Those injuries are a problem, but they still should be able to win this series.  Unfortunately they have now put a lot of pressure on themselves because if they blow this they will be criticized mercilessly (and deservedly).

I say they'll find a way to pull it out.  That's my storyline, and I'm sticking to it.

I hope for a huge win tonight.

Also hoping that Spezza move's on to the 2nd line, he is playing great and should play more.

my ideal 2nd line would be: Spezza - Kerfoot - Marner (I would put Nylander on Marner's place on the 1st line too)

Anyway, Go Leafs Go!!!
A.K.A Gardiner51, Changed back to Kaberle15 now that he is retired.

I have no doubt we'll come out swinging the big question is though, Price. How well is he going to play, does he have it in him to pull off a Patrick Roy and steal this series, we will see. GO LEAFS!!

Easy things to do:

1. Give Willy the puck: PP1 left half-wall, rotating with Marner on the goal line whenever the defense disrespects 16's ability to shoot (which should be always)

2. Whatever - Kerfoot - Nylander or, if daring, Whatever - Matthews - Nylander

3. Ds need to sidestep the initial forecheck layer with their feet; mix some stretch rushes in with their puck possession to stretch the MTL structure uncomfortably

4. Sweep screens in and out, instead of static screens parked on the crease top. No goalie likes moving visual obstructions. Price's numbers have spiked good because the Leafs aren't really taking away his eyes and shooting a lot for his glove, which offers much less rebound opportunity.

5. When a ref asks "do you want to challenge this incredibly obvious good-goal that has a 0.05% chance of being overturned" say "no thanks that would be incredibly dumb because we'd just get a penalty".

Was the precedent Keefe referring to that time Ducharme challenged pointlessly as well?

Adding:
6. Marner: relax and just play head empty; hockey is fun and you love it, so make it fun with your buds. Embrace causing chaos because that's the source of your magic.

A fully healthy Foligno? Sure. The Foligno we saw hobbling around the ice Saturday? Love the guy but I'd much sooner put him on the 4th line.

Should be:

Hyman-Matthews-Marner
Galchenyuk-Kerfoot-Nylander
Foligno-Engvall-Mikheyev
Thornton-Spezza-Simmonds

With the 4th line getting as little ice-time as possible unless Simmonds runs over 3 Habs in his first shift and Spezza getting inserted into the top-6 here and there.
