At the end of the third period last night I wondered aloud, Hey, is Brad Richards playing tonight? A few other people on Twitter had asked the same question. He was practically invisible all night. I think the fact that he saw 10 of his 19 at even strength against Phaneuf and Gunnarsson had a lot to do with it.

  Tonight marks the 590th meeting between these two Original Six franchises. The Leafs enter the game with a 5-2-1 record and a healthy Tim Connolly for the first time this season. Will he mesh with Kessel? Will he help our beleaguered PP? Will he spontaneously combust at some point during the game?

One of the things I’ve been noticing is that in the games they have won the Leafs have been able to roll four lines consistently most of the night. The 4th line isn’t necessarily putting up big minutes, but they play more, and later into the game than when Colton Orr is in the line-up. This gives the Leafs top players a bit of a rest and allows them to play long shifts later in the game.

Oh baby.  There is just something about a Leafs/Habs game. This is the 710th meeting between these storied franchises. Historically the Habs hold a better record against the Leafs, but they have failed to win a season series against the Leafs in a long while. The Leafs had their most consistent effort of the season against Montreal on opening night. Let’s hope they can take advantage of an injury riddled team that has stumbled to a 1-4-1 record that sees them at the bottom of the Northeast Division standings.

                             It's like a freakin' country-bear jamboroo around here- Jonas Gustavsson

 

The Leafs first loss of the regular season was a spectacular one.
