Game Notes

TOR
•From NCAA free agent longshot to AHL starter and now to NHL backup, Kasimir Kaskisuo (6-1-1, 0.928 Save%, 2.13 GAA with the Marlies) will make his debut for the Leafs after Hutchinson was waived and loaned earlier this week
•In addition to losing the game, the Leafs lost Trevor Moore to a shoulder injury last night in an innocuous collision with Chris Wagner; he did not join the team on the road trip
•Auston Matthews (18 pts in 12 games) and William Nylander (12 pts in 12 games) continue to light the lamp, but the Leafs also continue to suffer from a dearth of depth scoring; Matthews' 14 goals accounts for 20.3% of the Leafs goals this season
•This second half of back-to-backs have not been good for the Leafs this season; this one kicks off a 6-game road trip that could be the breaking point for this season, OR the beginning of a beautiful team bonding experience WHO KNOWS

PIT
•The Penguins buckled down for life without their captain, Sidney Crosby (17GP 5G 12A) after he fell awkwardly in the game against Chicago last Saturday and aggravated a nagging injury to the point of finally undergoing the hernia surgery he had opted against this summer
•Pittsburgh comes home after getting stoned 2-1 in New Jersey the night before hoping for a better result against a floundering Leafs squad coming off its 4th loss in a row
•Though he peppered the net with 7 shots on goal, Evgeni Malkin was held off the scoreboard, breaking his 4-game point streak


Injuries

•Mitch Marner - High Ankle Sprain - Injured Reserve
•David Clarkson
•Nathan Horton
      
•Sidney Crosby - Sports Hernia - Injured Reserve
•Kris Letang - Lower Body - week to week
•Patric Hornqvist - Lower Body - Injured Reserve

Game Notes

BOS
•Halak gets the start (4-1-3) and is enjoying a 0.918 save percentage as if that stat actually matters; he looked back to see 4 goals behind him the last time he faced the Leafs in Toronto
•The Bruins have had plenty of time to stew over Tuesday's shootout loss to the Panthers after taking a 4-0 lead in the second and completely squandering it in the third; it was their 4th loss in a row so naturally there are calls to fire Bruce Cassidy and trade David Pastrnak they will be very motivated
•Guess who hasn't been scored on all season? That's right, Par Lindholm.

TOR
•Leafs cancelled practice on Thursday, opting for a closed door meeting as a team to put their heads together amidst early season adversity
•Dubas made up for the short notice by holding court for the beat media to elaborate on his evaluation of the team thus far
•To the chagrin of many dudes in sunglasses (as well as my delight), Nylander is a point per game in his last 11 games and already has more goals than his previous season
•If you take away the Tampa game, the Columbus game, the other night's Islander game, and any game he has given up a lot of goals, Andersen's save percentage would be super high! He'll be taking the first game of the upcoming back-to-back just to piss some of you off

•Jake Debrusk

Leafs Media Rumours / Report: Alexander Barabanov linked to the Leafs

6. A name to learn: Alexander Barabanov. The Russian left-shot winger will be 26 in June, and word is a few NHL executives will be going to see him in person. His 46 points in 58 games for St. Petersburg were 18th in the KHL last season. He’s at three points in the first 12 games this year, but his ice time is down from 15:26 to 13:19. There’s always a concern that when a player in Barabanov’s situation sees that drop, it’s because the organization feels it will lose him.

“We’re already looking for Toronto’s ‘Russian Whisperer,’” one of my overseas contacts joked. That’s Senior Director of Player Evaluation Jim Paliafito.

Marlies & Prospect Talk / Marlies & Growlers 2019-2020
« on: September 24, 2019, 11:37:05 AM »
Let's kick things off for the Marlies thread with The Athletic's Q&A with head coach Sheldon Keefe.

Quote
When there’s the amount of turnover in the Leafs roster as there was this summer, many of the players the Leafs signed are bound to be sent to the Marlies. What are the steps you take to bring them on board?

Last year we had a lot of continuity in the leadership. I think it’s important to have great leadership at the AHL level, without a doubt. But I also think with your young prospects, if the leadership doesn’t change, the young players will really struggle to take a step. No matter what, they’re going to be the younger guy to the more established player. But when there’s a leadership change though, it’s a great opportunity. Anyone who ends up coming down who’s played for us for a year or two, now all of a sudden they’re the most tenured people. The young people are going to have a bigger voice. I think that’s a really important piece in their development.

Why is it important to empower players sooner?

We ask a lot of our players. We ask a lot of their time and the standard we want them to bring every day. We’re trying to make them NHL players. We think that takes a lot of work and time. Sometimes what they think they need to do and what we think they need to do are two different things. So the more that we can involve them in that process and making them understand more of what we’re doing, why there’s an extra workout, why they’re not playing a game but we’re asking them to work with a strength coach instead. They need to know why we’re doing that. They can’t look at it as a punishment. It has to be part of the process. Over time, as they’re established and more important players to your team, you want them to be involved in the decision making, when we travel, when the days off are.
