Toughest game of the road trip. Avalanche are red hot, both their forwards and their goalie, and we're on the 2nd in two nights.

Reimer's gonna have to be good and our forwards are gonna have to be opportunistic.

Dont have a good feeling on this one; 5-2 Avs; Reimer pulled after letting 2 goals on 39 shots in first period

This feels like one that Reimer will have to steal, for sure.

number17
01-21-2014, 04:20 PM
This is gonna be a tough game for sure ... would be nice if we can extent the win streak to 6 but it will be very, very tough.

Reimer is most probably gonna be rusty, just like he was in his last outing (still got the W though), and while we caught a few breaks last night I think the bounces will even out tonight ... tough tough win.

TimHorton
01-21-2014, 04:22 PM
Randy really will have to roll 4 lines tonight. We looked exhausted after 40 minutes, and playing at altitude isn't going to help.

Don't worry. On this team, Riemer gets pulled long before 39 shots. Only Bernier has that 39 shot luxury.

Yeah, if we win this 2nd of a back to back at a mile up, I'll be royally impressed. :)

This will be a tough one to win. As some have noted, Reimer will have to be at the top of his game (which will be very difficult given how little he's played).

blacksheep
01-21-2014, 08:34 PM
Victim complex.

The real victim is the goalie who played so well for us in the playoffs that he got replaced.

hockeylover
01-21-2014, 08:37 PM
This is gonna be a tough one but we really need to keep picking up points here and give ourselves a little breathing room.

JaysCyYoung
01-21-2014, 08:43 PM
Victim complex.

It's really gotten ridiculous around here from the usual suspects. If Reimer outplayed Bernier, which he has not, he would be receiving the bulk of the starts.

As it is, he has failed in that quest.

hockeylover
01-21-2014, 08:52 PM
People need to just stop. Our starting goalie has like a .927 so pretty much STFU. It doesn't make a lick of sense to have a goalie debate when you're getting some of the best goaltending in the league.

TimHorton
01-21-2014, 09:03 PM

Reimer was great keeping the puck out. He'll need two more similar periods. The Avs will almost certainly come out flying in the second (though they must be totally puked over that period!).

What I like about this period was the defensive responsibility. Orr took a stupid penalty early, but the Raymond call was charmin soft, and the Leafs took it like pros and it gave them life. No matter what, I loved that we got the puck out well and transitioned nicely. We got some nice goaltending and some great play from franson of all people. I don't know what they said to him but if he can keep that up that'll certainly do.

They made simple passes--but they didn't just dump it out. They made smart passes and tried hard to battle in the neutral zone. Despite the shot totals early, after the penalty kills I knew the worm would turn soon, and it did.

As for Lupul, he hasn't been the same since his foot injury. Of course, it could just be an off-season. He was historically incredibly inconsistent pre-Leafs.. he'd look like an allstar for a 20 game stretch and a scrub for the next 20 games. He did put together a few good years in a row though, so I thought he was over it. Guess not. I wouldn't mind it as much if he worked harder defensively, that's for sure.
