Leighton better at home

After pulling MIchael Leighton in game one, Peter Laviolette went back to his starter for game two. In all likelihood that’s what he’ll do again, especially considering how good Leights has been at home.

Besides, Leighton is so much better at home, and that is where this series is heading. The stats are striking. In two games at home in the finals, Leighton has a 2.86 goals-against average and a .918 save percentage. In three games on the road, he has a 5.31 goals-against average and a .831 save percentage.
