  • DJBrianBurke

    If Scott gets his butt handed to him early, Leafs have this game in the
    bag (and tomorrow too). My 2 cents before I take off for the game :)

  • JWaterdrager

  • dontcallmeshirley

    Keys to the game
    – Stay of the box
    -Shoot the GD puck.
    lol

  • BPsotka

    I’m feeling a hattrick tonight for the good guys. Kadri, Phil, or Fraser seem likely options.

  • Alec Brownscombe

    Predictions go

  • MaxwellHowe

    I want a 60 minute effort and a serious drubbing.  We all deserve it.  Then cut down the ice time so the big guns rest  for tomorrow nite.

  • Cameron19

    I hope that’s not the score at the end of the 2nd.

  • BPsotka

    Alec Brownscombe 6-1 B&W

  • MaxwellHowe

    Alec Brownscombe 7-2 Leafs.  Give us a shot of hope again

  • Cameron19

    Alec Brownscombe I predict people will freak out about a period of the game where the Leafs put up very few shots.

  • Alec Brownscombe

    TheCanucksnaphook Meaning definite blowout. Thanks!

  • wiski

    Go

  • lucjen75

    TheCanucksnaphook And it’s contagious.

  • dontcallmeshirley

    3-1 leafs with an empty netter, shots 28-28, pp 0-2 pk-0-2

  • gjdevlin

    The previous write up on Csrlyes defense system is bang on WHY it doesn’t work. Collapsing forwards in too deep and the the other team cycles along the boards where their defense can send it back in dee. By the time we get bet luck out, our forwards are too tired to create offensive and have to change. You just can’t have all forwards defending deep. One has to hang back to reduce space. Randy’s system isn’t working. He’s gotta change it.

  • MaxwellHowe

    Cameron19 Alec Brownscombe pffff.. why not just predict snow this winter

  • wiski

    Yaknowwhat 4-1 and we keep it there 😉

    Leafs are sitting Frazer McLaren tonight so the fisticuffs are all on Orr. And Fraser. And Clarkson.

  • GreekGod

    gjdevlin 
    Worked last year…

  • Cameron19

    gjdevlin Problem solved. Give Randy a call!

  • http://i.imgur.com/MyKj5C3.gif ingy56

    Alec Brownscombe I predict 37 cliches from Millen.

  • wendelsfist

    Loric76 kessel too…

  • dontcallmeshirley

    gjdevlin It would work, but  each defender has to win his one-on-one battle. We are winning the those battles .

  • Loric76

    dontcallmeshirley even shots lol

  • Alec Brownscombe

    wiski LEAFS

  • Loric76

    wendelsfist Loric76 he’s the backup

  • BPsotka

    dontcallmeshirley how can our pk be 0-2 if we only allow 1 goal against?

  • wiski

    Alec Brownscombe Umm are you in love or somethin. 😉

  • gjdevlin

    It can work with the right players and defenseman. Randy I think is going to have to make adjustments rather than telling all the players to follow his system.

  • lieffan

    wiski Alec Brownscombe Don’t knock it, Killers are fantastic.
    Finally someone with tastes in this forum LOL

  • dontcallmeshirley

    Loric76 dontcallmeshirley Dont want to be too daring.

    The entire city of Buffalo smells like shit. Just like my defence. https://twitter.com/search?q=%23Leafs&src=hash https://twitter.com/search?q=%23Sabres&src=hash

    wendelsfist Loric76 He needs to get a stiffer flex for his slashing stick.

  • Cameron19

    Yaknowwhat gjdevlin It’s all about execution.  It didn’t appear to work for long stretches in Anaheim either, but then suddenly they’d be dominant.

  • http://i.imgur.com/MyKj5C3.gif ingy56

    Yaknowwhat TheCanucksnaphook TMI

  • MaxwellHowe

    Yaknowwhat gjdevlin He has great experience, but he may be inflexible I think

  • Alec Brownscombe

    @lieffan wiski Alec Brownscombe Thank you. They’re awesome.

  • wiski

    @lieffan wiski Alec Brownscombe I have nothing against the Killers, it’s not a pump me up kinda song.

  • gjdevlin

    Keys to winning tonight. Avoid being boxed in the zone. Clear the zone out in two passes or bounce it off the glass.
    Shoot early and often. Create the rebounds. Don’t sit back on one goal.

  • Alec Brownscombe

    wiski Alec Brownscombe This forum doesn’t need a pump me up. We need “calm the fuck down and relax.”
