The Leafs tumble down the Eastern Conference standings has continued. Would pretty much consider tonight a MUST WIN for the blue and white.

Just take a look at the way this team plays night in and night out and tell me how this is a playoff team in any way shape or form?

Lets face it, the team cant hold the opposing team to under 40 shots night after night. Sucks at faceoffs, sucks at breaking out of their own zone, sucks on the PK, and sucks on the boards. The team is just shambolic.

Listening to the Devils feed for a change, they had a ton of complimentary stuff about Kessel: great skill, 20+ goals forever, fantastic trade by Toronto, improves them a ton, demeanour stuff is overstated, Olympic standard, etc. They talked a bit about Clarkson, basically said he falls down so much that he can't draw penalties anymore, heh.

Disgusting effort all around by the Leafs tonight (as per usual)! They gave up 38 shots to a team that averages the fewest shots per game, they struggled all night to make simple plays out of their own end and outside of a few players they werent using their legs tonight. Bernier, a powerplay goal and a shootout is the reason they won.... nothing to be proud of though if your a Leaf player.

Bad call on JVR, holding Rielly's stick and a trip(on Lupul i think it was)..all within a min...and then not so long after that they call us for similar.

number17
01-13-2014, 09:51 AM
It is sure obvious by now we end up with the short end of the stick on pretty much all the bad goalie calls ....

Almost as ugly as that call though, is our game tonight against ... sure, I get how we play tight after all the losses ... but man our D is HORRIFIC these days. How do we forget how to play D from last season to this season? I dunno ... but Bernier came up big again and maybe not to the extent he 'stole' the game, but he had a very big part in the 2 points tonight.

Our PP is very indecisive, we hang on to the puck for way too long looking for plays that will pass into the net, especially our D is very reluctant to shoot / 1-time the passes.

Franson continues to be horrific with his defensive coverage ... he hasn't been a healthy scratch even once this season.

2 points is 2 points, but if that's the only circumstances we actually mange to win - playing a mediocre team on the backend of a back-to-back ... then we're most likely not gonna get too many wins. Needed SO to win it too (granted, the ref was a big reason it went to OT)

Yeah, I don't see how they can call that. Or how that doesn't get overruled in a ref huddle on the ice. What a joke.

Should've been a regulation win, and that goal might've changed things entirely by putting momentum in our favor. Instead it gave NJ a second chance and we had to battle that much harder.

Nothing is coming easy this year. And I still can't stand seeing Bad Grandpa behind our bench anymore.
