When your D isn't that wonderful to begin with and is now down a couple, the forwards number 1 priority is to help them get the puck out of harm's way.  It won't be FunHockey but it's necessary.



If a stationary target is what you have, and the D aren't gapped up on him enough, I'd like to see a lateral/reverse touch pass off the stretch to the middle where the centre or other winger can zip through the lane and carry in with speed.



As usual this is trenchant analysis but the above?  All you've done for me is conjure up nightmare images of our D laying pucks out there on a big old juicy central-ice plate where they will be gobbled up by the other team and then rapidly transferred to the far side of Frederik Matthias Andersen.

I meant D to W bump to middle for C/W at the OZ blueline. Itís the exact same play as a zone exit up the boards but further up ice.

I'm sorry, but I'm expecting a big loss. The cool thing is that I'm usually wrong.

Bottom line, just come out and skate.  If you do that the rest will take care of itself.

Muzzin turns the puck over far too easily.

Early penalty against the leafs.   Marleau just didnít move his legs.

Itís a defensive turnover but Andersen went wandering there for no reason and took himself out of position on that goal

Good penalty kill and then a brutal turnover by Muzzin.  Muzzin is a huge liability.   

Not good.

I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

Not sure what Freddie was doing there.  5 straight games  leafs have given up the 1st goal. 

Since Dec 20th Freddie has given up at least 2 goals in every game but one.

Muzzin makes so many bad plays with the puck, under no pressure or minimal. Itís absurd.

Leafs draw a PP.  First shift where they moved their feet.  Now make the preds pay.
