Game Notes

TOR

No real surprises with the Leafs line-up, other than Matthews and Nylander being split up once again to create more of a 3-line attack
Sparks is expected to dress as the Leafs back-up as Michael Hutchinson is away because his wife is having a baby

BOS
Rask (27-13-5, 2.48 GAA, .912 Sv%) will likely start for the Bruins
Boston will likely scratch veteran forward David Backes
The 3 injured Bruins will likely all start the series on the IR, but might make appearances later on

In the old days we used to try to muster 100 "Go Leafs Go" posts before the 1st game of the playoffs.

That's probably out of reach, but then again a 3-0 TBL lead seemed to have been, too....

So:

Embrace the underdog role (like Columbus did last night) and steal away home ice advantage in this series with a win tonight boys!!!

Its funny. Their motive for playing the last month or two of hockey was to essentially win home ice advantage leading up to this series, and now they can do it in one game tonight with a win.

I like what Ennis has done for the Leafs this season so wouldn't mind seeing him in the lineup for a veteran presence.  Having said that, there really is no obvious spot unless there's an injury and he has minimal playoff experience so I guess we're all good.

Kadri, calm down, don't let them get to you.

The way he talked about it to Sportsnet (https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/maple-leafs-jake-muzzin-looks-elevate-game-parenthood-awaits/) makes it seem like he's willing to miss the birth if it absolutely comes to that:

Quote
Unless, of course, Muzzin is bolting from the rink to attend the birth of he and wife Courtneys daughter. Shes only due sometime around Game 7, but Muzzin assures that the house is in order and a contingency plan is in place.

Friends and family are so close that we need help or were in a sticky situation, we have it, Muzzin says. Were going to have [the birth] scheduled, so well hopefully plan it so I dont have to miss.

It's a little different than Hutch's situation since he pretty much just re-joined the team last week and was probably told by the Marlies that he could have had the time off if he was with them. And of course he's probably not going to be playing anyway.

If we don't play the 4th line, I am happy with any of the top three lines. Let Boston chase line matching if they want. I would also suggest that we never give our 4th line a defensive zone faceoff.

Last time Leafs had this many days off was out of the bi-week and they exploded out of it. Babs said today the last three days have been great. For the first time this season the game isn't just two points towards at least a 100-pt season, but a whopping 25% share towards a Round 1 series win. Stakes are up, passions up.

Unless there's some event I'm unaware of, I'm betting I'll still feel very optimistic. I'll also be annoyed, because I'm sure my 9-year old will be begging me to use the X-box to play Fortnite, but that's neither here-nor-there.

In truth, (perhaps I'm hoping), I don't think the Leafs are intimidated by the Bruins like a lot of fans are. Tavaras's, Marner's, and Matthews's self-confidence must be through the roof. I think the Leafs are going to win the series and I think Matthews is going to be the reason.

I think the 2013 still effect fans perception of the Bruins, but for the team its about as relevant as the 1972 Bruins beating the Leafs.

The call was with Jeff Blair.  After Blair corrected him that Krejci is not young (but not mentioning that Krejci is a forward), the guy corrected himself to say that he meant Torey Krug.  Krug turns 28 tomorrow.

So, basically, only one of the three "young defensemen" that are going to be the difference in the series is actually a young defenseman, and only two are even defensemen at all.

2) Gardiners health... if the game vs Mtl was any indication, he is still having significant back issues
3) Gauthier being pinned in his end and Bruins quickly throwing the Bergeron line out there

Other than that, I'm optimistic for tonight!

I like what Ennis has done for the Leafs this season so wouldn't mind seeing him in the lineup for a veteran presence.  Having said that, there really is no obvious spot unless there's an injury and he has minimal playoff experience so I guess we're all good.

The Leafs have enough offense in their top 9 that they dont need Ennis and his bad possession numbers.  The 4th line will be limited in ice time and Browns defensive play is worth more in this series

A smart one, unless it's game 7 or you're trailing in the game. Either you put your 4th line out there, or you simply never use the 4th line ever.

Actually it wasn't smart. Immediately the play went the other way and Leafs were hemmed in their own zone. Instead with either Tavares or Matthews in the Ozone against a tired 4th line you might get an offensive chance. You don't have to defend every move Babcock makes especially when it's obviously wrong.

I agree with him. It was a stupid move by Babs. He started the 4ty line a minute or so earlier in the D zone. Bruins go with Bergeron, Freddie gets the puck Babs changes the line to JT's. Next stoppage is an icing against the Bruins 4th and Babs throws out our 4th. Not smart. You have to try and take advantage of the line match ups. He didn't, 4th line lost the puck and got hemmed in our zone. Sorry that's all on Babs there.

This next 5 minutes is critical.  If we can hold them off and get it under 10, the ice begins to tilt a bit against the B's.

Mission accomplished.  Now win the next 5 minutes.

I think he's been fine. A few bone head moves but overall good. Muzz and Zaitsev have been solid.

Muzzin kind of shows Zaitsev how he can play to be effective: keep the gap, play the puck and make time to go for the easy pass. The two of them taking the bulk of the match up really frees up our attacking D to facilitate zone time for our forwards.

Kapanen is not the best playmaking winger on the team, but let me just say what an excellent decision this was to go against the grain on the pass. Perfect positioning by Johnsson and Matthews to force Carlo into a no-win situation. I think if it was any other shooter, Johnsson might have tried to chip this up on the way to the net (what a highlight thatd have been), but you have to respect Matthews shot (I think Matthews was trying for tip, otherwise he wouldve ripped it high). Rask makes this save by virtue of hope alone.

Obviously loved the game.

Key points for me:
Team discipline
Fantastic ice time distribution (Babs)
A great game by the 3rd line
A Nylander goal
Babcock was great
Zaitzev/Muzzin emergence
Reilly ice time

Leafs doing the right thing by not caring about the non-calls. Just keep trucking because they're working well.
Composure, unlike last year, is so important.

Cassidy commented on this before the game and it's something Mitch has been doing forever in a variety of ways.

At the beginning of the year, he add this L cut on entries, and what Marner does really well is timing his cut into the middle to coincide with the backchecking forward meeting the gapping up defenseman. This frees up a slip pass to a linemate coming into the zone with speed (hi, Rielly) while his running mate basically drags two other players to the net (Hyman).

STILL BASKING IN THE AFTER-GLOW of this game. What a victory. In Boston. Man, they played a near perfect game top to bottom, forwards getting back with active sticks, D-men passing and Mitchy! On cloud nine. On more thing that's different from last year: Mitch Marner: penalty killer.

I filled up my gas tank yesterday and the pump stopped at $42. This is not a joke. It all makes sense now.

If Marleau falters, then maybe but he also played well last night.

I wonder what Jack Edwards had to say about that hit? Something along the lines of Moore and his entire family being shot I'm sure.

I agree, actually. Though I haven't been as down on him as others have been.

I know Marleau has struggled but I really thought all along he'd bring come playoff time. I liked his game last night. Somewhat lost on the Nylander goal was Marleau's work behind the Leafs net getting it up to Naz.

Chara sure didn't think Moore was going to take a run there. You don't catch Chara like that very often. Clean hit.
