Kadri! MacArthur had a great game too! Leafs looking shaky otherwise

When they come out flat for about tne 6 or 7th game in a row at least they have a built in excuse.

I was thinking, again, why they don't ever try playing Kulemin with another center. This guy has been exclusively on Grabovski's wing for two seasons now. It's ludicrous.

Leafs now have 3 days off before Monday's game against the Devils.

This gives time for Reimer to get more into the groove, and for Carlyle to address the issues we've been seeing in the past two games. Frattin is hopefully back by then as well.

It also gives us time to bask in the glory that is Nazem Kadri.

Not the most inspiring win- hopefully we're much better after the break, because I don't like what I've seen from this team in the past few games. Maybe time to take Holzer out and put back in a vet like Komi or Liles.

Great effort by Kadri though, here's hoping that this is only the beginning.

Wow. I was checking in my phone but quit looking at the score after it was 4-2. Sucks to give a point up to anyone in the east but at least we got the win. Now I can watch the game over again on game centre 24 hours from now. Sounds like a missed a defensive gem. Lol

First game back for Optimus, with a team playing 3 in 4. I'd cut him some slack.

Why is there not a HNIC game for us this Saturday? I really hate that. Saturday is the only day I can watch the game at home.

The Leafs definitely won't be playing playoff hockey if they don't turn their game around. They have looked incredibly flat / disinterested for a number of games now and have gotten away from a defensive system that will allow them to be competitive in the East this year.

C'mon Randy, gotta try to get that confidence in them again.

Leafs should be ashamed. Godawful game tonight. Thanks to Kadri for keeping us in it.

They said that about Macarthur too, it's an excuse, Mac wasn't the problem it's the black hole of a Center. Mac is doing well with Kadri, you couldn't get him back with Grabo if you paid him a million dollars.

Another hard game to watch.

We let it get way closer than we should've. Amazing game by Kadri though.

Reimer's performance also has me a little worried, though it's early to say that. Last year he came back from injury and was never quite the same.

Nothing good comes from Leaf goaltenders handling the puck. Jesus...

They really need to get back to tightening up the neutral zone and what made them successful. Hopefully they correct that during the 3 days off.

If you think Grabovski is a puck hog, you need to spend less time typing ******** on this forum during the games and more time actually watching.

The Leafs have been scouted and the lack of a true puck mover on the back end somebody who can skate the puck out of the D zone with the puck is hurting them. Teams are cheating on the wall Montreal did it all game long last night knowing full well what the game plan is to get out of the D zone and they need the element of a true puck mover to keep the opposition honest.

It's time Liles gets back in the line up or better yet CLEAR A DAMN ROSTER SPOT for Gardiner.

9-4-0 on the road. Impressive no matter how they got the wins. Sucking at the ACC is a given

Ok we're reminded. You must be very proud to have discovered him when no one else recognized his talent.
