    Best game of the season IMO

    Very good third, save for the one fire drill shift.

    Andy is getting his groove back. Matthews' keeps rolling

    But we can’t play defense...?!?!?!?

    But we can’t beat a playoff team?!?!?

    But we are a one dimensional team?!?!?

    If you asked me if I'd take being 5-1 after having 4 of the first 6 games on the road, including against the defending cup champs, would I take it?

    I'll tell you what, bucko, you better damn well believe I happily would. Still no respect on the main boards though...

    This was very much a statement game from Toronto, particularly when you consider 3 things.

    1. Caps are reigning champs.
    2. Caps got blown out 6-0 their last game and should have had something to prove.
    3. Leafs show they can play some defence.

    What a win!

    Our D adjusted for the third period.

    Matthews and Kappenen most noticable.

    On D

    Dermott and Hainsey looked great

    Gardiner and rielly found themselves later on

    Extremely good third period, that's the team I want to see more of (excluding the nightmare shift from the JT line).

    Anyone who's not on board with trading Nylander for D is out to lunch.

    There will be no Stanley Cup in Toronto with the way this blueline is.


    Terrific win tonight though. Bend but don't break, right? Toronto weathered a storm and took it to 'em in the third.

    Gardiner easily had his best game of the season. Two great assists and some great defensive plays.
