Game Notes

TOR
•Andersen (30-15-14, 2.64 GAA, .919 Sv%) will likely start for the Leafs
•William Nylander is on a 10-game point streak and has 25 points in his last 24 games
•Since ending his 7-game pointless streak, Auston Matthews has points in 4-straight (2 goals, 3 assists)
•Super rookie number three Mitch Marner has just a measly 6 points in his last 7 games

BUF
•Robin Lehner (20-23-8, 2.65 GAA, .921 Sv%) will likely start for the Sabres
•Buffalo has a number of players listed as "questionable", but it seems like a bunch of them will be able to play
•One player who definitely won't be playing is their top defenceman, Rasmus Ristolainen. He will serve the first game of a 3-game suspension for a hit on Pittsburgh forward Jake Guentzel

Donald "We’re going to win so much, you’re going to be so sick and tired of winning" Trump's healthcare reform bill was such a guaranteed loss that it didn't even make it to the floor for a vote.

I think this was a simple reporting error, like when people couldn't figure out if Trump was actually saying "bigly" or "big league" (not that either of them make any sense). In this case what Trump was probably ACTUALLY saying was "whining".

What?  A guy losing part of his finger is routine?

No, the slash itself was routine.

If a guy trips another guy and he breaks his ankle falling down, does he get suspended?

FWIW Crosby literally slashed off the end of Methot's finger tonight.  Anybody think there'll be a suspension for that?

One game, max. A "see, we do suspend stars!" suspension.

It's really unfortunate what happened to Methot, but that looked like a pretty routine slash. 2 minutes, absolutely. A suspension though? No way.

Montreal can keep 1st place. And it doesn't really matter if we finish 2nd or 3rd in the Atlantic, we'll have home ice either way.

Can they? Ottawa is only 1 point back with a game in hand; Leafs are 6 back, also with a game in hand. They're in the 2nd place conversation.

I meant "can" as in I'll allow them to since I'd rather the Leafs not finish 1st anyway. You're right though, 1st place is still up for grabs.

It might be time to start adding Ottawa and Montreal to the list.

Solid defensive play/hit by Rielly there.

I'm actually surprised Babcock even used a challenge on that.

9
Gotta think that stands. Puck was in the net well before contact.

10
Anyways, all that to say I'm actually hoping Marner gets some limited minutes on the PK tonight.  I think he'd be very effective on the PK long-term for the Leafs.

I'm surprised that Kadri doesn't see more time killing penalties. Last season Babs even mentioned wanting to transition Kadri into a PKer for this season.

Sure? I don't have a problem with the suspension, but I'll never quite understand how boarding infractions are judged. The Sosh on Bergeron one seemed equally bad to me.

Devils are going with their back-up, Keith Kinkaid, tonight. Kinkaid is 1-5 in his last 6 games with a .877 save percentage.

Could be a tank-move, although Schneider's recent stats aren't much better. 1-6-2 in his last 10 starts with a .896 save percentage.

Remember when the Leafs were dumb for not having drafted Larkin instead of Nylander, because Detroit is awesome at drafting? Larkin has a whopping 5 more points in 57 more career games, and Nylander has already surpassed Larkin's rookie season by 9 points.

You guys don't get it.  Detroit's scouts are the best in the league.  They have drafted guys in the 6th round and they went on to be superstars.  They know what you're doing.  Some of you on here are just up on your high horse trying to be right all the time.

Well played. ;D

Old threads are the best.
