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 :)

At least Ashton on the 4th line. Like what he brings. Great board work.

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?

Islanders are fading out of sight. I wonder how long before something drops there.

@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?

@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...

@Cameron19 

But Cameron... SJ is an elite team and elite teams know how to handle leads unlike the leafs ;)

@Loric76 Hopefully not the one that's been sucking huge on Friday nights in Buffalo for decades.

@Cameron19 Man's inhumanity to man all for savings on electronics. Some of the video I've seen today is shocking.

@ingy56 Wouldn't expect anything less... Real fans go to Buffalo.

@Loric76 If that was DiPietro in net he would have been on the IR for two years.

@Jmessih 

Nope... because if anything happens to Orr then we'll need him.

@reenergized @Cameron19 Yea, I don't think the loss of so many key players can be overlooked here - nor can our record despite the problems.

@Loric76 @BPsotka That's what I was wondering. Else he wants anybody who can fight on the ice, but after last time I'd say that is not the case.

@GreekGod @MaxwellHowe The enforcer era is ending quickly.  McLaren is just a magnet for penalties.  And who on Boston or LA might be characterized as just a goon or enforcer?

@Cloud09 @ingy56 Yes, I hear you... I used to go to the Sabres games all the time when I lived out that way. Great atmosphere, especially at the old Aud.

@ingy56 @Cloud09 Bell Centre is an expensive trip, cost me $500 for two tickets and you're surrounded by a bunch of stuck up Hab fans. At least in Buffalo it's 50/50 and even better in Ottawa with 100% support.
