I don't see why we shouldn't get Tokarski at least a game. This would be THE perfect time. Maybe it would be throwing him to the wolves, but who knows, maybe he's ready. Let Price heal. We need him for the Boston game.
If Budaj can play well and not allow soft goals, Habs have a chance.
I'm most concerned about cross crease passes leading to a gaping net. This always happens with the leafs. We never seem to be able to pick up their forwards. Every single D man needs to be better at this. Either they go for the same guy, or they all leave him (including the fwd who should of had him).
We need puck luck and some sniping. I think Briere has been trending upwards. Pacioretty is due, as is PK. Looking forward to him rebounding -- I think he knows how bad he screwed up on that play.
Also, what is the deal with this excuse that players (including around the league) are still adjusting to the time difference. I travel a ton between Canada and Asia and I can't believe some of them are still jet lagged considering they're in godly physical shape. (Which minimizes the effect if anything.)
Is this Boods's first Sat night start at home vs. the laffs on HNIC? Maybe the other time was the bruins and he won. So wish we had a healthy Prust, i.e., the Prust of last year before injury #1.
