Yeah, I'm not going to say that the rest of the team played perfect and that Leighton was 100% the reason we lost. We were outplayed and times for sure. But Leighton's performance left absolutely no room for the rest of the team to slip, and it's impossible to win four out of seven games like that. You can't expect your team to play flawless hockey for an entire series. It just doesn't work like that.

And because of that, Leighton shoulders a heavy majority of the blame. Any time your team asked to play perfect hockey in order to win, you are doomed from the start.
