His game is much more well rounded these days. Doing a lot of thankless work on our side of centre ice.

Kadri last season:

He says he owes it all to Leafs head coach Randy

"Before I didn't really get the impression that I was kind of wanted in the lineup or I really deserved the minutes that I may have gotten," Kadri said following Friday's practice. "With Randy it's a whole different ballgame.

"He makes me feel like I belong here and I can be a big contributor here and I feel like that as well. As a young guy I just needed others to believe in me as well."

The Leafs need to to reduce their shots against by an average of three a period in order to get the numbers down to the level they want.

Bernier on his stats:

"For all his accomplishments, he’s never been one to look back on his stats.

“I never look at it,” Bernier said. “Even if I have a good season or bad season, I don’t look at it.”

It’s a common approach; the past is in the past and you must move forward.

“Even in junior I never really looked at it. To me it’s a win that matters. You could win 6-5 at the end of the year and that matters to me. And what matters is the win and to make the playoffs.”

I didn't think bringing him in was so bad since there weren't any other FA Cs out there. I'd watched him play live in Buffalo when he was pretty good, but when he got here it looked like the concussions had taken their toll. Wasn't the same guy I saw live. He was only in Toronto for 70 games so it didn't faze me.

It's much better to see games live, the TV really scopes it down to three or four players around the puck. Some players have great games when they're not near the puck.

Yes I do, most games I don't really follow the puck, intend to watch players. I used to do a bit of "watching" individual players years ago at junior games for the St. Catharines Blackhawks. Used to try to pick up things like which way a defenceman was better at turning, things like that.

I watch the games and I have a great time seeing games like last night. Then I come on here afterward and it's like an alternate universe of endless "bad stuff." Abused fans with trust issues.

Rewatched last night's game. Some small things I saw.

Booth made two really intelligent, determined plays to keep the puck in on the boards just seconds apart, before heading around the net for his wraparound goal. Looked like the vet he is.

Clarkson tied up a frustrated Dman and blocked Anderssen's view of the cross ice pass leading to Lupul's one timer. Anderssen's was a second behind in setting up. Lupul read it.

Santorelli made a great play even though he was tired, to catch up to Kadri on his goal, making sure Kads wasn't outnumbered on the play and crowing the two D to let Kadri do his thing.

At the end of the second period with time winding down and the Ducks pressing Clarkson gobbled up the puck on the boards and killed the last few seconds of time with two Ducks trying to dig it away from him. Didn't bother trying to chip it or pass it. Just held on until it was safe. We never used to make plays like that.

The healthier Robidas gets the smarter he looks. Winnik looks smart on every shift.

Man can Kessel ever fire a hard, accurate puck.

Just watched the Lupul goal in slo mo. Andersen lost track of the puck on the cross ice pass because Clarkson was screening him in front by tying up the Dman. Lupul unloaded it before he could set up to the side.

I like watching Clarkson. He's often drawing two guys to him in front of the net or in the corners. He's distracting the D in the creas and opening up space for his linemates. He like the third assist on a lot of goals where doesn't get a point.

Exactly. I liked how Booth didn't give up on the puck, two times in two seconds, and dr added it to the net for a chance.

Booth made two great plays on the boards to keep the puck in and alive on the goal he scored. That's the kind of board work that was frustratingly missing n recent years.
