So great to see Kulimen score on the breakway. Welcome to the NHL!
Tlusty, Hagman and Grabovski are a really nice looking line.
Schenn look so seasoned out there tonight.
Nice to see Antropov remember his defensive responsibilities tonight. He looked much better. A few bounces going differently and that line may have put one in tonight as well. I think their style will likely be more effective against other teams that play a more trap-like game where Antropov in particular, and Ponikarovsky to a lesser extend can utilitze their size and down-low cycle game.
Toskala, once he faces a few pucks, looked really focussed.
Kubina looked very involved tonight, which was nice to see and Frogren looked much improved over the pre-season. Maybe he's just getting more comfortable with the size of the rinks and with his new teammates.
Anyways, can't ask for more than that game. It was a beauty.
He was the Leafs' leading scorer in the 1963–64, 1966–67 and 1969–70 seasons, and the team's top goal scorer in 1970–71 and 1972–73. Keon was considered one of the fastest skaters in the NHL, and one of the best defensive forwards of his era. He would usually play against the opposing team's top centre, and developed a reputation for neutralizing some of the league's top scorers. In 1970–71, he scored eight shorthanded goals, setting an NHL record.
