    I truly believe we have a wicked counter attack game that's going to catch Columbus off guard badly.

    Our new 3rd line looks fun as hell and Rielly looks back in full form. If Barrie can get his head on straight we got something great.

    Should be. He was in the lineup against Boston.

    I think Anderson is injured. He's a bruiser but coming off shoulder surgery so shouldn't be that big of an issue if he returns.

    Instantly the first time they start running anyone of our stars Clifford could be moved up on the left side to take care of it. He is solid defensively so no harm in doing it. Make sure Muzzin is on the ice at the same time. Right too that the skill guys need a chip on their shoulders to be successful ;)
    It might have been myself that said that. We don’t want penalties and if they run our guys and won’t man up we run their guys i suppose. One way or the other they need to know we ate coming.

    It's the correct and only call to make.
    Yes, it will feel and essentially look like playoff hockey, but it's a play-in round before the big tournament.

    So yeah, more practice.

    That's funny - I heard the same, that Hawks kid (whathisname) supposedly broke the record for most points in a first playoff game . . . well, what is it? Playoff games for Chi-town, and non-playoff games for the Buds?
    They have to make up their minds.

    Or it could just be media making up stuff as they go along.

    It'll definitely be interesting. Columbus is probably the best team at defending the rush in the league, but the Leafs are the best team at moving the puck up the ice. CBJ is going to struggle to generate offense mightily I think

    We need to crush them in game 1 so that they don't get their hopes up. It's the merciful thing to do.

    This still all comes down to Andersen. Guessing that if he can put up .905 + the Leafs win the series easily.

    Anderson playing hurts Columbus' chances more than it does ours.

    Is there anywhere to watch the game while maintaining social distancing? Like Maple Leafs Square or some outdoor venue? I don’t have cable

    If this wasn't so soft Columbus is no match against us on paper.

    Game day. So many different feelings going on after watching hockey all day yesterday.

    Please no injuries off the bat. Worried CBJ style heavy play will not be matched by any similar intensity on our side and we'll get eliminated. Optimistic our guns will come through. I just don't know lol.

    Don't worry my guy! We got enough toughness to match you'll see. Our team isn't as soft as it once was.

    Sucks. If the referees just did their jobs we would've had him for both series. Also the Parros/Boston problem.
