Do we wear the home or the third this game? I love the third jersey and I own one myself, but I think we should go with the homes this game. I know the third is a throwback the 1967 team, the last team that won the cup obviously, but I think we should wear the homes and write our own history going forward, should we win that game.

That could work out in the Leafs favor. They are the younger team after all. Chara might be a little bit slow and tired in game 7 (assuming Leafs win game 6 of course!)

@DarrenDreger

Grabovski's flip-o-puck attempt in the 1st is an off-day sidebar. Kadri says he might try it. Based on Carlyle's reax earlier...I wouldn't.

Leafs looked kind of gassed after the 1st period.

I can't help but think the back to back games hurt the Bruins more than us. Let's not forget it's a back to back with travel for the Bruins as well. This might be the only time where being a much younger, and possibly more energetic team does us more good than harm.

The Maple Leafs, I believe, have made a habit of sporting their thirds for the playoffs in recent years. Well, not "recent" as the last time they qualified was 2004. But between 1999 and 2004, their old white alternate got an extra workout in the postseason.
That said, I'm fairly sure the NHL only permits teams to use two jerseys during the playoffs. So if the Sharks were to win the Cup, they'd only be able to do so wearing black or white.

If that isn't bad enough, when they win the Series I have a business trip(which I'll miss our Anniversary for) the following weekend which would coincide with Games 3 & 4 of the Semi's.
Don't suppose the tickets need a good home.

what a great idea, not sure why we don't see that attempted by players more often. i bet grabo regrets not letting the puck fall a little longer, or even waiting until it landed before taking a swing at it. would've been one of the most incredible playoff goals in years.

not just the entire playoffs, goal of the decade. Although Ovechkin's crazy goal on his back in 04 or 05 I think would be number 1 IMO. Grabo's though would be #2 though

Jack Edwards described it as a "magic hand play" that you may not see again in years.

Remember when this use to be the Leafs third jersey.



During the 2002 and 2003 playoffs the Leafs would wear it during their home games and in the 2004 playoffs they would wear it during their road games.

So maybe that's the reason why they have been wearing their new third jersey in Game 3, Game 4 and chances are during Game 6.

I loved the effort these past 4 games. If they can kick it up a notch and tighten up defensively we should have no problem going to game 7. Need to limit chances and stay coordinated. Too many turnovers trying to breakout, everyone needs to be on the same page. That's whats killing us. The bruins arent like the blackhawks where they make amazing offensive plays, they feed off of turnovers. No turnovers = no goals. Obviously the TO number wont be 0, but the more we limit turnovers the fewer chances they get. They're a tight checking defensive team, make one mistake and there's a good chance its going in the back of your net. We learned that the hard way. That is the key to beating this team.
