Sportsnet coverage is so bad. Between Romanuk's mistakes and Millen's useless observations I can't take it. 

Example from Millen, Arizona scored on the Moore phantom penalty and Millen says "a couple of costly penalties by Moore tonight!" Well they only scored on one of the 2 so how were both costly Greg?

Get ready, you get to do it all over again tomorrow from the Mile High Can.

Also both penalties were pretty awful.  Yet another game where the Leafs are the considerably better team and take a bunch of penalties because of reasons.

Game report:

Lied when I said there would be 8,000 Matthews Jerseys at the game, I counted 7,999.  Had a great time at the Gila Monster Arena. It was proceeded by some sake bombs and sashimi across from the arena.
Started with a brief tribute to Johnny Bower, they called for a moment of silence and out of the quiet, a voice high up rang out "We love you Johnny",  bringing a tear to everyone. Just after a guy passed me with a Bower sweater on, signed on the back by Mr. Bower himself. Nice!

What to say, an exciting fast game with the wild first period, so I will point out a few things other than the obvious; Matthews, Nylander and Marner are all fantastic and will only get better over the years.  Who impressed otherwise;  Hainey, Marleau, Borgman (to me outside of his penalty played an impressive solid game, great freebie pickup, he has so much room to improve).  Polak especially in the third was a rock, snuffing players out along the boards and played a really solid game overall (which was a surprise). Reilly seemed invisible which was a good thing compared to Jake Gardner.  I like Jake, I really do, but last night he was atrocious, continually making gaffes. The guy next to me said Jake was the most talented worst player he has ever seen. Last night it was true.  Perhaps it time to package him up and ship him out or pray for a reversal of his penchant for huge defensive lapses.   Kadri whilst on the ice was invisible and then he disappeared with the head shot.  The other Leaf that concerned me last night was JVR. He was floating for most of the game and is not good defensively as well.  He took a terrible penalty leading to goal 4 for the Yotes, so there was a moment when you thought they may cave. Would replacing him with Kapenen really be that bad??
Overall I think the Yotes have a very promising young team, fast, always working, so the future does look bright for them. Last night they were just beating by a bunch of shining young  (and one older) stars.

Forgot to mention Komarov, very solid game, one thing you have to say for him, he works his ass off every game.

Thanks Highlander! Did you notice the Matthews extended brood up in their area? They showed that a few times, his dad with Boris his early coach and his mom with her sisters.

No we were on the penalty box side of the ice, forgot to mention that I noticed Matthews moves like a Jaguar, so deceptively sleek and fast. He has unbelievable movement.
Nylander not far behind, his steal happened right in front of us, I was willing him to score. Followed by Mitch's pass to Marleau who made no mistake.

You got to see 3 beauties, that's for sure.  Thanks for the report.
