Ed Belfour wasn't about to tackle the issue of regulated goalie equipment with kid's gloves.

Not after the NHL has noticeably reduced the size of his own catching glove so much.

"The puck keeps popping out of there more than before," Belfour said yesterday.

"That's the thing I've noticed the most with all the equipment changes."

Leafs coach Pat Quinn was asked about the odd habits that seem to follow goalies and Belfour in particular.

"You get pucks shot at you 100 miles an hour, something is wrong with you," Quinn said. "I think Eddie has some eccentricities, but we all do."

No matter, Quinn said.

"He is one of the best competitors I have met in the game," Quinn said.

THE DOCTOR'S OFFICE

Forward Jeremy Williams suffered a shoulder injury and was scheduled for an MRI yesterday afternoon. Meanwhile the side of defenceman Marc Moro's face was mangled during a morning scrimmage. After a visit to the trainers' room, Moro was able to return.
