Leafs' Dion Phaneuf to keep on firing
By MIKE ZEISBERGER, QMI Agency
WINNIPEG - When Dion Phaneuf steps onto the Bell Centre ice surface Saturday night, he should get a nice comfy feeling all over.
After all, this is the only rink in which he has registered a point in all season.
Three weeks ago, Phaneuf registered an assist in the Leafs season-opening 2-1 road win over the Montreal Canadiens. In the subsequent 10 games, he has been held off the scoresheet.
Now the Leafs return to the home barn of the Habs for a marquee battle on Hockey Day in Canada. And Phaneuf himself knows its time to pump up his stats if he wants to help his team make a playoff push.
