Couldn’t catch the game this evening, but based on the boxscore alone it looks like tonight’s snoozer was a continuation of the trend that’s been developing since the holiday season. The Leafs lost more often than not during the first third and a bit of the campaign, but for the most part they were tireless in their efforts and grinded out some tight losses. As of the holiday season, not only are they losing more, but looking increasingly weary and uninterested in the process. Tonight, the Buds fired a mere four shots on goal in the third period when the game was still up for grabs. No matter how low the expectation bar may be this year in terms of results, that’s wholly unacceptable and hardly justifies the price of the ticket.
I’ll turn it over to you guys.
