Game Notes

TOR
•Frederik Andersen will start for the Leafs

WSH
•Braden Holtby will start for the Capitals
•The Capitals made a couple of strategic changes to their line-up in Game 4: Namely bumping Tom Wilson to the 3rd line (and in the process cutting the 4th line's minutes down quite a bit) and using the Orlov-Niskanen pairing up against the Matthews lines. Both changes were quite effective

•Joffrey Lupul - ¯\_(?)_/¯ - Out indefinitely
•Stephane Robidas - Old - Out indefinitely
•Roman Polak - Knee - Out indefinitely
•Eric Fehr - Hand - Out indefinitely
•Nikita Soshnikov - Undisclosed - Day to day
•Josh Leivo - Undisclosed - Day to day
      
•Karl Alzner - Upper Body - Questionable Friday

I miss playing against Karl Alzner.

Trotz hard matching Orlov-Niskanen to Matthews means Bozak's line really needs to step up again, a la game 1, if the Leafs want to push this series.

There were some Leafs fans out there who wanted to sign Alzner this offseason. I was hoping this playoff series would show the flaws in his game and convince them otherwise. I guess Nate Schmidt outplaying him probably does that in a roundabout way.

Leafs lost games 1 and 4 due to individual mistakes. They are outplaying the Caps.

Lets win game 5 Boys.  Go Leafs Go!!!

I really hope the Leafs can batten down the hatches in the first 10 minutes. If they can do that, I think they win this one.

Were those the same fans that think we need more stay at home shutdown D?

Hoping that...

1. Nylander and Gardiner continue to be brilliant,

2. Rielly, Hunwick, Hyman, Kapanen, Boyle keep up the good play,

3. Kadri, Komarov, Brown, Carrick, and Andersen have big bounce back games,

4. Matthews finds his away around the hard match and takes over, and

5. Bozak, JvR, and Marner finally get something going 5v5, because if 4 doesn't happen we'll need em to pull this one out.

For some reason it doesn't feel like a game night to me.  I don't know what's wrong.

It's a Friday.  They don't play many Friday night games.

to win the series they probably have to win tonight...that'll give them two games to figure out how to eliminate a team.
