Good time for another Nylander shortie.
This series of penalty calls is a funny joke
Beautiful PK shift by Marner
Very nice

Slick, unselfish play by Marner

Keefe sticks with Tavares and Nylander on separate lines. I don't think either line performed particularly well against St. Louis but nice to see the experiment getting a few games.

I like this. Stress test Domi (see if Nylander can adjust and carry the line), give Tavares a rest but also boost McMann/Robertson's offensive opportunities in a relatively low-stakes situation. Most lines will have something a little different to play for in an otherwise throwaway game.

Only slightly worried by the number of brain cells on line 2. Because it's probably only 2.
Rifai wears 83 on the Leafs.

Very Knies effort and goal from Line 1. It's so hard to find the time and space you used to have in lower leagues especially as a rookie. Knies is starting to make his own space and make good on those fleeting opportunities.

Nylander continues to lead the Leafs in SHG, which is very amusing to me, especially because he just stands in the high slot most of the PK time waiting for hapless PPers to drift through his ice like Greek sailors navigating Scylla and Charybdis.

Marner behind the net on the PP with shooters drifting into the slot while everyone looks the wrong way has been my platonic ideal PP set up for years. Nice stick lift by Bertuzzi to give Marner operating room, and easy finish for Matthews when he just drops in from up high like a leopard. 

Great day for Dubas-era development stories too: Rifai, McMann, Justin Brazeau (sadly for the Bs) all showing up in NHL minutes.
What a weird hour to play this game. Nice for Arn though!

Who?  (I'm not a very good fan, I don't pay any attention to the Marlies.)

He's the Simon Benoit of the Marlies.

I had him earmarked as the next Justin Holl project when the Marlies picked him up
