Bobcat’s Post Game Notes, Leafs Edition
Round 1, Game 5
Leafs win, 4-3 over the Tampa Bay Lightning.
-I've noticed a pattern. Toronto won games 1 and 3, Tampa won games 2 and 4. With this in mind i expect Toronto to win this game and Game 7.
-Another too many men penalty? Wooooooow. What is going on with the Lightning? That should not happen as often as it does.
-Stamkos finds a way to score after being shorthanded, and then TJ Brodie takes a hooking/tripping penalty that was likely very soft since I couldn’t see it and the Leafs have been hit with soft penalties all series long, which leads to a PPG by Hedman. Another slow start. You’re killing me, boys.
-Colin Blackwell took a clearing attempt way high. At least he’s okay, but that looked kinda scary.
-Cal Foote takes an arguable dive to get a tripping penalty, and then with 30 seconds left on the power play, Corey Perry takes an UNQUESTIONABLE dive to make it a 5-on-3. What a perfect time for Jack Campbell to start heating up again.
-Michael Bunting gets hit in the numbers by Nick Paul. NO CALL. What the hell, refs?
-The Leafs were hesitating so much that the crowd actually started chanting “SHOOT THE PUCK”. That’s just hilarious.
-The only penalty during the entire first period that I actually thought was warranted was Tampa’s too many men penalty. There has been a lot of flops and dives on BOTH sides. At what point does this become an embarrassment to the league?
-To start the second period the Leafs shoot the puck for once, and they score! The goal was attributed to… John Tavares? Johnny Star-Wars finally got onto the score sheet for the first time this series? Am I reading the right script?
-The second period is a stark, yet welcome contrast to the first. Toronto is keeping the pressure on at all times. I’d expect them to tie the game any minute now.
-Now the Leafs have re-found the play that they showed in game 1. Let’s go on to the third.
-TIE. F*CKING. GAME. What a pass from Long John Silver to Captain Morgan to even us up at two!
-WILL NY THE SCIENCE GUY PUTS THE LEAFS UP BY ONE!!!! SCOTIABANK ARENA IS ROCKIN! That was a great play by Ilya Mikheyev to give Willy that great shot. SCIENCE RULES!
-…whelp. A smothering play by the Lightning gives Ryan McDonagh a wide open slot to take a shot that blows by Soup Man. We’re tied at 3. I should not be this tense. This isn’t even my team, bro.
-Man, Jack Campbell is doing an amazing job in net. I audibly said “SOUUUUP” after that amazing save. Am… am I becoming a pure Leafs fan? Oh dear…
-NUMBER THIRTY-FOUR IS ON THE F*CKIN BOARD! AUSTON MATTHEWS FROM MITCH MARNER, JUST THE WAY WE LIKE IT. ICE THIS THING, BOYS.
-THEY HOLD ON, AND WIN!! Finally, a tightly-contested game in this series! I am super excited for game 6.
That was fun to watch.
