Toronto Sports Media Game of the Night

College of Sports Media Game of the Night:

It may have taken 15 games, but the Toronto Maple Leafs finally…won at home. They look to make it two in a row as they face the Minnesota Wild tonight. In fact the Leafs picked up their first W at home since April 11 when they dummy-ed the Detroit Red Wings 5-1 on Saturday night. Toronto got fantastic performance from goaltender Jonas Gustavsson. The Monster turned aside 35 shots en route to his third win of the season. Expect Gustavsson to be between the pipes tonight. Saturday night was full of firsts for the Leafs. Of course there was the first home win, forwards Phil Kessel and Wayne Primeau notched their first goals in the blue and while and d-man Jeff Finger scored his first goal of the year. Toronto has collected points in seven straight games and hopes to take advantage of a Minnesota team that struggles on the road. In nine games away from home, the Wild are 1-8.
