Once Matthews scored #59, I was thinking how much it would suck if he didn't get to 60.

I didn't have to think for very long.

So you've got to pretty much dress the marlies against Boston no? Why risk anything. There's nothing to play for.

There's a few personal milestones, but, nothing from a team perspective. Definitely going to rest some key guys.

60 in 73 is pretty ridiculous.

67 goal pace. Absolutely ridiculous.

If he started the season healthy, he'd have 70. What a season.
I think lots forget that he scored 1 in his first 6 and he didn't play the first 3 games..remarkable year. So 1 in the first Leafs 9 games.

7 in his first 17 (the team's first 20). 53 in his next 56 (the team's next 61). Amazing.

Also, only 5 players have more total goals than Matthews' 44 even-strength goals.

I'm assuming Marner is one, maybe Nylander looking to hit the PPG mark.

Those are the two that are most in sight. Tavares has an outside shot at an 80 point season (4 points back) and 30 goals (3 back), Rielly for 70 (3 points). Spezza is a longshot for his 1000th career point (5 points - not impossible, but not likely, either). There might be some other, less prominent ones, too.

I know you want to avoid the risk of injury obviously but there's also probably something to be said about getting in a pre-playoff game before the real ones count.

Sure, though neither team will likely have much to play for. Might not be a super competitive game, in which case, is there a benefit? For some players, probably. For others, the extra rest will be more helpful.

Depends how Thursday goes.  A Bruins win and Tampa loss means Bruins can still catch 3rd place going into Friday's games

But if I'm them, I'd rather face the Canes without Freddie then the Leafs. I think Friday's game will have little meaning to either team.

But if you're the Leafs would you rather face Boston than Tampa?  Will both teams be trying to lose? LOL

Tampa's last two games are against Columbus and NYI. They'll win at least one of those. I'm confident of that.

You're probably right, but that's why they play the games, you never know.
