Game Notes

TOR
•Andersen (7-5-0, 3.26 GAA, .901 Sv%) will likely start for the Leafs
•Expect some line-up fiddling again with the Leafs, as we might even see a Leivo or Carrick make an appearance again. We'll have to wait for the morning skate to know more though

STL
•Jake Allen (7-3-1, 2.34 GAA, .923 Sv%) will likely start for the Blues
•St. Louis is having a very good season: they're currently tied for 2nd in points and are 14th in GF/GP and 2nd in GA/GP
•One area of concern for St. Louis has been speciality teams: they are bottom-10 in both PP% and PK%
•Jaden Schwartz is 6th in the league in scoring with 17 points in 14 games, while Pietrangelo is tied for 1st among defencemen with 13 points in 14 games
•The Schenn-for-Lehtera trade has worked out well for the Blues so far, Schenn has 11 points in 14 games and seems to have moved back to the centre position full-time

Injuries

•Nathan Horton - Back - Out indefinitely
•Joffrey Lupul - Actually Injured - Out indefinitely
      
•Carter Hutton - Personal - Questionable Saturday
•Patrick Berglund - Shoulder - Injured Reserve
•Robby Fabbri - Knee - Injured Reserve
•Jay Bouwmeester - Ankle - Injured Reserve
•Zach Sanford - Shoulder - Injured Reserve

Last memory of Blues:  getting absolutely tarasenkoed in OT.

Based the morning skate, looks like Carrick is in, but the forwards haven't changed much.

And thus began the Great Weaning...

Rielly-Hainsey
Gardiner-Carrick
Borgman-Zaitsev

We didn't really play these pairings the last time it was reported for practice.
It was
44-2 | 51-22 | 55-8

But I think it goes better the way it's written up for practice if Babcock is willing to let Rielly and Gardiner's pairings split the harder matchups and not try to shelter Borgman and Zaitsev so much. Zaitsev has to start making D-to-D passes on the buildup, or maybe trusting his legs a bit more, rather than lobbing ugly soft 'passes' north to nobody in particular.

Polak has to be jettisoned off this team. I know he's great for gifs, maybe he can be a team mascot or something. I just don't want him playing.

The Leafs have really struggled with the special teams balance over the last 5-6 games.  Seems like they can't draw a penalty.

Bozak won't endear himself to a coach that has him in the doghouse with penalties like that.

It wasn't a very smart penalty to take!  I'd bench him a few shifts for it!

Another game where the only line that isn't getting hemmed in is the Matthews line.
