WAYNEINIONA:
Good game. Came down to a goaltending duel and Miller won.

Kessel Run:

Factor Lombardi and that's some cheddar, 13 mil?

Well if Lombardi were healthy he would more than likely be in the lineup.

Deebo:
I don't think 3 strong pre-season games is enough to take Aulie's spot on the team. I think Aulie  earned a chance to start the year with the Leafs last season.

I think Gardiner will start in the AHL and will get a chance with the Leafs sometime during the year.

Sarge:

Yeah... I think I agree with that. I remember two years ago a lot of people (myself included) was gaga over Stalberg. Not that I don't think Gardiner (or Stalberg for that matter) is worth being excited about but my point is I'm not sure what a handful of pre-season games will tell you. Someone is going to absolutely implode on the blue-line (or get dealt) I feel if Gardiner is to secure a roster spot - regardless of how he plays.   

Bender:
Just watched the game in 6. Looks like the Leafs had the better chances, but just couldn't stuff them. Looks like the Sabres game plan again is to rely on Miller.

Reims looks very solid, stats looked good. Nice to see Gardiner play well. Looks like it just didn't go our way tonight, because it seemed like both teams stacked up pretty well against each other.
