Game Notes

TB
•Vasilevskiy will start for the Lightning. In the last 2 seasons Vasilevskiy is 14-0 with a .966 Sv% after a playoff loss
•The Lightning tinkered a little with their middle-6 forwards at practice on Tuesday but no major changes are expected in the line-up

TOR
•Campbell will start for the Leafs
•Clifford will of course miss the game after being suspended for his hit early in game 1
•However it seems like Clifford may have been sitting anyway as Bunting was back alongside Matthews and Marner at practice on Tuesday. Confirmation of his playing status won't come until the morning skate though


Injuries



                                                           
      

•Rasmus Sandin - Knee - Injured Reserve
•Petr Mrazek - Groin - Injured Reserve
•Michael Bunting - Lower Body - Probable

I had to start drinking 2 hours before puck drop for game 1 just to calm my nerves enough to watch. Tonight isn't going to be any different. I can't do this for every Leaf playoff game. At some point I have to watch them stone-sober. Just not tonight . Lol

Leafs need to take advantage of these PP's because you know the penalties will somewhat even up.

Bieksa has it right, the Leafs are pouring it on in the OZ.  The other thing is that Campbell has been solid.  If we get the next one it'll be a barnburner.

I don't think it has to do with the physical play. I think they're focusing too much on not getting scored on again. They aren't being as aggressive. It's 2-0 not 10-0. It's not insurmountable. They need to stay on their game.

Edit: They scored as I was typing this. Point still stands. Just play your game.

My takeaways so far:

TB miles better than last time, winning most puck battles, we're way too sloppy, refs favoring the Lightning — but the main thing is we are still in the game.

Let's see if they can mount a push early in the third.

The difference is a lucky bounce and a complete bs penalty tonight.

Not that there haven't been bs penalties, the two ppg were on dumb obvious penalties that should have been called. They killed the bs ones.

Good time for the PP to go in a funk. Didn't like the PP in game 1 and tonight no different. Even though the Leafs PP was #1 during the year TB's looks in my opinion more dangerous once they have possession. They move it well. Leafs want to win this series PP has to be better than theirs.

The Leafs have come back a lot.  If we get to 7 minute and they aren't generating things sure we can talk about game 3 but we aren't anywhere near close to give up time

The Lightning deserve to be ahead, no question.  Hedman has been a monster.

That last PP was our lowest point in the game.  They need to get Matthews some looks in the third, and Tavares has to do something other than win a faceoff.

Their first 2 PPs was just fine for PP1, plenty of movement, shots on net.

Man watching a bit of the Bruions game. Bruins shooting themselves in the foot with penalties as well. After they took 2 more penalties one a 4 minute penalty they have resorted to everything and the officials are letting it all go. Brutal. Regardless of the score and if you're already down the calls still need to be made. This one may get rough before it ends.

If I were Keefe, I'd be telling the guys that they have a chance to make a statement at home and come back and win this thing.  To just take the series by the throat.  It'll involve taking some risks and Campbell will have to be perfect but that's got to be the attitude.

I don't think the leafs are playing badly so much as Tampa is playing very well pressuring them. Pucks that were on leafs sticks in game 1 are bouncing off in game 2.

I have disliked him since last year's playoffs when he made light of how Tampa avoided cap penalties by sitting him all season and magically he was ready for game one of the playoffs. I also didn't like how he questioned why Montreal fans were so excited about winning game 4 of the finals in ot. I'm tired of his crap. I don't care how good he is.

Where is that aggressive Leafs team from game 1.  Leafs players are standing around and not chasing the puck.  They deserve to lose.

They were there the first period.  Since then TB has played like the champions they are.

Too scared to get hit. Playoff hockey and as I said before I personally don't think this team is built for it. Very physical, a lot of shit you have to push through some of these guys aren't cut out for it. Hope they prove me wrong.
Agree! Leafs playes are either skill but small or big but can't skate.

Keefe needs to have a good chat with these guys after this game. Nothing wrong with being physical but you got to stay away from the ridiculous penalties. If not giving up the PP goals it's losing any momentum.

No. Five different Canadian teams have made it to the finals since Montreal last won the cup. I think it is just that the league has started to catch up.

Exactly.  And though they were helped somewhat by the refs, Tampa Bay played like we all know they can play.  I'll take consolation out of the fact that the Leafs have put 8 behind Vasilevskiy.  Marner and Matthews have shown up.  Now we need the 2nd line to, too.

Not a great result but the game was fairly even at 5-on-5, Vasilevskiy played great but we still got 3 on him which is pretty tough to do in a playoff game, reffing was awful, a couple of bad breaks on the PK and bad penalties by Simmonds was basically the difference. This series is far from over.

Man I don't get the PP mentality. Down by 2 goals 6 on 4 with a minute or two left and we pass it around. Shoot the puck, have a screen and hopefully bang in a crap goal whatever. Instead of killing it and rifling the puck around the boards after a shot from wide. Matthews and Reilly both had shots from good positions on the ice but no. God you are down two goals.

Tampa was 3/7 on the PP.  That was the difference in the game.  If the Leafs can get back to not taking penalties and killing off the ones they do take, that will go a long way to helping the Leafs in this series.

It was the unnecessary penalties that killed them. Two bad penalties by Simmonds and that hold by Kerfoot at the end of the first were the ones that got scored on.

I agree that they got jobbed but only because Tampa was not getting called for doing the same things.

Down 2 and they spent way too much time trying to be cute on the PP

They have been like that all season. So predictable and Rielly still refuse to shoot.

It was the #1 PP in the league.

It was the 15h highest PP% of all time and 4th in the last 30 years.

I was going to say that other than the McDavid Oilers it was the most successful PP any team has had in three years but yours is better.

But yeah. Bad all year.
Leafs lose a game and you'd think they were picking first overall in the draft.

Not at all —the script remains the same, is I think what is being expressed, which is a completely justified view until they show differently.



I agree with this fundamental premise, but let's make reasonable arguments in defense of it.  The fact is that this is going to be a tough series for the Leafs (or any other team) to win, and if they don't, the question is what changes should be made.

Quote from: tomcom on May 04, 2022, 10:52:05 PMThey are #1 because they have the best shooter in the entire league.

The Leafs PP this year was 7.2% more effective than St. Louis' was the year Brett Hull scored 86 goals. It was 3.1% more effective than Pittsburgh had the year Mario Lemieux scored 85.  It was 1.7% more effective than the Oilers the year Gretzky scored the most goals anyone has ever scored during a NHL season. It was more effective than any PP the Caps have had during Ovechkin's entire career.

I choose to take from this that you feel Matthews is a better shooter than Gretzky, Lemieux, Hull and Ovechkin combined.

Absolutely they need to prove it, but I'm cheering until the bitter end of their run, and quite frankly the talk of the narrative still being the same in a 1-1 series is so goddamn irritating, especially when they're nowhere to be found during literally the best regular season in franchise history and only come out to shit on the team after a playoff loss.

Kucherov and Stamkos both didn't get a single shot attempt while up against Matthews/Marner at 5-on-5. Tavares, even though he isn't producing enough offence, also did a very good job neutralizing them at 5-on-5. Cut the dumb penalties down and this series is still in Toronto's favour.

Good observations.  If Matthews were as invisible as Stamkos the first two games the Hot Takes Leafs Fanbase would be screaming so loud it would knock Earth off its tilt.

I think we need more from Tavares though.  We need more from Nylander too but the thing about Tavares is I'm not really seeing much of anything one way or the other.  The 4th line was really bad last night but was it just me or did I see them have more than a handful of shifts against the Kucherov line.

Obviously Tavares is getting paid enough money to be more than just a shutdown C but if he's able to neutralize the Stamkos/Kucherov line in Tampa then even if he doesn't really provide much offence that's putting us in a very good position to win those games.

Kucherov played about a minute against both Blackwell and Simmonds. Stamkos had about a minute against Blackwell but just 4 seconds against Simmonds. So not much there.

Ok so it was just a notable shift then.  Thanks.

In defence of Nylander he is tied for 2nd on the team in shots so hopefully he can start putting them behind Vasilevskiy

8 have ended up there already.  He's not invincible.  The hair-trigger pessimism from some (not you) is not justified.

He made some very timely saves last night, but, overall, he has looked beatable.

Agree. Have to stop the dumb penalties. I think JT is playing fine, just not on the offensive side yet. It's only the 2nd game. We need M&M to keep going and Willy and JT need to get it going.

Playoffs are such a huge flashpoint for so many fans that everything gets magnified.  He doesn't score for 2 games, total bum.  If he manages to score a game winner in OT or something, hero for the ages.  And so it goes

It's more hypothetical worry, but I guess the fear is always going to be that he suddenly becomes that unbeatable monster. 

We outscored Tampa 8-5.  Tampa had 12 power plays to our 10 (27 minutes to 20 minutes).

Our PP hasn't been successful (1/10) but has had some really good chances. 
Our PK wasn't good last night but ultimately is only at -1 in +/- which is pretty insane against a team as good as Tampa.

If there is anything to maybe be a bit more leery its that the PP also kind of scuffled down the stretch in April (17.7% vs. 27.3% on the season).  The Leafs need to find a way to capitalize on their chances.

They played a really good 19:50 of the first period.  They didn't have a very good middle 30 minutes and were fine the last 10.  So ultimately I think they have been the better team for 4.5 out of the 6 periods so far.
