I don't know if this has been posted yet or not, but that was the 4th game in 6 nights, with no two games in the same city. And most of the Leafs have not played in 10 months (with a ridiculously short training camp). I expect their conditioning to improve as the short season progresses.
Also Carlyle mentioned that out of the Leafs 9 back to back games, the opponent for game two is sitting rested in Toronto waiting for the Leafs to come back for the game 7 times. Who makes these schedules?
I won't bemoan their lack of conditioning just yet. In a couple of games they have looked okay if not good. And if you watch the game on the opponent's feed - the announcers are always commenting on the Leaf's speed.
