Greg Millen's making a guest appearance on Columbus' broadcast during intermission?

I can't escape these idiots!

To step off the Clarkson discussion for a second, the Leafs actually played a pretty reasonable period and Reimer looked solid for not playing in 5 weeks.

Although, beating up on Clarkson aside, I think the Leafs played pretty well that period and could easily be up 2-0.

I'm not going to say that Clarkson is a bust but I don't see him improving. I don't recall who  he's line mates were in NJ but you kind a wonder if they helped inflate he's numbers and I find he's hitting is meh.

And the Leafs come out flat in the 2nd.

Was Phil's skate not totally ON the ice there?
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

I see Reimer hasn't picked up that x-ray vision upgrade yet.

It's great when the Leafs screen their own goalie.   Good job Ranger.

Defensive specialist McClement covering... nobody on that goal.  Anytime Randy wants to stop putting him on to lose defensive zone faceoffs with the second line.

Also anytime Clarkson wants to stop playing like a third or fourth line AHLer would also be great. He is stupendously bad - every single aspect of his game is just awful. It's like he's wearing blinders and playing with someone else's equipment.  But sure, send Holland down so Clarkson HAS to play on the second line. Perfect.

Well, Millen actually had point there.  Smith needs to stick with his man or at least block the shot there, not flamingo it.

That goal was 100 percent Clarkson. Game after game, he gets the puck in his own end and just gives it away without looking. Jesus.

Particularly at the end of a long scramble that is just totally unacceptable.
