Dominique Ducharme’s performance group returns in the early hours of the night to take advantage of the rest day on Tuesday. This is of great benefit to her, because she can beat the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday night to win, which will have a major blow to the chasers.
“Our department does not have simple games. Whether it’s Calgary, Montreal, or even Vancouver, we were surprised when we returned from COVID, and its profits were very meager.
“In the standings, the two teams are close to each other. You must always be focused and ready to work. This is preparation for the playoffs. In this section, you cannot take a vacation because your opponent will make you look bad ,” the coach added.
Speaking of the playoffs, Auston Matthews expects that the conflict between these two opponents will be close.
In fact, considering the scoring gap in the three games, this has been the case throughout the season. The winning teams in two of the other three games cemented their victory with empty goals.
“There is not much space on the ice. We will have to take advantage of our opportunities. It is also necessary to be patient. We need these two points,” Matthews said.
Before the end of the season, the Canadians and the Canadian teams will fight again and again. Since 1979, we have qualified for the first round of matches between the two teams. If the first round of conflict is realized, the only regret is that it did not compete in front of the audience.
The leaves will again be deprived of Frederik Andersen’s services. Since March 19, the goalkeeper participated in the first training on Monday. Dane, 31, suffered a knee injury.
Moreover, Leafs doesn’t know if he can resume training before the end of the season. If this is the case, DG Kyle Dubas will have to abide by similar rules to the gymnastics recently used by Marc Bergevin.
“We have great ideas for the way to use goalkeepers with Jack Campbell and Dave Richic at the end of the season. Freddie’s vacancy is the only question mark,” Keef said.
In the absence of Andersen, Campbell won the first 11 games of the season and set an NHL record. Also remember that after Dane entered the net, the Leafs never won the playoffs.
Toronto’s last three early eliminations gave him a heavy blame.
