Leafs lose 8-0

Seguin with 5G 3A
Hamilton with 3G 5A
Kessel a -8

How likely is this outcome?

Well 8-0 did happen last year if I remember correctly but the rest probably makes it unlikely.

Yes, I know humour when I see it.

You forgot a Rask shutout.

He still a pain in the ass to play against. However as Gunner pointed out, Grabo can take care of him. As well we might have Komarov to kick his ass too

Thornton is out by the way. Colton Orr will be the undesputed tough guy on the ice. An Orr-Lucic fight would be a very one-sided Orr victory. Maybe we see Orr-Chara?

Orr is still down with the flu I believe. Dunno if he'll be ready for tomorrow.

I don't think the Bruins are going to dominate physically this time around. The Leafs (and more specifically Carlyle) have prepared for this one.

I'm super excited for this game.

This was implied by the 8-0 score. But to make it more complete, the shots are 60-8...

For us.

Kessel with a .000 save percentage.

Orr was there playing last night. I was surprised he never went after Erskine. Perhaps just saving up his strength for Satruday


Anyone else find that now that Northeast teams have added toughness (Us, Sabres, Habs I guess) to go along with the already tough Rangers, it has kind of made the Bruins targets to the rest of the division?

Oh wow. I had a brainfart, good point. I hope he's up for something then lol.

We didn't really add toughness, we had it really but not utilized until Carlyle's plan.

Closest to Vanek is Eric Staal...and he isn't going anywhere.

I hope we get Perry. Now that would be something.

I want Perry more than I want Getzlaf.

Not that you like to see a guy injured... but this is good news for us:

Shawn Thornton out 7-10 days

Quote:
WILMINGTON, Mass. -- Boston Bruins forward Shawn Thornton will miss seven to 10 days due to a concussion he suffered in a first-period fight with the Buffalo Sabres' John Scott on Thursday night, the team announced.

IIRC, Orr went at him multiple times, Erskine just pussied out.

Grabovski is the closest we have to a Bruins killer. He seems to be on his game when he plays them.

Hopefully the kid line can shine again. Kadri seems to play even better when the game is a bit more energy paced.

Well I pretty much believe Getzlaf will re-sign with the ducks, so that's my hope as well atm

Man if perry signs with us in the off-season, I'd immediately buy a jersey day one.

Kadri only got about 13 mins last night. It's amazing how Kadri is always creating something on the ice despite not getting 15-17 minutes.

Hopefully he's on the first PP tomorrow...and NO KOSTKA please. We struggle against the Bruins as is...let's make our PP's count because the Bruins will give them.

Kessel is going to pot a few tomorrow This just makes a lot of sense.

With the way Kessel has been driving towards the net and evolving his game into much more than just a sniper. I think it's possible tbh, we first however need to solve Rask. I remember him being the type of goalie that tends to be solid unless you crash the net for that one or two goal. Then his mental state lets the opponents do the rest.

As for Kadri, yea makes me happy he's doing great this season. We definitely need to replace Kostka with a guy like Liles or something, this is just frustrating to see.
