in the All-Star Game draft!  He’s on Twitter too – @pkessel81.

    Do I suspect a little Toronto love? Read you guys religiously though first time commenting. I’m a Leafs fan so felt I needed to comment. Kessel also has a 15 game point streak dating to back to last season, with better stats than anyone picked before him at the dreaded all-star draft -.- Hope he kills ’em in Bean-town tonight 😉

      Leafs fans always need love. Canadians hold parties celebrating how long it’s been since the Leafs won the Cup (44 years, btubs) I’m allowed to chirp – I’m Canadian. 😉

        Lol we have been planning a Parade for decades now so when the Leafs deliver, Toronto will shut down to party for weeks. No worries though, you’ll be invited! Our wagon is hugeeee!

    In the same boat as thego2girl…the Leaf lovin’ looks good on your blog and we got lots to love! More please! So Boston kicked our asses… I’m blaming the fact that it was because Gus Gus and not Jesus Reimer was in net…and because instead of armstrong there was Kadri. DO NOT LIKE. You should all come visit during the parade, thank god it happens in the summer because no one will be doing work. No one, for months. We Torontonians know how to party!
