The OOT was a real dog last night... makes tonight’s 2 points even more important to snag. They have to have these 2 points. There’s no other way around it. Mucho important. Need to win.

If 97 is out... eep.

1 Cup

No team in the NHL can absorb losing its entire #1 F line:
Neal & McDavid injured & Kassian has been demoted the last few games.
That said, most teams don't have a 2nd line like the one we've had for the last 6 weeks.

There are 2 ways Tippet could approach the lines tonight given that he's got last change.

1) Keep Leon's line intact and simply make it the #1 line
2) Split up Leon & Nuge, have them center lines 1 & 2

I think a case can be made for either strategy, but ultimately I think they will need to have them both at C.

Also, it's time that Kassian steps up his game, and perform as a top 6 forward again.

I would roll out something like this:

Gagner Leon Yamo
Chaisson Nuge Kassian
Khaira Sheehan Archibald
Haas Cave Russell

That ain't no cup winning line-up, but it might spread the offence up enough that the bottom 6 could saw off. Also, if Kassian and Chaisson could both elevate their games to where they have been at times, now would be the time to flip that switch.



I make music.

Didn’t he get a fine for abuse of an official earlier this year? He could be the ying to Connor’s yang. Leon who?

Can you imagine him on Connor's wing? Assuming no amputation is coming.

2015/2016 - This Kool-Aid tastes like McDavid flavoured Drain-O.
2016/2017 - This Kool-Aid is starting to taste like juice.
2017/2018 - I'm drinking this Kool-Aid, in hopes that it's Drain-O.
2018/2019 - Another round of Drain-O, good sir!
