Game Thoughts and Questions:
There is no doubt that Sebastien Centomo is the SJML's #1 goaltender and his numbers are a reflection of his strong play this season, 4-3-1 with a 2.23 GAA and a .929 SPCT. Can Centomo continue his strong play?
Jamie Hodson has only started 2 games this season and has an 0-2-0 record and will be in the back-up role until Centomo stumbles. Hodson is a better goaltender than his two starts indicate. With the Leafs playing 5-games in 10 days on this road trip, how many will Hodson play?
The Leafs have a number of rearguards on the club and it is the opinion here that they can not go wrong with whatever 6 they decide to dress.
Will Colaiacovo be ready for tonight's contest? Will Hedin be back in the line-up? Will Chartier and Bell dress? Will Pilar and Kondratiev continue their strong play and how long are they going to be with the SJML's? Will Regan Kelly and David Turon see playing time on the road trip? Will the veteran Moro get some needed rest? Will Harrison get the night off? Questions that only the coaching staff know the answers to.
The Leafs forwards have done a great job considering that most night's they do not have enough for a full 3 lines. When they get all of the forwards back in the line-up then we should see some exciting action and more goal production.
Can the Leafs forwards start scoring goals on a regular bases. Will Holden be back in the line-up tonight? If so will we see the line of Holden-Druken-Leeb together? Can Wellwood and Barrett continue to produce? Will Cereda be back in the line-up on this road trip? Will Gavey and Daw start producing offensively? Will Palahnuk and Newbury continue to play strong on the PK? Can Brown continue to provide muscle and play a solid game as well?
The Leafs need to play a lot better defensively and cut down their GA and the opposing teams second and third shot opportunities. The Leafs also have to stay out of the sin bin.
