Game PreviewClicky.

There will be no wrong-handed ball hockey at practise tomorrow if the Leafs replicate the same showing as last game and get dominated again by Carlyle’s red-hot ex team.

GO LEAFS GO.

Best guess at tonight’s lines (will update when lines are reported):

Clarkson's regular season debut on Friday, followed by his home opener on Saturday. I guess Leivo's sent down?

Great game and good all around team effort. Killing that 5 on 3 without McClem turned the tide. The captain and the big guns stood up and won the game for us. Bernier with some nice stops once the team settled in and exuding confidence with the lead.

@NotInsane Yea, it was an interesting presser there. I think he mentioned that the team was trying to establish a forecheck, but struggled with the short passing game -- no better example than on the power-play.

That was in regards to the first period by the way.

@Reversethecurse67 well, the way they were playing by the end of the 1st it looked like it was going to be a re-run of the Chicago game.  what was the most painful to watch was the apparent lack of skating and intensity.  Luckily they started working harder; honestly I was happy just seeing good hockey from them again.

@LeafsForLife Feels great to snuff out a team on a hot streak. Great start for ANA road trip. :)

@TheCanucksnaphook Yeah i thought you were just being a smart ass at the time. Pure clairvoyant! Good calls buddy!!!

@PeterZeroOne thought they were playing really well until the 2nd goal went in, and when they looked bad on the PP things went downhill fast in the period.

@mORRganRielly @B_Leaf I dont agree. First of all they play more than 2 mins a game. But it has its merits during the regular season. Everybody on the team plays bigger when Orr and McLaren are around to back them up.

@mORRganRielly yeah there was a play in the 3rd where ranger tried to set up orr in vain. hopefully one of the marlies can give us some skilled grit.

@DeclanK @LeafsForLife My apologies. I understand what you mean by hottest team in the league now. I was thinking with no losses in regulation, but i got it now.
