Plekanec is likely going up against the Bergeron unit. I guess Kadri's suspension kinda forced Babcock's hand as he can't put Bozak against them and he'll want to keep Matthews away from him too. Still, that match-up probably isn't going to be pretty.

There might be something to playing Plekanec more to get him engaged and to get his opponents enraged. He was averaging 16+ minutes before the trade and then was dialed down to 11.

MLHS noted this earlier, but Moore knows how to play short minutes. He'll probably turn it over a bit more but understands his role.

I also don't think the end of game lineup looks like what they're practicing with here. Nylander has not broken through yet but has looked good up the middle.

That's the spirit!

I wouldn't put Nylander at C either. Friggin Kadri, you ramrod! We need you.

It's a better lineup with Komarov out and Moore in. Especially when you consider the massive role Komarov was miscast in. It has to be the Matthews/Nylander/HYMAN show tonight. Yes HYMAN earned those capital letters.

Seeing turtle necks name there that high up does trigger the gag reflect though. Considering Kadri's out I don't hate these lines.

Komarov finally out! -- thank the guy who bodychecked him.

I predict crappy Plekanec to finally get a goal as a Leaf cause Marner will set him up.

That 4th line has speed to burn, hopefully they can chip in with some offense, I'd like to have Dominic Moore show Babcock he should have been playing all along.  Then when Kadri comes back, maybe we sit Plekanec.

I would have liked to see Marner and Brown get swapped on these lines. For the same reasons that I've brought up before, whoever gets matched up against Bergeron is going to get caved in regardless. May as well try to put our offensive weapons on other lines to outscore them that way.

Moore always seem to have some extra punch when inserted back into lineup. His wingers are fantastic. Just go to the net and put your stick down, suits him perfectly.

Oh yeah, Moore can still skate despite his age.  Johnsson and Kapanen are two fast and tenacious wingers, I think they'll compliment Moore nicely, that line should be able to have scoring chances.  Hope it goes as I'm thinking, they could cause fits out there.

Game day... please be competitive.

Hockey Gods if your listening that was a complete BS start to last game, ridiculous bounces, no more of that! Hard to start a game at 4-0.



I agree 100%.  The Hockey Gods owe us big time after that mess in Boston.  Lets hope that was them punishing Boston and there fans with a two game tease.

Frederik Andersen is "up there"?  ;)

He does need to pull himself together and have a strong game.  Unlike his last 6 weeks or so.  :P  That doesn't happen, and all our fussing about lines doesn't matter.
