Entertaining game.. leafs had some glorious chances and could have scored 7 goals or more this game.. nabokov came up with some really nice saves.

reimer didn't look comfortable in there like a few mentioned.. but at the end of the night he had a .909 save % which is respectable.. he faced over 30 shots again so he did his job.. nothing spectacular but he made a couple nice saves.

Kadri and connolly were playing awesome.. Mac was great as well. Loved that 2nd line tonight.

all 3 lines are capable and getting chances every game.. Lovin this teams forwards.

The D not so much.. I feel confident when schenn and gardiner are on the ice.. otherwise it's not so comfortable.

They're our #1-2 moving forward i beleive.

Phaneuf is hit and miss.. awesome one game not so great the next.. like the start of the year he was hitting and scoring.. now he's chipping in for the odd point and big hit.

Franson i like his offensive upside but he needs to work on when to pinch and when not to. Overall he's a keeper though

I wouldn't be too depressed if the leafs traded aulie right now.. but he's a big man and they take time to get their game down.. Is he more of a hal gill or chara? or will be cement his own legacy. I know he'll never be elite like chara but i'd be happy if he became something in between with the ability to chip in 20 points.

If Getzlaf is being moved it will cost a team atleast a roster player, their best prospect and a 1st rd pick for starters. The Dreger tweet didn't say he was made available by Anaheim, only that unamed NHL people think at some point he may be for the right players. Obviously this means a slide by Anaheim, and a team offers up a very attractive package. If I were Anaheim, I would move Ryan before Perry or Getzlaf. At this point I am doubting the Ducks would move Getzlaf or Perry, these 2 are pretty much the Duck's franchise.

If it's the playoffs all I want are blow outs. Close playoff games are way too stressfull!

Bozak is turning into a heckuva player. He, Kadri, and Frattin really brought it tonight, at least.
Yep those three guys along with Lupul. Gardiner was good made a great move but didn't score. Aulie doesn't look good. Phanuef looked slow. I like the three lines we have.

Lupul-Bozak-Kessel
Kadri-Connolly-Macarthur
Kulemin-Grabovski-Frattin

Crabb-Steckel-Boyce........Boyce is ok but I can't wait to one of the IR guys gets back and takes his place.

Kulemin and Grabovski looked bad tonight. Not sure why these two are struggling.

How did they blow a 3 goal lead? They never trailed and the game was never tied. Stop looking for **** to whine about.

I thought the effort was fine. 90% of your wins are going to be close.

Leafs come back and play florida.

I'm hoping that 8-0 loss to boston is the start of a long losing streak for florida.. they have 4 days to think about the loss now anyways.

Leafs have 4 very winnable games left in december now is the time to go on that win streak boys.

Eat lots of turkey over the break.. replenish your bodies for a strong push in the second half! Us leaf fans deserve to see our boys in the playoffs!

Whatever you guys do please don't match up against Boston if we make it! LOL

Frattin has developed into one heck of a player .... this kid is unreal

he is doing EVERYTHING right ... has an amazing shot, makes some great passes, some nifty moves, etc

he is playing exactly the way he was playing on Sioux


and good luck to the oppositions trying to knock him down

its a matter of time before the pucks start piling up in the net

Lupul should have gotten (another poorly timed dumbars) penalty on that but they got a break on the phantom high stick.
Weight should have been coaching here for the last month, his heart would have exploded by now.

Missed the whole game, happy to see the results!

Naz is the man! Where are the haters now? Another goal and assist from the Big Guns.

Good way to go into Christmas, and another day with our head above water.

it's the little things; he's been doing them from the start.

Kadri's doing all the little things the last couple of games, so hopefully he continues and sticks too

That's funny. I recall reading a few posts from an individual tonight saying that "Frattin=Crabb" and "Frattin is a 4th line player". All I could really do was laugh at the clueless kid.

That would read like the first Senators series pre-lockout in the streak where the Leafs owned the Sens in the playoffs. Sens owned the Leafs in the reg season.

Kadri's commitment to the back check has shown the last two games. It was good to see him pickpocket John T.

When they played Windsor in that wicked playoff series of overtimes, Kadri was easily as dangerous as Tavares on any given shift.
