Tampa down 5-1 with under 5 minutes left.  Home ice is clinched

It is something like 12 days before the playoffs begin.
That's a pretty good stretch to heal up, get Knies integrated (assuming he signs) and settle the lines/pairings.
The biggest challenge might be staying sharp ...

Not 100% sure what's going on with Willy but why doesn't Keefe send a message and sit his ass on the bench or better yet give him a night off as a healthy scratch? Tired of the pampering of our stars. Now if he's hurting then maybe he shouldn't be playing but if that's not the case his play is unacceptable.

I just read through the 2013 game 7 thread of Leafs Boston, I have no idea why

Do you stick pins under your fingernails for kicks too?
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

Nylander was by far the worst leaf out there. He was floating all night.he had no push in his game at all.this needs to change as we need everyone at there best. Mitch has looked off the last few games we saw a bit of him last night but need the real him back. All in all a solid game with a tough finish. Going forward I think they should show Willie a vid of his lazy play and one of the rest of the team playing hard.maybe he will try going forward.

Games essentially mean nothing right now despite the talk of "measuring stick" from last night. Most important thing is Leafs get to the playoffs HEALTHY. We'll also get to see Knies finally next week in 2 or 3 games.

The 4th line having the most TOI is like Keefe gifting the game to Boston, they are playing 4th line good/excellent.

There can't be anything wrong with Matthews setting up Jarnkrok/Bunting, instead of giving Matthews linemates that can get him the puck, could there be?

I agree with you on Matthews' line, that isn't going to get it done.  But Keefe was stress-testing the 4th line, and they passed with flying colors.  He's settled that line.  Now that last 4 games are about finalizing the top 3 lines / resting guys / praying that there are no injuries.

Yeah, if I'm Keefe I'm not pushing Boston too hard, and I'm certainly not showing any cards in terms of matchups.

Gamesmanship and all that.

Who got the penalty :)

Punch to the head no call. Tell you one thing I would never be able to play. Lose it on opposition or the refs absolutely brutal.

I expect O'Rielly to play on the 2nd line, what we saw tonite might be what we see in the playoffs, I don't think the 3rd or 4th lines are settled, 2 or 3 good games by a 4th line is better than none but 4th lines settled or not doesn't amount to much.

4th line is a done deal. Kampf, Lafferty, ZAR.
