Game 6 - Toronto Maple Leafs @ Boston Bruins L6-2

(1/92) > >>

Bleeding Blue & White:
full preview:
Phil Kessel is tired of talking about how he struggles against the Boston Bruins.  He’s certainly doing just fine for the red-hot Toronto Maple Leafs this season.

The NHL’s top scorer, Kessel looks to continue his torrid start Thursday night when the Maple Leafs open a four-game trip against his former club.

Kessel spent his first three seasons in Boston (2-4-0), and led the Bruins with a career-high 36 goals in 2008-09 before being acquired by Toronto (4-0-1). He’s struggled to show that scoring punch for the Leafs when facing the Bruins, notching two goals and four assists in 12 meetings.

Ha RT @rayferrarotsn: Assuming Leafs have called up Nazem Kadri..he's sitting across the aisle from me on flt to Boston

I'm guessing Orr gets back into action.

Is Kadri ready to go?

If MacArthur can go, I hope they do something like this..

Lupul - Bozak - Kessel
MacArthur - Grabovski - Kulemin
Lombardi - Steckel - Frattin
Brown - Dupuis - Rosehill

Gunnarsson - Phaneuf
Liles - Schenn
Gardiner - Franson


If Mac can't go, I think they need to call up Kadri. Either way, it will be a different line-up tonight I think. One of Komisarek or Schenn has to sit. My guess is Komisarek, because I think Schenn will come out of his funk quicker.

EDIT: I guess they already called up Kadri.

You mean Armstrong ?
