Not really digging Gauthier in the lineup, or Lindholm being moved to the wing. Thought the 4th line was pretty solid the last 2 games and their numbers were pretty good too. At least Kapanen is staying with Matthews and Oz is back in.

I dont like the look of that bottom 6, but I understand the reasoning. Johnsson needs a message to hopefully get him going and we need more heavy play from the bottom 6. Lindholm will lean on guys more than Leivo did, and I guess they are hoping Gauthier does the same.

I'm expecting that fourth line to play like 5 minutes tonight.

3 players who play vastly different styles of game. Leafs are on the road, Babs loves to match, so I don't think they'll play more than 6-7min. Leivo might get an extra few if there's alot of pp work.

Babs obviously viewed Line 3 as a defensive liability with Leivo on it.

Gauthier might not bother to cross center with Leivo and Ennis on his wings. If they don't get scored on it will be a success.

Feel sorry for Kadri. He must be hoping for Billy to sign more than anyone

I don't think Benn made any contact. That's a good goal.

Edit: made contact with Freddy's stick but I still don't think we'll get the call in our favour.

That was a great series of plays. Great hustle and battle by Hyman, great pass by Marner, and the net drive (and some luck) by Tavares.
