Babcock said they might be looking for yet another goalie.  If Andersen can't play tomorrow I expect they'll go and get one because they want Kaskisuo back down working on his game.

That really wouldn't make any sense if Andersen is only going to be out for one more game. They already sent Kaskisuo back down to the Marlies and they have a game tonight. So he'll probably play in that one and then if Andersen can't go tomorrow he'll be recalled to back-up Hutch again.

Sparks biggest issue on that play is he appears to turn his head and take it off the side of the helmet more than the top/forehead. Those helmets are designed to take shots straight on not from the side.

He's played two games, got lit up in the first, and had very few challenging saves to make last night. Huge sample size there.

Hilariously Sparks also got Shellac'd and posted a shutout the next game. My how we have short memories.

Like I said above,Sparks appears to take it off the side of the helmet/temple of the helmet. Hutchinson took it square in the forehead. Those helmets are meant for head on impacts.

I figure that they're being extra cautious.  Since Hutch just scored a shut-out, why not just give Andersen another 3 days of rest.

Regardless of how you feel about him, the Leafs need Gardiner at 100% for playoffs. If he has to sit for a week or two weeks or a month right now to make sure that happens then so be it. We have like half a dozen other defencemen who can play a shift.

Also on the injury front: Kadri skated for about 30 minutes for the first time today since his concussion, but left the ice before the team practice began. A good sign but not an indication he'll be playing soon.

Agree. I think it's time to play Holl for a few games to see how his development has come along.

Sounds like the back spasms weren't getting better so the Leafs are shutting him down to get him as healthy as possible for the playoffs.

You have to call up Rosen in this instance, right?  I'm not thrilled with the idea of going back to a lineup with Hainsey, Zaitsev and Oz in it.  I'm really meh toward Holl so that's what I would sooner see anyway.

I didn't know he was hurt. No to Marincin. maybe it's time to see Lilypad? Dubas said a while back he'd get a shot this year.

I believe this year won't count as a pro year while in the AHL because of his age.  If he played in the NHL, it would count as a pro year.

Man aren't the Leafs quiet on the injury front, what is going on with everyone? How bad is Jake's back, will he play again this season?  As someone with a bad back, SWT therapy and great chiropractor should have someone on his feet within days, not weeks, so to me it sounds like a disk issue. Keyhole surgery is basically now a walk in and walk out procedure.
Babcock whispers that Dermott will be back sooner than Jake, but how soon?  What about the state of Rosen?  How badly is Kapi concussed? Hey Leafs we wants some info.  Inquiring minds, want to know!!

Why all this secrecy, we feed on this stuff.

I was told quite vociferously a month ago, that if they kept playing like the bottom 5 team they have been since the new year, the Leafs would be in jeopardy of losing their playoff spot to the upstart Montreal Canadiens.

You can slice the schedule any way you want.  If you had started with the beginning of Jan as opposed to the end of Jan (a larger sample size) the Leafs are 16-12-3 or a 92 point pace.

A handful of updates from the past few days:

On the Saturday Headlines they said Gardiner wasn't progressing as quickly as the team originally hoped. No other real update there but there hasn't been any positive news. Dermott is "much closer" to returning. Also mentioned that Rosen is about a week away if the team wants to look at him as a call-up.

@LeafsPR just posted that Gauthier will be out for at least the next two games with a foot injury.

On a line with Kadri and Marleau at practice, so that'll likely mean he's ready to return.

I don't want to be over optimistic but Zaitsev and Muzz have looked pretty good together lately. I hope they have started to gel. I'm not counting on Gardiner being back for the playoffs just yet. That would def change things up tho if he did.

Yeah, Babcock probably just wants to determine who the #7 defenceman is going into playoffs. If Rosen impresses in his little audition then he jumps ahead of Marincin/Oz/Holl and becomes first in line if an injury hits.

I think you're both right here.  I think the lack of puck-moving guys in the lineup, and its effect over the past couple of weeks, has Rosen being that back-up guy, as long as he doesn't shit the bed in his likely very protected minutes audition.

The Rosen thing is interesting to me. Is the consensus that he's played himself into the 1st alternate role due to his development through the season, or that Marincin, Holl and Ozighanov have played themselves out of it?

Reason I ask, is because most of Rosen's NHL appearances to date, including preseason work, can only be generously termed as "somewhat lacking".

He has literally only played 4 games with the Leafs and has played 116 games with the Marlies.  By all accounts, he has become an extremely reliable all-around defenseman for the Marlies.

In 17/18 his preseason performance was good enough to earn himself a spot in the line-up to start the season. I won't pretend to remember how well he performed but he did have a 58% CF in 4 regular season games, but was 1-3 in GF. In the 18/19 preseason he only played 3 games but the defence line-up was also 100% set already and his waiver status meant he was likely going back down instead of Marincin/Holl, so there wasn't much to play for.

But for what it's worth it sure sounds like he's emerged as one of the best defencemen in the entire AHL this season.

I have watched quite a few Marlies games and Rosen is ready, great skater, has poise with the puck, which is what I would like to say about a few existing Leaf D-Men.
