I get the feeling this is going to be a frustrating season.

Will it? #LiljegrentheLeaf

A couple of bad breaks and good plays by the Red Wings put us down 2-0, but the young Leafs have been bringing the game to the Red Wings since.

Great shifts and extended puck possession by Matthews and Marner on consecutive shifts.

Score could be quite different if Marner didn't whiff on the open net, or if Zaitsev's stick didn't explode on his one timer.

If ifs and buts were candies and nuts,... well you know the rest.

What you see as "a couple of bad breaks" I see as a disappointing continuation of this team's habit from last year of giving up an early goal. We did it against Montreal the other night with Andersen in net and he's back in tonight and we did it again.

Deja vu.

Oh boy that was dandy.

That's just it -it doesn't always have to be a pretty 5 way passing play with a tap in at the end. A guy driving the net, throw the puck in there, and all the goals count the same.

Hunwick will be glad that happened in preseason.

I've been harping on Hyman's inability to pass this preseason, but he has stepped it up this game. He's starting to find his linemates on the doorstep.

Great drive by Matthews and plucky goal for Hyman to get.

See this is the frustration, play pretty well, pretty much dominate at times, get deservedly back in the game then make some kind of oops to throw it away.

Still the Hyman Matthews pairing looks like being fun to watch with Nylander too
I Saw Jay McClement Score.

We've turned over almost half of the roster and the goalie. It's hard for me to see this as a continuation of last year's habit of giving up an early goal, especially since the goals were great setups.

And, well, pre-season.

Second time we've seen Nylander pull off that type of tip this season.

Woohoo! Quite a skilled shot from Laich on that angle too.
