On another note, I managed to grab some free tickets to the game tonight.

I believe the Leafs have lost the last 5 or 6 games I attended. I'm going to commit the gambler's fallacy and assume that means they're due for a win.

They lose tonight and it's all on you.

If they lose, I think that will constitute definitive proof that my beer stained Antropov jersey is bad luck.

So what happens to Plekanec when Kadri comes back on Saturday?

I'm hoping he goes back to the fourth with Kapanen and Johnsson.

People keep forgetting that Plekanec played pretty well with those two when Komarov was injured late in the season. The weak link was Komarov, not Plekanec.

That said, if he shuts down Bergeron's line tonight and appears to be getting under his skin. I would understand if Babcock kept things rolling and stuck Kadri on a souped up fourth line Saturday.

Plekanec on the 2nd line is entirely for matchup purposes against the Bergeron line.  On Saturday, the game shifts back to Boston where they control the matchups (Bergeron will be put out against Matthews) and having Plekanec out there for defensive purposes over 30-goal scorer Kadri with Marner/Marleau doesn't make much sense against Boston's other lines.

Now, when the series shifts back to Toronto for Game 6, then you can consider if Plekanec is able to do a good enough job against Bergeron, loading up that 4th line (if you want to call it that- it might be our 2nd line next year) might make more sense to expose Boston's depth.

I like your moxie.

My lucky Canadian Tire jersey will cancel yours out, leaving them to win or lose entirely on their own merits.

Great to see the win on Monday but the Leafs still need to tighten up. They were scrambling I thought at times and on the PK they have to do a better job on Pastarnak. He should of had 2 goals for sure. If they can do that I think they win. Let's do it boys.

The PK is a huge concern.  Leafs only had to kill one PK last game (an unofficial PK happened late in the game when it was 4 on 4 but Boston pulled Rask to go 5 on 4).  If Boston gets 3-4 PP tonight, I can easily see 2 goals on it unless the Leafs improve.  Boston has WAY too many chances on the PP, they move the puck around so effortlessly.  Leafs need to somehow improve their PK and Andersen has to play like he did in Nov-December.

Leafs lost both games 1 and 2 when I wore my Matthews jersey.  Last game I was so tired and sweaty from clearing ice on my driveway that I didn't put on the jersey cause I didn't want to stink it up with my sweat, so I was wearing a green sweater.  I'll go back to the green sweater for tonight, then the Leafs won't have to rely on their own merits but instead have the power of the sweater backing them.

I think Kapanen is due for a goal.  He's had a few chances this series and keeps getting unlucky with posts.

There's no problem tonight. The boys have it all under control. At least that's what I keep telling myself.

I agree on the PK. They should add Reilly and Gardiner to the players on the PK.  Reduce Polak and Hainseys minutes there.  Reilly and Gardiner can take more minutes overall.
