The more I watch the Leafs the more I realize how difficult it must be to be the coach. I keep watching them thinking "RUN MILLER OVER" or "I don't care if Kaleta refuses to drop the gloves. I don't care if you get the extra penalty. Break his face."
To maintain any level of calm while standing behind the bench, mad respect.
IMO, the team played better in the second than the first.
Kessel and bozak were buzzing everywhere. Miller's been standing on his head the whole game, our team has been making lots of chances and has taken the shots. You can't say much when the goalie is just that good. They're doing what they can. They should inprove in the third, some stupid mistakes, but the chances were there.
And quite giving up on scrivens already, its two games in and the goals weren't his fault
I am trying to watch. It's hard not to look away when Kessel is floating around on the ice. Makes me think of Seguin and Hamilton.
You must be doing a lot more looking away than watching because this is actually some of the most back checking I have seen Kessel do to date.
As for the game, Kaleta is on my early list of gutless players. Guy goons Kessel for "running" Miller (really Miller was floating way out of his crease and Kessel skated into him while he was looking for the pick). Mike Brown wants to go and he just skates off. Can't handle the real tough guys I guess?
