No Connor Carrick due to injury, but we will get to see the return of Roman Polak. What a night in Toronto. Image

Interesting. I don't think Oz should come out he's been great IMO but I like Holl so I don't mind seeing him get a shot. Happy that Dermott is back in.

Edit: So apparently Babs wants to give Oz games off and every now and then to get him some rest. Good move IMO he's not used to the NHL grind yet and is used to playing a lot less games in the KHL. Makes sense as he'll probably want to rely on Oz a lot down the stretch/playoffs.

Methot is looking to hurt someone. He's teed up a few blindside runs but held up at the last, or just missed, not sure. Something to watch though. I'd start chipping it into his corner and go digging elbows first, but That's just me.

I haven't watched Kapanen much away from the puck, but he's really useful defensively in the neutral zone. His skating makes him a really effective pressure guy.

More pucks are bouncing tonight than 1cup of popcorn kernels.
Passes are off by 0.5 of a second.
Shots are blocked.
Rinse repeat.

Tavares has an open cage on the back door "and it hops on him!"
Fuck sakes.
There's no tape to tape hard passes on this ice.

He'll get hot again, just like any franchise center.

Holl probably won't get back in for a while. Not a great game from him. Dermott either for that matter.

That's true but other teams have shit ice and share buildings with NBA teams. Why can they get used to playing on shit ice but the Leafs can't?

Pretty sure the Raptors were sharing the arena when the Leafs scored the second most goals in the league last year. Chance is a thing.

The ice has been legitimate garbage for a couple of years now though, even some of the players commented on it last year. I'm not sure what happened, I don't recall these issues in the JFJ/Burke era. Wonder if there's been some cost cutting or just an influx of events that fuck with the quality of the ice.

This shit is reaching Nassau Coliseum levels.
