Impressive win by the Leafs. 

A desperate Vegas trying to break out of a slump, bringing everything they got, playoff like intensity.

Leafs young guns come up big and cut them to pieces anyways.

Salt o' the earth road Leaf fans louder in Vegas than the home fans, Leafs traveling well in Sin City.

Andreas Johnsson is second only to Elias Pettersson in rookie scoring, Brayden McNabb actually did us a favour taking him out, Johnsson is scoring his way off the team, need to chop him down just to keep the cap hit in check.

The Loafs were clearly partying in Vegas last night, because they haven't even showed up for this game in Arizona, to say that they are mailing it in, is an insult to letter carriers everywhere.

Mike Babcock Country Club lives.

Hey NHL, what's with all the Huawei shit? Can that Huawei sign be any bigger or brighter? The one that's always right in our face, front-row centre, throughout the intermission sportscast commentary-

How about shut the damned advertizing off while the discussion is about hockey? Or go to hell.

Rogers has to make back the $5.2 billion it spent on NHL broadcast rights in Canada. I mean, they kind of overpaid there.

They really did, I know it's hockey in Canada and all, but still, overpay city.

It's a classic case of the Canadian Nanny Police State overspending and then having to go cap in hand to the Chinese Communists to fund the Potemkin Village

Classic Potemkin Village, that's not Hockey Night in Canada anymore, wasn't before the Chinese Communists took it over neither.

It's a metaphor for Canada itself, presenting the facade of good ol' Hockey Night in Canada, while behind the scenes it is Beijing pulling the strings, because other capital is fleeing Canada in favour of the quality of American freedom.

This is what the Fake Country looks like.

It's such an overpay, especially considering it's extremely easy to watch any game you want for free, hard to make $5.2 billion back when only a tiny bit of resourcefulness gets one around the paywall that funds them.

Of course, the Toronto Star says be at peace, Chinese Communist takeover is all good;

But Rogers is doing nothing wrong, said Sui Sui, an associate professor at Ryerson University and an expert in Canada-China trade relations within the Ted Rogers School of Management.

Sui pointed out Huawei has relationships with Canadian universities, other companies as well as broadcasters.

“The concern is … these companies should do something, right, like stop working with (Huawei)? But I don’t think so. This is an issue between the U.S. and China,” said Sui. “For us (in Canada), it’s an opportunity to work with this company and have foreign investment.

Mike Babcock Country Club completely phoning it in at home, getting rinsed by the Habs.

Most overrated coach in the history of hockey.

Mind blowing comeback.   Third period was Stanley Cup Finals intense.   Leafs down 3-0, comeback to win it with one minute left 4-3, then add two empty netters for 6-3.

Haberta in shock.   Mike Babcock Country Club ftw

Avs are back, baby!   They quit sulking and just played.  

What the fuck is up with the Preds?

Moreover, whatever happened to that Patrik Laine guy, you said was better than Matthews?

I said he was a better pure shooter than Matthews, which might still be true even with the slump, but Matthews ain't even that far behind in that metric, if he's even behind at all. I did note at the time, that picking between Matthews and Laine's shot, is obvious hair splitting.

Matthews has a much better nose for the net, is the better and more well rounded goal scorer, is playing a far more important position, and he's just a better player in general.

Ovechkin still the top shooter in the league though, clearly jumped the gun by saying otherwise.

I'm just rallying around my sons, Auston and Mitch, I actually love, love, love Patrik Laine, second coming of Mario Lemieux.

I am perplexed as to what his problem is, but based on the anecdotes of  O-Dog, I suspect it is the coach, because apparently Maurice is a dick.

I could see Paul Maurice getting on his nerves, sounds plausible to me, but goal scorers are inherently streaky, so could just be an extended slump. Never know when he might pop off for five goals in a game, like he did earlier this year, he's probably just gripping the stick too hard is all, long term I wouldn't be too worried about it.

To wit, Imagine if Laine played for the Mike Babcock Country Club?  Patrik is an artiste, Babcock is overrated, but he's not a bad coach therein.

I used to have these arguments with my father,  he was a Babcock in terms of his play, but in terms of my play,  he was a Maurice.

Hence why I never made it to the NHL and became a soldier instead.

None the less, I was the one who held his hand while he died, all if forgiven, I just wish he had lived to see my sons Auston and Mitch.

Breaks my heart that my Da never lived to see Mitch Marner.

I wish they would get off to better starts though.  They always seems to go down 2 - 0 every game.
