I will say this... if we play like that every night we're going to win a lot more games. We played very well. We really only made a few glaring errors and unfortunately one cost us (despite the fact there probably should have been a penalty on the play). I'm disappointed we lost, but I'm encouraged by the new commitment to defence, and hopefully we'll find our scoring touch soon.
-Kadri scores again with a clutch goal
-Bozak bounces back in the faceoff circle
-1st line looking unreal, 3rd line looking like a 2nd line
-Team defence looking really good
-Phaneuf and Kostka looking really good together
-Fouth line did a great job
-Grabo and Kuli looking lost in the offensive zone
-Gunnarson just had a terrible night with a few bad decisions
-Miller stood on his head
-PP looked good, just couldnt capitalize
For all his hype Komarov has been underwhelming too.
All his hype? Before the beginning of the AHL season, most thought that he'd be a bubble player, a possibility to make it as a 4th liner (whenever it started).
We're 2 games in, have allowed 3 goals, and are 1-1, and people are talking like the sky is falling. Scrivens is bad, Komarov looks bad.... etc. The Leafs outplayed the Sabres, whom have the better roster on paper, the only thing that stood in their way from a Win was a true franchise goalie.
