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.
