Would be nice to bounce back quickly from that ugly loss and beat another contender.

The kings are red hot, but last time we played them we dominated them pretty thorougly, only to see young Martin Jones stand on his head and steal his team a win.

Looks like quick is in net tonight though, and his matchup vs. Bernie should be interesting.

Franson and jvr are back....but holland is out with the same stomach flu franson had...whcih means kuly back to C....And clarkson back to the 2nd line.


Not sure if its 7 D or not....

We should have a game that's much mroe similar to the Ducks than to the Sharks ... we just flat our didn't have our legs in the Sharks game, and this team isn't gonna win too many games if we don't get speed.

LA is red hot just like the Sharks, but there's added incentive for Bernier & Co. to beat his former team. If we lose tonight we got no excuse. If we even get a point out of tonight's game, then we'd go .500 vs. 3 of the hottest teams in the West - LA, ANA and SJ. I will sign off on that.

KingTucker
03-13-2014, 03:57 PM
Yeah apparently GMs are griping about that Anaheim-San Jose back to back, get into the other city at 4 a.m. or something then little rest and playtime soon after.
I can't find the stat now, but it looks like there's only one team that has won both of those in recent memory. A day between those games would be great...

An ROW would be ideal here. Washington and Detroit are pretty winnable, but 4 out of 6 out west would make for a great cushion, and you know Bernier wants this...

Yeah, I think Jonathan Quick and the way he's perceived around the league might be another example of "Cam Ward syndrome". A young goalie that had a great year and won the Cup early in his career, and as a result is consistently viewed as an elite goalie, even though he's been average, or slightly below average for the rest of his career before and since.

Projected Lines vs. LA: van Riemsdyk-Bozak-Kessel. Lupul-Kadri-Clarkson. Raymond-Kulemin-Bodie. (Ashton)-McClement-Orr.

I prefer Kulemin on that Lupul Kadri line but this is what we're left with if Bolland's out.

So when do we start asking ourselves how much better Clarkson is than Orr? Looks like we're going to need a big night from the top line, because I can't see our 2nd line producing with Clarkson on it. Third line looks pretty good though.

I agree that Clarkson ruins that line, but you definitely have to move Kulemin back to C if Holland's out. I'd still prefer Bodie to Clarkson though.

Just when our PK is finally looking a tiny bit better, our PP has stopped producing. I think we have only had 1 PPG since the Olympics.

And that first goal ... biggest culprit is Bernier's juicy rebound ... not sure if it's nerves or what not, but Bernier usually have much better rebound than that.

Still, Gunnarson shouldn't give the D man that kinda time and space, and Phaneuf should do a much better job tieing up Gaborik's stick.

bernier tried to play the rebound to the boards.

there was no biggest culprit. the leafs gave them the zone with speed. the centre wasn't back covering anybody. gunnarsson over committed. phaneuf didn't pick up gaborik.

the rebound control was fine. unfortuantely, gaborik was right there. normally that goes harmlessly to the half boards.

THat has been the Leafs' problem with the PK all season long. Giving up way too much time and space to our opponent, allow them to pickup speed through neutral zone with ease ... is this looking like another night I don't have to stay up late?

The buds just doesn't look like a team who's shown up to compete though ... let's see if they come out of the 1st intermission looking hungrier, and if not, that will be it.

03-13-2014, 11:01 PM
But you look at how a PK is supposed to look by LA ... it was SO TOUGH for us to get through the neutral zone, and by the time we crossed the blueline we hardly had any speed. It was a good play by the falling Rielly to keep the puck in play, and an excellent pass by Naz to find Dion, but that's how we SHOULD play PK instead of sitting back waiting in our own zone waiting for htem to come.

Yeah, we're wasting him as a PP weapon on the left, I agree entirely. We have Rielly and Gardiner who can both establish possession with Phil on the left side.

And its not like Franson is scoring as the triggerman either. Which is dumb anyway because Phaneuf is one of the best goal scoring dmen in the league.
