Leafs doing some scoring in a lot of different ways that game. Even strength, Short handed, Power Play and Empty Netter. Also great scoring balance as well.

Bozak is really playing great this year, he will never be that center for the 1st line, but it's working right now. Solid defensively, good playmaker, and has a good shot.

Great #2C.

Happy about the win, but can't imagine anyone saying we played a hell of a game. Win lose, this team makes it interesting to the end. A loosey goosey greasy win.

Our 2nd line was the best.

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.

surprised this game was close as it never really seemed like it was. goaltending was mediocre though. the best part about this game was doug weight.

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.

Reimer wasn't as sharp tonight, but the offense gave him some room to work with.

Bozak and Kadri's games must be eating some posters inside. Frattin had another solid game. No points, but his boardwork was terrific. Grabo wasn't very effective.

Mac-Connolly-Kadri seem to have great chemistry.

Hopefully Liles is back next game.

Have to win these games, good work boys!

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.

Great #2C.
Disagree with the shot, but agree for the most part on everything else. I think on a contender he is more of a 3rd line C that can provide good offense.

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!

Lupul had a decent 3rd period, but yeah, for the most part he was invisible. Bozak, however, was incredible.

How crap were they? The team won the game. Reimer had ok performance, but still be able to help the team to win the game. If he played crap, then the team was lost already.

Kessel had two good chances, but Nabokov saved it. And he didn't play selfish of the empty net goal. I really don't know how could you say they both were crap tonight.
