  1. Tim Bayer says:

    Rielly scratched again.

  2. Tim Bayer says:

    Looks like Ranger’s out too and Liles is in. What’s with Randy’s infatuation with Fraser?

  3. Tim Bayer says:

    And Holland on the fourth line? Makes no sense.

  4. Tim Bayer says:

    @MapleLeafs: “#SEAofBLUE Q1. Predict the final score & 1st #Leafs goal scorer. Just use #SEAofBLUE in your reply”

    4-2, Raymond.

  5. Tim Bayer says:

    Also, I’m not a fan of #SEAofBLUE. It’s just a blatant rip-off of Calgary’s Sea of Red.

  6. Tim Bayer says:

    Interesting GO SLENFS GO chant

  7. Tim Bayer says:

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  8. Tim Bayer says:

    Don’t mess with JvR during office hours

  9. Tim Bayer says:

    But there does seem to be a, uhhhh, #SEAofBLUE at the CTC tonight.

  10. Tim Bayer says:

    LOL Phaneuf hitting Ryan into the post

  11. Tim Bayer says:

    WHEW what a release by Kessel

  12. Jeffrey Langridge says:

    Nice to see a powerplay goal followed by a successful penalty kill by the Leafs

  13. Tim Bayer says:

    Jerry better get more than four minutes of ice time or I’m getting #FREEJERRY trending

  14. Tim Bayer says:

    Healy just sounds like a cranky, bitter old man

  15. Tim Bayer says:

    Wheeler scored! That’s good for at least two of my fantasy teams that I never check

  16. Tim Bayer says:

    Nice shot by Ashton

  17. Tim Bayer says:

    WOOO HITZ

  18. Tim Bayer says:

    AHHHHH WHAT IS HAPPENING

  19. Tim Bayer says:

    When Kadri hits he hits like a truck

  20. Tim Bayer says:

    ANOTHER penalty for McClement.

  21. Tim Bayer says:

    Of course it’s MacArthur. Had to be MacArthur.

  22. Jeffrey Langridge says:

    McClement needs to stop taking penalties, he’s supposed to be our best penalty killer. Can’t do that in the box.

  23. Tim Bayer says:

    Who was the last Leaf to wear 26? Carl Pilar?

  24. Tim Bayer says:

    LOL at MacA flipping out

  25. Tim Bayer says:

    A capable fourth line????? Do my eyes deceive me????

  26. Tim Bayer says:

    Ya’ll see this?

    @Dr_Habs: “Here is the Thornton attack. It’s gruesome. Hockey sucks sometimes.

  27. Tim Bayer says:

    the whistle went you dummy sens fans

  28. Tim Bayer says:

    Wow. I didn’t see the part where Orpik was laying on the ice like that. Despicable.

  29. Tim Bayer says:

    OHMIGOSH THat was so beautiful

  30. Tim Bayer says:

    I AM CRYING

  31. Tim Bayer says:

    LOL 10 min misconduct

  32. Tim Bayer says:

    I missed that JML shot when he was away

  33. Tim Bayer says:

    ME HATE PENALTIES

  34. Jeffrey Langridge says:

    Boy, can the Leafs ever stop taking penalties.

  35. Tim Bayer says:

    that had to have been an intentional offside by Kessel. He wasn’t even trying to get onside.

  36. Tim Bayer says:

    whoa another goal!

  37. Tim Bayer says:

    they gave Gardiner so much space to rip that

  38. Jeffrey Langridge says:

    Good night in the pool for me. JVR and Kessel are getting their share of points.

  39. Tim Bayer says:

    good call. Methot pushed JvR. Pretty simple.

  40. Jeffrey Langridge says:

    Stupid penalty by Cowen.

  41. Tim Bayer says:

    ahhh tough luck for Kessel there

  42. Jeffrey Langridge says:

    YAY! MORE PENALTIES!

  43. Tim Bayer says:

    I totally forgot Frazer McLaren is playing

  44. Tim Bayer says:

    31 shots already for Ottawa????? Doesn’t really seem that way. Reimer hasn’t faced too many difficult ones it seems.

  45. Tim Bayer says:

    Nothing like a game in Ottawa to get the Leafs out of a funk

  46. Jeffrey Langridge says:

    Uh-oh.

  47. Jeffrey Langridge says:

    You’ve got to be kidding me.

  48. Tim Bayer says:

    Let’s hope history repeats itself.

  49. Tim Bayer says:

    GUNNNAR
