Game Report: Leafs vs Canes (Nov 24)

The CNNC’s sport correspondent sent in this report of the November 24 game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Carolina Hurricanes.

If you want to win consistently in the NHL you have to play three periods of hockey. The Leafs didn’t show up in the first period, looked like they didn’t want to win and were out-shot 14-4. Canes could have had 2-3 goals if it weren’t for the strong goal-tending of Leafs Anderson.

The second period was all Leafs, who scored 3 goals and chased Ward from the net. Darling replaced him for the third period, which was another reversal in the game. With the score 5-2 and 6 minutes left in the period, the Canes came back with 2 goals which made for an exciting finish; however, the Leafs held on for the win.

“Some nights are ugly. That’s what it is”. Toronto coach Mike Babcock said. “They were quicker and jumped better than us. Obviously, we scored some good goals, some timely goals, but Anderson was the main event.” Shots on goal were 47-25 in favour of the Hurricanes.
