What do you think our odds are? We definitely need October/November/December Jack in there. When they crushed us 8-1 I took notice. This is an elite team. We've got a puncher's chance. I say run the body as much as you can. Guys can get taken out legally with good hits.

Keefe said "the harder the better. It's what we need right now."

We're definitely underdogs. We'll see if that suits us. Hopefully Bunting, Sandin and Kase can get in there at sometime.

Kase looks like he might be playing in game 1. He also practiced on the 2nd PP unit today.

Is spezza injured? If not, Clifford over spezza seems kinda nuts.

Leafs will have last change and they'll likely be matched up against Tampa's also-physical 4th line: Maroon-Bellemare-Perry. I guess they don't want that 4th line setting the physical tempo right off the bat. Highly doubt Clifford plays every game. Hoping the the plan is to have Bunting back for game 3 and the 4th line could turn into Kerfoot-Blackwell-Spezza/Simmonds.
