The weirdest thing with Martin; I watched 95% of the games Babcock coached the Red Wings.  They never iced a player like him.  Always went with guys that could skate.  Martin has a real tough time skating, he can't sharply turn, he has trouble starting his motion; he is an ankle bender.  Then Mike comes over to the leafs and insists on playing a guy that can't skate or stick handle.  It confuses the heck out of me.

TeamAnalytics last night had a shot. Didn’t play great, and had to eke out a win on goaltending. TeamOldSchool gets the call tonight to reassert their place on the team, if they can.

Orlov with two straight cross checks to Matthews, no call.  Leafs get cross checked rather often, without a call.

Nylander got faked out twice on the PP here.  Had the puck on the half boards with Komarov in front.  Looked like he could feed Leo, but the D was just baiting him. Both times it got broke up and cleared.  Have to recognize after the first time that you need to move the puck otherwise.

Marner still refuses to shoot.

I know you can’t wrap Matthews in cotton wool, but if they let guys like Orlov absolutely mug him like that he will start to break down ala Crosby.

If you’re going to dress Martin, Orlov’s face should look like ground beef right now.

So many teams with multiple goalies they can role through, and the Leafs have to rely on Curtis McElhinney on back to back nights.  That is poor roster management.  CM is another beer league player.

Martin and CM could both go join a local adult rec league and they wouldn't much improve.

Martin does absolutely nothing to prevent this stuff.   Orlov’s job is to stop Matthews not worry about the 1:35 a game he might be on the ice with Martin.

Just noticed the ads on the boards are all purple. Wish it were like that every night, it's much less distracting. White would be even better.
