Sort of sound reasoning, in a weird way.

Simmonds should have come out to handle that. We need Foligno on the ice.

Not that a concussion is good but I'm hoping that's all it was as there could've been so much more.

That's great news - still don't expect him back anytime soon but so good to hear.

I don't want to pin this all on Malhotra and I don't like the idea of constantly changing assistant coaches every year, but if this does end up costing us a playoff series win this early I'm not sure how you don't cut bait there.
It just can't be that bad, it can't. If the Leafs give up as much as they get on the PP someone needs to be held accountable and I can't see it as a personnel problem.
Malholtra will be fired if the PP doesn’t come alive in the playoffs.
Despite the shorty, the PP looked a lot better tonight. They had good possession and chances. Let's see how it goes Sat. The PK looks really good though.
On to the next one.

Exactly. That's about all Simmonds has to offer at this point, sad to say.

Well Foligno was on the ice right after with Perry so he decided to take care of it.. What's Simmonds supposed to do...jump over the boards?

Umm, Leafs were the "home" team...last change and all. They could have put anyone out there.

Well Keefe put Foligno out so mute point.

The point is he should have put Simmonds out there to risk breaking his hand on a helmut or visor.

Different goalie, same result.  Campbell played very well ... but was 0/2 on breakaways.  Good, but not good enough.

Whether or not he was at fault, Sandin was on for both goals.  We might see Dermott back in.

OTOH the PP looks like it has no chance if Rielly is QBing it.  And Rielly was at his best tonight.

Agree. I didn't like the 2nd goal on him. He missed the poke check and left the top of the net open.

Sandin >> Rielly

Thornton was actually the one that gave the puck away that led to the short handed goal.   Not sure why they had him on the PP

It will be interesting to see what Keefe does. The PP looked good with Sandin on it despite the shorty which was more on Joe. Sandin did what he could and truth be told, Jack kind of blew it. He didn't look good on it. The PP was terrible with Rielly. Nash did nothing to impress me which I guess is a good thing. He's terrible on the faceoffs. I think we may see Engvall get in if Tavares can't go, which seems pretty likely at this point.

The save on Marner

Price can be a difference maker
