What if he stands on his head and steals the W?

The standing are too close right now to go insane about. There are a few great teams, and alot of mediocre teams in the league. Leafs are a mediocre team.

Winnipeg being my birth place always leaves a little sentimentality towards wishing them well.

Lived there in a time when the WHA's Winnipeg Jets boasted Bobby Hull, Anders Hedberg and Ulf Nilsson etc.

But against my Leafs sentimentality takes a back seat for this game.

Go Leafs Go.

Well, the defense is in a funk,Reimer is in a funk,and the top line is in a funk lol. Should be interesting to see if they can lay down a defensive gem to get out of this.

Thats my hope anyways.,and that reims wins at home!

Still doesn't deserve to start the next one. He was borderline terrible the last 3 games.
Again,the only reason Gustavsson is not playing tonight,is because it's Reimer's home province.
Gustavsson deserves at the very least one start.

#Leafs didn't skate this morning. @jonastsn1050 confirms Tyler Bozak has been placed on IR. No Leafs lines until warm up.

TSNScottyMac Scott MacArthur
Further to Bozak being placed on IR, @jonastsn1050 reports Matthew Lombardi MAY come off IR and play at #NHLJets tonight.

Antropov line has been fun to watch.

Wellwood pulls such absurd plays out of nowhere at times.

It would be a pleasure to watch him with Kessel on his wing.

He was the Leafs' leading scorer in the 196364, 196667 and 196970 seasons, and the team's top goal scorer in 197071 and 197273. Keon was considered one of the fastest skaters in the NHL, and one of the best defensive forwards of his era.[3] He would usually play against the opposing team's top centre, and developed a reputation for neutralizing some of the league's top scorers. In 197071, he scored eight shorthanded goals, setting an NHL record.

To be clear, Bozak will miss seven days from date of the injury. Three games minimum.
2 minutes ago

Tyler Bozak has been placed on IR. There's a chance Matthew Lombardi will be activated to play tonight.

Reimer has allowed 10 goals in the last three games. Wilson said "it wouldn’t be fair to him" not to start in home province of Manitoba.

Go Leafs Go.

This reminded me of something Burke tweeted the other day. I don't believe there is such thing as a divided allegiance when pitted against each other.

Yes, sometimes we must only choose one.

Still the same team to me. Only difference is the home ice. I never said the Leafs beat Atlanta every time but over the years their best games have come against these Thrashers.

To be clear, that was in response to someone asking Burke if he would every consider working for Hockey Canada.

The Leafs are 9-0-2 in the last 11 NYE games.

Its important to get, and keep the lead, to keep the crowd out of it.
