Stars and Black Holes: Maple Leafs Home And Home: Novembers 15 And 16


Welcome to yet another forgotten recap!  If you think there was a delay because I wanted to recap the Leafs games together, you are correct.  If you think there was a delay because I was lazy and busy, you are significantly more correct.  The Sabres did well for themselves against a team that pretty much everyone knows to be right there with them in terms of lousy possession play.  In fact, heading into Friday both teams were tied at a -10.6 even strength shot differential per sixty minutes, worst in the NHL.


  1. Steve Ott and Mark Pysyk – Both had two points in game one with Ott having a goal and an assist and Pysyk tallying two helpers.
  2. Marcus Foligno – Foligno had a goal and an assist in the series and has become one of the team’s most reliably good players.
  3. Tyler Ennis – Ennis put a combined ten shots on goal over the course of the two games and looks as effective as he ever has.

Unsung Hero:

  • None.

The Robert Wade Niedermayer Memorial Black Holes:

  1. Ville Leino – I had high hopes for Leino, a good possession player, when healthy, but so far he isn’t showing much.
  2. Drew Stafford – Do something Drew.  Do something.
  3. Henrik Tallinder – Nolan likes him and he does some good things, but he feels an awful lot like Rivet’s and Regier’s last seasons here.  Too old and the bad rapidly beginning to outweigh the good.

Unseen Goat:

  • None.
