Gearing Up In NYC
The Maple Leafs fell 4-2 to the Philadelphia Flyers despite playing better than in their previous few games.
Paul Holmgren addressed the media following tonight's 4-2 Flyers win over the Leafs, and the topic had nothing to do with the win. Instead, it was a big loss that caught the general manager's attention -- a terrifying eye injury to defenseman Chris Pronger.
Hartnell scored two goals and Jagr scored two, both on the power play, as the Flyers topped the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-2
Well, not glory so much as the end of the game. Unless the Leafs can get this game to extras. Of course, they won't need it because they are going to win in regulation. GO LEAFS GO!
