What is that noise from the crowd? It's like annoying bells or something.

Why does Babcock insist on playing the 4th line after a Leafs goal?  It was a terrific play by Gardiner and JVR and then the Leafs lost the momentum with the play in their end for the next 30 seconds.  Boyle skates like a tractor and Martin is slightly worse with the puck.

Caps roll 4 lines Leafs have to as well. When's a good time to have them out?

gotta roll the lines, way too early to shorten the bench

In theory, it's so that the fourth line can work on shutting down the push back by the other team.  As a coach myself, I'd always come back with my top line to counter their push back.

Agreed with that principle but here the goal was right after a power play.  There isn' t any benefit putting Martin  and Boyle out there and in fact Boyle took that penalty in the last game right after the Leafs goal which helped to change the momentum in that game IMHO.

And the 4th line can miss a rotation or two and arguably it won't affect a thing especially in the playoffs.

Anyways the Leafs are up by a goal so ...  no harm.

Gardiner is a treat to watch. Beauty of a shot by JvR.

OV.  Hyman should have just gotten out of the way.

Well, that'll happen when you leave one the best ever goal-scorers alone. Not blaming him, but really have no idea what Boyle was doing on that play.

Awful penalty by Marincin.  And Ove scores on a soft play by Polak.  The Leafs lack of depth on defence is hurting them.
