The Toronto Maple Leafs picked up their fourth win in a row in a 2-nothing shutout over Buffalo. Jonas Gustavsson had 32 saves for the Leafs and Nikolai Kulemin had a goal, an assist and one crushing hit that sent Sabres agitator Patrick Kaleta to the ice. Former Collingwood Blue Matt Belesky scored his first N-H-L goal in Anaheim’s 5-2 victory over Dallas. Elsewhere, Ottawa beat Pittsburgh 5-1; Boston defeated Winnipeg 5-3; Calgary doubled New Jersey 6-3 and Vancouver got by Tampa Bay 5-4.
Meanwhile, Wasaga Beach’s Jason Arnott had a goal and Jaroslav Halak made 19 saves for St. Louis in a 3-nothing blanking of Montreal at the Bell Centre. Ironically, Halak was traded by Montreal to the Blues in June of 2010.
By the end of the month, the Stayner Siskins should win the Georgian Bay Mid Ontario Hockey League regular season. The Siskins played five games over the holidays, winning 4 and losing only to the rival Alliston Hornets, 5-2 on Dec. 30. Next game for Stayner is this Thursday at home against Alliston. If Alliston has any realistic hope of catching Stayner, they’ll need to win tomorrow night’s game.
