Toronto finally has a win, an introduction to a new metric, not everyone is surprised by the Maple Leafs first victory, "The Monster" finally lives up to his name, and Kaberle has a big game.
Steven Ovadia of Puck Update is happy the Toronto Maple Leafs won their first game of the season, but still see's a rough season ahead for them.
Puck Prospectus' Corey Pronman, who also writes for The Hock Project, explains the new metric Equivalent Points (Eq P). If you're familiar with Goals Created, a metric of Alan Ryder's from Hockey Analytics, you will have some prior background knowledge on the subject.
Gabriel Desjardins of Behind The Net Hockey is not surprised that Toronto finally won a game. Even though Toronto outshot their opponents by 11 shots, most teams that get outshot have a higher shooting percentage, so while shot totals aren't necessarily close, the final score usually is.
Steve from Hockey Analysis reviews last night's victory for Toronto over Anaheim and thinks that Jonas Gustavsson made all of the difference last night.
Tony Omran of Everything Leafs believes Kaberle and Gustavsson had a "Monster" of a game. It appears that "The Monster" might finally live up to his name after all.
