Game Notes

TOR
•Campbell (13-2-1, 2.21 GAA, .922 Sv%) will likely start for the Leafs
•Toronto has 8 games left in the season and 4 of them come against Montreal, their most likely 1st round opponent at this point

MTL
•Allen (9-9-4, 2.49 GAA, .913 Sv%) will likely start for the Canadiens
•Montreal still controls their fate as far as the 4th playoff spot in the North goes. They have a 6 point lead over Calgary with a game in hand and a 10 point lead over Vancouver although the Canucks have played 5 less games. But a 4-8 run in their last 12 games has made everyone in Montreal tense up a little bit

Injuries

•Zach Bogosian - Upper Body - Injured Reserve
•Zach Hyman - Knee - Injured Reserve
    •Frederik Andersen - Lower Body - Injured Reserve
•Riley Nash - Knee - Injured Reserve
•Scott Sabourin - Hand - Injured Reserve
      
•Jonathan Drouin - Illness - Questionable Wednesday
•Paul Byron - Lower Body - Questionable Wednesday
•Carey Price - Concussion - Injured Reserve
•Brendan Gallagher - Thumb - Injured Reserve

I don't think that's right?

Toronto - 48GP - 65P - 24RW - 29ROW - 30W   (H2H 3-3-1 7P)
Vancouver - 42GP - 41P - 13RW - 16 ROW - 19W (H2H 4-3-0 8P)

So if Toronto wins/Vancouver loses today even in regulation for both:

49GP - 67P - 25RW - 30ROW - 31W
43GP - 41P - 13RW - 16ROW - 19W

So if the Leafs go 0-7-0 to finish the year and the Canucks go 13-0-0 it would be
56GP - 67P - 25RW - 30ROW - 31W
56GP - 67P - 26RW - 29ROW - 32W

So Vancouver would still have the tiebreaker win because they would have one more regulation win.

I think the magic number is still 5.

Same thing with Montreal.
47GP - 51P - 19RW - 20ROW -21W
the lose and go to 48GP - 51P - 19RW - 20ROW -21W

They have 8 games left so if they went 8-0-0

56GP - 67P - 27RW - 27ROW - 28W

They would have the Leafs by the RW tie-breaker still.

He goes through more of the math/possibilities in the thread, it might be worth checking it. Since teams are only playing other teams in the division this season it gets a bit more complicated, because for teams like Vancouver or Montreal to completely win out the rest of the year it means a certain amount of guaranteed losses for Edmonton. So even in those scenarios where they win out the Leafs would still be in over Edmonton (assuming regulation wins for the Leafs/sens tonight).

Ahhh yep.  Makes sense now.  Edmonton has 7 games against Vancouver/Montreal

Doubt it. I don't see Robertson getting into any of the remaining games so they don't burn a year off his ELC.

That's definitely a factor that will keep him out of the lineup unless the team is in a position where they're in a must win game and don't have other options to fill in for injuries, etc. They're not going to waste that last game without a really good team-success based reason.

I really like Robertson.  I think next year with a proper offseason to work on his strength and timing and a proper training camp that he will be better prepared to fight for a roster spot but for all of the good things I saw out of him in his handful of games this year he looked like a guy who didn't have a lot of professional hockey experience.  If we get top 6 injuries and are forced to use him, that's one thing but I wouldn't be looking to burn that year just to get him into a meaningless game.

I went back and read some articles about him and it seems he may have some Campbellightus. Taking things on his own shoulders, expecting to be the saviour, trying too hard. The game looks like it has gotten inside his head and not fun to play, especially with the huge expectations on him coming home to the Habs.  Hopefully a good sports psychologist will be able to sort him out.  Hopefully he returns and starts to enjoy playing hockey again.

He looks like a kid that hasn't had a lot of professional experience because he hasn't. If Robertson hadn't gotten hurt I think he'd be a fixture in the Leafs line up. He's had a couple of lengthy injuries this season that ruined it after a very good off season. I think he may still get into the line up but will definitely be in it next season. I think the Leafs can still send him down to the Marlies.

Robertson needs to fix his skating posture; like, I don't want him to die because his head is at hip height the whole game. Just watch videos of Nylander: not the biggest, not the fastest, not the strongest, but applies the speed and strength he has in the right moments.

That and maybe some more awareness of when he is in dangerous situations near the boards. There have been a number of times when I've cringed seeing Robertson "almost" get destroyed. All it will take is once.

Kerfoot is another one who maybe should be more careful, I don't think his skating style is an issue but man, he takes a lot of punishment and some big hits along the boards. Yet he gets up and keeps going (so far).

Nope but was causing havoc in front. That line is playing well.

They are, and it would be really useful if they continue in the playoffs.

Is Sportsnet going to start giving a live feed of Caufield while he sits on the bench?

He still needs to stop those shots whether deserved or not. Let's hope that's it for the Habs.

I don't know...partly or totally screened and shot is up high and in off the post. How many of those does a typical goalie stop?

When Matthews scores one like that it's a great shot. Same here. I put more of the blame on Holl and maybe even Nylander for giving up too much space.

If he lets in 1 or 2 a game I don't really care which shots they are.

Good point, winning the initial draw makes a huge difference.  No need for the hated drop pass then.

Tough game to get a read on. Leafs get the early 2 goal lead, then I think the Canadiens probably were a bit more desperate and aggressive and generally tended to outplay the Leafs, but not by a lot. Certainly they had some really good chances and Campbell stoned them. Good win overall. Some positive signs for the PP once set up but man, they need to figure out how to get to that point!

Allen's 4th goal was an obvious stinker, but both he and Campbell stopped all the breakaways — which there were more of than usual.

Is Price due back for the playoffs?  If not, I think the Leafs should be able to take these guys out without too much trouble.

I really didn't think the Habs looked all that impressive. They clearly lack high end talent. Good fundamentals but no finishers. The one goal they likely get most of the time is the Josh Anderson wide open shot, but not much else.

And it's funny how we're also down Hyman and we don't even mention it much. Just below Nylander in scoring. He's gonna be much appreciated come playoff time.
