Nice chip from Gauthier.  Rather than just hammer the puck around the boards he got the puck to an open space for Hyman to dump the puck.

I noticed that too. Doesn't seem like much but it's a calm play that means the difference between getting the puck out and a possible turnover.

On that 2-on-1 for Hyman and Martin, I suspect Hyman was shooting for a pad-rebound to Martin for the open net. Gibson's toe changed the angle though.

The Hermanator with an astute observation.

Intriguing subplot: will Randy get toaster-stumped again? Or will he finally get that buttered bagel with black coffee...

Ope, get ready for the Christina Aguilera - I mean Martina Ortiz Luis show.
Meh-YUTE.

Andrew Cogliano playing in his 735th consecutive game @_@ (5th all-time)

Wow, Getzlaf and Perry were drafted at 19 and 24 respectively. Either a deep draft or late-bloomers.

1897
Leafs pre-game. Nice to Joe Bowen again.

looks like reddit shut down the stream links... anyone know where we find em now or have one for this game?

If it's a 7:30pm start the Reddit stream will appear somewhere after 7pm.
www.atdhe.to works in a pinch.

Gibson vs Andersen. Our third 'Trade for the California Backup to Be Our #1 Goalie' finally breaks through. In the salary-cap world that's really where you can get one, outside of drafting them. Montreal went through it with Price and Halak, Pittsburgh now dealing with Murray and Fleury.

It's unfortunate that the Habs didn't trade Price at the time.

Weren't a lot of Habs fans super upset that they traded Halak instead of Price too? Or am I remembering that wrong?

Because that was right after his huge playoff run.

You are 100% correct.  There was a large contingent of fans that wanted to keep Halak and trade Price.  The narrative was that Price couldn't handle the Montreal pressure and would never flourish there.

And Vancouver went through it as well with Luongo and Schneider. But got rid of them both! We did it with two prospects, but chose the wrong one (Pogge/Rask). I think to keep the younger one makes more fiscal sense but poses more risk. They're usually not as developed but they may surpass the older one. They won big with Price.

Hendrick tweeted they like Gauthier's size, faceoffs and penalty killing. Gets him in the lineup.

Party's over Willie, we need you at center. Start working on your face-offs!
With the injury to Bozie and Auston cracking 20 minutes for the first time last game, we'll probably see Babs continue to raise his ice-time incrementally.

Just thinking Frankie will probably get his shot with the next injury on the D. Marincin's been the only one so far.

Aboat the time he stood out in the cold trying to complete his Esso Powerplay stacks!



40 years later and the Esso at Don Mills and Shepherd still the same.

The ice-time rises for the Austonishing One. Cracks 20 minutes for first time in his young NHL career.

Sooo satisfying after a bunch of OT/SO losses.
