Nazem Kadri is a new man

Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock admitted that his former Detroit teams had a different take on a young, rough hewn Nazem Kadri than the NHL has today.

just a different person, Babcock said. team) played against Toronto a lot and nothing against Naz, but we wouldn concern ourselves too much with him. Naz is now a guy who can play really well without the puck and he nasty. That helps him be the player he is and he scored some goals (32) this year as well.

Having worked to turn his game around and get another chance in the playoffs in the prime of his career, Kadri does imitation clover bracelet van cleef and arpels not want to let this spring chance go by, even if the Leafs aren favoured to get far in this series. At least Game 1 was not a blowout.

fans on the outside, for sure, I think they understand we can play with (the Caps), Kadri said. don think Washington is a naive team; they smart, they well coached, they well educated. They clover bracelet van cleef and arpels replica didn take us lightly, they understood who they were playing. We not discouraged (losing Game 1), we going to keep coming.

Hit machine is not a nickname often associated with Tyler Bozak.

The Leafs centre can absorb a lot of punishment, but being the aggressor is not his style. So there was a lot of ribbing that went on at the optional practice Friday after the game stats indicated he had seven of Toronto 47 hits against one of the most teams in the league.

saw that, I almost had to do a double take, said his long time winger, James van Riemsdyk. might have doubled his hits for the whole year.

thought was a typo, opined Kadri.

But van Riemsdyk did note Game 1 was a strong effort for Bozak, who has been banged up of late and skipped some practices with body soreness as the early 30s of his career has begun.

a big part of our team and another guy who seems to thrive in these bigger games like this. So it was not a surprise to see him ready to go. He had a good game.

Bozak set up Mitch Marner opening goal.

Defenceman Matt Hunwick 26 plus minutes of ice time in Game 1 led all players, as the Leafs continue to compensate for the Nikita Zaitsev injury.

year I played a lot of minutes, Hunwick said. year, it been a bit more third pair most of the time with Roman (Polak) and it been a real good fit. Some extra minutes are there and I happy to take them.

No lineup changes are expected in Game 2 and Zaitsev, with a suspected concussion, is still not skating with the team.

Though the Leafs came close to winning Game 1, the task of coming back if they fall behind by two is daunting. Toronto record when down 0 2 in a seven game series is 4 16. The last time they came back from an 0 2 hole was when Detroit dominated Games 1 and 2 in the 1993 opening round . The playoff bound Marlies wrap up their regular season this weekend with games against St. van cleef & arpels bracelet fake John on The Rock. Brendan Leipsic came into play Friday with ten points, including five goals, in his past nine games and 49 points in 47 games this season.
