The Eagle vs. Cujo

by Staff Writer / Toronto Maple Leafs

It could be the battle Leafs fans have been talking about since early July or it could be the most hyped game never to happen in team history. The Detroit Red Wings make their only visit to Air Canada Centre Saturday night and everyone wants to see Ed Belfour face Curtis Joseph in net.


Will new Wings' head coach Dave Lewis let Cujo play? Does Pat Quinn want Ed Belfour between the pipes? You'll have to tune in and find out. To curb your appetite here's a comparison of the two goalies this season and over their careers.

Curtis Joseph decided he'd have a better chance at the Cup in Detroit.
