Good news for Maple Leafs goaltender Vesa Toskala: because Toronto won this game, he won't have to commit ritual suicide for allowing a 178-foot goal against the Islanders.  He will have to endure endless ribbing about his gaffe, though.  Like if I were on the Leafs (LEAVES! The plural is Leaves, goddammit!), I'd say things like, "Hey Vesa, remember when Rob Davison just cleared the puck randomly and you let it bounce into the goal?" and "Way to stop the puck, no-stop," and "You're bad at your job."  I didn't get where I am today* by coming up with unoriginal insults, that's for sure.

*My parents' garage.  It's pretty much my own apartment, though.  And they're totally cool if rent's a little late.
