Engvall just about gave the game away there. Had a guy across the blue line and made a terrible giveaway and Campbell had to make a very good save.

That was tough where he played so great and then made a low risk play into a high risk give away.  It kind of reminded me of him in last years playoffs.
Engvall set up the winning goal,and played a great game but made one gaff for a Giraffe

That's quite a depleted St. Louis roster...I would expect the relatively healthy Leafs to win this one.
It's St.Louis Frank.  Traditional tough team for us.

Matthews is not going anywhere unless we can get McDavid to replace him. And McJesus wants to come home.  Believe it.

Time for the Leafs to hire Sundin.
He likes to drive his Rolls around Swedin. 

While I think that would be cool, I get the impression that he’s not interested in that kind of work. Or living here.

My Canadian friends who made it to Arizona for the winter are saying nobody are wearing masks anywhere and people are living their lives as normal.  Covid is of course running rampant but no one seems to care.

It hit my wife and my 26 year old son as well.  One drink was like having 3 at that tude.

Any good?
Now that I know you are from Nottingham I will give you my rundown on Richie.  You are going to be very happy with this acquisition.   Usually plays right back, a very decent defender but what Laryea brings is a nice offensive flair able to slash from the wing towards the net and elude and deke defenders and score amazing goals.  He is chippy and not afraid to get in people faces, hence he takes yellow cards frequently. He probably is my favorite TFC player.  You got a gem.

Hate to see Laryea go, he is one of my favourite players for TFC.  He wants to live the dream playing in Europe so good luck Ritchie.  You can always come home again.
And the good thing is we get to see you play for the National team.

Holl wins a puck battle there.  He's been a lot better lately.
Gotta agree, Holl looks like he got new batteries installed.

That was brutal. Matthews looked really slow in that OT.

Altitude.  It's a real effect.  The whole team lost speed as the game wore on.
It definitely is. They were gassed near the end of the 2nd.

I have relatives on the Front Range.  It's not noticeable ... until you exert yourself for any length of time.  You can't really get your breath after awhile.  It takes a day or so to acclimate.
A few years ago, we stayed at a friends house in Crested Butte Co. The house was at 10K Feet above sea level. We had no energy, head aches, hard to walk our dogs as we were out of breath quickly and had trouble sleeping.  Basically felt bad for the 10 days we were there. Supposedly some people take a month to acclimatize at that level. Brutal

I'd like to see Joey Anderson in rather than Ritchie. Maybe Keefe thinks the waiver thing will serve as motivation?

GO LEAFS GO!
Maybe there hoping that he has a decent game so they can trade him. He is a waste of space. Dubas has made so many good moves but I scratch my head at Foligno and Ritchie.
