I am shamelessly swiping this from Reddit but someone there pointed out that last night JVR scored his 34th goal of the season, after which #34 scored his 29th goal of the season, after which #29 scored his 16th goal of the season, after which #16 scored.

To bring it full circle, Marner's goal was his 20th of the season and after that Gardiner scored his 5th goal. 20+5 = JVR's jersey number.

JVR and Komarov, I'm fine with them walking, Bozak, if he could come back on the cheap would be an ideal #4 center in my opinion.  Good on the faceoff, can move up and play PP minutes and is money in the shootout (which the Leafs have excelled at this season for a bunch of valuable extra points)

There were a lot of good defencemen playing on the other side last night, but to me Rielly looked like the best one on the ice.

Get that guy a legit partner and look out.
yep Rielly is starting to round out his game in a very nice way. Dermot starting to look like the real deal.  Hopefully Lilypad will turn out to be the same.

I'm really impressed with Dermott.  He looks like a bonafide top pair guy with some of his play.  Hopefully Lilly can be as good or better, Leafs D would be good to go for a few years.

Let's have some fun.  So Leafs currently have 95 points with 8 left to play.  I've filled in games where I think Leafs *should* win, and thrown in a potential loss and OT loss to boot:

Provided the Leafs play like I believe they can, and with games against lo-lights like Buffalo, Montreal and the Islanders, we could see a 6-1-1 final 8 games which would give the Leafs 108 points on the year.

Boston currently has 100 points with 10 left to play.  Their schedule is:
@ Dallas
@ Minnesota
@ Winnipeg
Tampa Bay
@Tampa Bay

Can Boston go 3-6-1 to finish behind the Leafs?  Discuss.


With the Leafs so solidly in the playoffs, I feel like nobody is looking ahead at this chunk, cause really it doesn't matter at this point.  Leafs have a longshot of passing the Bruins for 2nd, provided that Tampa beats Boston in the 2 head to heads they have, and the Leafs get on a roll.

HM : Matthews

Those were 2 interesting games.  As said, the Leafs didn't just win 5 of the 6 periods, they dominated them.

The sixth, unfortunately, was a textbook example of dedomination.
At least we know they can play with the best teams in the league.  I think this is going to be one confident bunch going into the playoffs.

This has been one hell of a response game after that Tampa debacle

I'm thinking JVR might make some money on July 1

Probably.  I just hope it's not the Leafs money.  Doubt he'll ever hit over 30 again. 

Not many other teams can give him such a cushy sheltered and PP focused role.
Hopefully Oilers give him 7 years at 8 million per

Save us Auston

Any bets on FLA getting in?

It sure looks like they will. Especially with New Jersey struggling. Tampa-Florida 1st round match-up would be fun.

Does that mean Leafs get Florida second round after we punt the Bruins out in 5 games?


Garbage loss.

They look so pensive trying to gain the zone. Man they didn't deserve to win this at all.
Well the Leafs totally dominated the first 2 periods so why was Tampa more deserving?  Freddie looked like October Freddie on a couple of goals too. Outshot Tampa but still lose

Rielly stinks
