if Kreider was in a swimming pool carrying Phaneuf, you know he can jump out of the pool and land of his feet. There's a video of that on the internet somewhere

Kreider can't carry Phaneuf, he's too busy carrying the team.

Our problem against hard working teams have been lapses here and there and being outworked 70/30 consistently. It's as simple as that, really. There are a few ways to win games and we're not talented enough to be a lazy, sloppy, unmotivated team.

Of all the guys on our team this year that has perhaps lead to this team's poor identity, Dom Moore is not one of them and it's great to see him score a few individual effort goals. Our 4th line has been the best thing in the last few weeks aside from Zucc.

Ryan McDonagh's shooting percentage is at 7.9% which isn't bad but if you take away an empty net goal and Quick's present, it's around 5.6%. All the chances McDonagh has gotten in the last while, including so many from about 10-15ft where he had a goalie and net to look at, he needs to finish more of those. He's not a Girardi or Stralman. He's so smart and knows where to be offensively that he's getting quality scoring chances every game. Had looks tonight despite the reduced playing time, goal and a solid performance in PIT, best player on the ice in the offensive zone in the OT aside from Thomas. Looking at all of his shots, he needs to work on his shot. he doesn't have a hard or quick shot. He uses his wrister that gets through more often than your average point shot but aside from that, his shot is really average. In tight, his ability to get a hard shot away quick is pretty underwhelming.
From my point of view we have developed ways to dominate teams and we are actually really good when we got our foot on the gas.

OTOH, we are not good at all when the other team gets a hold on us.

Combine the Rangers nine game home stand and the five game trip. 6-6-2. 3-4-2 and home. 3-2 on the road. The Leafs have won 4 games in regulation since late October. They made the Rangers look like Sather's Oiler teams last night.

The Rangers are 17-2 when scoring first. Part of scoring first is the goalie making saves to keep the other team off the scoreboard. Talbot made some key saves before the Hagelin goal.

The Rangers have won five of seven. Hopefully Sather has his mind made up about his team. Their play will either increase player value or convince him to be a buyer.

he definitely seems tentative...i'm holding-out hope that he gets his confidence back and returns to being a difference-maker. i think it's a mental thing at the moment. it does happen and plenty often players bounce-back.

On the other hand, they've won 5 of their last 7. 16 games until the Olympic break. 16 in the next 34 days. Lots of hockey in January... they play literally every other day for the next two weeks straight. If they can win 10, given the standings around them, they'll probably be in a pretty good spot with those two weeks off. 8 of next 10 at home. The two following are against the Devils and the Islanders at Yankee Stadium, then the 3 are at home after that. Almost no travel. Finish the stretch at Pittsburgh.

Couple of things--Leafs lost Carl Gunnarsson in the first period after Carl Hagelin hit him in the corner. Gunnarsson is probably their most reliable defenseman in their own end. They played 5 D the rest of the night.

Nash started off fine last night but he got popped in the head by Cody Franson in the first period and after that he didn't play with the same enthusiasm. I think the concussion issues have been ongoing in his mind since he's been back. He's been very leery of going into combat areas and he's not hitting anyone--5 total hits this year. He's avoiding contact as much as possible. It almost seems like he can't wait for this season to be over and done but there's the Olympics right around the corner and he wants to play for Canada. That might be his playoffs/chance at a championship.

Proud of Kreids sticking up for himself against that big retard, his speed and power are amazing...rough night for the big retard, Boyle face washed him too, and had his head pinned against theboards...

Add some toughness to the roster, win 7-1. Coincidence? I think not.

For Nash it's become a mental thing...

His overthinking and over analyzing things and second guessing himself...

The scary thing is that even when he does get oppurtunities to score his shots seems very weak and predictable

I know he has all the skills and we need him to step up, but you can't play effectively while dodging contact

I've mentioned before that sometimes he tries to go through 3 guys which leaves others wide open. Instead of trying to get past 3 guys he needs to pass the pucks to his linemates going hard to the net

Nash could still be producing if, when he drives to the net and draws three defenders, he would just dish the puck.

If he could do that it would really diversify his game and make the d think twice.

As is, I'm not sure I completely buy that he's afraid of another concussion. Driving to the middle and attracting all the D is a surefire way to someday get tagged with an open-ice hit or clipped by an overzealous elbow.

I knew eventually he would have to throw down, the way he plays, he picked one of the toughest guys in the league to start with, with his speed and strength, he's creating alot of open ice for himself...
