According to a friend of mine who is a fan of the Leafs, the rumor is that they're throwing the waffles to insist that the players aren't "getting a good enough breakfast and lacking energy".
I had a much grosser theory, so I'll just stick to that rumored one.
The most popular choice among the Red Wings as to who would volunteer to play goalie – several Panthers did in their game – was Brendan Smith.
"He's pretty competitive and he seems to be good at everything," Justin Abdelkader said. "He'd volunteer himself."
Babcock was a bit more hesitant about Smith. "Yeah, yeah, just work on getting out of your zone," Babcock said
