I know these media guys tend to just throw names out there, but Mangiapane is probably better at RW than Tkachuk.  Maybe.

The Backlund experiment is still a thing, but what that thing is I don't know.

He's having a down year and seems to have polluted any line he's played on.

Janko in over Rinaldo is just a skills thing.

Maybe he has waited long enough and will finally equal Rinne in goals for the season.

 

Overall, I am happy with 3 of 4 lines.

Fast start is needed against the Leafs, who have few problems scoring goals.

Given his play recently i'm surprised it's not Talbot to be honest. I don't disagree I'm just surprised.

Rittich was dialed in too.

I would go to Talbot against OTT.

 

They have a long break, so it's important to have them both with recent games.

May not be real, but at least the ASG is something to suit up for.

I like Backlund, but not with Gaudreau and Monahan..   and then it has to be considered that he is on track for his worst season since 2014/15

Yeah I wasn't ragging on him.

He's having a frustrating season.

As such, what is the logic for taking a cold player and moving him to a line that was struggling.

They aren't scoring as a result of him being there.

 

I would be playing him with Lucic and Ryan.

Or even 4th line with Reider and Bennett.

Not liking the start. Not sure why the flames refuse to dictate play. They’d rather wait and see how the other team plays, giving them too many opportunities in the process.

Leafs were all over us but I think we repaid it back later.

 

Good period of hockey to watch.

I think they were all over us because we let them come in and we were lax in our effort. We wait for other teams to show us how the game is going to go before we respond. It would work in our favor if we imposed our game on other teams right from the start.

Need a big 2nd period here...   and a good start would be to get the 1st goal...
