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!

OK.

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

Oh yeah, he's on a discount.

Marner RD shift with Robertson on RW (just on the shift overlap)

Goals for the period:
- no more injuries
- McMann hat trick goal
- Nick Robertson goal

Holy, there is still another period to go?

Knies move. When he realizes he is strong enough to just do whatever he wants on the ice (and works on the moves obviously) a la Matthews, he will wreck.
