Kukla's Korner Hockey

The Leafs, meanwhile, have been one of the biggest benefactors of the crackdown on obstruction and stick fouls so far. Of the 58 non-shootout goals the Leafs have scored so far this season, 26 have come on the power play. That accounts for 44.8 per cent of their goals this season, which puts them fourth in the NHL in that department behind the Atlanta Thrashers (52.4) Phoenix Coyotes (46.9) and Montreal Canadiens (47.0). Which makes it all the more perplexing why Leaf coach Pat Quinn railed against the new NHL earlier this season, a rant that earned him a $1,000 fine from the league. "It's a different game," Sundin said. "You can't take as many penalties the way we have been doing and we have to be better in our own end."
