Leafs @ Islanders - 7:00PM on TSN 4
Tonight the Leafs head to the dump on Long Island for the last time ever. Mark Masters reminded everyone today of the great times had by some of our favourite Leafs at Veteran's Memorial Coliseum:
Leafs w fond memories of Nassau Coliseum: * Gardiner's 1st NHL goal was here * Kadri's 1st hat trick * JVR's 1st (& so far) only hat trick— Mark Masters (@markhmasters) February 12, 2015
But tonight is the last time they will ever set foot in this asbestos filled pee-pee soaked heck hole. It's about to be Blow'd Up. Or maybe it will just sit there empty. Who knows!
So what happened the last time these two teams played each other back in October?
The Leafs won! Kessel scored twice. JvR got a sexy goal (all of his are, of course), oh, and so did Roman Polak. Even David Clarkson scored!
On Kessel's performance, JvR was quoted "That's how it goes. He doesn't need room to be able to put (pucks) in."
October was a fluke.
Once again today Clarkson maintained that him getting scratched was msg to team & not indictment on his play— Mark Masters (@markhmasters) February 12, 2015
I guess it's everyone else's fault.
So what are the Leafs lines for tonight?
Horachek uncommitted re: line combos for tonight; he'll think about it this afternoon; so no guarantee Kessel starts with Booth-Smith— Mark Masters (@markhmasters) February 12, 2015
Oh and Siegel now believes Clarkson is now confirmed back in the lineup and Bernier is in net.
You know who is playing for the Islanders? GRABBO AND KULI!
I guess I really don't know what to talk about here tonight. I have so little motivation to care.
But hey, I just went to the Islanders website, and the splash page is advertising these limited edition New York Islanders-Inspired Blue and Orange all Position Pillows! Get it now while quantities last!
