Game Notes

TOR
•Andersen (6-5-0, 3.46 GAA, .896 Sv%) will likely start for the Leafs
•Babcock finally pulled the trigger and did some shuffling with the Leafs line-up. Leivo will be with Kadri and Komarov, a trio that was very successful in their brief time together last season. Marleau was moved to the 3C spot while Bozak was bumped down to 4C
•On defence Connor Carrick has re-entered the Leafs line-up and will play alongside Gardiner. The two were a regular pairing last season

ANA
•John Gibson (5-3-1, 2.80 GAA, .921 Sv%) will likely start for the Ducks
•Gibson did take a shot where the sun doesn't shine at practice yesterday and appeared to be in a fair amount of pain, but he's expected to be fine
•Nick "infinitely inferior to William Nylander" Ritchie missed practice yesterday for an undisclosed reason
•The Ducks will be missing Getzlaf for a little while after he took a puck to the face during their game on Sunday
•Sami Vatanen returned to the Ducks line-up on Saturday but missed their Sunday game. It's expected that was for conditioning reasons so he'll likely be in tonight
•In Vatanen's absence on Sunday Korbinian Holzer skated alongside Hampus Lindholm on Anaheim's top pairing. That likely has nothing to do with tonight's game but I just found it so funny. Good one Randy!

Injuries

•Nathan Horton - Back - Out indefinitely
•Joffrey Lupul - Actually Injured - Out indefinitely
      
•John Gibson - Groin - Questionable Wednesday
•Nick Ritchie - Undisclosed - Questionable Wednesday
•Ryan Getzlaf - Face - Injured Reserve
•Kevin Bieksa - Hand - Injured Reserve
•Cam Fowler - Knee - Injured Reserve
•Patrick Eaves - Illness - Injured Reserve
•Ryan Kesler - Hip - Injured Reserve

I would seriously love to know what Martin would have to do to get benched. Like, if he took the puck, skated back in his own zone and wired a slapshot passed Andersen, would he even be scratched the following game?

On a related note, Kapanen-Bozak-Marner would be a pretty sweet 4th line...

If you put Kapanen in for Martin you could argue we basically have one 1st line and three 2nd lines.

And due to World Series Game 7 I intend to stay awake all night tonight and probably flick between the two games. Work tomorrow should be fun...

Raps game at 9pm too... Not sure if my wife will be happy if I'm streaming all three at once... she won't have any bandwidth left for Netflix (if there's enough for the three in the first place!)

Rielly-Hainsey
Gardiner-Carrick
Borgman-Zaitsev

I'm pretty ecstatic about this group and the pairings. Question marks about the 3rd pair, but not foregone conclusions of disaster like the previous year. Gardiner will be seeing some PK time (back half and on the fly, most likely).

There's a cynical part of me that thinks this is a bit of a Babcock-pouting lineup; where the analytics team has been pushing for him to move on from Polak/grinders.

He tried it for a bit in the first few games and didn't like enough about it to ask for Polak back.

Now that things have jumped the rails a bit, he's like, okaaaaay let's try it your way for a bit and lines it up with the Western road trip against the gaunlet of Anaheim and LA, similar to the way Corrado was set up to fail against Pittsburgh after 0 games to get into a rhythm.

If the succession plan is still that Dubas ascends to the GM chair in the next couple years, will be interesting to see how things play out.

Bieksa is out tonight as well. So with no one reigning down fists on Leaf faces, perhaps Martin can get a maintenance day? Please?

I was thinking to myself about how if we could see a player's ratings like in EA Sports NHL video games that Martin would be literally 1/2 of all his teammates. I was wrong. I looked up EA's players rankings and Martin is scored at 77, which is higher then Moore, Fehr, Smith, Rychel, Soshnikov, Levio and Kapanen.

I think I found Babcock's coaching handbook... "but.. but.. EA Sports says..."
