Game Notes

EDM
-Koskinen (2-3-0, 3.23 GAA, .906 Sv%) will likely start for the Oilers
-Edmonton's last game was a 3-1 victory on Wednesday night. That was the first time this season the Oilers held their opponent to just 1 goal. What an embarrassing game that must have been for whoever they played. I mean Koskinen had an .897 Sv% going into that night, give me a break!
-James Neal might be making his season debut after starting the season on the NHL's COVID-19 protocol list

TOR
-Andersen (2-2-0, 3.00 GAA, .886 Sv%) will likely start for the Leafs
-I'm making some assumptions with this roster, starting with the starting goalie. We'll await confirmation on that soon
-The other big one is the status of Matthews, who missed practice yesterday after being a little sore from Wednesday's game
-The rest of the line-up is also a little up in the air as we don't know yet if the Leafs will continue with 11F/7D or scratch one of the defencemen. Barabanov skated on the 4th line at practice, while Dermott and Lehtonen were paired together. That could point to Bogosian being scratched if they go with just 6D. Or it could not. What an exciting time we live in!

Injuries

-Mike Smith - Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
-Oscar Klefbom - Shoulder - Out for season
-James Neal - COVID-19 Protocol - Out
      
-Nick Robertson - Knee - Injured Reserve
-Joe Thornton - Undisclosed - Day to day

I actually like the idea of the Tavares - Nylander - Marner line.  It's also kind of sad how quickly or depth is getting used up.

I'd probably go:

Vesey-Tavares-Nylander
Hyman-Kerfoot-Marner
Mikheyev-Engvall-Spezza
Barabanov-Brooks-Simmonds

L1 has already been together all season and been mostly successful although now they'll be tasked with tougher match-ups. There was a planned change to have Hyman there but for now that can be postponed. If Vesey can't keep up with those you can swap him with Mikheyev but for now I'd like to keep the depth spread out a little more.

L2 is the checking line but with Marner now. I think that probably makes the most sense.

L3/L4 is whatever. I think L3 had some minutes as a trio last season, or at the very least Engvall and Spezza played together a fair bit, so there will at least be some familiarity there. But you could swap Barabanov or Simmonds for Spezza or Engvall if preferred.

I think that's a thoughtful build, albeit a waste of Marner's offense at 5v5 (not that there has been much this season). That said, Marner is an 11M guy and now is the time to show he is as on par with Matthews as he believes he is.

PP1 is getting stacked by default now
Hyman/Simmonds
Nylander - Tavares - Marner
Rielly

Maybe. Although I would say the big problem with the offence of that checking line this season has been the lack of a primary puck carrier. Hyman seems to have been doing much of that from my view so having Marner in charge of carrying the puck through the neutral zone could provide an offensive boost to those guys. In any event, these non-Matthews lines will hopefully only need to get us through a game or two so I wouldn't worry too much about something like that.

Rielly

Assuming PP 1 is Hyman - Nylander - Tavares - Marner - Rielly and we are going back to 6 defensemen tonight because of forward depth
PP2 is going to be something like Kerfoot - Spezza - Mikheyev - Simmonds - Brodie

I think I would rather have Hyman in front of the net over Simmonds at this point in the season.  I haven't not liked how Simmonds has played but he isn't really doing that much for the team outside of his fight against Montreal.

I mean I'm not saying that he should be a centre permanently, just that he's capable of moving into the position when injuries hit. Is the alternative of playing Kerfoot, who many people also think is better as a winger, at 2C really more appealing?

Sure, but you're deleting winger Nylander, and in that case I'd rather have Kerfoot at C and winger Nylander doing his thing.

Let's try again

Hyman - Tavares - Nylander
Mikheyev - Kerfoot - Marner
Vesey - Brooks - Spezza
Barabanov - Engvall - Simmonds

eh...

Mikheyev - Tavares - Hyman
Vesey - Nylander - Marner
Engvall - Kerfoot - Barabanov
Brooks - Spezza - Simmonds

I don't hate this that much

I really don't know what I'd do in terms of line combos. Definitely an opportunity for some fringe players to step up and make a statement.

Mikheyev - Tavares - Marner
Hyman - Kerfoot - Nylander 
Vesey - Engvall -  - Barabanov
Brooks - Spezza - Simmonds

Why...first line, Tavares and Marner have worked well together. Tavares is a shooter, Mikheyev also and is fast enough to get in on the forecheck.

Second line, give Kerfoot a chance to see if he can make a consistent impact in a more offensive role. Nylander is the shooter here, all 3 are quick and Hyman does the board work.

Third line, Engvall is a good skater. This is where Vesey belongs IMO even when everyone is healthy. Barabanov - who knows. I wouldn't mind seeing him given a shot higher  up in the lineup but I don't think anyone has a clue what he might be able to provide. Maybe switch him and Hyman to even out the 2nd/3rd lines a bit,

Fourth line, probably won't play much so meh. The slow line. Spezza could be subbed in on other lines when offense is needed. Brooks might be a "safer" bet to play a bigger role on line 3 if Barabanov isn't up to the job.

I would vote Nylander to C. I like the Kerfoot shutdown line concept and performance thus far. I think the team really needs that defensive first match up line. Let's stick to the game plan and not throw anything out the window so early.

He was actually technically removed from the NHL's Covid protocol list on the 15th, so I'm assuming that's when he finally tested negative. He's been out since then because of conditioning reasons as he missed all of camp:

There's a story here if you're interested in his experience with it: https://oilersnation.com/2021/01/22/edmonton-oilers-game-notes-neal-discusses-covid-and-hes-ready-to-return/

Engvall has probably been the most noticeable Leaf this period.  He?s definitely trying to show something

Knows his job is on the line every shift. Hopefully he proves he deserves to stay. Guy's got all the tools to be an effective player.

That's how he played a good part of last season.  You notice his speed since there hasn't been much from others (except Mikheyev).
I would put Engvall in over Vesey any game. Like him better on pk too.

If Engvall wanted to, he could have put the shoulder down and just taken the puck to the net instead of wristing an easy stop.

Or shipped out entirely. New season same old same old. Team needs an overhaul in my opinion. Wednesday sucked and today is not much better. As much as Kapanen and Johnsson had to leave because of Dubas' blunders you can surely see how this team lacks some depth and it all stems with our cap.

It?s nice when someone actually passes to Tavares on the PP

I'm OK with them sticking with 47, 24, and 65 as the third line.

That is definitely part of it.  Matthews isn?t out there to shoot for deflections.  Tavares? hands are elite in front of the net and the leafs  PP just wasn?t designed around that

Either I was really young and thought Cujo won more or we are awful and finding and retaining good goaltenders.

This is Andersen's 5th season with the team. Joseph was only here for 4 seasons. Definitely felt like he had a longer run with the club though.

Kerfoot had his best game as a Leaf, Rielly is too soft defensively,  Brodie is changing my mind, Holl steady and sure.  Where was Dermott tonight?   Like the Envall line.  Vesey should play with Kerfoot all the time.  Souperman good.

Another game where the Leafs absolutely crush shot attempts with Vesey on the ice, this time he went 17-4. 3rd time in 6 games he's been at or above 75%. And tonight it came playing primarily against Draisaitl. Must be doing something right.

Rielly is def too soft defensively. Brodie has been excellent after the first 2 games. Holl is def a second pairing D man. Dermott made a heck of a pinch on Vesey's goal who looked better playing with Kerfoot. Souperman is turning into Mr. Shorthanded threat. Hope he can pop a goal here and there.
Great win for the team.

Pretty sure a good Dermott pinch led directly to Vesey goal

Playing with Nylander and with a heavy helping of OZ starts tends to skew the shot share that way

Hyman / Tavares / Marner - looking good
Vesey / Kerfoot / Nylander looked dangerous
Mihkeyev / Engvall / Simmonds - BIG line with some speed + potential
Barabanov / Brooks / Spezza wasn't horrible in sheltered minutes

So what happens to the lines with Matthews and Thornton coming back?

I've always thought Marner and Tavares look more dangerous together.

And Willy and Matthews always had good chemistry.

I've never liked Matthews with Marner but maybe the stats say different?

I'm not sure the complaints on Rielly are warranted. In my recollection, there was one shift where Rielly got stuck out too long and looked bad. I can't really think of any instance where he was "too soft".

Andersen was the star of that game.

Engvall looked motivated. What are the chances he stays in if Matthews comes back? Also, I kind of liked Nylander on his own with Kerfoot and Mikheyev. He was weak defensively on a couple plays, but he really embraces the "i'm the best player on the line" mentality.

Rielly was too soft on McDavid's goal. Even though it was a great tip, you simply can't give him that kind of room.
Engvall, Barabanov and Brooks will be duking it out to stay when Matthews returns.
Freddie was great.

I have the same thoughts. I think Matthews and Nylander together is deadly.

Yeah, I don't buy the Rielly was "too soft" on the McDavid goal. Rielly comes from behind the net. McDavid comes from the high slot. Both moved into position while the shot was coming in. It's tough to say that in a bang bang play that Rielly should have been more aggressive on McDavid there. I mean, it's pretty easy to call for him to take out McDavid when you watch the replay in slow motion, but I think a lot of defensive players are falling short on that play.

Add me to the list.

Solid game for the most part. Freddy saved them early in the first period but I thought otherwise the Leafs played well. Engvall remains a mystery to me, he looks like a solid NHL player. So why is he on the outside looking in? Contract? Trying to save him for the expansion draft? The Leafs are a better team with him in the lineup. And Barabanov...he certainly isn't making a case for playing time but I don't know how much we can expect from him if he's stuck on the 4th line.
