I like how no one is pointing out all the turnovers in their own zone and poor defensive play that went on during the first two periods. In the third everyone (including Leighton) tightened up, but the first two periods were pretty ugly defensively. Against Vancouver everyone was harshing on the D because the Flyers let in so many goals, not the goalie. Here the D plays horrible and the Kings get 35+ shots and Leighton still gets the win and yet it is still all Leighton sucks blah blah blah. I know he didn't play great out there last night, but it was his first NHL game in 6 months against a good, high scoring ream, and Leighton picked up the W. What would you have liked to have happened?
Really? Did you even watch the game?
