If they keep playing like they did Saturday (read: like they did pretty much all season) then only a terrific performance from Price stands between them and a second round.

I thought Nylander was going to shoot, but Spezza was wide open so I can see why he passed.

If you extrapolate Cole Caufield’s 10 games over a 20 season 82-game career he would break Gretzky’s scoring record

Simpson is absolutely right, that was frantic. A couple glorious chances, some saves, some blocks and an ill advised pass instead of a shot, and the Leafs are up 2-1.

Caufield does have a pretty spicy wrister.

I didn't have a good feeling about this one after hearing Foligno was a no-go. Boys proved me wrong. Kerfoot had a strong game. Willy is on fire. Jack makes it look easy. The Leafs had a large amount of golden opportunities to make this game far from close, particularly in the 2nd. Let's do it again tomorrow!!

Marner is sucking the life out of the PP on that side.
Yup.. Brutal

Yup. Thornton too seems like a complete waste of space on the first pp.  He’s in a sniper spot in the middle of the ice and has no role in the entry or in puck retrieval. It just makes no sense.  Matthews and Nylander on opposite wings. If you can’t take Marner out, try him in the middle. He could take quick shots or make creative plays and help with entries.

I’d take Thornton out. Thornton-Spezza-Simmons is too slow and defensively problematic. Spezza is great. Simmons I can understand his role. Sorry Joe. Take a seat tomorrow.

I think it will depend on Foligno again. If he continues to use Engvall with Mikheyev and Simmonds I could see him reuniting Brooks with Spezza and Thornton.

Spezza, yes. He is amazing. Thornton, no. Thornton is not winning any offensive zone puck battles, turns the puck over, is slow getting back on defense, is not creating offense, has no impact on the power play. His intangibles had really better be through the roof somehow.

Yeah, Thornton has been to meh this season with a few flashes of nastiness or skill every 10 or so games.  I would sit him for 10 games and then see what he can do rested.

Spezza has been fantastic!  Great skill, heavy hits, elite FOs. 

Simmonds should see how good Weber broken hand is.  Weber is tough holding his stick.  Drop the stick wuss and fight like a tough guy.
