Hoping for another win. Matthews needs to pick it up a bit just doesn't seem himself the last couple weeks. Not sure if he's playing with a small injury, long season taking it's toll etc but he needs to get another jump. Would help if Babcock would change the lines up to try and get him out of it but wishful thinking. Anyway another 2 big points so hopefully we pull it out. Looking at the standings if we finish with the second wild card going to be a quick exit. I'm hoping they sneak into third place in the division and avoid Washington who looks like they will be the top seed. Still a ways to go though anything can happen.

I think I speak for everyone when saying you are very appreciated Mr CtB. You're a legend. You could very well be:
1. You are the actual Carlton the Bear at Leaf games.
2. You are a sentient 1000lb grizzly who can type and grew up a Leaf booster.
3. Your name is Carlton and you're a large hairy man that goes to the Tool Box.
4. You are Alfonso Ribiero and your nick on Fresh Prince was bear.

I don't know if they've mentioned it (watching on mute), but the way the puck is bouncing, I'd guess the ice is in bad shape.

Absolutely, if JVR had a consistent forecheck game it would be awesome. That first goal was JVR heavy on the body and Marner with the snipe. A deadly combination. And sometimes it's Marner with the steal and pass with JVR/Bozak with the snipe.

Ottawa passes Montreal tonight for first in the Atlantic. If we can catch Boston for third we'd play Montreal in the first round... wouldn't that be something!

Circle March 20 on the calendar: we've got Boston at home in the pivotal 4-pt game (if it finishes in regulation of course). First up in Florida, Tampa and then Chicago at home on Saturday.
