Penguins Game Day 76 - vs Toronto Maple Leafs

Toronto Maple Leafs

5:00 PM, Mellon Arena, Pittsburgh, PA

The Penguins came off an impressive 4-1 win over the Flyers, the Penguins will return to action against the Toronto Maple Leafs. This will be the final time that the Leafs will visit Mellon Arena.

While reading the game recap last night I found this the most entertaining. From Empty Netters Seth gives us the greatest first line in his final thoughts: "When things seem bleakest, a good old fashioned visit from the Flyers and their shoddy goaltending always seems to cure the Penguins." That is about as close to the truth as you can get. Awesome.

Like we said this will be the final time the Penguins play the Leafs at the Igloo and it will also be the final time they play in the 2009-10 season as the the Leafs will not make the playoffs this year and the Penguins have already cliched a spot. Sadly the Penguins are in and the Leafs can't play them in the "10th game" that you have during your high school football season that everyone things is a complete and utter joke but your coach wants to do it because it thinks it will help.

Here is how the season series has gone so far for the Penguins and Leafs:

Sarge scored twice to break a 1-1 tie in the Penguins 3-1 win over the Leafs:

The Leafs came back and took the second game of the series on December 27 when they bested the Penguins 4-3:
