Well that was disappointing.  I would have loved to have seen

Kadri-Matthews-Kapanen

Double-shifted along with the Tavares line in the 3rd.
I would like to see this happen because we need Kadri to get going. Like I said in another thread, Marleau is miscast on Matthews line.

Kadri's line dominated possession tonight, Matthews' line got dominated. One has workers and no finish, the other can't cycle but will pounce on opportunities when they're there. I wouldn't mind seeing those lines mixed up a little:

Kadri-Matthews-Brown
Marleau-Lindholm-Kapanen

I wouldn’t mind this either.

Didn't like that high stick on Hyman by Guenzel.  Should have been a penalty by any other name.

Also, the disallowed goal.  Well, at least they scored but it wasn't legit.

Overall disappointed with the Leafs performance  in this game.  Pittsburgh little-thinged them very efficiently, especially Matthews, and kept the Leafs top forwards 'off balance' so to speak.

Another things is they've surrendered the first goal so many times this year. Their luck is going to run out unless they start scoring first.

Well, my prediction about Kadri scoring came true...

On a night that our high power offense gets shut down, both Martin and Komarov score for NYI.

The truncated power play was the only one the Leafs got. The extra 6 minutes in power play time that the Leafs should have got would have probably made a big difference. Pittsburgh came to play and only managed one, non-empty net goal.

Was a shit game all around. Moving on.

And it wasn't even a full PP. Hey the Leafs played like crap and were outplayed for the most part, basically lost 1-0 on a lucky, found the hole goal that Freddie usually stops 99 out of 100 times. The sky isn't falling. On to the next.

I’ve never understood that part of ruling.   How can you intend to do something and call that an actua play.  If I intend to stop at a stop sign but don’t, I still blew the stop sign.

I get it when we're talking about a tiny fraction of a second - like, the whistle is basically in the ref's mouth, but he hasn't been able to use it. But, when there's a noticeable lag between the two - like, more than enough for the ref to have acted - then, I agree. It's dumb.

Officiating wasn't great overall last night. They really only made one penalty call that was a judgement call. Not the reason the Leafs' lost, but it is super annoying. There were sequences where it felt like a higher speed version of the clutch-and-grab days.
