Couple of things--Leafs lost Carl Gunnarsson in the first period after Carl Hagelin hit him in the corner. Gunnarsson is probably their most reliable defenseman in their own end. They played 5 D the rest of the night.

Nash started off fine last night but he got popped in the head by Cody Franson in the first period and after that he didn't play with the same enthusiasm. I think the concussion issues have been ongoing in his mind since he's been back. He's been very leery of going into combat areas and he's not hitting anyone--5 total hits this year. He's avoiding contact as much as possible. It almost seems like he can't wait for this season to be over and done but there's the Olympics right around the corner and he wants to play for Canada. That might be his playoffs/chance at a championship.
