Leafs vs Pens, welcome home.

I need a bit of pre-game talk and I can't wait for the GD thread. Pre-GD thread talk here.

I expect a playoff atmosphere for the majority of this game. Might be a few Leafs fans too, it should be a great time for anyone going to the game. I predict that Crosby begins to shake off the rust and gets a goal tonight.

Looks like Toronto is shaking up their lines a bit in practice:

JVR-Grabo-Kuli
Mac-Kadri-Komorov

PP: Lupul-Kadri-Kessel

How do we match up? Any thoughts?

If you use Google Chrome download the extension called Stealthy.

Turn it on and click on blacked out game, once game starts you can turn it off.

These are usually high-scoring affairs for some reason.

Either way, this one'll hinge on Fleury (more than your regular game hinges on a goaltender, yeah I know). I alsothink the D to continues to play well too.

And I'd imagine Phaneuf will get the Malkin assignment, so, it's time for Crosby and his line to get going, since they should have the opportunity here.

Do the Leafs still have a team?

But seriously, should be a good opener. Probably some rough stuff, some run-and-gun style hockey from both teams. Hopefully the Pens stay sharp, don't slack off. That's how games are lost.

Some Toronto fans are such idiots, they think Colton Orr is the best heavyweight in the league because he landed a huge body shot on John Scott. They try to convince themselves that Phil Kessel is the best player in the NHL. Some Toronto fans worship James Reimer because of his performance during the 2010-2011 regular season.

Colton Orr is one of the best.

I don't think so, he hasn't been the same since Deryk Engelland TKO'd him.

I believe they packed up and re-located after finding out that Pittsburgh, not Toronto, was actually the hockey mecca.

You're right. I'd put Bordeleau, McGrattan, Engelland, Thornton, and Kassian (maybe) as the top 5.

Every fan base has it's share of idiots. Toronto just happens to have more fans than most, so their idiots are more noticeable.
