I didn't see any hockey yesterday because of the baseball, but I did see a bunch of hoppla about Tom Wilson getting suspended for 20 games.

Did this clown really think the league was worse for Rafi Torres' retirement??

First game was a scheduled loss and the second game was a scheduled win. It went as it was supposed to go.

Tampa Bay starting off the season where we left off against the Caps; slow and sluggish. Making the Panthers looking like an exciting team to watch. Hope we can catch that LIGHTNING that we had last season

Ottawa has been fun to watch these past two games...

...Never thought I'd say that this season. Chabot is amazing. Both returns for Karlsson scored tonight too. That's nice to see

Jesus Toronto... play some fucking defense.  So far, this is exactly the kind of hockey that's expected from them - except the losing to Ottawa part.

Babcock is gonna have non-stop seizures with that defense.

That's cuz the Leafs buttered them up for you.  Lot easier to take on a team on night two of back-to-back.  Would've been embarrassing to lose after sittin around for 3 days to prepare for a team that played just the night before.  And Ottawa too.  Don't throw Patrice's back out pattin him too hard, k?

I wouldn't say that. I'm just a biased Ottawa fan, but it was closer than the score looks. Ottawa came out swinging in the second and looked really good for awhile. Ceci can just sit down and never play again, and Boro goes out of position way too much to make a hit, but for a team that is supposed to be bottom feeders, they look nowhere near as bad as I thought they would. Also, it was the first game this season that Ottawa wasn't badly outshot

Anyways, I'm just going to be defensive all season of Ottawa :lol

And... Matt Murray has a concussion. That only took 2 games  :facepalm:

Not good for the Pens that Murray is not only hurt, but hasn't started strong anyway. Goal tending was my only big concern for the Pens going into the season, so far this hasn't been encouraging.

Hey man, that was more of a shot to J Boy rather than a serious comment about the game.





Oh, so I thought I would share this story. We actually have a picture of Mike Condon on our fridge. He is from Massachusetts and a good friend of his works with my wife. My wife was telling her that our special needs son loves hockey. Well she must've told him, so he sent him a personalized autographed picture.

It says:
"Hey (TAC Jr), All the best!
Your buddy, Mike Condon"


It was really cool to do that. I took a picture of my son in from of our TV with Mike Condon making a save and my son giving him the thumbs up, and she sent it to him.  She told my wife that he thought that was really cool.

Only a week in, and we've got a 6.3 gpg average.  That Toronto/Chicago game was crazy!  4 goals in 2 minutes of game-time to end things.

Auston Matthews is a pretty good shooter - 5 goals on 10 shots.

Yeah... as Gorilla Monsoon would say, "they got whipped like a government mule".

There is some high octane offense happening right now.  Wonder how long it will take for things to settle down, or if this is gonna be a bit of a run and gun season?

Auston Matthews is a pretty good shooter - 5 goals on 10 shots.

That shooting percentage is not sustainable over a full season.  ;) Regression is inevitable!

BTW, I'm fully expecting the Leafs to roll the Red Wings tomorrow.  I'm just glad that, due to injuries to their too old and too slow veteran defensemen, the Wings are forced to play and get a good look at 4 rookie defensemen, who, should probably be staying with the team and learning rather than get sent down to Grand Rapids so they can deploy the human turnstiles that are the veteran defensemen on that team.  So glad they re-signed Mike Green!  ::)

Leafs offense continues to roll.  Both Matthews and the PP on the whole clipping along at 50%.

Your weekly protip and reminder - do not take a penalty against the Leafs.

TSN flashed up a stat of A)how many teams Matthews had more goals than coming in to tonight - I think it was like 7 or 8 teams; and B) how many teams the Leafs (with back-to-back 7-goal games) had more touchdowns than this week - again, something like 7 or 8.  This offense is fun to watch... and their defense is just as scary to watch.

I'd assume the Leafs will score a ton this year, makes perfect sense. I'm still really skeptical about them making a serious run though with their D and goal tending. We will see.

Granted the Capitals were on the second half of a back to back while the Devils haven't played since Saturday, but god damn did we look good in our home opener last night.
