Game Notes

TOR
•Frederik Andersen (33-16-14, 2.67 GAA, .918 Sv%) will start for the Leafs
•In his career Andersen is 17-9 in the playoffs with a .916 Sv%. He posted a .947 Sv% for the Ducks in 5 starts last year
•Nikita Zaitsev is confirmed to miss at least game 1 for the Leafs. Martin Marincin will suit up in his place. This will be Marincin's first game since March 14th

WSH
•Braden Holtby (42-13-6, 2.07 GAA, .925 Sv%) will start for the Capitals
•Holtby's career playoff save percentage is a ridiculous .937. Despite that he's only 22-24 in the post-season. Per @DimFilipovic, goalies who have played versus Holtby have put up a .932 Sv% against the Caps in the playoffs
•For what it's worth, in 2 appearances against the Leafs this season Holtby has just a .844 Sv% and 5.39 GAA
•John Carlson missed the last 4 games of Washington's season with a lower body injury. His return would bolster an already very impressive Caps blueline

Injuries

•Nathan Horton - Back - Out indefinitely
•Joffrey Lupul - ¯\_(?)_/¯ - Out indefinitely
•Stephane Robidas - Old - Out indefinitely
•Eric Fehr - Hand - Out indefinitely
•Nikita Soshnikov - Undisclosed - Day to day
•Josh Leivo - Undisclosed - Day to day
•Nikita Zaitsev - Upper Body - Out Thursday
      
•Brett Connolly - Illness - Probable Thursday
•John Carlson - Lower Body - Probable Thursday

Latest BluePrint: JVR/the push that got us here. JVR had a great playoff in 2013. His big body and cool demeanor are real assets. I had forgotten his rookie year he went to the final with Philadelphia. Naz, Bozie, Boyler, Reills, Gards, and perhaps Leo have all been there as well. And speaking of a big body with cool demeanor, your 2017 Calder Trophy winner: Awesome Matthews.

Still a ways to go in this one. Hope the Leafs keep taking it to them.

I'm pretty confident of that.  Not to say that they're going to win this one.  But they aren't going to be cowed.

That's certainly what I thought too.  But one replay kind of showed that Polak first touched the puck which might have  affected Brown's timing a bit.

One thing I didn't hear from any commentator was that (Again!) Babcock played the fourth line right after the goal and the play was quickly in the Leafs' end and Boyle took a soft penalty in which he wasn't moving his feet.   It is really disconcerting that he plays the fourth line after a Leafs goal.

It's obviously effective but I always feel as though there's something a little wrong about the way Ovechkin goes so heavy into the corners on the forecheck when he's almost never working hard enough defensively to be on the receiving end of things.

The second goal by Washington was certainly a fluke but Marincin has to be stronger on that play.  He didn't do anything to clear Williams from the front of the net.

And Martin is supposedly the steady team veteran but that penalty by him was such a bad instinctive selfish play.  If Babcock has any concept of 'accountability' he would limit the ice time of the 4th line and focus on playing the top young players more. (And I am not necessarily talking about Hyman).

Someone please explain to me why goalies fall to their knees before the shot...especially a shot from that bad of an angle. That OT goal should never have happened!
Does anyone not play like Brodeur anymore?
He would read the shot first.

Would hope Babcock was writing a "note to self" to this effect when he was hanging around on the bench after it went in...

Also: Matthews doesn't need to touch the puck that often to be dangerous, but he does need to touch it, at some point... and Hyman leading the charge into the Washington zone isn't producing that result.

It's exhilarating being in the playoffs again. Man I miss this feeling.

Tough luck meeting the caps in the first round, but this team is so damn likeable, I'm not gonna be heartbroken if we don't make it out of this round.

I could easily see this team stealing a game or two in this series, and wouldn't be shocked if they won it.

Onward and upwards.

Leafs almost caught the Caps napping and managed to stay right with them throughout the game. I was surprised by the OT winner, didn't look like Freddie left much room on the glove side for that puck to go in. Happy to see Marner get his 1st playoff goal, getting the young guys this type of experience now will pay off for the team in the coming years. All in all the Leafs played a pretty good game, looking forward to Game 2.

GO LEAFS GO!

Oh, for sure.  Hey, I'm disappointed, but any prior (or future) year I'd be steaming and pissed off for a couple of days.  This feels like a regular season OT loss for me.  I have no big expectations from this series.  If they advance, that's fantastic.  If they're eliminated, that's okay.

Next year and beyond, I won't be feeling that way, I assure you.

Hoping for more of the same in Game 2.

Yes, that was a blown 2-0 lead and a disappointing ending on a shot that maybe should've been saved.... but damn that was fun. They're a year ahead of schedule and just took the best team in hockey to playoff OT. The best team in hockey also got incredibly lucky on both of those goals.

The Leafs will likely never win this series, but if they play them like that every game, I'm down. Caps are stacked, it'll be our turn soon.

Tough to lose on that goal, and if they do have hopes of winning the series, it feels like that game was one they shouldn't have let slip away. But if they play like that all series, then they'll be in it!

If the caps play in game 1 continues throughout the series I think the Leafs have a chance to win possibly 2 or 3 games, upset is still definitely possible.   

Leafs looked like the hungrier and better coached team unfortunately with Zaitsev's injury Babcock is forced to turn to guys like Marincin which puts so much pressure on the rest of the D and forwards.

This series is far from over.

Weak OT goal but there was more then 1 mistake on the play. Martin going to the slot instead of turning up the boards. Marincin with a weak clearing attempt. Why not hammer it around the way you're facing or even try skating it behind the net.
Fact is though without Andersen this game is long over before OT. He was unreal. Team played great overall so I'm not too disappointed. It was a great learning experience. They know what to expect now and know they can compete with these guys. On to the next!

Didn't notice him much outside the ot goal which I guess they say is a good thing.  Was really surprised they didn't pick up a vet D man, could have really helped.  Not sure if they can do it now but why not call up Olesky,  risky maybe but he did play 11 games this season with the Pens.

Meh.  One goal was essentially a 5/3 (it had just expired) and the other two had aromas to them.  A loss is a loss but overall I thought we were the better team over the first 2 periods.

x2 and that's exactly what McLennan says here, but all O'Neill does is B about Andersen. It's like he was on his iPhone during minutes 20-60. The last half of that game was almost open season on Freddie. It would have to be to get to 40 shots after that disaster of a first for the Caps. A 5-on-3 goal and one where the Caps had been blitzing for several minutes. Many top-notch glove and blocker saves. I've noticed Freddie's 6'4" frame tends to fatigue a bit if he has to make multiple high-quality stops in a few minutes. Other than that, the dude's been golden for almost two months. Once again, he gives up two or less in regulation. Does he get that one in overtime if he possesses a hybrid standup style and stays on his skates? Sure, but he doesn't, so top corner will go in from there. Maybe some fatigue there as well, shots were 6-1 Caps in O/T I believe.

Agreed Disco, I don't understand starting out on your knees and keeping the top of the net open when you are 6'4".  If Freddie was on his feet for that rush there is no way in hell that puck goes in. However not knocking him, he is our best goaltender in forever. And we would never have been in OT without his amazing stops beforehand.

He was standing up before the shot was taken and only started to go down as the puck was going toward him.

On a side note Rielly was also brutal on the OT goal with a weak pinch in the neutral zone and not winning that battle and then a very weak play on Wilson just before he scored.
