Well, I don't know if Quinn was able to plug the holes in time for tonight's game, but at least he tore a strip of paint off the team's country club attitude. Though I'm not sure it matters.

This might be a "score first = win" type of game, because if the Leafs fall behind, I'm not confident they'll be able to catch up.
