Winnipeg won last night so they are 5 points back with both teams having 13 games left.   We had our two little blip games.  Need to come out strong and take 3 of 4 left against Winnipeg and out an end to their hopes of finishing at the top of the division.

Yes 100%. Even more so, it's important for them to show a more consistent effort tonight. Really it started against Ottawa where they got away from their game plan and now they haven't been able to rediscover it.

Nylander being on protocol means he hasn't skated in 7 days.  Do you hold him out of the game today given there is a hypothetical scenario where the Leafs don't play again until Monday if their game against Vancouver on Saturday gets postponed?

No big deal to bring him on and play PP specialist at just over 4th line minutes and goose that up if he looks okay. Nylander >>>>>>> Sabourin

The fact that they announced Robertson was off the list but not Nylander probably means he's still not eligible to play.

I wonder if its just a matter of testing.  The NHL seems to have tests that are getting done later in the afternoon.  Robertson being put on and taken off in less than 24 hours makes me feel like they put him on it as a precaution while clarifying his risk of exposure and was found to not really be at risk so was lifted.

I figure if Willy is getting cleared it won't be until late afternoon.

I mean its convenient to look back at games after the fact but Matthews really wasn't shooting much in the Calgary game.  He was fumbling passes too.  Key division matchup tonight aside, this might be a good one to sit out.  We probably aren't going to play Vancouver on Saturday at this rate (or will be playing a team that is woefully unfit to play NHL hockey) so it gives at least 4 days off and who knows what happens to that Monday game.  If the league has to push a bunch of Vancouver games back it could also mess up the flow of the end of the season for the Leafs where rest will be even more important for guys.

I wonder if the Leafs are figuring their game against Vancouver on Saturday (and maybe even the Monday one) will be cancelled and this is a good opportunity to give him a bunch of days off.

Also, the NHL needs to buck up and shorten the rest of the season, at least in the North.

Four.

We have four games left against the Canucks, Montreal, and Winnipeg.  We have one game left against Ottawa to finish the season (for now)

Winnipeg has two games left against the Canucks and Edmonton has 5 games left against them.

Toronto and Edmonton have the most freebie points available to them from the Canucks at the end of the year so they honestly might get hurt a bit in the standings if Vancouver doesn't play all of their games.  I'm sure that they will find a way to get the ones against meaningful teams in but it also might make the schedule messy down the stretch.

I would hope the league would have a method in place for addressing games that need to be postponed but won't have a direct impact on the standings. Like, even if it's as simple as just giving each team a single point for the games that don't get played. But, this is the NHL, so, I don't have a ton of faith.

Considering that a playoff spot is effectively sewn up and home-ice advantage stands to be pretty minimal this year I'm ok with the team being a little extra cautious where Matthews is concerned.

As far as in-game momentum swings and so forth,  I'd go so far as to say that home-ice advantage is effectively zero.  As long as we're in the top 4 in the division I don't think it makes a lick of difference where.

I certainly hope the solution isn’t to move the Leafs game to Sunday/Monday against Vancouver.

Winnipeg plays Saturday and then has three days off waiting for Toronto Wednesday/Friday/Saturday.  So the Leafs would play a back to back in Vancouver then head into they. That isn’t a great setup with the division lead on the line.

It does give you last change to set up defensive matchups and might carry a little bit of weight if you get to the final four where there are probably going to be decent sized crowds

Leafs probably won't be playing at home in the final 4 with the quarantine. Leafs also own the best road record in the league. I think sometimes not having last change is better. Make the opposition adjust to who you want to play.

I’m so done with Rielly on the PP.  everything slows down once the puck is on his stick.  The lazy drop pass back to Marner where everyone is stationary also lives on.  You can claim it’s between the ears but if you keep doing the same numbing set plays that don’t work that’s on the coaching staff to change it

They did mix it up for about 1 game and then Keefe publicly said he was going back to the same stuff.  It's not just that they aren't scoring, they aren't even close to scoring.

Campbell is really crashing back down to Earth but again.  The PP isn’t working.  It’s killing momentum and we do nothing differently.  It’s killing them lately and we playing short handed because of it.  Do something different

I know we talked about this a lot in one of the other game threads. I just don't see what benefit Rielly brings on the PP right now. No shot, too slow/safe with his passes, not good defensively. When everyone is healthy Nylander should replace him.

The PP is horrible right now so whatever. Connor just said we got a goal on the PP and it gave us a boost. Timely saves, saving the ones you should make all the difference.
Like I said, if this was Freddie in net, we all know who would be getting the blame for them being down 3-1.
Jack needs to get it together or we'll be hoping Rittich can hold the fort until Fred comes back.

I missed it live just watched the replay and was thinking the same thing why not pass it back to the goalie. Just stupid on Mitch's part. Oh well I figured with Matthews out was going to be tough the way we've been playing lately.

Exactly. If he’s paying attention and plays goalie instead of sweeper, that’s a nothing play that would go basically unmentioned. Rittich’s baffling decision there is the reason that puck ended up in the net.

This looks like a totally different team than the one we watched first half of this season. They've all really lost their mojo. Is it time for a closed door meeting or something? A benching? A scratching? Getting the PP going has to be a major focus. I can't help but feel like giving Matthews the night off is a mistake. He snipes one on the 5 on 3, it might have been a different outcome.

Exactly. Let's keep in mind Willy has been out for a week now and with Matthews out the struggle was real..if Jack was solid tonight and in Montreal the outcomes are probably different. I hope Jack can bounce back here and I think he will.

I don't look at just wins never have. I see how the team plays and all teams go through periods when they don't win or play well. Sure they've been getting the W's but the team is playing nowhere near where they were when they swept the Oilers etc. Not just a 4 or 5 game stretch. Team is back to playing too loose for my liking a la Babcock. The PP still hasn't been figured out and winning the division isn't so certain anymore. I'd like to see them sharp to because if they play like this in the playoffs I'm not so sure how far we go.

His speed and tenacity were pretty obvious, as was the fact that he has reasonable offensive instincts. Definitely needs some more refinement before he's a full-time NHLer, though. Hopefully, a good chunk of time next season with the Marlies will help there.

He has NHL skills but he's still trying to play an OHL game. I've noticed a few instances of him getting a shot off from too far out/with no traffic in front of the net and in the OHL those would usually go in for him but not against NHL goalies. And I'm pretty sure last night he got fed passes to the slot from the boards twice but it took him too long to accept/handle the pass and by the time he got it the defence was on him and prevented him from scoring. Again in the OHL the defence probably doesn't get on him as quick and he's able to score. 14 AHL games haven't been enough to break out of those habits.

As for Robertson. He was fine last night. Nice pass to Spezza for the JT goal. Works hard, made some nifty moves. Will take time but I'd like to see him get a shot higher up.

Maybe it’s just me but I wasn’t all that wowed by Robertson.  I think there is definitely a player there but I think he still hasn’t figured out how to not try and do too much.  I don’t see him ready to knock other guys out of the lineup this year.

His brother apparently is pretty good though.

Which is why I'd like to see him getting first line minutes in AHL as opposed to 4th line minutes in Toronto.

I know we should panic and feast on our brains, but for some perspective, we are still 1st in the division and in a 5-way tie for 2nd in the league; Matthews looks like he's going to win the Richard trophy and Marner has broken the record for the most points by a Maple Leafs player in their 1st five seasons.

But But But, the team that's gone 9-2-2 in their last 13 games just isn't good enough! They need to be tougher! They're weak mentally and physically! This team just isn't he same team as the first half of the season.  :o

I am just surprised that only the Leafs lost last night.  I guess I should be panicking.  I mean it was a team directly below them in the standings.  It should not have happened.

Too bad that Chicago fighting for the playoffs didn't lose to bottom feeder Detroit or that NYI going for 1st in the East didn't lose or better yet that 1st Place team in the East Washington didn't lose 5-2 to the joke of a team Buffalo who were without Eric Staal, Hall, Eichel,  etc....

...oh wait...

Those teams are also soft, weaklings.

I think Rittich was expecting Marner to pass him the puck. Doesn't make sense why he was waiting the way he was.
Marner said in his media availability that he messed up, more then once, and did in fact try to pass it back to Rittich and hung him out there. Then he said sh!t happens lol.

Agreed and once everyone is healthy and Foligno arrives, that's where he'll probably be - assuming there is an AHL season to return to.

I didn't see most of last night's game but I have seen flashes of high-level talent from Robertson. He's made a few really shifty/clever moves, made a nice pass on the PP (I don't remember which game), is quick and tenacious. I don't think he knows his linemates very well so he seems to be all over the place, maybe trying to do too much at times. But, really hard to get a good read based on his usage so far.

I would like to see him get 1 game with substantial first or second line minutes to see how he meshes with better linemates but Keefe doesn't seem to be interested in that. Especially if Matthews and Nylander are still out for the next game - give him the opportunity. Put him on PP1, he's a definite shot threat (I remember that amazing goal off the faceoff in the blue/white game). It's not like the PP can get much worse at this point.
