Shakeup in LA:


We're going to rightfully fire the people responsible for our teams demise. We're also... going to promote people responsible for our teams demise.

Jake Gardiner says the #Leafs have to change something on their power play.

Maybe Jake should coach too.

Prior to the series some Caps penalty killers were talking about the Leafs PP and said things about their entries. It was clearly something that they had heavily pre-scouted prior to the series. The Leafs don't look like they've made any adjustments to it other than sometimes trying the double drop-pass, which just kills any speed that they have and has only made things worse it looks like.

Good angle of the game winner:

You can see Nylander skating toward the boards expecting Hunwick to win the race and wire it up to him. When that didn't happen and the play broke down he comes into the slot area to try and pick up Williams but just doesn't get there in time.

God.

Damnit.

That was just awful from the second the puck was dumped in. Everybody messed up.

4th line offensive faceoff with 2:31 left in the game. Not sure about that one.

Two giveaways by Zaistev in about 15 seconds by doing the same thing: passing up his boards with no Leaf there.

11
I thought he was going to tip it over the net for the aerial centering pass.

Unfortunately Matthews was behind the net too, and he doesn't pass to Hyman because he knows better.

12
Orpik had Kapanen pinned onto the boards for a solid 10 seconds there. How is that not holding?

13
Oh my I could watch Nylander retrieving the puck from the net all day long.

Net chop is the best way to get the puck out. I'm so glad they highlighted that.

I wish he yelled "YOINK" when he did it. I'm just going to imagine that he did.

It feels like Nylander's won a lot of faceoffs in this series when it's on his side. I think unless/until we find a suitable replacement for him on Matthews' line he needs to stay there, but that's a good sign for his potential future at centre.
