Not for the Leafs, it's Ottawa and Montreal tonight.

McGregor pops in the scramble rebound and jump ahead 2-0.
Dermott with the keep-in at the line and shot on goal to cause the scramble.

Senators wiped out the Habs last night, so this is... rock paper scissors?

Good to see Rasanen has recovered from Friday, and Dermott from the flu.

Moore slams home a bump pass on the PP from Marchment at the post and Liljegren with the dangles down the half wall.

Not sure what level of lineup the sens are running, but the baby Leafs are winning races to every puck, popping short passes into open ice for linemates coming in with speed, and playing with really good structure in transition and forcing play into the OZ.

Gordeev, while not fast, is quite smooth and patient.
Liljegren is as advertised, but better defensively than I've heard.
Timashov is pretty wily, and with Grundstrom on the opposite wing, they are carving into the zone with regularity.
Ian Scott between the pipes for the first half, and looks more steady than Bibeau.

Moore - Dupuy - Bracco is such a Dubas line.

A little late, but it looks like Korostelev (2015 7th rd) is in for Coskey? I hope he gets an AHL deal.

I'm liking Moore's gumption and smarts, but his strength (lack thereof) is holding him back from making the plays he wants to.

Speaking of strength, earlier in the period, Dermott upended his (larger) man with a hip check and lift.

And that's as much of the game that I can watch today. If we lose, sorry.

Wait, don't go Herman. You're the only one here.
