The Gazette’s Red Fisher writes that there is no secret behind why the Toronto Maple Leafs were able to leave Montreal with a 3-2 win on Saturday night, they simply wanted it more. And the Leafs’ stars, Jason Blake and Mats Sundin, came out with big games, while Matt Stajan scored the big goal with about 90 seconds left to play.
But for the Canadiens, it was also a case of the bounces not going their way.
“You work first. You skate first and things happen,” head coach Guy Carbonneau said. “They got a lucky bounce on the second goal and the other two, I’m sure Cristobal would like to have ‘em back.”
