Fehr confirms he was overnight in hospital. Leaving it to team to make announcement on his fate, but looks like he's done for reg. season.

Well, he had a good run. He blocked a shot with his hand, was seen wearing a cast on it this morning.

The upside is that our scoring forwards are quite well rested, thanks to Polak.

And Babcock for not putting someone on the box right away...

Anyway, this is the game that we all expect then to win... and oh, well...

Go Leafs Go! Lets make it 85.
A.K.A Gardiner51, Changed back to Kaberle15 now that he is retired.

Too bad about Fehr. The fourth was a full veteran line last night. Looks like Sosh or someone else is back in.

I understand the rationale behind this move.

He wanted a full bench initially, because 5 minutes is a long time. If we had to shift into 4-on-4, I'd really like Nylander or Marner available.

But no whistles came about. It was an unfortunate set of circumstances; it's no one's fault.

I don't know why he wouldn't have put Martin in the box though. Doesn't kill penalties, wouldn't have played 4-on-4. I mean he actually didn't even play another shift after the penalty.

Yes, Martin would've been my choice too.
I suspect he was going to do it later in the PK, but no whistles.

It sure does.  He was very good, IMO.

i'm not entirely sure it was on purpose.  when the penalty first happens polak thinks it's worth two and goes to the box but then of course is informed that he's not going to the box he's being kicked out of the game and goes down the tunnel.  So I at least think it's possible at that point they just missed that they should put someone in there or perhaps figured that it was best just to get the play back underway at that point and worry about putting someone in after a whistle..  I'm not sure there was any forethought about it.

I'm going to the game tonight, haven't seen one live in years.  Any tips on where to park close to the ACC, with a greater priority on convenience than price?
