TORONTO - Did someone forget the syrup?
When the final horn sounded at the conclusion of the game between the Maple Leafs and Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night at the Air Canada Centre, a pile of waffles was thrown on to the ice, with one of them hitting the stick of Leafs defenceman Francois Beauchemin.
"Who brings waffles to the game?" a bemused Chris Pronger, the Flyers defenceman, said afterward.
Beauchemin brushed off the breakfast food attack.
"I didn't see what it was," Beauchemin said. "Something came to my stick. The way we're playing, it is frustrating for everybody."
The Leafs lost 4-1 to the Flyers and are nine points out of a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference with the Montreal Canadiens at the ACC on Saturday night.
Toronto is 7-6-2-1 on home ice in 2010-11.
