Nice to get a win, but it wasn't pretty. Thought it was going to be a cakewalk after the first period, but a dumb penalty turned things around.
Reimer looked shaky but still made the stops when we needed it. It's weird how yesterday he looked like a vacuum with no rebounds, and tonight everything that hit him was bouncing off like a superball.
Great game by Bozak, winning draws and making great plays at both ends of the ice. Frattin was buzzing around all night, so was Kadri. Both Connolly and Gardiner had highlight-reel chances that they just couldn't bury.
I'm loving the 4th line of Crabb-Steckel-Boyce, they're exactly what a 4th line should be. Dupuis can stay away from the ice as long as he needs.
Keith Aulie can go back down the Marlies ASAP as far as I'm concerned. And I don't know what's up with Grabo but he doesn't seem right. This team has interesting decisions to make when Lombardi and Armstrong are ready to return.
Bozak was good, but I didn't think Lupul or Kessel played very well.
Reimer was ok, but unspectacular.
Really not liking Aulie much in his stint.
Ugly win overall.
Nothing is certain when it comes to the Leafs and Kadri, but I think Eakins was right when he said this was his last call up. Looks good and he has some chemisty with Mac and Connolly. A pleasure watching this line's creativity. Just hope Connolly can stay healthy.
I pretty much saw the 3rd period and the 1st/4th goals Leafs scored but good to see Leafs head to the break with some momentum.
Our offense had another good night. From what I saw, they looked very dangerous in the 3rd period but kinda weird how the only goal they scored was an empty netter, especially that Kessel line. They were dangerous offensively and its pretty cool Lupul gets to keep his streak alive and Kessel now has more assists than goals (lolwut???)! I was pretty impressed with Bozak on that short-handed goal, that was nice vision and patience.
I was pretty impressed with Kadri in the 3rd period. I haven't seen his goal yet but good to see him get one but I like how he took some hits in the 3rd but still made the plays, got the puck in deep and managed to be dangerous offensively. Seems like Mac-Connolly-Kadri line has found some good chemistry, hopefully they keep it going.
Defense was fine other than leaving Tavares in front of the net with the puck for what seemed like forever. I didn't like Reimer at all in the 3rd period, he kept fumbling the puck and looked very shaky but whatever, we got the win so who cares!
