Game Review: Game #81, Panthers 4 vs. Leafs 2

912
SUNRISE, FL - APRIL 10: Goaltender Drew MacIntyre #35 lets a goal slip through by Brandon Pirri #73 (not pictured) of the Florida Panthers while teammate Jimmy Hayes look on at the BB&T Center on April 10, 2014 in Sunrise, Florida. (Photo by Eliot J. Schechter/NHLI via Getty Images)

About that pre-game talk of pride and putting in a good effort for Drew MacIntyre in his first ever start…


He’s not mad at himself, I don’t think.

Worst yet, earlier in the period Nick Bjugstad trucked MacIntyre (wasn’t helped into the crease at all) and the Leafs stood around twiddling their thumbs.

Outchanced 26-12 (by Leafs TV’s count) against the Florida Panthers. 37 shots against.

Said Randy: “I thought there would’ve been a little more compassion for the goalie in our net… If that’s all we have, we shouldn’t be thinking too much of ourselves.”

Go back to the Marlies and win a Calder Cup, Uncle Drew. You didn’t deserve this in your first ever NHL start.

    Sad days

  • The_Polish_Cannon

    im disgusted with this team

  • http://i.imgur.com/MyKj5C3.gif ingy56

    Still want to just “tinker” with this lineup? Especially the core?

  • MollySweats

    Glad we lost for the sake of draft positioning a this point…but that was a truly sad and pathetic effort…sooo…anyone else want Jake Virtanen in the draft?.

  • The_Polish_Cannon

    ingy56  I was originally saying tinker but now I’m on the side of massive overhaul. I’m at the point where I wouldn’t even be upset if they traded kessel, and I own two of his jerseys.

  • Jay31

    MollySweats  I like him, Ritchie, Ehlers in our range

    The_Polish_Cannon ingy56  I have to agree, I’m no fan of Carlyle but I am not happy how the core of this team has checked out on two coaches now. Time to rattle the chains of a few of these fat cats.

  • Black_Hawk

    I want someone in this draft that will score 200 points  a season………not too much to ask

    In less than a month, the https://twitter.com/search?q=%23leafs&src=hash have dropped from ninth overall in the NHL to 22nd. That’s tough to do.
