GDT - Maple Leaves @ Sabres - December 4, 2018 - 7:30 PM (EST)

Recommended Posts

As much as I can't stand when the Sabres get a nationally televised game, it is nice to hear a broadcasting crew that is unbiased and to hear their point of view. Regis McGuire is super smart and Marv Albert Jr is ten times the announcer Doc Emrick is.

Is it just me, or do I see Eichel lose control of the puck and give it away ALL the freaking time, usually trying to show off his uh, skills.  Afinogenov anyone.

He shortened his stick this off season. It has had a negative effect on his shot and stick handling I'm but helped his board battles and defense. Trade offs

I was in my car and had to listen to most of the 1st period.  I hate to say it, but Dan Dunleavy is terrible from a play-by-play standpoint.  I could not visualize the game with only his commentary.  I never noticed this before because I had the benefit of television to see the action.  I hope Rick sticks around a while.

I don't mind the 0-0 start.  I do mind the chippy stream I'm getting.

Bogosian made about four dumb plays at the end there. 

When you play the Leafs, you need to keep the puck in your team's possession, and you need to avoid icings. That way, the Leafs' offense doesn't have the puck. Pretty simple formula. 

Other than that, fantastic period by the Buffalo Sabres, and it's a shame we couldn't cash in. We need to start burying our chances right away!

The shortened stick angle hasn't been proven to my satisfaction yet. There's a podcast where he talks about having shortened his stick, but it sounded like it's been for his whole NHL career.

Didn't like how the period progressed, but the Leafs are gonna get their chances. Come out strong in the second! 

Sabres came out flying in the first, but the leafs handled our pressure and counter punched late there. Still 0-0, but it's important the Sabres make a push back in the 2nd

Once RJ retires they will need a dedicated radio only PBP Announcer.

Same it's been dreadful 

But in my case, you get what you (don't) pay for (I pay for NHL TV but they assume I can afford a cable bill too for an entire year so that I can watch 5 sabres games)

Am I the only  one annoyed by the constant shift in camera perspective? For me, it really disrupts the flow of watching the game.

We dominated, but the longer it went, the more it felt like the Leafs were going to pop one against the play.

Love how the boys are going for it, especially from the back line. Housley hockey.

You are more polite than even me in this particular instance.  I was going to say it was just him.

I don't know what your burden of proof is, but I believe it enough based on his comments and my game observation this year

In the podcast he said he's taken a little off each year, no? It's shorter now than it was last year. Or he just magically forgot how to stickhandle, but it was obvious to me from the first period of the first preseason game it was even shorter than last April which was shorter than his first year.

I asked during the Sabres-Wings game, and now I have to ask again:

Is it bad luck when a black cat crosses in front of the Sabres game?

Yep. Really fun hockey to watch. We went toe to toe with them. 14-7 shots but I was always worried the Leafs would get a quick odd man rush. We have to score. The Rasmii look great, which is nice to see in this obviously huge game, on national TV, after a couple disappointing one goal losses. 

If anything, that period made me feel we are a legit team.
