Not really. It was a patient effort, top cheese.

Granted it was in a 4-3 loss to the Wild but as Brady points out, the monkey is off Nylanders back and he can build on something.
He had a couple shots on net, Babcock gave him some time on the PP and he looked good. Now he’s playing some meaningful minutes, he’ll start to fill it up and he better. After losing Sparks (who took a puck off the head in practice which probably pisses Millard off like CRAZY) and Andersen means the Leafs need to score a shitpile of goals if they want to win games. If Nylander can keep the poop out of his pants.
Marner had two more btw. My friend Gerry had the tweet of the night about Marner not making it to the ASG.
Going to look weird when Marner wins the Hart and he didn’t make the All-Star team.

I’m starting to question who’s better. Marner or Matthews, for real.
