sdLast night at Air Canada Centre in Toronto

BY THE NUMBERS

1Ranking in the NHL for Toronto’s power play on the road at 30 percent. Strangely, it is only 16th at home.

QUOTABLE

“The way the game is played now, you might need eight [goals a night] because you’re giving up too much the other way.”

— Toronto coach Pat Quinn

PLAY OF THE GAME

Dainius Zubrus and Alex Ovechkin played keep-away for about 30 seconds in the Toronto end in the first period. The Leafs regained possession, Ovechkin intercepted and passed to Zubrus who immediately returned it. The rookie promptly unleashed a nasty wrist shot and beat Ed Belfour from 40 feet.
