1. Countless odd man opportunities against.
2. Dreadful defense.
3. Bad breakouts vs. the trap.
4. Turnovers at the blueline.
5. Soft on the puck.
6. Too fancy offensively. Trying to pass it in the net.
7. Barely shooting (18 shots while chasing the lead the whole game).
8. Lupul hurt.
9. Outworked by lowly ‘Lumbus for the 2nd time.
10. Poor Reimer.

No sense in picking out individuals from the pile. This was the Leafs‘ first real “blowout” of the season. How will they respond?
