handshake night... hopefully Spezza will give his speech before the game and they will play this one like they can exorcize the demons.

it will be lovely to see Cooper, after his team is eliminated, saying that they gifted the Leafs with the series win because they were tired of winning...

I feel strangely confident they win this game.

I was wondering if Spezzas speech was something along the lines of "I didn't want to make this a thing, but this is my last season." It wouldn't surprise me considering how his season ended.

Now that Tavares & Nylander are alive in this series, I woudn't do that all the time in the game, as it is better to have 2 lines that can do damage and one that control and defend (Kampf/Engvall line)

I just want them to be ready from the start and finish this tonight.

I'm not really sure we're at the load-up stage of the plan yet, but if they did do something like that I'd be really curious to see how Tavares would do on the wing with M&M. He fits more into the Hyman/Bunting role that that they've had success with in the past, but also has the scoring chops that they didn't. You'd still have Kerfoot-Nylander behind them on the 2nd line and the Kampf line for checking.

If we're heading towards another "top line getting shut down on the road by Point/Cirelli" game though I'd rather see M&M split up though for a game.

If the Tavares/Nylander game carries forward, I'm not sure that it will matter.  As deep as Tampa is, they don't have multiple shut down lines like they did last year.  If Tavares/Nylander stay productive they can shut Matthews/Marner down and Nylander can feast.  I'm good with that.

Hyman/Bunting works for Matthews-Marner because they usually played F1 to free up pucks for the money makers. Tavares, unfortunately, cannot F1; the only pucks he's been getting to first since the turn of the new year were the ones where the puck went to him off the bounce, rather than him actually going and getting it.

Starting, I agree splitting the scoring depth should help dilute Tampa's line matching
58-34-25
65-91-16
47-64-88
15-11-19

If we're chasing the score, I'd accordion down to
88-34-16
65-91-47
58-15-25/19

maybe flip 47 with 25/19 depending on the situation's requirements.

I think you're underrating how often it's actually M&M using their speed to get to pucks first on the forecheck (when they're not just entering the zone with control that is) and just poking it along the boards to an available forward. Tavares might not get to puck first all the time but once he gets it along the boards/behind the net he does a good job keeping it and opening up room for other players (i.e. the Rielly goal).

True.

This is a good example of that:
https://twitter.com/TicTacTOmar/status/1522016287970500609

This might sound like moving the goalposts a bit, but every line Tavares has been on also has trouble getting out of their own zone. They're basically shorthanded in the DZ with one less person who can get to the walls and break cycles. Maybe putting him on the wing helps (closer to the action) where he can leverage his stick strength and mitigate his skating weakness a little.

QuoteExplaining the start

I didn't think the Leafs' first period was as bad as some other people (Nick Kypreos was not a fan of it on today's podcast). Still, I did have a number of negative notes about their play, and their inability to handle the puck, so it took me awhile to figure out what I was seeing.

If you're full of nervous energy, your legs work like crazy, but it's harder to use your scalpel in all its intricate detail. The Leafs were getting touches and chances but couldn't make a play, which makes sense in the context of nervous energy.

So while I had "down arrow" notes for William Nylander and Auston Matthews in the first period, over and over with the words "bobbled pucks" by their numbers, I should've seen it as a good sign they were around the puck and involved in the action over and over.

When the Leafs have failed in the past, the problem hasn't been poor offensive touches, it's been ... not getting them at all. They've just quietly disappeared into the night. Those guys were involved from the jump (as much as possible with all the penalties), and it turns out that was a positive.

Leafs have started a bit nervous the past two games, and for a finesse style team, that's rough because all your possessions are a bit bobbly. We saw it against CBJ and MTL as well, when the series was on the line. I think the first 10 minutes the Leafs need to play more lunch pail hockey to weather the initial forecheck. Chip to space instead of trying to handle too much, and use the legs as your primary possession driver, and crash the net ugly on good rebound angles instead of sifting for picture perfect seam plays.

The best chances in hockey come off broken plays in the OZ, where the defense has to shift gears rapidly (Def, Off, suddenly back to Def). Most of the goals we've given up early are of this variety. In the early game, we can generate these of our own by forechecking with speed to cut down decision making time and shooting/retrieving without as much concern for shot quality (Carolina-style). Once a lead is established, roll out the Leafs' possession puck and suffocate the game.

Yeah I'm not saying it needs to happen right now or even next season, but at some point in Tavares' contract I bet he starts playing wing a lot more. I think that'd be good for him.

I agree, for the most part. I think loaded up lines are something that should be a more regular occurrence in games - especially in tight games where the extra momentum or push is required - but they shouldn't be permanent. Maybe even a little more often earlier in games to see if it can help the team grab or add to an early lead. The team needs to use all the weapons available to them, and loading up lines for shifts is one they should take advantage of a little more frequently (and, to be fair, it does seem like Keefe has been trying that a little more of late).

Vasilevskiy has his playoff loss rebound streak put on the line tonight. I expect Tampa to be super ready to play tonight, but I know that the Leafs are capable of winning this.

If you told me that the leafs would be up 3-2 going into game six and that Vasilevskiy would have a 3.65GAA and a .880SV% after 5 games, I would have been ecstatic. I wish I felt that way going into the game though. :)

I've been really struggling with late nights now that I'm old and been watching them the morning after the game while avoiding spoilers.

But I was playing sport tonight with my game finishing about 10pm so the buzz and adrenaline has kept me awake this late so I'm gonna try and battle through tonight's game. Plus, well, if you can't watch a game six...

I also have a work event that I'm presenting at at 10am tomorrow too, for which I haven't yet sorted my script or even really what I plan to say, so expect triple overtime so I'm presenting at it with zero sleep ;D

Toronto had two shots earlier in the game from a low angle they didn't get credit for.  Campbell gloved a puck 5 feet wide of the net to help start a transition and Tampa got credit for the shot.

To be fair, he shoulder checked and made eye contact with Brodie. But Brodie's face for "let's go!" and "going for a change" is the same.

Just got home looks like we got off to a better start. Poor play by Kerfoot. I hate that drop pass even on the PP at times. How's the officiating?

The call on Morgan was chintzy.  One coincidental.  They've let everything else go, but then again the play seems to be cleaner.

A big story of the last two games is Nylander.  Two playoffs in a row where he's stepped up.  Another multi-point night tonight.

Really nice set up by Willy off that stretch pass/bump. Not perfect but Tavares can handle anything if he has just a bit of space. Skate, stick, net.

Advantage us. We have a fallback.

That said, it sure would be nice for them to rise to the occasion and win this thing.

Tampa was not tying this unless they get that huge opportunity.  Still think it's BS.

I think all four lines have gotten going. Scoring threats were everywhere tonight, really. That is a good sign. Hopefully they blow the doors off the Lightning in Game 7. We will see.

To me, Giordano seemed like too much of a liability to keep putting out there, too many giveaways and footspeed is definitely a problem for him.  Another deadline deal miss.

Honestly, I don't see any whipping boys this series.

I think there has been a let down guy every game but aside from the guys who haven't received another opportunity (Simmonds/Clifford) no one has been bad two in a row.

Was thinking the same...he had lots of jump compared to the rest, could have spotted him a couple extra shifts up the lineup as well.

In hindsight the first high stick should not have been a penalty.

Game 6 - Tampa 3 powerplays; Toronto 1 powerplay
Game 5 - Tampa 5 powerplays; Toronto 6 powerplays
Game 4 - Tampa 8 powerplays; Toronto 3 powerplays
Game 3 - Tampa 3 powerplays; Toronto 5 powerplays
Game 2 - Tampa 7 powerplays; Toronto 4 powerplays
Game 1 - Tampa 5 powerplays; Toronto 6 powerplays

Tampa 31 powerplays - 1 puck over glass/too many men
Toronto 25 powerplays - 5 were puck over glass/too many men

So Tampa now has a 10 powerplay advantage over 6 games for referee discretion calls.

That's some awesome bull#$#%.

Honestly, I don't see any whipping boys this series.

This is nowhere near whipping boy territory and I know he picked up an assist on the 2nd goal last night but I've been pretty underwhelmed with Kase's play in these playoffs. Maybe he's still got some lingering injury stuff but he hasn't played anywhere near his best hockey. I might be tempted to throw Simmonds back into the line-up provided he pinky-swears to Spezza that he won't take any dumb penalties.

Clifford skates better than Simmonds and is defensively responsible, but he would need a double pinky swear.

The Leafs deserved to win.  Austin almost got that tip in goal from an excellent set up from Marner.

But TB's 5 on 3 power play may have been the deciding factor.  Why shouldn't Foote be fined for embellishment?  It may help to underline how many times TB has been getting away with it during this series.

Getting 5-6 minutes a night is not going to showcase Kase and what he brings. He's not a fourth liner. He needs to have puck touches and ice time.

Secondary assists don't mean much but Kase does have 3 points in 6 games.  Clifford keeps showing himself as not being able to avoid the stupid play.  I don't trust either Simmonds/Clifford to not make a bad decision.  I don't think the 3 hits that Simmonds/Clifford provide offset the risk that they take a stupid penalty at a stupid point in time.

I'm not going to complain too much about the game last night. As mentioned, Toronto was the better team, except for 3 glaring mistakes.
1-The drop pass by Kerfoot = Goal
2-The lateral entry pass by Mikheyev = Goal
3-The ridiculous aggression by Kerfoot = 5 on 3 = Goal

Other than that, the Leafs played well enough to win, but I felt they sat back in the 3rd and played "not to lose". This team is not built to play a 1-2-2 offense. Especially not against Tampa Bay. Allowing Tampa the ability to leave their zone with speed coupled with a very easy zone entry into Toronto's defensive zone is a recipe for disaster. They played most of the 3rd like a PK. That type of hockey drives me up the wall.

Am I the only one who thinks the kerfoot high sticking call was BS? Hedman grabbed his stick and hit himself in the face. Kerfoot was just trying to get up.

I can kinda let the first high sticking call go but the second one felt like complete horseshit to me.

I'm the opposite - Kerfoot has to be in control of his stick there, but Kampf's penalty was not a penalty.  Even if you consider the shoulder a "high stick," which I see the argument, you have to call Foote on the embellishment, because he threw his head back like he was in a car accident.

They were both heavily questionable calls for the reasons stated here. Shouldn't be a penalty if you lift someone's stick into your face and it also shouldn't be a penalty if you get hit by a stick below the level where it's legal for that stick to play the puck.

Yeah, I agree with you here. The Kampf one, there's no debate about it, that just literally wasn't a penalty. Ref thought Kampf got Foote in the face but he didn't. I've always been iffy about calling examples of what Foote did embellishment. I think most people in general if they had a stick swing that close to their face would just naturally flinch their head back in response. It often doesn't look great in slow-motion though.

The Kerfoot one, by the definition in the rule book, is a penalty even if we don't like it. A player "must be in control and responsible for their stick". There isn't really any exception for when Hedman does what he did. Feels like there probably should be one though.

The Kerfoot one likely never happens if the first phantom call is never made since he was hard on the forecheck there trying to steal the puck, but alas, it's all moot now.
