His two goals and three points in 10 games is fairly adequate, considering ice time and the heightened level of play. I’d like to see what Crabb can do on the power play, but he’s thrown on the opposite spectrum of special teams, which will only make him stronger. He did, however, have a bad break tonight on the Vincent Lecavalier power play goal, which was spoon-fed by Steven Stamkos, who was being covered by Crabb. But that’s all right.

Power Play A Success In Toronto

from Damien Cox of The Spin, Other than the breakthrough seasons both Phil Kessel and Joffrey Lupul appear to be having, this would be the first convincing piece of evidence that the Maple Leafs’ strong start may not be a mirage.
