Matthews out, so there goes the hype theme.

I don't really care for broken Auston Matthews.  Time for him to get back to simply dominant Auston Matthews.

Jozy Altidore taking every second of that in.  Nice to see.  He has been really happy in Toronto.

I really dislike constantly having to listen to Jim Hughson for Leafs games....this is like 5 games in a row with him.

This has sort of reached a point where I think the team not telling us what the issue is is a bad thing for the fandom.

Yeah, that was probably not a great goal.

Nylander slotting in for Matthews on the Hyman/Brown line though.

Kadri hooked down and somehow that isn't a penalty.  What the heck did this team do to the refs?

mirtle: When I was on the Leafs western trip, there were some Oilers fans on the flight. They were calling their backup "Croissant."

I don't think it was a term of endearment.

If Auston never reaches his potential because of injuries he sustained from players taking advantage of him, then the Leafs should ask for some of their money back on the Matt Martin contract.

What do you want Martin to do, KO Morgan Reilly?  ::)

He's paid to protect Matthews.  Reilly needs to learn a lesson.

Tinfoil hat time, but about 10 games ago Babcock was asked about a penalty incident in a game and his response was "I thought it was fine, but the other awful calls weren't."

It took me by surprise because usually, coaches treat any criticism of officiating very carefully/diplomatically.

The Leafs have barely had a call since and they routinely get the shaft from officials.

It's probably just coincidence though, officials are getting worse, not better.

It was an accident plain and simple. The whole line and D were clueless on that play it actually was a 3 on 0 before they scored. All running around out of position and to boot the collision. We don't even know if it was from last night or the injury before or if it was re aggravated from the hit. Unfortunate.

I get line matching but it seems like the Leafs are reacting to line changes both at home on the road.  If we are supposed to be a good team maybe teams should be trying to line match us and not the other way around.
