101 Shots, 98 Saves, Not Good Enough???


“Philadelphia took an incredible 101 shots on goal in the game, and Albany’s Michael Leighton, who won the Aldege “Baz” Bastien Award as the AHL’s outstanding goaltender during the 2007-08 regular season, made 98 saves, believed to be an AHL record. The Phantoms’ Scott Munroe stopped 65 of 67 shots to earn the win.”

Leighton has never been able to stick in the NHL – games with Chicago, Nashville and Philly (http://hockeygoalies.org/bio/leighton.html) – but maybe he will get another look. To have such a great season in the AHL and then last into the 5th overtime while facing 101 shots… someone should consider him…

Way to go Michael!!!
