Gotta improve that PP

Props to Orr for going with Scott. Scott is one big ass mofo

No chance for Scrivens on that goal

Need more traffic infront of Miller because it looks like he's gonna have a great night

Just put Komarov there in front of Miller on the PP. Let him troll the **** out of him.

Beside Lupul's line, other lines don't seem to have any chemistry.

Except for the 4th line

Kulemin has been dissapointing and Macurthur ...mmmm that whole line

Where's Grabo?

Miller is the only reason we are not leading. If we get two more periods like the first one, we'll beat him.

Well if we lose tonight that sad 3 minutes stretch will be why. Miller didn't have to be spectacular, the scoring chances were *****.

They need to move the puck faster. Several times high quality scoring chances were developing but the pass wasnt made soon enough, or at all. Kessel early on there had a moses-splitting-the-red-sea-like passing lane to a wide open JVR at the far post, but he held on to it. Score there and the Leafs are still on the PP.

Put JVR on the second line with Grabo/MacArthur, demote Kulemin to third line.

Miller was just insane this period. I can't believe we didn't score with that much PP time. If the makeup calls do come....let's hope our PK is feeling sharp.

Get JVR and just place him in front of the net he has the size and the skill to get a rebound.

That stupid thread on the main board has jinxed us and drained our team of all offensive ability.

This.

I am not impressed with Kulemin so far. At basics you expect him to move his feet

The leafs hang on to the puck far too long before they make a pass, they're giving the Sabre's way too much time to react. Wouldn't hurt them to shoot a bit more, it's a 5 on 3 , make a quick pass or shoot....

Yeah I saw that too, I was begging for him to pass it through but he ended up hanging on to it.

Maybe, but none of those penalties were bad calls. All were stupid plays (Stafford and Ott) or mistakes (Myers) by Sabres players.

Before I get called a troll I am a Sharks fan first, Leaf fan second. I live in Toronto so I kinda have to cheer for the Leafs, it would just be wrong if I didn't. Leafs may be pretty bad but unfortunately I think we all know that lol.

Anyways I came on here specifically to ask what the hell happened with that 5 on 3 confusion?? All I heard was something about Myers coming out early or something like that and then Stafford when back in or some ****, so can somebody please explain to me what happened there? Also, holy crap at how good Miller is playing! Anyways Go Leafs!

I don't get SNO so I am unable to watch the game...grrrr. Isn't the "pass the potatoe game til we get bored" a tactic used under Wilson? I don't know what Carlyle's powerplay teams were like in Anahiem anyone have any insight?

The way McClean talks about Kostka you'd think it was one of his former draft picks.
