My version of "Quintessential Pierre"...

[end-to-end action happening on the ice]
"That Marcos is a great player who comes from a great hockey family. His great-uncle Claude was assistant equipment manager in the 60's for the Saskatoon Seabirds of the Western Junior League!  That was a great franchise with a fantastic fanbase and they were Hudson Cup runners-up three times in a four year span! Their coach was the great Emeril LaFong, who was Gordie Howe's junior high school coach..."

OtherLittleGuy: Johnny Peirson, Bruins Player and Broadcaster with Fred Cusick, now giving play-by-play for the Gallery Gods


I used to really liked the between period Peirson's Pointers.  He really pressed the important fundamentals in good team-driven hockey.

 The Vancouver Covids aren't on till 5. Still not sure if the Brazilian or South African variant is starting in goal.

The man's encyclopedic hockey knowledge is quite impressive, but damn does he not know how to deploy it in an engaging way.  I remember a couple months ago on the Steve Dangle Podcast they were saying the ideal job for Pierre would be as an assistant GM for an NHL team because you need someone on staff who just knows everything, and it removes the need to convey it in an interesting manner.

Hotby. I'm surprised he got COVID because he can't catch anything this season.

Kuraly fell into a Wilson hit (seriously... he fell into him) that led to minor handbags...

Then Hathaway went full Hathaway and got a 5-min major end ejected.

Yeah, their opening schedule wasn't helping any, but it's been a big disappointment after their success in last year's playoff bubble. Pettersson's lingering wrist injury probably means he won't be back this season. Both Pettersson and Hughes are coming off their entry-level deals so a lot of the future will depend on a kind of deals they get going forward. They both have the same agent so it's likely that they get a package deal, and the salary cap uncertainty league wide probably makes shorter bridge deal more likely.

The Ducks announcers shouldn't sound so surprised that the Ducks scored...it was a 4-1 rush on MAF after all...

One would hope that they get a goal out of it

_/nice passing around to keep things interesting

Four players recalled from the taxi squad, and according to the coach 8-9 regulars out of the lineup for Vancouver.
 
2021-04-18 7:21:05 PM  
William Nylander returns to the lineup and scores early.
1-0

A powerplay that struggles to even get clean zone entries against a recently COVID-ravaged opponent.  Just sad.  At least PP2 managed to generate some chances.

Bye bye Edler.

C'mon Leafs, you've got 5 minutes and they've only got 5 D.  Time to do some damage

I think the Leafs actually scored a power play goal.
What sorcery is this?

19 seconds left in a 5 minute major and we get one, finally

And Vancouver answers back quickly.
2-1

Still no word on Hyman.
 
2021-04-18 8:38:05 PM

My guess is "lower body injury".
 
2021-04-18 8:38:19 PM  

Flappyhead: Still no word on Hyman.


That's not good.  Here's hoping it's only precautionary.  Even with Foligno joining the lineup soon, Hyman's absence would be noticeable.

If DOPS is alright with letting that fly, Sabourin and Simmonds can take turns with Edler.

Considering it's DOPeS, they probably will let him off with a fine.

Then I say the Leafs can let Sabourin and the Wayne Train take turns having their way with Edler.

Don't know about that - it wasn't Tom Farkin' Wilson.
Yes, that deserved a major for being reckless, but I don't he was targeting the knee. Hyman cut inside at the last minute, otherwise it was going to be a straight body to body hit.

Yes, I'm not objective in this.
