Rats Eliminated

On Tuesday night, the River Rats were defeated by the Phantoms 2-0. Philly has won the series four games to three and the season is over for the Rats.

This was a phenomenal series for both goaltenders. Scott Munroe got the job done when everything was on the line, but losing goaltender Michael Leighton was probably the best "losing" goaltender any playoff series has ever seen.

Now that the Rats have been, um, exterminated, the Hurricanes organ-eye-zation can make signing Leighton the #1 priority. Johnny Crackers is already gone. There's no way in the world he sniffs an offer sheet from the Hurricanes.

Tough break for the Rats. Would have been great to see them advance. A lot of talent on that team. But now, I wonder if the 'Canes will bring in Leighton and have him here working with Cam, Barrasso and Friesen all summer. Hope so.
