    I can see how people would think that. My take is that it was good to acknowledge what has gone on around the world before getting back in to this whole hockey thing.

    Sorry if this has been asked before - any reason why the Leafs goal horn was wrong, last night?

    I didn't notice a huge difference without fans ... I just watch the hockey.

    They were okay.

    Crappy PP for Habs, fortunate PK for Leafs ... the difference.

    First game not a lot to take away.

    That was my comment in the GDT last night.

    I was looking forward to sitting back and watching a hockey game like I "used to" only to have a 5 minute reminder that I was, in fact, not doing that at all.

    The intent was to negate any 'home team' advantage for Toronto or Edmonton by having the designated home team for each game use that room.

    Having said that, Montreal would probably have been happier in the visitor's room, as that's what they are used to when playing here.

    Bruins will be using the Leafs room too, apparently.

    Yeah I'm not going to over analyze their performance in an exhibition game. It's why I said they are the kinds of players who will take it easy in a meaningless game. They will likely be a lot more engaged starting Sunday. Nothing to talk about really.

    No, having a long beard like this makes you look like a bum:

    Yes it is very impressive. And if we win the series against the Jackets then he will still be 18 to start the actual play-off series.

    To confirm, I checked when he turns 19, it's on September 11.

    Side note: I always thought 9-11 is a crummy birthday to have. It's a foul day.
    But Robertson is not just born on A September 11. He was born on THE September 11, 2001. yikes.

    Late to the party.

    Kerfoot looked great. Robertson has a good motor. Mo looks healthy. Barrie still awful at handling the puck in the D zone. AM trying one too many move but smooth as ever.

    Anderson: solid.

    Lets go boys.

    Clearly he's never grown a beard before.. takes years to perfect the long beard image. You don't just go willy nilly...

    Pretty sure it was a coaching decision to use the away room yesterday so the guys can get used to it. They'll have to do the same for any "away" games going forward.

    The latter is too manicured. You need a team of stylists to work on that thing daily. Not worth it.

    Friedman's got a natural man's beard going, you have to respect it.

    they were also the away team in their own arena using the visiting dressing room. Each “home “ team gets their own arenas goal horn during all of this, so it was Montreal’s last night

    The Leafs were the "visitors" last night, they used the visitors locker room and the Habs used the Leafs usual one. So goal horn was generic I believe.

    The only things missing are the Ten Commandments stone tablets in his arms.

    Engvall was missing in action.
    I thought that Clifford had a strong game and so did the third line in general.
    Reilly was good in the other zone but very weak in his own zone.
    Can't really expect much though as it felt like an exhibition game and most players just want to get the playoffs started uninjured.
