Maple Leafs face a goaltending dilemma
The Toronto Maple Leafs now face a goalie dilemma with both goaltenders Jonas Gustavsson and Vesa Toskala out of action. The Leafs will turn to third stringer Joey MacDonald to hold the fort for the next week or so. The Leafs announced earlier today that Gustavsson will undergo his second heart procedure this season. The Leafs rookie will undergo a heart ablation tomorrow which is a procedure to correct abnormal heart rythms by destroying damaged tissue. Vesa Toskala continues to nurse a groin injury and even though he is practising with the team he wont be able to go until at the earliest sometime next week. Their were some rumours that the Leafs might try to obtain New York Rangers backup Stephen Valiquette who was placed on waivers yesterday but the Leafs have decided against this move and will go with what the currently have in the organization.
