What's going on, everybody? It's your boy.
Leafs to boy Lane with Leafs Lane here.
We're doing a video tonight.
We're gonna talk about the game tonight.
I hope everybody in Canada had their good Thanksgiving.
We had the turkey and everything and now we're back.
Facts talk about the last two games.
Kind of go over what's been going on, and we're gonna talk about the game tonight.
So Manley's to doing good.
At least Look, at least looking better.
I I definitely I know what I said.
Last video about the struggles, but Detroit it wasn't the train wasn't the game where I thought it was perfect.
That definitely was not perfect.
I mean, we're still getting scored on the first goal, still have slopping the first.
But these came out, took care to Trent rate like they came out and they beat Detroit and then last.
And last night was just either.
Last time was awesome again.
Slow starts airhead of something that we were gonna have to get used to.
Here is Lee fans.
I think we're just gonna have to kind of except that that's gonna happen right now until maybe there's a lineup changes.
But I won't talk about what happened in the second period because I think what happened in the second period, well, really good to see from the Leafs.
So even in the first period, Mike Babcock, who everyone says is the stubborn one stubborn guy, stuck with captain to Vera's and minor, and he stuck with it and stuck with it but started the second period.
There's something that I think is underrated, and I think this was this is what the least needed.
He took captain and off the first line and put on Trevor Moore.
So going into the second period, the least were down.
They were down one nothing.
They scored four goals in the second period.
Two of them were on the power play we had Riley Riley had four assists on the goal.
Riley looks good again.
This is really good, because you could tell that Riley was sort of struggling.
So far, he's been trying to get back into it, so I get a little bit of a chest cold right now.
Ah, Frederik Andersen, fantastic tonight made some big stops when we had to, and we're going to dress the Ryan Hartman playing a minute.
But I just wanted to say I really liked seeing Babcock give somebody from the third line extra minutes and saying, You know what, Captain? You're not playing well right now.
Go back down, Go play with the line that's really doing while clicking.
Maybe get your chemistry back and then leave you.
We can revisit you on the first or second line going forward.
I really like that because you see that this team is starting to feel like even in this game, the third and fourth lines or gel in men.
McKay, ev, Kerfoot more KOCE and Tim us off and sure are just They're just playing so well right now.
They were dominant in Detroit.
They were the only lines that mattered.
And coming into this game they were they were on fire and you had to give them respect because if you didn't they were going to run over here.
What's getting Matthew's Marner to Vera's and yachts and more time and more freedom to do things? And that's what the least need they need.
All four lines clicking and now that Riley is getting more comfortable and burying Muslim are looking good.
Maybe this is the start of something good, and I really hope so, because I was really, I just want to say, like at the first period, the shots were 8 to 9 for the Minnesota Wild by the end of the second period.
The shots? We're 20 to 10 for the Toronto Maples.
That was a game where I said, You know, Minnesota only has one win and the leaves did exactly what you want them to do.
They crushed him.
They didn't give Minnesota any breathing room At that first period.
They went for one.
I'm really loving one goal because they kind of started the play more offensively.
So for two of the was the final score.
A man that the least play good in this game, and I think it really seeing you can you can take a deep breath.
I think you can finally start to breathe because that's the game you wanted to see you live in.
Nice to see it against Detroit, but that didn't happen.
But I think this is a game where you guys okay, Maybe we were returning this.
This is turning around for us, and it starts to breathe again.
Start to feel more comfortable again.
That's all you've ever wanted.
So I'm happy with the way that game played out. I have no car.
I have no complaints or anything, so I'm very happy that way.
Leaves played, and tonight we take on a team that has given us trouble.
I would like to sit in the last little bit.
The Washington Capitals, Washington Capitals are currently 32 and two, and we're four to And what? So let's talk about what's going on.
So in the last 15 meetings, the Washington Capitals are tad five, you know against the trauma place.
Also worth noting that Frederik Andersen will not be playing tonight if you're released and he will not be seeing Freddy and that it will be the left handed catcher Michael Hutchinson, that's that's concerning because although a lot of people are saying, Why don't you play Freddy when you need him? Why don't you play Freddy when you need him? This is a more important game.
It should have played them now, and I can kind of kind of agree with that because think Washington you want.
You want to come away with that win.
That's something where you want to say that we beat the Washington Capitals There, there, that you stopped.
They almost They won the Stanley Cup a few years ago.
They've got Ovechkin.
They've got back from his Nets top.
We wanna win this game.
This is a statement game.
But, oh, well, I know what Babcock says, he says.
Take the two points when you get him.
He's very like kind of coaches like that.
Get the two points when we can get him.
If we don't get the two points, let's do the best you can on a back to back situation.
So and that's what you really can't say at this point.
I mean, what else can you say? Like so, Yeah, The Capitals have lost their most recent game.
They lost to the Colorado Avalanche, 63 But I'm expecting that the bounce back tonight, they've got a said.
Ovechkin is always scoring against the Leafs.
He scored 39 goals in 48 Courier games against the Tronic, So expect Alex Ovechkin to pour it on when he places the leaves, he's one of the most phenomenal players I've ever seen.
I did a video on him about his goalscoring guys, guys, the best one of the best goal scores I've ever seen.
I'm expecting that to keep going, and I'm just I just looked at least play good.
They've won two straight.
The trait they've beaten.
Minnesota again was their weaker opponents.
But maybe tonight's the night.
Maybe tonight's the night where we can come in.
Just show everybody what the least really are.
And I'd like to see a priest a competitive game.
I understand that traveling to Washington on a back to back, you can't make up excuses.
You could, but that's not fun.
There's no point in making excuses for why you couldn't win.
Just go win, do your best, played the best game.
You guys can go try to get a win, because excuse you could make up excuses.
But this is the NHL.
Everyone's got back to backs.
Everyone has to play hard.
You just gotta go on, do it.
So my heat of the game for the Leafs can you stay out of the penalty box because Washington's really good on the power play against Lisa, 31% against us on the power play.
That's gonna be crucial.
So we need to stay out of the penalty.
Box Number two is trying to get your best.
Just get your feet going because you're going to be tired.
Just keep your feet moving, keep it at it, just keep going.
And third of all, I just want to say, like, just give Washington a tough times and I just go up there and play the best hockey can If you don't win, It's not the end of the world, but I'd like to see Elise win.
I always want to see the least win, but I say you know you're gonna back to back, so I don't know what's expected.
It I hope to leave, could come up with a little win.
We can go into the next game.
And for Washington, this is Chip.
This is a chance for Washington's a rebound.
I say Washington has a chance to come in and take the leaves and take two points away from police knowing what their current situation is coming on. A back to back.
Washington has that chance to go in and say Okay, you know, we just lost against Colorado.
Let's go win tonight at her home crowd Number two is Ovechkin's gotta show up, but we all know that will always happen.
And I think it's gonna come down.
It could come down to goaltending for breaking Opie.
Bring hope he needs to.
No, that that this is it.
Incense can score at will.
And you can score four goals, usually.
So tighten up the defense.
Make sure you got your all your proper adjustments and everything makes you ready for the least at least need to be ready for the Washington Capitals.
And I'm expecting a really good game to be played here in Washington.
So thank you for everyone to join the broadcast today.
