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 :)
In all seriousness, we saw an awful game on Monday and they could have let that slide them into a multi-game skid...instead against the Pens they came out strong (well, after the first few minutes lol), and held out until the refs took over. I think (hope!) they're going to come on fire tonight and kick the living crap out of the Sabre's both physically and on the scoresheet.
So Chara gets into a fight today and of course Mike Johnson drags out the Chara- McCabe fight video. Can't wait until that POS is relegated to Spengler Cup duty.
With a 4-0 lead, the Blues brought the game back to 4-3 before ultimately losing. Do I even need to check the scoresheet to see if he refs helped that along?
@Loric76 Brings back memories....
@Yaknowwhat I thought you were talking about your period.
@DeclanK he goes 100% on every shift, and the second he gives less than 100% he gets sent down...Nonis clearly sending a message to the kid about how he has to play if he wants to be an NHL regular
@reenergized If we don't get 4 points, than I would be exploring a shake-up trade.
@Jmessih Its funny, the way they've been playing Ranger deserves 2nd pairing. Fraser Franson is more scary for our fans than Sabres on the 2nd unit.
@Jmessih Oh god that looks horrendous. Thank fuck we have Phaneuf.
@Loric76 Fuck that. Reilly has looked great in my opinion. Wasn't it the case last home and home that we lost with Reilly in the press box and won when he was on the bench?
@Jmessih Old news. Loric had this posted ages ago.
Grigorenko is that you...?
@Gozo You're mother's loose
@Loric76 Honestly I think it is too bad Reimer played in the 'Bus since either goalie would have been chased, and Reims owns the Penguins. I think we would have beat them with him in net.
EDIT: but obviously he deserved the start after Washington.
@Jmessih Bettsy said the fans will be the big winners...yep, the fans of whoever plays the Leafs.
I hoping this will help us with the refs. Much like Boston's situation...
@Jmessih it's more likely that once Rogers kicks the CBC out, they move Leafs games to a Rogers exclusive channel that's only available to subscribers and not on Bell, Cogeco, Shaw, etc...
But Cameron... SJ is an elite team and elite teams know how to handle leads unlike the leafs ;)
Nope... because if anything happens to Orr then we'll need him.
