This is a very tough MENTAL game for the Leafs tonight.  Games like tonight go a long way in determining whether your team is upper echelon, or middling.

GLG!

Alright Gents.  Off to bed with a big fat smile on my face.  Best I have felt as a Leaf fan in years.  Enjoy!

@Bring the Cup Home @gjdevlin With our offence, we just need to move the needle a little bit North, and we will be legit contenders.

@Savo43 @gjdevlin I think your observation is correct.  I thought the same thing myself recently.

@Alec Brownscombe @gjdevlin Yes he is.  He's got an entire front office that is all over him about possession.  In fairness, he recognized this problem long ago.  But then he decided it was smart to dress Orr and McLaren, both of which were Horrible for possession.

@B_Leaf @.Kong. Exactly.  Leafs may be onto something here.  Seriously.  Stats heads are baffled, and all are predicting us to fail.  There is nothing I would love more than to say F you.

@mcloki @.Kong. If it were the Leafs outshooting/outchancing the opposition - The MSM would be ALL OVER US for our inability to score.  You can bet your ass of that.

@hometeem @.Kong. @Savo43 I'd really like to see Corsi % For - for Stanley Cup Champs over the last 20 years.

@B_Leaf @.Kong. True, but in this case, from start to finish they outshot/outchanced us.  Having said that, my instincts tell me that top quality chances were close.

@hometeem True.  But Bernier was careful in his enthusiasm.

Interesting - David Booth first in Zone Start % tonight (67%).  Followed by JVR (58%) and Kessel (55%).

That's what I thought...  Kessel, Bozie, JVR tops in Corsi % For tonight.

Gardiner 6th.

@Savo43 @.Kong. @hometeem I wasn't too keen until recently.  I had a war of words with Mirtle about Corsi.  He's relentless on that stat.

@weekendwars The East is highly underated this year.  The top 8 teams might be better than the West.

@hometeem @.Kong. I'll be curious to see how Corsi looks for the 1st line tonight.  I suspect their best in ages.

@Savo43 That's a really tough move to pull off.  Great call by the color guy tonight in pointing out that Kadri knew he didn't have the space for a pass, and was thinking deke from the hashmarks in.

That whole line showed me a new level tonight.  You could see they were committed to proving the pundits wrong.  Don't think for a second that they are not listening to the media.

@Cloud09 @.Kong. I know, I agree wholly.  But I do think this team is constantly trying to improve.  They are on a mission.

@B_Leaf @Cameron19 @ProfessorRance Anaheim not very disciplined tonight.  The unsportsmanlike killed any chance of a comeback.

@Alec Brownscombe @Xxxxxnew I find it fascinating as well.  A Leafs Cup win would set the stats-nerds back 10 years.

Lupul never going to win the Selke, but I loved that play at the end where he dove and prevented a very good scoring chance.

@skiingallday @.Kong. @B_Leaf I like the standing O at the end.  I was at the ACC with my wife for game 6 against Boston.  Wow.  Just wow.  That city is electric when the Leafs are on their game.

Given that we beat the"best team in the league" tonight.  Does this make us the best team in the league?
