I actually stayed up to watch that game hoping for an epic collapse by Vancouver and they did not let me down!

While no one directly blamed the Leafs for Vancouver's shoddy goaltending, one of the announcers said something along the lines of part of the reason that Schnieder collapsed was that Luongo was still there pressuring him to be starter. The excuse was that all the pressure from Luongo's prescence got to Schnieder and that contributed to his collapse. His logic was that if Vancouver could have just pawned off Luongo, Schnieder would have been fine...he was blaming Gillis for this but someone in Vancouver is bound to blame the Leafs for not offering Gillis his demanding price, lol.
