GDT: Ducks vs. Leafs. 7PM, TSN.

Recommended Posts

The Game

Ryan Kesler is expected to return for the Anaheim Ducks against the Toronto Maple Leafs at Scotiabank Arena on Monday. Kesler, a 33-year-old center who has six points (four goals, two assists) in 44 games this season, missed five games with a hamstring injury.

The Ducks have lost three straight while being outscored 17-4 and are 2-11-4 in their past 17 games since Dec. 18. Goalie John Gibson , who allowed six goals on 14 shots in a 9-3 loss to the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday, is expected to start

Goalie Frederik Andersen is likely to start for the Maple Leafs, who are 3-4-1 in their past eight games.

 

Players to watch

Ducks forward Daniel Sprong has four points (three goals, one assist) in his past four games.

Maple Leafs center Auston Matthews has scored in three straight games.

 

They said it

"Kesler is a very competitive guy. If there is one player in that dressing room that we don't have to worry about ever coming out and being in a compete mode, he takes the challenge personally, whoever he is going to play against. His challenge is to outplay that player he's playing across from and that's a huge step for our hockey club." -- Ducks coach Randy Carlyle

"Not to pay attention to that, that doesn't mean anything. You've got to come focused on what you can do and make sure you prepare your way just like any other night. You have to come and do your job and make sure you're ready to go." -- Maple Leafs goalie Frederik Andersen on the Ducks

 

Ducks projected lineup

Rickard Rakell -- Ryan Getzlaf -- Corey Perry

Devin Shore -- Adam Henrique -- Jakob Silfverberg

Nick Ritchie -- Ryan Kesler -- Daniel Sprong

Derek Grant -- Carter Rowney -- Patrick Eaves

Jake Muzzin -- Morgan Rielly

Jake Gardiner -- Nikita Zaitsev

Travis Dermott -- Ron Hainsey

Frederik Andersen

Garret Sparks

Scratched: Igor Ozhiganov, Justin Holl

Injured: Tyler Ennis (broken ankle)

 

Status report

Ennis took part in the morning skate, his first on-ice session with Toronto since breaking his ankle Dec. 22, but won't play.

 

Stat pack

Gibson has allowed three goals or more in eight of his past 12 games. … Rielly has four assists during a three-game point streak.

 

Hopefully we can be the reason that Carlyle gets fired. Fuck them up!

Holzer still plays?

I never get why commentators have to refer to a guy as a former member of a team years after he last played for them and isn't a notable guy in their history. 

 

Holzer played just over 50 games spanned over a few seasons years ago. He doesn't deserve "former leaf" mentioning.

Yet our offence can’t capitalize on shit 

Their goalie who was bad in the ASG is standing on his head though.

There was one example of us being soft along the boards and the opposition gaing control.

McQuaid doesn’t change that when he can’t gain possession of the puck... ever.

Says the one who believes that hitting the opposition does not matter because you only see a slice of pie and not the whole thing.

How did Zaitsev just move buddy behind the net at the dying seconds in our end?  He didn't
