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.
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).
Nice to get some other guys on the board tonight. Solid win.
But but but we can’t score against the good teams!
Lots to like from tonight's game. The bottom 6 did their job.
Great 3rd period response, really WANTED to see that from Leafs.
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.
Meh, we only beat non playoff teams and the Cup champions. Call me when we beat 8th seeds - hf
Fred the MVP tonight
4 of 6 but yeah!
Ozhiganov was very Very good tonight same with Kappy. Freddie also deserves a praise aswell. Best game of the session as a whole
but, but...we were told the Leafs can only beat non-playoff teams!
Gards and Zats are lost out there.
Gardiner easily had his best game of the season. Two great assists and some great defensive plays.
Hyman- Tavares- Marner
Marleau- Kadri- Lindholm/brown
Leivo- Goat- Lindholm/brown/ johnsson
First game of season.
Exhibition is over.
Goals from Lindholm and Leivo.
Kapanen just keeps on rolling.
This year we are getting paid for our many years of Loyalty during the dark times!
I thought theyd **** the bed. These guys are proving me wrong.
No reason to feel bad after that one. Let's see the main boards spin this one lol
