Strange, I would say.  Moore has been really good in his role, IMO.

Agreed. Would like to see him in the lineup instead of Martin. Moore-Gauthier-Brown could be an interesting line.

Why is it that some ACC games face off at 7 and others at 730?

Great news with Naz. I'm guess neck soreness and not a concussion. No way core guys come back without being 100% on those, and that can take a while.

Here we go: no more crazy times, crazy arenas and crazy trips and crazy back-to-backs. Ten days, five games all at home. Home cooking and 5-0.

We're starting to see the big loss that losing Zaitsev is. Everyone gets bumped up and it shows.

Zaitsev is hardly a rock defensively. The bigger issue is that the team seems to be tired and a little beat up. Also guys like Komarov and Polak continue to get significant icetime despite being pretty brutal at both ends of the ice.

Worried Leafs might get walloped tonight. Hope I'm wrong.

I don't disagree with this. I am also a big fan of Brayden Point, who is the player I dreamed Tyler Bozak would have been if developed properly.

It's funny, opinion on Moore seems to be pretty split. I think he's been fine-to-good as a 4C. I've liked the speed he brings, which isn't something that we'll see with Gauthier.

One interesting thing though is that the Martin-Moore-Brown has put up some pretty awful possession numbers this season. In 45 minutes of 5-on-5 play (which admittedly isn't a ton), they're rocking a 30.7% CF rate.

How much do that is really on Moore though.  We are playing a very fast team and just inserted a slow as molasses guy into the lineup.

I'm not a fan of Bowen as PbP man but that was beautiful.  Just perfect.

And no offense to the young anthem singer, but doing them as intsrumentals/sing alongs is the capping classy move.

And kudos to Babcock for saying a few words to Mrs. Bower as she leaves the ice.
