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 can see why the ref didn't see that, he was blocked by the post.

It rebounds out but it clearly doesn’t make a ping.
