Hedman was missing from game 2 so every D pair was overmatched, and the Leafs getting the early goal gave them latitude to play without as much hesitancy.

Tampa buckled down and played extremely well in G3 and got their borderline ticky-tacky interference game humming. They were on top of nearly every puck play and rushed Leaf decisions. Samsonov straight up goalied them in the back half and OT, and Vasilevskiy being merely average (no rhythm) sunk them.

What you your advice be for the Leafs tonight?

Play like Game 2, but moreso?

This!

(Different) Set breakouts on retrievals so players don't need to think. Lighting forecheck is going to be sending 2 players in. Beat that first lasher and the Leafs have numbers moving up the ice.

I'd send the most dangerous forward up ice to space out the structure and cut across to the opposite lane to cause some chaos and hand offs. The puck doesn't need to be airmailed to the cherry picker, but it should open up a carry lane

Thanks. Good ideas. :)

I would've expected more discussion based on a turtle flipping based strategy, but I suppose whatever works.

I don't know if we have been able to come to a consensus on if the Leafs are the turtles or flipping turtles

We have become the turtles, is what I've gathered.
