Game Notes

FLA
•Reto Berra (0-1-0, 2.24 GAA, .907 Sv%) will likely start for the Panthers
•The Panthers lost to Buffalo last night by a score of 4-2. Reimer was pulled in the 2nd after giving up 4 goals on 22 shots
•Roberto Luongo is nearing a return to the line-up after being out since the beginning of March and could be the surprise starter
•On March 11th, Aaron Ekblad suffered his 3rd concussion in the past 14 months, and 4th concussion of his young hockey career. He was medically cleared to play in just 10 days, and the Panthers threw him back into the line-up as they were chasing a playoff spot. He played just 1 game and is now out of the line-up again with a "sore neck" and "headaches" which the team SWEARS isn't related to his concussion issues at all

TOR
•McElhinney (6-6-2, 2.61 GAA, .921 Sv%) will start for the Leafs
•Polak will return from his 2-game suspension
•Kasperi Kapanen will make his Leafs season debut playing on the 4th line. He has 43 points in 43 games in the AHL this season

Injuries

•Denis Malgin - Concussion - Questionable Tuesday
•Roberto Luongo - Lower Body - Questionable Tuesday
•Aaron Ekblad - "Not" Concussion - Week to week
      
•Nathan Horton - Back - Out indefinitely
•Joffrey Lupul - ¯\_(?)_/¯ - Out indefinitely
•Stephane Robidas - Old - Out indefinitely
•Eric Fehr - Hand - Out indefinitely
•Nikita Soshnikov - Undisclosed - Day to day
•Josh Leivo - Undisclosed - Day to day

With the 7-2 drubbing from the Panthers still fresh in their minds, I hope they respond appropriately tonight!

Looking forward to watching Kapanen skate on 4th line. Hopefully we never have to watch Ben Smith take another shift.

... poor Ekblad. That's just piss-poor management. When he's got a history like that you do a Crosby. Shut him down for a year. But eeeeveryone wants to keep their jobs so you put him back out there. Now his career's in jeopardy. They're one of the lucky ones and draft a number one defense-man and treat him THAT way? Man, I'm so glad we're a model franchise now. That kind of thing happens to Marnthewders, they wouldn't be back for a long, long while.

Hendricks is so smart. Yeah when you have 4 guys in their late teens. early twenties, and you average their ages you'll get ...surprise...20.5. That's some good math there Paul! They're young. I think most of us get that.

I'm expecting nothing less than a revenge from that 7-2 fiasco.

Go Leafs Go!

The way he wrote it, it kind of sounds like the average age of each of our 4 wingers is 20.5, somehow.  Like Connor Brown is 20.5 years old (on average).

I remember when Sundin used to roll his eyes in some of his interviews with this guy.   ::) just some embarrassingly stupid questions.

I hope so.  Tonight is guaranteed win night in my books, if the Leafs can't beat this team on a back to back, big issues may be in store the rest of the way.

Doop de doop: Just trying some configs out. Seems like we have a lot more flexibility without Martin.

Same as now, but better?
Komarov - Kadri - Brown
JvR - Bozak - Marner
Nylander - Matthews - Kapanen
Hyman - Boyle - Leivo

Traditional
Drivers: Matthews - Kadri - Marner
Sniiiiipe: JvR - Nylander - Kapanen
Alright: Leivo - Bozak - Brown
Hits: Komarov - Boyle - Hyman

Could be FUN
Highlights: Nylander - Matthews - Marner
Annoying: Komarov - Kadri - Soshnikov
What's Defense?: JvR - Bozak - Brown
Coarse Grit Finnish: Hyman - Boyle - Kapanen

Not-Too-Distant Future (maybe)
Rychel - Matthews - Marner
Leipsic - Kadri - Griffith
Timashov - Nylander - Kapanen
Soshnikov/Leivo - Brooks - Hyman
