Game Notes

CHI
•Cory Crawford (1-0-0, 1.00 GAA, .976 Sv%) will likely start for Chicago
•Goals have been easy to come by for Chicago so far, they are tied for 1st in the league (with the Leafs) with 15 goals in their first 2 games. They scored 10 against Pittsburgh in their season opener and another 5 against Columbus
•Patrick Kane and Ryan Hartman each have 6 points in those 2 games. Nick Schmaltz looked to be doing just fine as that lines centre, scoring 3 points in those 2 games. But an injury will keep him out of the line-up against the Leafs. I'm assuming Anisimov will get bumped back up to that line

TOR
•Andersen (2-0-0, 3.50 GAA, .903 Sv%) will likely start for the Leafs
•No word yet on if we see Moore and Rosen play again or if the rotation goes back to Fehr/Borgman

Injuries

•Nick Schmaltz - Upper Body - Out Monday
•Jordin Tootoo - Upper Body - Out indefinitely
•Michal Rozsival - Concussion - Out indefinitely
•Marian Hossa - Illness - Out for season
      
•Nathan Horton - Back - Out indefinitely
•Joffrey Lupul - Actually Injured - Out indefinitely

I hope the Leafs can shore up their defence.  To have what happened Saturday night versus the Rangers cannot repeat itself against a team like the 'Hawks, with Chicago's prowess. 

It won't be easy scoring the goals as it was in the previous two games, but fully expecting the Leafs to fire on in the offensive zone, and give Crawford & co., a few headaches.

GO LEAFS GO!

a compromise--he scores/assists/lights up the Leafs for 4 or 5, but the Leafs score more :)

From practice:

Fehr goes back in for Moore. The 3rd pairing might be Borgman-Rosen as Carrick is a little banged up.

Chicago's back-up, Anton Forsberg, will start as they want to use Crawford tomorrow against Montreal. Forsberg was previously with Columbus and has put up very good numbers in the AHL the past 3 years (.923 Sv% in 126 AHL games) but struggled in his limited NHL showings (0.879 Sv% in 10 NHL games). The idea that they want to use their back-up against the highest scoring team in the league (7.50 GF/P) and their starter against the lowest scoring team in the league (1.0 GF/P) is interesting.

Ugh, another flukey goal. Pass behind the net bounces off Andersen's dropped stick. Gardiner could have put some more mustard on that pass though.

Sloppy defense but I would appreciate if the broadcasters wouldn't refer to the puck hitting the goal stick and going right to Panik as the Leafs losing a puck battle.

Leafs have looked good in the offensive zone and Chicago's goalie might be no good. This could still be another high scoring one.

I know Reilly is still young and hasn't really had a good enough partner, yet, but I have to admit I'm not happy with his progression.  I'm warming up to the idea of a Reilly for Trouba like trade (knowing full well it would probably take a + from our end).

Man, Chicago is on a mission.  I'm hoping the Leafs can slowly take the game over.  I noticed last year that some times when they would get down early, they would try and stop the bleeding first and then slowly start to dictate the play.  It will be a good test for this team if they can do that against this Chicago team.

I really don't think that the Leafs were dominated like TSN described. They had lots of chances to score this could easily be 2-2 or 2-1.

I thought the first 10 they were puck watching a bit, but then after the second goal and the penalty kill, they started playing a little more aggressively.

I can see why they called it, but it seemed like a push as much as a hold, there was very little contact.

Seemed like Hyman tried to push his hip to throw off his balance as he went for the puck.

This is one of those games where they are getting the bounces are we aren't.  Marner was in a prime position there if the puck had come to him like it came to Panik.

Brown has really been good this year.  Good on the PK in the 1st game.  Outside of Matthews/Nylander going cheat code mode I think he has been the best forward.

Was surprised to see that. Besides a shift at the end of the first and another long sequence of them running around the Hawks net before a PP (2nd?), I didn't think they were creating that much tonight -- mostly one-and-done rushes, I thought. Guess I wasn't watching what they were giving up... which evidently wasn't much.

Hawks really eliminated the Leafs' passing game and were so well organized in their own zone (for the most part) the dump and chase wasn't really clicking either... nice to see the Leafs gut out win when they're not playing their game.

Post by: herman on October 10, 2017, 09:18:22 AM
I was deliberately watching for Martin and his work on the ice.

I missed this one:
Honestly, that's a great heads up move.

Another instance was when Fehr and Brown forechecked the puck carrier around the net and forced a turnover, Martin was coming around the other side and had a chance to really bury the guy into next week and elected to let him pass as he no longer had the puck.

He finished safe (if uncomfortable) hits on the forecheck and was generally quick to the puck to force quick decisions by the defense.

And Leivo at the pressbox...

As much as I prefer Leivo over Matt Martin (and I really do)...

The fourth line is playing about 6 mins per game at 5-on-5 while the other lines take the majority of the ice-time.  If anything, I'd like to see the Matthews line play MORE at 5-on-5.  That Matthews and Nylander aren't seeing closer to 20 mins a game is kinda disappointing. 

So, with the thought that Martin or Leivo would see 4-5 mins @ 5-on-5 ... I'm perfectly fine with having Martin there in case things get out of hand.  His results last year were largely driven by having AHLers as center men most of the year.  Ben Smith was awful, and the goat was only slightly better (mostly due to percentages).  Now that he has NHL calibre centermen you can see that while he doesn't help a whole lot, he really doesn't hurt you.

And yes, I do agree that Leivo would probably "help" more.  In games like last nights and against the Rangers, where the other team doesn't really have anyone you have to worry about getting out of hand- I see no reason Leivo shouldn't get in there.  Against the Jets (etc), Martin over Leivo is perfectly fine with me.

Yeah, this is basically where I'm at. I've accepted that Martin will never be a permanent press box fixture, and he probably wouldn't be on most NHL teams really. But with our depth there's no reason for him to play in every single game. Babs seems comfortable rotating the 4C and 6D right now even after convincing wins. Why not throw Leivo into a game once a week just to keep him fresh? Especially against teams like Chicago who really doesn't have any toughness to their game.

Post by: Bullfrog on October 10, 2017, 01:50:06 PM
That's kind of where I'm at. I don't think putting in Leivo on the 4th line will have a significant impact on the results, it's more that I think 6 minutes on the 4th line is better than 0 while sitting in the box. And since Martin only plays even strength, it's not like the team loses anything by sitting him.

It was neat to some of the overtime combinations for the first time:

Matthews-Nylander-Gardiner
Kadri-Komorov-Reilly
Marner-Marleau-Zaitzev
Bozak-JVR-Reilly
Moore-Brown-Gardiner

Lots of weapons there 2F-1D. What I like is that everyone is pretty responsible in their defensive ice coverage now, making sure they're between their man and the net. Good, hard 30-40 second shifts and off.  Only odd man rush I think was when JVR fell down in the O-zone. I think we'll do better O/T-Shootout this year. Precious points to be had there.

It was neat to some of the overtime combinations for the first time:

Matthews-Nylander-Gardiner
Kadri-Komorov-Reilly
Marner-Marleau-Zaitzev
Bozak-JVR-Reilly
Moore-Brown-Gardiner

Those weren't the combos (Komarov didn't play in OT and Moore was of course a healthy scratch so you're mistaking him for someone else). It went:

Kadri-Brown-Rielly
Matthews-Nylander-Gardiner
Marleau-Marner-Zaitsev
Bozak-JVR-Rielly
Kadri-Brown-Rielly
Matthews-Nylander-Gardiner

Thankfully, no Komarov or Hyman or Hainsey (/Hunwick) like we sometimes saw last year.

And yes, I do agree that Leivo would probably "help" more.  In games like last nights and against the Rangers, where the other team doesn't really have anyone you have to worry about getting out of hand- I see no reason Leivo shouldn't get in there.  Against the Jets (etc), Martin over Leivo is perfectly fine with me.

Yeah, this is basically where I'm at. I've accepted that Martin will never be a permanent press box fixture, and he probably wouldn't be on most NHL teams really. But with our depth there's no reason for him to play in every single game. Babs seems comfortable rotating the 4C and 6D right now even after convincing wins. Why not throw Leivo into a game once a week just to keep him fresh? Especially against teams like Chicago who really doesn't have any toughness to their game.

I really like Martin's honest attitude and work ethic but I also agree 100% with what you guys are saying.  Leivo/Fehr/Brown would be a decent 3rd line on most teams let alone 4th line.

Well... I got three of the five right. My post wasn't meant to be the exact players on the ice for the overtime, just that it's cool to see what we can throw out there.
