Heck, those 2 lists include every single team in our division.
I hate to regurgitate the media but in order to beat these goalies the Leafs need much more physical net presence. They need to get in Millers space and screen him and get him off his game. At one point there was a Toronto rush and the winger came up the boards while the other Leaf went behind the net????????? Why go behind the net???? Why not crash the crease while the winger puts the puck on net and bang in some rebounds. Games like last night when Miller is seeing everything, you got to get a dirty goal or two by just getting in his face.
