Alex Lyon stops 94-95 shots in this game (and LOSES!!!!).  To bad he is property of Phili


The guy that stopped 94 of 95 won, the other dude stopped 51 of 53 and lost.
And that's why I was wondering why LuncheonMeat put loses in there.

I know you've all been waiting for my opinion, so wait no more:

1.  You play your best players when the game is on the line.  They're the ones that have earned it all year, and you count on them to get up.  DeBrusk is one of Boston's best forwards, he's a second line player that plays those minutes.  The Leafs also have players his age, and younger, that played a lot more the DeBrusk did/does.

2.  I think the Kadri suspension is where this series got decided.  That suspension really hurt the lineup.

3.  The Leafs counted on Andersen far too many times this year, and their luck ran out there.

4.  Gardiner had a bad game, oh well.  He's a 50 point defenseman this year, and one of the key guys that got this team into the playoffs.  If the Leafs could replay that period, I'm pretty sure they'd play Gardiner again in those minutes.

5.  I don't consider last night's game to be indicative of anything in particular, I'm more trying to look at the series overall.  The 7 game series did show me that Matthews and Nylander have a fair bit of work to do to earn $10-$11 mil and $6-$7 mil on my Leafs team.  Marner and Marleau played well. The newer kids played pretty darn well, all things considered.

6.  Young team, didn't get it done, not really surprised.  I'm looking forward to an interesting off-season.

It pains me to say it but I agree with everything that Frank wrote.

Do your duty and delete his post, and we'll all pretend you didn't write that.

If the Leafs D can continue to initiate passes rather than using the boards and the forwards keep moving on, and Andersen excels again -- basically replicating the good works they all put in for Games 5 & 6 -- even with Boston having the line change advantage, the Leafs should be able to eke out the win.

No expectations but for the sake of breaking the losing-to-Boston-in the -playoffs-again 'curse', it would do well for Toronto to emerge victorious.


Some pretty good observations here:

Assuming you consider a paywall good observations.

Our boy barney_rebel finished the Boston Marathon in 3:24:14...

He stinks, dude.  :-X

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I might welcome Matt Martin back in the lineup for game 3.  :-\

I'll be rooting for your Flyers in the first round.  A threepeat is good for nobody outside of Pittsburgh.

Same... can't see Philly taking this one though.

Claude Giroux would like to speak with you (line 2).

Ugh, butterflies already. Go Leafs!! Please, oh please don't let me down. I can hardly remember what it feels like to see them head to the second round, but I'm ready to give it a try!

Give me Tampa. I think the Leafs' speed can beat the Lightning, whereas the Bruins seem to be able to suffocate that speed to a frustrating degree.

A loss to Arizona last night means that Tampa is now only 2 points ahead of Boston with the Bruins having 2 games in hand. The two teams play each other twice still and those games will probably decide who we play in the 1st round.

I'm becoming more comfortable with the idea of Tampa in the first round.

I don't think it's unreasonable that JVR gets $6.5-7x7. I would bet he also signs with a US-based team. It will be a shame to see him go but, honestly, we're going to need his $$$ to sign Tavares.  :P

You'll notice I'm no longer making "Haha, he's old" jokes.

I fail to see what your feelings about Highlander have to do with this.
Did I miss something when I was taking my Geritol?

Nope, nothing going on here.  Hey is that the the theme song to Matlock I hear?

Mannix, actually.

The Leafs 4th line at the beginning of the season had Matt Martin and Eric Fehr on it.

That is a solid point! I'm thankful that Komarov and Kapanen have been swapped.

As of last night, Bob McKenzie said he thinks Glendening rumors to Toronto are dead based on the Wings asking price and Leafs won't offer up a higher pick.  Rumor is Leafs offered a 5th rounder.

If Lou isn't completely put off by the media getting wind of the deal - especially specifics of the deal - I imagine they'll revisit it closer to the deadline. That being said, with the amount of out there, I think it's basically dead.

I think it was Friedman who mentioned this the other day. That if a Lou trade gets leaked, it probably means the deal is already dead.

Perhaps the Wings could use Leivo?
