Tavares played. He wasn’t great but had several threats to score. Rugged, solid player that is highest paid Leaf.
Babcock came down with a bad case of P.M.D. (Paul Maurice Disease) where a few of his coaching decisions were questionable. . . . . Maurice makes far more mistakes btw.
Bruins, especially Marchand & Bergeron seemed to start buzzing this game. Leafs pretty much in it despite being badly outshot & having Andersen keep them in it.
Game 7 should be classic. Have to favor Boston but u never know. Chara is 42/43 and will only have 1 full day to recover from 24 minutes of hardcore ice-time.
Leafs have done far better than most experts thought. I had predicted the series would go deep - 6 or 7 and predicted the Bruins to finally advance.
Not tooting my own horn, cuz I’m not the biggest hockey fan/savant out there but I admit erring in the Wpg/St. Lou series. Figured there were only 2 outcomes. St. Louis n 4 or 5. Didn’t count on 6 - but the Jets essentially abandoned G6, allowing the Blues to walk all over them and push the Jets defense into their own net when required.
