Babs had these lines for Game 5's morning skate as well but swapped Plekanec and Kadri prior to the game.

In a do or die game though, I think he'll stick with the shutdown centre he's trusted for the past 2 seasons.

With Leafs having last change, it be interesting to see which way he goes against the Bergeron line.  Without a doubt it will be Marleau-Marner on the wings.  At Center, I wonder if he chooses the centerman based on which zone or other situational choices?

That we can even have this discussion about which matchup centre to use is why I was pretty pleased about the Plekanec trade.

and now that Plekanec's goatee power is growing back on him, it is real nice to have 2 Centers that can go head to head with Bergeron's line.

Both games that the Leafs won, that line was off the scoreboard...

Nice to see the Docs also on the fan side!

Go Leafs Go!!! Lets take this to 7!

There was some talk that Donato was going to replace Heinen (who has 0 points in 5 games), but this probably works out to be a plus for us.

Wouldn't be a bad time for Matthews to show a little more intensity as well

Hopefully the penalty disparity BS from last game doesn't repeat itself and they actually get to play after the first period.

I sincerely hope the Leafs have an answer to the way Boston steamrolled them in the third period of the last game.  Sure, part of it was probably because of all the penalties, but this needs to be addressed by Babcock and the coaching staff.  The Leafs are extremely fortunate to have taken this series to six games.  Boston hit the post twice last game and Andersen stood on his head.

The opening of the first period is going to be extremely interesting to watch.  It will probably set the tone for the entire game.  I'm really hoping the Leafs can hem Boston in their zone for awhile.  That's when they're playing at their best.

The Leafs have hit the post on some occasions as well, Dermott and Kapanen.  I think that stuff evens itself out.  Hopefully they stay off the penalty radar.

Big black cloud hanging over this game, for sure, so honestly I just hope they find a way to pull this one out.  Today is going to hurt for a while for me...too close to my family's home.

Go Leafs Go, nonetheless.

Yeah it's really tragic news.  The suspect looks deranged.  My thoughts go out to all involved.  The cop that took him down is an absolute hero.  I hope they have some kind of special award or recognition for him.

The one thing that bugs me about cupping is that they are never symmetrical.

Human bodies are never 100% symmetrical. Don't be so picky.

He's the type of player you don't want to piss off.  Better to try and pin him and contain him rather than hit him.  Hitting him just fires him up to play better.

My least favourite thing about JvR are his blind finesse stick pokes for pucks coming up the boards.

I don't think he's been a rock. I think he's too soft in the puck especially when it's dumped in. It's the way he plays to. 20 mins to go. C'mon Leafs

Babcockís decision to move Plek to play with Marner was a brilliant move.

This might be the best protect a 1-goal lead period I have seen from this team.

You don't change a winning lineup like that. Leafs have won 3 of 4 without him. You take your best shot in game 7 with the group that got you there.

The first two periods, we didn't deserve to be ahead.  But that third period ... after that, we deserved the win.  That was an outstanding defensive period up and down the lineup, forwards, D, and of course 31.

I don't know if it's just me getting older and less worked up, but the team somehow seems calmer now than last year and 2013. It feels like the Leafs are going to win this series.

Also, Matthews is starting to pick his game up. If he starts flying again we should be able to beat them with speed and skill.

I did not expect them to get this far, even before games 1 and 2. Kudos to the Leafs for a gutsy effort. Winning game 7 will be a tall order. 3 in a row is hard at the best of times. Winning 2 of the 3 on the road against what I still believe is a vastly superior opponent, even moreso.

No expectations for game 7. I'm satisfied with the season they had. Everything now is a bonus.

I wonder if this is a deliberate strategy by the Leafs. Don't hit Marchand (ignore him) and Marchand doesn't get amped up and into the game.

I remember going into watching the game thinking, this will be fine. In fact, I am still disappointed in Game 4's breakdown because yesterday could have brought the house down.

When Plekanec dropped the dagger on them, I tried to Lou-face it as much as possible. I managed a single fist pump in silence.

The correct lip-reading of Shanahan is, "F-'n good play".

Highlight of the game was Marchand smashing his stick on an offside late in the game. He was pissed and totally unproductive down the stretch. I felt like we go to him.

Brown/Hyman/Plekmanac ice time is well deserved. Their hustle is amazing. I have a sweet spot for role players in the playoffs. They remind me of the Maltby and Draper.

I hated Plekmanac but I am thrilled to be wrong.

I can't remember if it was in the first or second but I noticed another change in defensive deployment:

Offensive zone faceoff:   Dermott - Zaitsev
Defensive zone faceoff:   Gardiner - Polak

I haven't looked at the shift charts but Babcock did that quite a bit whenever Bergeron's line wasn't on the ice.

For the most part, I don't mind it.  Polak's biggest weaknesses are probably holding the offensive blueline and in transition.  He's much more useful in his own end.  Zaitsev is much better suited to be on the offensive blueline.

But yeah, maybe in the third they didn't have many offensive zone draws so Gardiner just played a TON to shelter Dermott.

Win or lose this series the one thing thatís going to piss me off the most is the numbers of times Marchand can be hit and we skate by him. I donít get it. Is he off limits?

I wonder if this is a deliberate strategy by the Leafs. Don't hit Marchand (ignore him) and Marchand doesn't get amped up and into the game.

Whatever they're doing seems to be working.

Oh I see, when Dappleganger you'll agree with it, but when I say it, you just ignore it.  That hurts Herman.  That hurts where my heart should be.

What an exciting game. Kapanen, Plekanec, Brown, Nylander and Marner really stood out for me. And I thought Gardiner was very good on the back end of things.

A plea to Babcock for game 7: Pleeeease stop sending your forwards to the Bruins blue line during defensive zone breakouts. The amount of icings and giveaways as a result of 0 forwards being anywhere near their defensize zone was staggering. You could see how much easier breaking out was in the third period when that silly 'stagnant blueline standing' strategy wasn't employed and how much better the team played as a result.

Anyway that's my armchair criticism/observation for the day ;)  I'm happy the Leafs made a series out of this; Boston is clearly the superior team.

I was thinking that last night especially during the second period, but upon further reflection...I don't think it's clear cut. The Bruins are certainly more effective at certain phases of the game. They are more effective at establishing offensive zone play, better along the boards whereas the Leafs are more of a quick-strike offense. This makes the game look skewed in the Bruins favor but here we are 3-3 with one game to go. Both goalies have been good but Andersen has been better the past 2 games so I don't think one can say that the Bruins are clearly superior overall...

I think the biggest advantage Boston has is more experienced players.  There are still a few players on that team left over from their Cup winning team.  They also went to the finals in 2013.

Leafs have Hainsey who has a cup, outside of that the only players on the Leafs who have won a playoff round are Marleau, Plekanec and Polak. 

This is a learn on the fly series for the young guys, and I think the Leafs have looked better and better with each game.  We'll see how good they look Wednesday.

Last night was Andersen's 40th playoff game, and he took Anaheim all the way to Game 7 of the Conference Finals one year (the only team to take Chicago to 7 games in those playoffs).

According to ESPN, Boston's roster had 917 playoff games total while the Leafs roster had 663 games. However, that's counting Brian Gionta's 112 games and he hasn't and won't play in this series. So the edge isn't massive. A lot of the guys from Boston's Cup runs are gone (except of course much of the core), and Boston is also relying on a lot of young/inexperienced players.

I think the main difference, though, is that a lot of the Boston players with experience are also pretty valuable players. Krejci, Marchand, Bergeron, Backes, Nash, Rask, Krug and Chara beats JVR, Marleau, Plekanec, Andersen, Hainsey and Polak pretty soundly, imo.

Krejci, Backes, Nash, Krug have done barely anything this whole series. The B's whole series literally (actually figuratively, but who cares!) rests on the top line. You shut them down and they shouldn't be able to match Toronto's depth on paper, regardless of experience.

I don't neccesarily disagree with any of that (although Krug has 7 or 8 points this series I think), I was just pointing out the differences in the calibre of experienced players in context of the debate as to which team has more experience.

That Bergeron line has brutalized Toronto though and could have scored about a half dozen goals yesterday. The only thing shutting that line down is/has been Andersen. I think Matthews needs a little more help on his wings..

A strong possession driving line does not necessarily need to score on their own, but through the course of their play, they can force repeated icings, bad matchups, and tired lines that usually result in a higher chance for either scoring or drawing a penalty. The Bruins' depth lines do a good job setting the table for Bergeron's line.

In this game, Cassidy elected to keep sending out Bergeon and Krejci's lines because they were in a faceoff winning groove and kept hemming the Leafs in their own zone. If it wasn't for Andersen and some lucky blocks, they could have taken the series then and there.

Hard to tell in motion, but it looks to me like the starting point of Marnerís stick is in front of Krugís skate, which would make tripping him not very likely.

The camera cuts up at exactly the wrong moment, but it still strikes me that Marner's stick is between Krug's legs, and as he pulls it forward, he just happens to turn the blade behind Krug's right heel.  It certainly adds up when you look at how hard and fast Krug goes down.

If you don't mind, I will take this as an invitation to continue presenting formal arguments for this play.

Ladies and gentlemen of the forums, at Mr. Shrimp's prompting and out of respect for his keen eye, I have delved deeper into this video capturing the moment when Mr. Mitch Marner was waylaid from behind by Mr. Torey Krug, in which an ensuing scuffle resulted in Mr. Krug thrown to the ice.

Mr. Shrimp contends that while it appears that Mr. Marner hoisted Mr. Krug into the air by the strength of his lower body, he surmises that Mr. Marner aided Mr. Krug's fall by way using his stick behind the skate of Mr. Krug to lever him to the ice.

In my quest to uncover the truth of the matter, I have discovered that Mr. Shrimp is actually correct! [pause for gasps] There was indeed a trip! However, [pause for effect], it was not a trip by way of Mr. Marner's stick!

Exhibit A: At the beginning of the video clip referenced above, as I presented earlier, Mr. Marner's stick is held against the ice in front of Mr. Krug's right skate. As all know from basic kinematics, if a stick was used to trip a player, the direction of motion of the fall would be in the direction of the falling player's centre of gravity traversing over the point of contact with the stick. In layterms, a stick in front of a player's skate would yield a fall forward, while a stick behind the skate would yield a fall backwards. As evidenced by the video, Mr. Krug falls back and to the left.

Exhibit B: Note Mr. Krug's body position at the intiation of his fall. His right leg, ostensibly the one that would be tripped by Mr. Marner's stick, remains on the ice, while his left leg is the first indication that he has lost balance, leading to his fall back and to the left.

Exhibit C: Mr. Marner's moment of force is directed in a single direction: upwards. Mr. Krug had heretofore been draped across Mr. Marner's shoulders, right hand braced upon the back of Mr. Marner's head, but the bulk of his centre of gravity is outside of Mr. Marner's body column. Mr. Marner's movement should not have been able to throw Mr. Krug to the ice if it was a hoisting as I had first surmised.

So what truly caused Mr. Krug's fall?

Ladies and gentlemen of the forum, I refer you back to Exhibit B: Mr. Krug's left leg. At the beginning of the video, Mr. Krug's left leg is not astride Mr. Marner as I had first presumed, but rather his left hip is planted against Mr. Marner's right hip. The moment of force Mr. Marner generates does not lift Mr. Krug's centre of mass, but rather displaces Mr. Krug's left leg up, and the hinging of the hip and the leg continuing to travel above its normal plane of motion levers Mr. Krug's centre of gravity behind his remaining base of balance. Thus, Mr. Krug is thrown to the ice back and to the left.

You're right that it's not Marner's stick!  Fuller video angle here at around 0:06.  Looks a little slew-footy, but you're likely right that it's more Marner's upper leg that is pushing up on Krug's left leg/hip.  Either way, totally accidental and also totally intentional.
