Game 1 COVID edition: Canadiens @ Maple Leafs


Recommended Posts

Romanov is looking real sharp.  Anderson is looking good driving the net and streaking down the wing. 

 

I'm not sure I agree with Petry on the 1st PP with Weber as it seems as if the PP units are being given pretty equal time.  I would rather Petry occupying Weber's spot on the 2nd PP, I believe it would be more lethal.

 

These are 2 of the top 3 teams projected in the division, and Montreal looks real good.

Really?   I thought it was a bad luck play on the tying goal. Had it not hit the ref, there wouldn't have been a goal. Also, Drouin did get two assists in this game...I wouldn't qualify that

The main thing is to take the crowd out of it early! Oh, wait...🙄

Powerhorse!!!

Think part of it is that for Petry's options to be optimized a right-hand shot on the other point works bets ... flip of Markov with Souray/Streit/Bergeron

Max who?

But seriously ... Josh's first game in over a year ... excellent

 

For some reason I want to call him Max Power.

That's going to wind up being one of the prettier goals of the year for the Habs, I suspect.  It's always nice to see a set play work.

 

It was a nice goal and perfect timing to end the period but I certainly hope you're wrong on that prediction. 😉

They can still score plenty of others...

 

Stat of the period - Romanov led the Habs in ice time at 8:04.

Sportsnet appears to have finally figured out how to do a first period intermission. Good chemistry, good insights, good stuff.

 

I agreed with everything Burke said for sure.  The Leafs wont make the playoffs if Austin gets injured blocking shots on the PK.  That seems silly to take such a dangerous risk with an elite sniper.

Been awhile since I saw any of them play, but weren't Souray/Streit/Bergeron all righties and Markov a lefty?

Hopefully Matthews gets the memo and proceeds to kill penalties without blocking shots.

TARTAR!!

 

I am a little worried about how confident Romanov was on the blue line that PP, he got away with it, but he was a little too close to giving up a breakaway.

Not sure if it's just me but not a fan of the red goaltending equipment.

 

I agree that the solid red looks really weird. 

 

 

Dammn, Romanov looks like a magician at the blue line.

 

Right arm Tatar!!  Habs get another PP goal.

Hopefully it freaks out the shooters

That outlet pass for the Tatar breakaway was Markov-esque.

Ya, hopefully.  Price is so good that he doesn't need optical illusions.

That's the kind of PP QB we've been missing here since PK left town 

 

Always thought of PK as more of the Bomber than the QB

So Romanov is on the 1st PP with Weber.  I like it all around, I do think if this works, Petry on the 2nd PP will make the PP way more dangerous.

I'm surprised nobody mentioned Edmunson in the 1st on that play that he stepped up.  The Leaf player got knocked silly but he didn't even hit him.  The Leaf just skated into him and it was like he hit a brick wall.
