The most annoying thing this year is our 3-3-1 record against this shita$$ team. When we have an overwhelming winning record against every other team.
Sure it's mostly been goalie effects on both ends but still....nowhere near good enough.
We best be winning both these last 2gms against them...
4th game in 6 nights is gonna make this tough, especially against a good possession team like the Habs.
Hopefully the 5 goals last night are a sign of an incoming offensive hot streak because our elite talent just going off would really make the next couple weeks of tough sledding a helluva lot...
A nice clean win here would wipe out most of the bad taste of that losing streak and create some nice separation in the division again - getting us up near a 115pt pt pace while MTL/WPG/EDM would be around a 100pt pace.
Lineups look the same for both teams:
You wouldn't know it from the mood in leafs nation, but we're actually on a nice little run since Fred went out.
