    I'm a bit hungover and groggy, perhaps there's a thread on this somewhere. :dunno:

    Regardless, tonight is a really important game.

    Prediction: The team that scores the most goals may end up with the W.

    Are Orr & MacLaren in the lineup?

    I would think the Leafs would come out flying after such a heartbreaking loss in game 7.

    I hope the B's play well for a full 60.

    Orr was scratched last night. Not sure about MacLaren, I'm sure he'll be out there. Bozak and Bolland are out, too. I wonder if we'll see JVR as their #1C tonight. :naughty:

    Pretty important game. Got some momentum last game and this might just be the game to light a fire under our ass and go on a huge winning streak. Not that standings really matter at this point, but we can get to one point below 1st in the division. Once we take that, not sure we'll lose it.

    Krug with another big game tonight. Lucic always does well against the Leafs, too.

    Leafs played last night and had to travel ... so this should be some kind of advantage.
    Like it was last Saturday against the Islanders. :sarcasm:

    I hope the Bruins score two goals in the last minute to refresh the Leafs memory.

    Looks like someone didn't watch the Sharks/Sabres game this week. :naughty:

    Got a bad feeling about this tilt but we'll see. I thought we were going to stomp the Islanders a week ago and look how that turned out. Maybe a week later, today it will be the polar opposite.

    Pre-Game thread? The Official Game Day Thread Mafia is going to cut your head off for this.

    Anyway, I hope Dougie Hamilton gets an assist or something and the crowd is still dumb enough to chant Thank You Kessel

    The Leafs played last night but on the other hand they are returning to Boston for the first time since the epic collapse/comeback so that should motivate them.

    There should be chances against this Toronto team their d turns over the puck quite a bit from what I have seen. I say Bruins take this one.

    I'll be there. Taking a friend to her first Bruins game. She's psyched. :)

    Also, Joffrey Lupul is quite pretty but his bod doesn't hold a candle to Chara's. ;)

    But we got 30 viewers in here! Clearly people were deprived of insightful pre-game analysis, I'm just giving the people what they want (nude pics and no insightful analysis).

    Just love watching Bruin's - Leafs games, they have such a great vibe to them. I'm very happy the Leafs decided to partially emulate the Bruins, they play the game the right way in my opinion.

    I don't as a Leafs fan have a lot of faith in bringing back 2 points tonight from Beantown, but have a feeling it will be played a lot like a playoff game. And each of these games during the season will be a battle before the eventual war of the playoffs.

    Good luck, just not too much luck :)

    Orr didn't play last night, has some kind of minor injury most likely. No word on if he's playing tonight but I wouldn't bet on it.

    All good things take time. I'm sure the GDT will be up soon.
