Game Notes

NSH
•Rinne (27-8-3, 2.32 GAA, .926 Sv%) will likely start for the Predators
•Nashville is 2nd in their division in points, just 2 behind Winnipeg despite playing 3 less games. They're 9-1-1 in their last 11 games. They've scored 5 goals in each of their past 3 games
•One bright spot: their highest scoring forward, Filip Forsberg, is in the middle of a 3-game suspension for interference
•Some not bright spots (for us): Subban has 23 points in his last 22 games, Kevin Fiala has 9 points in his last 9 games, Arvidsson has 9 points in his last 8 games, and Johansen has 7 points in his last 6 games

TOR
•Andersen (25-15-4, 2.66 GAA, .921 Sv%) will likely start for the Leafs
•Andersen of course left Monday's game in the 2nd period after taking a skate to the head. He said he had some whiplash symptoms and a sore jaw, but feels like he'll be able to play
•No line-up changes were made at practice yesterday

Injuries

                                                                 
      
•Nathan Horton - Back - Out indefinitely
•Joffrey Lupul - Actually Injured - Out indefinitely
•Nikita Soshnikov - Groin - Injured Reserve
•Frederik Andersen - Head - Probable Wednesday

I am guessing I would take an Ellis contract over a Karlsson or Doughty contract.

Kapanen has revolutionized the 4th line but he's too good to stay there long.

It would be interesting to see what he could on with Matthews and Nylander. Or, if JVR is traded, he could step in there.

I liked Babs playing Matthews with the 4th line but please no Komarov. I'd sooner see him promote Kap and put Marner with him for the extra shift.
Polak was pretty good tonight with Dermott. Kid looks good for sure. Kaps/Dermott are not going anywhere unless it's temporary to make room for Sosh. Both are keepers.
Preds are a really good team. Love how their D pinch all the time.

So...was that a dive by Subban in the third? He looks totally fine now. Didn't even miss a shift.
I don't think he dove but if he did, it worked. The refs shouldn't have blown it dead tho, the Leafs had the puck.

Especially liked Kapanen out there, his speed, skill, and penalty-killing.  He's a keeper, and one to improve even more over time.

Overall, despite Nashville leaning heavily on the Leafs in the third with Freddy dumbfounding the Predators again and again, this was a satisfactory win, and the Leafs showed their mettle in going head-to-head against one of the NHL's big, tough, & best teams.

A good test.  Important win.  Good psychological & confidence booster.

Roman Josi was also drafted with a pick (38th in 2008) that had actually originally belonged to the Leafs.  The Leafs sent that pick to Arizona in the Yanic Perreault trade, and Arizona later sent the pick to Nashville, who selected Josi.

The Weber pick was never the Leafs though. If Nashville received that for the belfour signing that was just a new pick the league created not the Leafs pick they had to give up for signing him.

Wheee...

Roman Josi was also drafted with a pick (38th in 2008) that had actually originally belonged to the Leafs.  The Leafs sent that pick to Arizona in the Yanic Perreault trade, and Arizona later sent the pick to Nashville, who selected Josi.

The Weber pick was never the Leafs though. If Nashville received that for the belfour signing that was just a new pick the league created not the Leafs pick they had to give up for signing him.

Yes, I know.  That's why I said the Josi pick "had actually originally belonged to the Leafs".

He's the team's MVP this year, hands down.

Agreed and by some distance too.

Matthews' goals per game this season is 4th in the league, which is a pretty impressive accomplishment. I agree I'd give Andersen the nod there but Mats is right behind him still to me.

Yeah, Matthews has been immense, although I’m not sure the team could handle an extended absence from Andersen.

We haven’t had a goalie even close to him since The Eagle.
