Shark Club Game Day: Game #71, Lightning at Maple Leafs

1710

With a win tonight, the Leafs could leapfrog Tampa into third in the Atlantic (for the time being… Tampa has two games in hand).

How is James Reimer going to respond? Will the Leafs calm the rumbling masses (TSN Radio actually mentioned the “18 wheeler” today after two losses in a row)?

Each game becomes bigger than the one previous at this time of season.

    Alec Brownscombe Burtonboy  I’ll wait to see for sure . Never know with ole mutton jaws

  • BBirde

    Alec Brownscombe Burtonboy  Only way that lineup would be nice is if Kulemin caused that 4th line to play more than 2 mins a game.

    LOL this is too much

  • Bruffins

    I have a good feeling about tonight…. 4-1 Leafs, Kessel with 2, Kadri, Phaneuf

  • Burtonboy

    Alec Brownscombe  I’m slowing down when you beat me to the punch

  • wendelsway1

    GO LEAFS GO!!!

    Was Fat heads tweet a joke?

  • Jordan29

    Amazing, all it fucking takes is 2 road games lost and this team is magically lucky to have a playoff spot apparently. Fucking stupid hockey market, just sitting there laughing at the whole Country eat up the media hype about hockey. Making money all day long. Teams are able to lose 2 games in a row, IT HAPPENS

  • Burtonboy

    Jordan29  No its an official statement from Reimers agent

    “The tweet I sent out last night, while inadvertently relevant to other comments made…

    https://twitter.com/TSNBobMcKenzie https://twitter.com/TSNBobMcKenzie/status/446416507744944128
    …was not a response to post game comments from Randy Carlyle or James Reimer. I didn’t hear those interviews until later…

    …That said, obviously this has been a trying season for James but those are issues that we will deal with in the off season…

    …especially in a big hockey market. I will always have my clients’ back.” That from Ray Petkau, agent for James Reimer.

  • wiski

    wendelsway1  In regufuckinglation please

  • Burtonboy

    Just watching Carlyle’s altercation with Giggy when they were is Anaheim . Nasty shit

  • mike_84

    I think Clarkson should be put with Holland. they seems to get a good cycle going. just gotta find a winger that complements them and maybe is there finisher

  • wiski

    Burtonboy  where?

  • Jordan29

    Carlyle is a fucking moron. Fuck what an idiot. I cant wait till hes fired someday. Why on earth would you start shit with Reimer in the media. If they were all suppose to tell the truth, Reimer would say “Ya man, I should have had one goal, but it doesnt help when your team is a piece of shit defensively over the last……I dont know, 5 months?”

    Leafs vs Tampa at ACC!!!! http://t.co/adlZR1E4TD

  • Burtonboy

    wiski Burtonboy  They just showed it on TSN . They were going at it hot and heavy at the bench during a time out

  • GVR_JVR

    Well I was at the Joe last night and I was just thinking the whole time, “Wow, we’re getting beat by the AHL Red Wings”. We should have stomped them but Howard did play well. One ugly standout for last night was Lupul. I watched him a lot and he just looked like he was forcing everything.

  • Jordan29

    Burtonboy wiski  ya, thats cause Carlyle is a fucking moron, and has no clue how to communicate with players

  • Burtonboy

    Jordan29 Burtonboy wiski  Last thing we need is this bullshit right now

  • mike_84

    CanuckUKinToronto  2 out of the next 3 should do it

  • Jordan29

    Burtonboy Jordan29 wiski  exactly. I cant believe when I woke up this morning I read this. I thought I was reading about a 5 year old starting a fight

  • wiski

    Orr and Ashton scratched along with Bernier.

  • mike_84

    CanuckUKinToronto mike_84  Yes it would preferred thats for sure

  • newkb

    Burtonboy Jordan29 wiski  The one good thing is that Carlyle was not a Nonis hire….

  • Jordan29

    Leafs are going to smoke TB tonight, and show why they should fear us in the playoffs. Big game from Kessel and Reimer in the bag. Done

  • Alec Brownscombe

    newkb Burtonboy Jordan29 wiski  “the guy we inherited”

  • mike_84

    wiski  Why is ashton even up with the big club right now? I rather MCL in the press box and Ashton playing for the marlies

  • http://mapleleafshotstove.com/ Radar O’Rielly

    A must win, even if to stop the moaning around here.

  • newkb

    Jordan29  Who hits Reimer in the bag?

  • wiski

    CanuckUKinToronto wiski  Ranger I guess

  • MLHS_Luke

    There’s a Canadian Tire thing for the Leafs on March 22nd where you can meet Sittler, Clark, or Bower depending on the location:  http://mapleleafs.nhl.com/club/page.htm?id=96692

  • Jordan29

    newkb Burtonboy Jordan29 wiski  yup, If we dont get past the 1st round this year he better be fucking gone

  • Bruffins

    wiski  
    guess Ashton didn’t earn it with his 2 minutes of time on ice in the last 7 games

  • mcloki

    I’m beginning to hate TSN hockey panels as much as HNIC broadcasters

  • Burtonboy

    Well its 7 d again and Kulie on the 4th line with McClement

  • wiski

    mike_84 wiski  that is the question

  • Alec Brownscombe

    Burtonboy  Seems ridiculous

  • mike_84

    CanuckUKinToronto wiski  if in you mean he made sure the bench didn’t fly away

  • wiski

    CanuckUKinToronto wiski  ? don’t know then

  • dlb eh
