Shark Club Game Day: Game #70, Maple Leafs at Red Wings

1322

The Leafs will hit the 70-game pole with this four-point game in Detroit. It’s do or die territory for the Red Wings while the Leafs look to keep pace in the divisional playoff race.

Puck drop with the sun still up… There’s no better time of year.

Lupul has been killing me lately. Hopefully he picks it up. Holland sure looked good in limited ice.

Here's one for you to think about? RC says 1:"If the goalie can't stop it from out there, we'll get another one!" Then he says 2:"I don't think we shoot the puck enough from the points...What we try to preach to our group is you're not trying to score goals from there all the time. Your job is to get the puck on net so that, which today's goaltenders, most of them have the bigger pads, there's lots of rebounds, give our forwards a second opportunity. Ok so it's fine for opponents to take as he puts it weak shots from the point, which our goalie can stop. But our team has to try to shoot more weak shots from the point so we can get goals or rebounds. WTF? No shots from anywhere keeps them from scoring RC. Why give them a chance at all. There it is folks RC is BRILLIANT. That defies logic. Your right guys he has to go.

Anyone else think Gardiner and Rielly should be pp1?  Also they should get more EV ice time than Franson as well?

If the Leafs can't beat the AHL Red Wings there is no hope in the playoffs, that is if they make the playoffs.  And what has happened to Kessel?  He is making bad decisions all over the ice.  Most unlike him.

With the way the team played tonight and the way the pucks found the net for the Wings, Bernier would've been fodder also. They can't keep relying on the goalies to be lights out all the time. The Corsi or stats on that would say otherwise. Just ask our many resident stats, know it alls. They are right.

@deedrag  In his defense.... RC knows his guys have all collapsed around our net.  Opposition forwards have a hard time capitalizing on rebounds (which Bernier rarely gives up).  Other teams don't collapse the way we do making it easier to pick up a rebound in the slot.

They were dynamic on the PP tonight. PP#2 was better than PP#1. Be preaching splitting up Dion and Franson for what seems like an eternity now. Dions shot/tip was him coming off the RD (again).

@Burtonboy  I don't follow but he doesn't even blame Reimer.  He even says worse about the teams play before the Reimer comment.

@felixjvd Can they even play playoff hockey? I haven't seen it really at all this season.

@Burtonboy  the nyquist goal was the killer.....that shot was a perfect shot, but from that angle, that one hurts

@Belfour20  we have very good players on this team, and when the team plays focused we can beat most teams. They just need to bring a consistent intensity to more games....they seem to turn it up for stretches and then it drops off a bit

@DeclanK @CanuckUKinToronto  Need to get back to teeing up Dion for one timers. Don't care if he misses half the time, the Leafs don't have a weapon like that right now because Franson plays on the right.

@wendelsfist @Burtonboy  You could see he was pissed with all the clutch and grab . The comment on Reimer was overblown by the media as usual

@Reversethecurse13 @deedrag@Burtonboy No way Alfie is classy or even near as classy as Dion. Just look at Dion"s closet, his car, his manners, his hot wife ( no way you attract her without class) he's been raised well.
