    Hopefully Andersen is back for this one.

    I'd imagine everything else will stay the same from last night.

    Expecting a big win here.

    If we lose. That's it. It's over. It'l be the end. We will need to look for a new interest/hobby/love affair going forward.

    If we lose. The Toronto Maple Leafs Hockey Club as we know it will be finished. Never to come back.

    Better win.

    Please just win in regulation that’s all. 4 point game. If you can’t show up for these games then what games would you show up for?

    Would like to see how Nylander does against tight checking teams. Hope he gets on the board; don’t care much about HDCF% or CF% etc.....

    Just score Willy; rack up the points

    Remember when Pat Quinn totally squashed Yashin that playoff series by using Corson to completely neutralize him?

    Someone show Babs that video and then show him Pastrnak vs. Leafs highlites.

    Hyman is the best we have. Maybe pickup a better one at the TDL?

    Leafs also got away with a ton of obstruction and some dirty plays. It was a different time, tactics have changed and it's all about speed now.

    Based on what we've seen so far this year, I have a pretty good idea.

    It’s not just Pastrnak tho, it’s that whole line. We’ve never been able to completely shut them down

    Oh for sure. You have to have speed and hustle and grit and never-give up attitude to cover Pasta in today's NHL. Who wants the job on the current team? Who could do it best?

    I heard that's Babs plan to line match Tavares against Bergeron but we will see. I think Hyman could do it but he has not had that type of role before.
    Boston will counter with Chara as much as they can against against Matty.

    Just gotta outscore Pasta. So probably only need 5 or 6.

    Would he a perfect game for Nylander to break out. 2 goals 2 assists?

    I just want Pasta to stop beating us like a rented mule every game. Neutralize him. Let someone else on that team beat us for a change?

    Obstruction is horse**** anyway. Refs just use it on a whim in order to level things up. Happens so often every game its unreal.
