From a Reddit thread:

"Sandin was on the radio a few weeks ago and you could hear Nylander in the background. Radio guys took note and asked Sandin how he would stop Nylander if he had to face him. You then very quietly hear Nylander in the background say "I'm unstoppable"."

Ha!

The Leafs simply took over that game after they scored the first goal. It was a little jumbled in their own zone to start but they used their offensive pressure to take the load off the defensive end.

Big hat tip to Bogosian for the effort on the first goal. That forecheck makes it hard for a team to defend. It's how Toronto often gets trapped.

I really like North/South Rielly when he's playing with speed like he has been these first two games. He's not shifty but he carries the puck at a high speed which helps zone entries.

From before the game:


Mission accomplished.

What is he had just started Engvall to begin with, hmm?

No no I think you're missing the point: clearly he NEEDS to be benched in game 1's in order to activate his giraffe strength. #TrustTheProcess

Hopefully the side benefit of Sandin scoring from the point is that it makes Montreal think or recognize that he's a scoring threat. The more they try to cover him the more it opens up for everybody else, and Matthews in particular.

Wishful thinking maybe, but it would be amazing if this was the big key to getting the power play working again.

What the hell people.

I've been telling you for months that Sandin is unstoppable.

How'd he get that way?

Me.  I taught him.

The difference maker wasn't so much personnel as it was tactical, although Sandin is creative and effective and that was a very nice and well deserved goal.

When the PP struggles, it is static, (too) methodical, predictable, perfectionistic, Marner-centric.

Last night the PP was good because they didn't default to formation; they did this instead:

Our personnel on PP are good enough to generate pretty good looks when doing the methodical set up, in that we have the puck a lot, but it gets easy to defend when we're perfectionistic to the point of leaving Marner/Rielly as the only shooting options (PKs aren't dumb).

Attacking off the rush keeps PKs from using their structure to support defending the slot. Playing more of a retrieval game, rather than perfect passes into the net keeps defenses and goaltenders moving and re-assigning checks and causes mistakes.
