    Maybe. But I still think it's a big jump for Babcock to get from "I might turn to this guy as my third line center" to "I'm going to drop him down to the fourth line".

    Goat has also been perfectly adequate as our 4th line center, so that might give Babcock pause as well. The one thing that could maybe turn things in that direction would be if, during Kadri's absence, Ennis pots some goals and Moore continues to look good. Then maybe Babcock would rather take the Goat out of the lineup instead of one of Ennis or Moore.

    well, I think Babcock has been excusing marleau's play this year by continuing to refer to him "stepping up in the playoffs". so if he doesn't actually step up, then things might change.

    DeBrusk & Krug both on the ice for Boston's morning skate.

    Really can't believe Krug's not hurt with the way he wobbled off the ice after that hit.

    True enough. One can hope.

    I can't believe that he's not caught up in the concussion protocol at minimum.

    The amount of energy necessary to refute bullshit is an order of magnitude larger than is required to produce it.

    he's concussed. should not be playing. like hedman shouldn't have been playing.

    it might benefit us anyways, like hedman's horrific play beneffited columbus.

    Yeah, there's no doubt really.

    Though if the end result is that he ends up leaving partway through this game and leaving the Bruins D a man short, or he gets a second impact that knocks him out of the rest of this series for sure, then selfishly that's all the better for our chances. You have to think Leaf forecheckers will also be targeting him hard.

    Looking forward to Muzzin putting Pasta on the ice, he definitely took his number after that charge in game 2.

    This all day long. Don't do anything stupid, but anytime you get to rattle him even a little, take it. Shouldn't take much to get him out for tonight and the rest of the series.

    Yep. No Kadri-esque head-shots, but finish clean checks on him at every opportunity.

    And it's funny---for as much flak as the Leafs took for their defensive depth coming into the playoffs, they're in a better situation than Boston.

    Part of the reason why they're probably so desperate to get Krug back in there is their defensive depth sucks.

    With Connor Clifton already out, they're turning to 30 year-old journeyman Steven Kampfer to fill in on their bottom pairing. And if Krug was out too, the next man up would be 22 year-old Jakub Zboril, who has two NHL games to his credit and by all reports hasn't been playing well in the AHL but is the best option they've currently got.

    Yeah, I did a bunch of posts after the deadline when idiots were screaming "defensive depth!!!". The Leafs were and are in much better shape regarding defensive depth than any other contender in the east and it's not really close. Boston would kill to have Marty Marincin sitting around waiting for 2-3 injuries right now.

    as someone who has suffered multiple concussions, and has post-concussion syndrome, there are very few universes in which Krug did not reaggravate his conky.

    but yeah, I think this will work to our advantage ultimately.

    does anyone else expect the refs to call a much tighter game tonight? I think there will be a lot of penalties early to set the tone.

    would be nice if our PP woke up.

    Go Leafs Go. My Toronto sweep prediction is long gone, but let's get back on track tonight. Going to the game. Ready to throw a Kadri jersey on the ice from the nosebleeds.
