Nice work Carlton, as usual.  Minor correction: you still have Samsonov starting in the Game Notes.

If they get swept anything and everything is on the table for change, from Dubas's job on down.  A 4-0 flushing would pretty much wipe out the R1 win.

I wish it were otherwise but that's how I see it.

OTOH if they can win this and then manage to win a damn home game, then maybe the conversation is different.  I hope so.

GO LEAFS GO

I feel like this will be the hill upon which Keefe's Leafs career will die.
I Saw Jay McClement Score.

Great job CtB

Big 4 needs to step up. They need to score more than 2 goals, maybe 5 or 6 just so they can start to belive it.

Go Leafs Go!!!
Go Leafs Go!!!

Just playing for pride tonight. But pride is a good enough reason to give it every last ounce of effort guys!

the last team to come back down 0-3 were the LA Kings in 2014 and went on to win the cup.

There's still a chance.

My bad, I put as much effort into this one as the team did in game 3.

Anyway go Leafs go.

I don't know what level of performance would change my opinion on the team structure at this point.  If they came back and won the series I think that's a given, but I'm not sure if they need to push it to Game 7, Game 6?  I think I'm probably wanting a decent change if they aren't making a crazy push.

But for the love of anything, go out fighting.  If the team gets plastered tonight I think I'm going to lean much harder into blow it up territory.

Not feeling very confident about tonight, but nevertheless

GO LEAFS GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Can't be cheering for Connor Brown no more.

Its been such a crazy playoff around the league I barely even know what to think anymore, but I'm with you. If they get swept, especially via playing a terrible game, I could care less about what happens to the players or execs. If they push it to 7 I could probably be persuaded to change my mind to an extent, but I still think you can't have as much money wrapped up in the 4. I think that's a given now unless they go on some crazy run.
