Game Notes

TOR
•Andersen (23-14-4, 2.69 GAA, .920 Sv%) will likely start for the Leafs
•Marner has taken Komarov's place on the 2nd line as Babcock looks for a more balanced attack
•The 4th line has a completely new look too with Komarov taking Martin's spot, Moore bumping Gauthier out, and Kapanen coming up from the Marlies

CHI
•Jeff Glass (3-3-1, 3.17 GAA, .909 Sv%) will likely start for the Blackhawks
•Chicago finds themselves in unfamiliar territory this season: they're 7 points out of a playoff spot and it looks like they'll miss the post-season for the first time since 2007-08
•Patrick Kane is still Patrick Kane though: the all-star has 48 points in 47 games this season
•Jonathan Toews has just 31 points in 47 games this season, an 82-game pace of 54 points. He had a nearly identical points pace last season after 43 games when he had just 28 points, but the second half of the season saw him score 30 in 29 games. Will a similar outburst happen this year?
•Duncan Keith has 111 shots on net this season. Not a single one has found the back of the net. He has 0 goals and 22 assists in 47 games

Injuries

•Nathan Horton - Back - Out indefinitely
•Joffrey Lupul - Actually Injured - Out indefinitely
•Nikita Soshnikov - Groin - Injured Reserve
•Nikita Zaitsev - Lower Body - Injured Reserve
•Morgan Rielly - Arm - Injured Reserve
      
•Tommy Wingels - Face - Questionable Wednesday
•Corey Crawford - Concussion - Injured Reserve
•Michal Rozsival - Concussion - Injured Reserve
•Marian Hossa - Illness - Out indefinitely

Well done as always CTB. Typo with Hossa or is there another one?

Chicago changed his name to Martin. It was a cap move. Try and keep up.

Ah, thanks. You know I'm pretty sure I actually took him OFF of it when I wrote it up. Wishful thinking I guess.

I really like these lines.  You could honestly make an argument for 3 of the 4 lines being "good" defensive units and having a guy like Brown on the JVR-Bozak line probably makes that a better defensive unit than Marner being there.

Neither Marner nor Brown make the JVR-Bozak tandem anything more than useless defensively.  I'd also argue that Marner is probably better defensively than we give him credit for- but what always stands out is how often he gets burned when cheating for offense and some of that has to do with having linemates that aren't going to make up for it.

I honestly think Nylander does it just as often as Marner, but Matthews is a heck of a lot better defensively so Nylander's mistakes/cheating don't end up in our net as often.

OK Babs.  So you realize you'll need more tempo and speed on all 4 lines but it's taken you 50 games to try more skill and speed on the 4th line.  Coach of the year.

Yes, but he developed a healthy sample size so he's validated himself statistically.
