Maple Leafs’ two elite lines continue high-octane play vs. Stars

DALLAS – When contemplating how his Dallas Stars might attempt to derail the Toronto Maple Leafs runaway-train offence before Tuesday’s game, head coach Jim Montgomery had a simple message: "Hope and pray."
Even that wasn’t enough.
Auston Matthews and John Tavares each scored two more goals while Mitch Marner added a goal and three assists as the high-octane Leafs spanked Dallas 7-4.
Consider that the Stars had allowed just one goal over their first two games. Toronto clinically put three pucks behind Ben Bishop during a four-minute stretch in the second period – with Matthews and Tavares sandwiching power-play goals around one from Ron Hainsey – and ended up seeing the Dallas goalie match his most goals allowed in a 326-game NHL career.
"Their transition to offence is incredible," said Montgomery.
Dallas also had a strong game from its offensive stars – with top liners Alex Radulov, Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn each scoring along with top defenceman John Klingberg.

老愚:凛冬将至
Thursday November 15, 2018

阴雨天,最宜林中漫步。 周围少了嘈杂的人类,自然的声响才会丝丝入耳。 黄叶脱离栖息的枝干时,会发出柔和的微音,我理解为它对母体的致意。它们随风飘散,不时轻触一下游人的身体。无意的坠落,却会在人心里激起涟漪,你感觉落叶仿佛在传递自然的好意。当一枚黄叶拂面而去时,你隐隐产生了些微的感动。 这样的季节,文人以为万物凋零,顿生伤感之情,吟诗作词,无不大放悲声。在我看来,此乃造物主删繁就简,时令犹如一位严苛的园丁,在逐一剥去树木身上的无用之物;它们暗怀感激,任由那只看不见的手作法除冗。 枝叶,果实,对一棵树而言,都是多馀的东西。在秋天供自己宣示生命力之后,就不再值得留恋。 人生亦如此,深秋季节,功名利禄骤然变成了累赘,越早剔除越有益于心灵安宁。你若不遵从生命的铁律,自觉刈除身上的附着物,那只看不见的手就会挥舞巨斧,朝你最不舍的生命要害处砍去。 ………… 黄叶纷飞,太阳早早下山了。 “日暮途穷”这个熟语不由自主地浮上心头。 对一个中年人而言,困窘之极时便有无路可走的喟叹。 困窘,无关财富、官运、欲望,只是指精神状态的不舒展。诸位应该明白,我说的是心灵自由。在一个钳制思想的环境里,思考、表达无不受到限制,这会深刻地影响到人的内分泌。郁积于心的东西,侵蚀人的机体,造成精神面貌的畸变。 如果说一头猪有自由,不过是牠有在猪圈里打转的自由,在被限定的区域里,牠可以跑上无数圈,但那不是自由的奔跑。 猪圈对猪的塑造是致命的,牠以为生下来就只能在那么大的地方活动,墙外的世界与自己无关;牠亦不会羡慕天上的鸟儿,因为它们没有主人。 禁锢的心灵难以理解正常人对自由的向往,也无从感知自由心灵的境界。 我的心灵固然是自由的,但我知道我是不自由的。 ………… 凛字有三义,曰寒冷,曰严厉,曰畏惧。 凛冬一词则兼而有之,既冷,又厉,且叫人肝儿颤。 凛冬将至往往给人一种不寒而栗的预期,四个汉字让你先在心里折服了,待它呼啸而至时,已经看到了匍匐在地的软蛋。 冬天来了,冬天来了,冬天真的来了。 你有多害怕,冬天就有多冷酷。 对,我想说的是,没有畏惧就没有冬天。 营造冬天的造物主,听到这句话一定暗自翻白眼:负能量老愚,你为何掀开了我的底牌? ………… 在一册猩红的党宣杂志上,我看到了一熟人的名字。 此人由影视评论起家,最终成为影视把关人,时常写些如何表现时代精神之类的八股文。三十多年未见,如今竟在纸上相遇了。我没想到一介老迈之身,还在吃力地摆弄汉字,为红太阳臆想的文化自信摇旗呐喊。 当年在某单位共事时,此人依傍敢言而有风骨的导师,紧跟八十年代开放思潮,点灯熬油炮制檄文,呼唤电影的春天。步履滞重,眼神阴鸷,脑袋微秃而大,这是他定格在我心中的映像。算起来,他也步入古稀之年了,早就卸掉了肩上政审的担子,该过几天放松的日子了,何以至死不悟,非要往窄的磨道上奔去,把绳子紧紧勒进自己的皮肉里? ………… 某名主持患癌而死,各类语重心长的鸡汤倾巢而出,它们谆谆告诫众人,在死亡面前,健康至为重要,功名利禄皆身外之物。我好奇的是,那些点头称是的人难道平日里都意识不到自己会死么?在我看来,欲壑难填的人,那里在乎心身健康,他们只愿意成为成功人士,享尽荣华富贵。至于死,那是一个此生看不见的彗星,只有生活的失败者才会轻易死掉。权力和财富让许多人丧失了理智,以为拥有了二者就可免死。 ………… 干爹敬神、和气,见人笑嘻嘻的。晚年,一条腿突然软了,卧在床上,由干娘伺候。探视那天,他拉着我的手哭道:你看我一个刚强的人,好好的竟不能走路骑自行车了! 干爹走后,干弟弟哭着对我说:咱爹一见我就问,他啥时候能好,他老想着骑自行车呢! 凛冬已至,七十多岁的老人家还以为,自己的身体一直会好好的,腿会一直那么有劲地蹬起自行车,在平坦坦的关中道上来回跑哩。 相关日志2018/08/30 — 老愚:中国官场的“9999”症结 ( 镜像链接: 亚马逊镜像 | 谷歌镜像 )2018/05/25 — 老愚:孩奴的焦虑 ( 镜像链接: 亚马逊镜像 | 谷歌镜像 )

Soi kèo Rayo Vallecano vs Barca, 2h45 ngày 04/11, La Liga

Soi kèo Rayo Vallecano vs Barca, 2h45 ngày 04/11, La Liga Rate this post Tin soi kèo bóng đá từ nhà cái cá cược uy tín 188BET –  Chuyên gia soi kèo Rayo Vallecano vs Barca nhận định, đội bóng xứ Catalan đang trong trạng thái rất hưng phấn. Liệu một đội bóng đứng áp

But the Leafs are rolling out two elite lines. Zach Hyman has proven to be a great fit with Tavares and Marner, winning puck battles before setting each player up for a goal at 5-on-5. Kasperi Kapanen had a second strong game since moving alongside Matthews, finding his centreman at the top of the right circle during the first period.
When you give the Leafs a power play? Good luck. They went 2-for-3 and only needed 3:04 with the man advantage to accomplish it.
"Up front, at the centre position, they’re very deep," said Seguin. "Everyone knows that. You guys make sure that everyone knows that. They’re a heck of a hockey team and they’ve been winning a lot of games with big scores."
Toronto leads the NHL with 19 goals scored, but also with 17 allowed against. Playing with better structure and protecting their own zone will continue to be a point of emphasis.
But after watching them score 14 times in a three-day stretch you couldn’t help but think they’ll be able to outscore their problems.
Morgan Rielly had four assists on Tuesday to boost his point total to 10. Matthews has scored in each of the Leafs four games and has a league-leading seven on the season.
Remember this is a team still playing without William Nylander because of a contract impasse.
