Stop pretending that you aren't Mark Masters. We know that you're Mark Masters.

That's not possible. He and I have been in the same room at the same time, and people have seen both of us.

Also, I spell my name with a C. Hence, the disagreement.

His initials are M and M.  How can he be bad?

Well, he does spell his first name the wrong way. I've discussed this with him on a few occasions, but he seems unwilling to change.

Mark Masters just said that Andersen and Ward start tonight.

He's a trustworthy fellow, that Mark Masters.

The were outclassed in the 1st, even in the 2nd IMO.

Playing even with one of the bottom 5 teams in the league in an awfully low bar to measure from.

The question is whether they deserved even a point in tonight's game.  I think they certainly did.  I didn't claim that it's some kind of landmark achievement.

And, if they best they can do through 40 minutes is play even with a bottom 5 team, they didn't deserve it.

I disagree.  Bjugstad's first goal was pure luck, and the Leafs played a dominant 3rd period.  Rielly got robbed by the post a couple of times.

The way they played the first 40 minutes, they should have been down 3 or 4 - and, against a better team, they would have been. They didn't earn the point tonight. It was not at all deserved. They gained it because they were playing a bad team.

Enh. The way the Leafs' played most of the night, they probably didn't even deserve the single point, never mind both.

Generally speaking, I understand that the ref will call the retaliation, but the guy was nailed twice in thirty seconds. If the refs call either one they defuse the situation and Kadri doesn't lose it.

Agreed. And, it's not like either were particularly subtle crosschecks, either.

Itís reminiscent of the early games, coupled with better defensive structure and breakouts.

Yup. Forwards are coming back/staying deeper the zone, and it's working out pretty nicely.

Iíll co-sign this. Dictate your game. Make them play your way.

Wonder if the way they've played since Babs changed his strategy this period will have any impact on his thinking going forward. It'll be a track meet some nights, but that's usually going to be in the Leafs' favour.

Roll the lines, short shifts, keep guys fresh so they can use their speed effectively and . . . boom.

I don't understand why it keeps happening. Is it Babcock's fault for not getting them ready or is it the players. They are professionals. If they don't want to come out ready to play then maybe some of them need to see the game from the press box.

Watching the way they're starting to take control here in the 3rd, I'm leaning towards it being too much line-match and assignments, not enough rolling over the lines and letting the guys just play their game. They could just be starting the games overthinking, trying to feel their way in instead of just playing.

We need Romanuk bingo:

Knifes it in
Smeagols it

Smeagol is Hughson.

Just testing you weren't going to claim bingo......

I take bingo very seriously.

Not once, but twice.  That's how he described the warm-up, in what I bet was a world first.

Oh, he's using like he learned it from his word of the day calendar, but he's using it correctly.
