Same lineup for the Leafs except with James Reimer in net. Herculean effort required in a back to back.
GO LEAFS GO.
Greg Cronin earlier today:
J.V.R. - Holland - Kessel
Kulemin - Kadri - Lupul
Raymond - Smith - Clarkson
D'Amigo - McClement - Ashton
Liles - Phaneuf
Gardiner - Rielly
Gunnar - Franson
J.V.R. - McClement - Kessel
McLaren - Smith - Clarkson
Raymond - Kadri - Kulemin
D'Amigo - Holland - Lupul
Fraser - Ranger
Gunnar - Phaneuf
Gardiner - Franson
Once again I really liked Jerry D's game. At this point I see no need to send him back down as long as he keeps doing his thing.
so whats the word on LILES? healthy scratch or is he injured? I thought he has looked great since returning to the lineup.....RANGER is done, needs to go....
In better news, I'll be at the Hershey Centre tomorrow. I'll let y'all know how Ekbald looks.... -_-
(Kidding about tanking though)
The Leafs pitched a no hitter tonite. There wasn't a check made in anger when it counted
Good nite folks
Im still hoping Santa brings us a .500+ record for Xmas. Chances of getting a piece a goal are going through the roof
Just got home from work and there was 3 minutes left. Sounds like we didn't put in the same effort tonight as we did last night. Fatigue or indifference?
@Cameron19 Looks about right...
@juliesucks He looked like he might able to hold the fort for a bit but around shot #15 or so 12-15 minutes in #2 went in, and the floodgates opened.
@juliesucks One of the 3 was his fault, but the first period was a total gong show - could have been 8-0
@Wilbur Or a solid work ethic for 60 minutes.... As the norm, not now and then.
@Shift_Disturber1 It was a beauty shot. It really should have counted as a 3 pointer...
@Wilbur Yeah. Much more effective than Ashton. His skating really allows him to get involved in the play a lot more. I worry about his size and whether or not he can stay healthy over a long season, but at the same time that's not a reason to play a guy who's still on an ELC.
@whalz But if Ranger goes then who the hell is gonna set the other team's forwards up with beauty scoring chances?
@wiski I love the Leafs in December
@wiski wtf cares is they win in regulation Mirtle you tool......2pts is 2pts regardless if you win in regulation or OT
@wiski Who the hell retweets that? Not cool. Must be habs fans.
@ingy56 But Why Randy?
@ingy56So what else is new?
@NotSince67 I've said before that MLHS is basically group therapy
@NotSince67 I've said before, we love this site when we're winning, but we need it when we aren't. I used to scream at the TV for whatever reason, now I can vent here. I think my wife likes MLHS, and she doesn't even watch hockey. It just keeps me calmer.
@Optimustic Contender vs pretender.
@Beleafer29 Tim should get a job
@Wilbur My vote is Peter Holland.
@Wilbur lol..take your pick
@NotSince67 @Wilbur @Cameron19 @Optimustic No worries…I have realistic expectations. I didn't expect us to win any games against BOS, LA, STL, CHI and even PIT at this stage. Particularly, with our injuries and suspensions. I'm at the point where I'm evaluating individuals and trying to see where they fit long-term.
@Cameron19 @Wilbur @Optimustic I agree with you yet take those guys away from St. Louis and they are still much further along as contenders than we are. That's okay, it's not going to happen overnight for us. We're still a couple of years away. Hey, Pietrangelo, Bouwmeester and Shattenkirk are currently head and shoulders above our top 3 Dmen at this time and so is their coach at least in my opinion.
