Leafs vs Flyers - Schenn returns....
 
Saw the Post Game Thread was almost at 1000, figured I might as well throw this up.

Leafs vs Flyers

Schenn and JVR face their old teams for the first time. Who will do better tommorow night?

Mod Edit: I don't care what they're saying on the Philly boards, please do not bring over posts from their PGT/GDT. Thanks

I hope Schenn has a good game. I loved that guy and always though he would have been a future captain, but then Wilson happened.

That being said, I hope the Leafs can bottle what they had in Montreal and keep rolling.

JMcLeaf 02-10-2013 05:47 PM

Safe to assume same lineup as yesterday?

BertCorbeau 02-10-2013 05:51 PM

JVR dekes out Schenn to score the game winner, midway through the third period ;)

EDDIE20* 02-10-2013 06:00 PM

I hope JVR pots a few past Bryzgalov.

HappyGilmourr 02-10-2013 06:00 PM

VERY important game... The leafs have to prove they can get big wins against good teams. As of now 57 % of our wins are against the capitals and Canadiens... to likely non-playoff teams. Tommorow is more important then some of you think IMO if you can extend this streak to 6-7 games then playoffs are.. dare i say it - likely Toronto keep it going !!

Erdinger 02-10-2013 06:01 PM

I think the Flyers rolling into town is the perfect opponent to test whether this new team bonding is for real. Should be a fun game to watch. I always love watching Leafs-Flyers games.

Flyers are at the bottom of the standings at the moment. Not really sure how good Phili is right now, everything is still to early to tell.

Who gon' take on Rinaldo??

Hyperglide 02-10-2013 06:16 PM

Schenner is gonna cough the puck up to JVR right in front of the net and JVR is gonna pot one over "Hoomungus beeg" for the easy goal.

He better not be suspended. If he is then we will probably see:

JVR-Bozak-Kessel
Frattin-Kadri-Mac
Komarov-McClemment-Kulemin
McLaren-Steckel-Orr

But really Grabo should only get a warning

Hotlanta 02-10-2013 06:20 PM

We need to keep the pressure on Philadelphia's defense. We need to beat them with speed and quick passes. Grabo line needs to play a strong defensive game and shut down the Giroux line, too much speed to play out fourth line against. Hoping our first line gets matched against the Couturier line and we can beat Knuble with speed and Read and Cuts with experience. Schenn line vs Kadri line will be interesting, I think the key two that lines success is going to be Mac because he is the outlier on these two very sheltered lines.

Speed and toughness is going to go both ways tomorrow. This game will come down to PP, PK and Goaltending.

GO LEAFS GO

I will be at the game and hope Schenn gets a standing ovation and mentioned during Lupe's Troops.

Kessel :sarcasm:

Orr/McLaren/Fraser will have a say.

Doshy 02-10-2013 06:28 PM

Who do you guys think Schenn will fight? I assume it'll happen.

Here's hoping JVR will pot one.

Suntouchable13 02-10-2013 06:35 PM

Gotta win at home. 1-5 at home would be a great reason for concern, and I think it will erase most of the good vibes from the game in Montreal and the recent road trip overall.

Pyrophorus 02-10-2013 06:35 PM

Flyers seeming to start righting their ship.

I'm expecting the first extra time game of the season.

If we win, its still (at this point) another non-playoff team we've beaten.

bunjay 02-10-2013 06:37 PM

Philly has been awful and they'll be looking at the Leafs as a way to get things back on track. Our fourth line risks getting exposed as do our slower defensemen. These are no smurfs that you can physically dominate and let the rest sort itself out.

I think Randy will have them prepared for this one.

We have a good streak going...we've come back from behind in 2 games, absolutely destroyed Montreal.

Phaneuf, he fought his kid brother and people* said they did not get along.


*I have no idea really.

They have cement-feet Schenn though.

Our speed can abuse their D just as much as their speed can abuse ours.

I think it'll be a good one.

Stephen 02-10-2013 06:43 PM

I hope for the following things:

-JVR and Kessel to light up Luke Schenn and Kimmon Timonen
-Kadri to outscore Brayden Schenn, and maybe give him a bit hit for his trouble
-James Reimer to beat up Ilya Bryzgalov in a Potvin vs Hextall rematch

And a big Leafs win, obviously.

bunjay 02-10-2013 06:43 PM

Why would Schenn fight anybody? The guy is averaging just over 20 minutes of icetime for Philly, they'd probably prefer him to be playing hockey.

iArts 02-10-2013 06:44 PM

I hope JVR schools Schenn and scores a hat trick.
