Quote from: cw on January 17, 2024, 11:27:57 PMDetroit won tonight. Look who is in a wildcard spot ...
https://www.nhl.com/standings/2024-01-17/wildcard

Really wasn't expecting that. Detroit followed up a 1-6-0 stretch by going 6-1-1. Leafs meanwhile went from going 4-0-0 to 0-3-1.

Leafs do still have 2 games in hand though. Just gotta, you know, win them.

Well an 8-2 stretch and Tampa and Detroit both cooling off a little has the Leafs sitting comfortably 3rd in the Atlantic division again. The Leafs are on pace for 103 points while Detroit and Tampa are at 95 and 93 respectively. That's a pretty massive gap in points over half way through the season, although of course nothing is set in stone yet.

Same.Extra shoutouts to the Brodie-Liljegren pair, who absolutely crushed their minutes tonight. Actual 5-on-5 shot on net with that pair on the ice were 14-1 for Toronto.

Edit: I had an epiphany and changed my vote to Marner, Brodie HM. He deserves it for probably the best game of his season. Especially with all the guys missing.

Man, good for Brazeau. Always liked him. Just turned 26 years old a few weeks ago. First NHL game, first NHL goal.

College kid didn't need the nap.

Both teams unsurprisingly playing like they usually take pre-game naps around this time (which they do).
#6
Interesting that Willy and Robertson swapped spots in the lineup once the game started vs warmups.

Nice to see McMann rewarded. He's definitely earned a stretch of games somewhere in the middle-6.

•Calle Jarnkrok - Hand - Injured Reserve

Game notes
STL
•Jordan Binnington (19-15-2, 2.93 GAA, .908 Sv%) will likely start for the Blues

TOR
•Ilya Samsonov (11-4-6, 3.25 GAA, .881 Sv%) will likely start for the Leafs
•Tavares is expected to return to the line-up on Monday after missing Saturday's game with an upper body injury
•Domi, Liljegren, and McCabe all missed practice on Monday due to "maintenance" reasons, while Lagesson is considered questionable after leaving Saturday's game with an upper body injury. So the projected line-up could see a number of changes between now and when the puck drops Monday afternoon
•With all the question marks on defence the Leafs called up 25-year old defenceman Marshall Rifai from the Marlies. If Rifai makes his NHL debut on Monday he will be the 11th defenceman to suit up for Toronto this season

Game notes
ANA
•Lukas Dostal (8-13-1, 3.60 GAA, .900 Sv%) will likely start for the Ducks
•Starter John Gibson left Anaheim's last game with an upper body injury, and there hasn't been an update on his status yet. With that said there's a good chance Dostal will get start regardless considering his 55-save performance in Anaheim's first game against the Leafs this season

TOR
•Ilya Samsonov (11-4-6, 3.25 GAA, .881 Sv%) will likely start for the Leafs

Matthews
HM Marner

Lily and Sammy are getting their dues already but Marner got a little overshadowed by Matthews last night. He's up to 22 points in his last 16 games now, while only being pointless in 2 of them.

It's crazy to think that there's going to be a guy who could very well score 70 goals this season and he'll likely be at best a distant 3rd in the Hart race.

Quote from: Rob on February 15, 2024, 01:36:52 AMIf someone can't go, slap their sweater and a pair of fake nose mustache glasses on Rielly.

Thankfully, looks like there's no need for that:

Game notes
PHI
•Samuel Ersson (15-9-3, 2.49 GAA, .901 Sv%) will likely start for the Flyers
•Philly made a big announcement on Wednesday naming Sean Couturier the 20th captain in team history, a position that has been vacant since Claude Giroux was traded away 2 years ago. Couturier was out of action for 22 months, missing the entire 22/23 season, with a major back injury and returned this season with his usual Selke-worthy level of play

TOR
•Ilya Samsonov (10-4-6, 3.26 GAA, .880 Sv%) will start for the Leafs
•William Nylander has joined Marner and Tavares in the sick club, as all 3 players did not practice with the team on Wednesday due to the flu bug going around the team
•If all 3 forwards are unable to suit up on Thursday it would put the Leafs in a bit of a pickle roster space wise, and they could be forced to play with just 11 forwards unless one of those 3 end up on the IR

Quote from: Frank E on February 14, 2024, 04:50:39 PMWhen I played hockey even as late as my early teens we had to wear neck guards...not for blades so much, more for sticks and pucks. 

They were hot and itchy so I'd guess that's why players are resisting them...branding marketing opportunity NHL!

I imagine that stuff's come a long way since the 70s though.
