Shark Club Game Day: Maple Leafs at Lightning (7:30 p.m., Leafs TV)

1821

The Leafs are looking to redeem a lame effort in Sunrise with a better showing in Tampa.  

Jonathan Bernier will start for the Leafs, and the team in front of him owes him a better effort. 

A couple of fast teams here, this game could be a track meet. That will suit the Leafs just fine.

    Got a bad felling about this one.

  • TheJFish

    Smithson should not be in the NHL

  • Jay31

    ProfessorRance  He somehow ended up with the most icetime of all forwards in the Panthers game

  • Cloud09

    ProfessorRance  Apparently the bottom six doesn’t matter anyways so Go Phil Go!

  • rustynail

    1st 2 lines better be on fire tonight

  • wendelsway1

    Just want two points tonight…..really don’t care how they do it……GO LEAFS GO!!!

  • Cloud09

    rustynail  That’s how successful teams win right??

  • rustynail

    Cloud09 rustynail  some of them get help from 3rd and 4th

  • Cloud09

    rustynail Cloud09  You don’t say?? Thought that was all myth and legend that doesn’t apply to the Leafs.

  • ProfessorRance

    Jay31 ProfessorRance  I just shake my head at that.

  • ProfessorRance

    TheJFish  Smithson should not be in the AHL.

  • Cloud09

    wendelsway1  Two points would be good. A win tonight and a scab loss will put the Leafs 1 point behind Tampa for 2nd in the division.

  • martyzylstra

    without the lace bitten Holland i’m predicting loss #2

  • Alec Brownscombe

    Big guns gonna need to get right back to the scoring ways. Bottom six is a dog’s breakfast.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Alec Brownscombe  Another loss tonite big guy.

  • Cloud09

    Alec Brownscombe  Hopefully the mom’s laid down the law today.

  • The Truth Hurts

    Yeah line 4 is gonna lose it again lol

  • Cloud09

    CanuckUKinToronto  Been there for a while. Crosby inflated his #’s and got paid because of it.

    CanuckUKinToronto Cloud09  More than likely what to expect over the next 7 years.

  • ProfessorRance

  • Alec Brownscombe

    CanuckUKinToronto  We’ll have it up shortly

  • ProfessorRance

    CanuckUKinToronto  Think his body has taken its toll.

  • Alec Brownscombe

    Cloud09 Alec Brownscombe  They should be more motivated. They went golfing and fishing with their dads. The moms will have them  grounded in their hotel rooms doing if they’re bad. 
    I was always more scared of my mom

  • Loric76

    gotta love the pop-ins…I got up to get a drink and the doorbell rings…parents were “in the neighbourhood”, they live like 45 minutes away lol…won’t admit they wanted to see the kids.  At least they brought dinner lol

  • Cloud09

    The Truth Hurts  Would help a lot if they could chip in a goal or two when the top guns are firing on all cylinders.

  • ProfessorRance

    Alec Brownscombe CanuckUKinToronto  You’re the man Sobchak!

  • Cloud09

    Loric76  Always better when mom cooks.

  • ProfessorRance

    Loric76  Share some of that food!
