This team is full of a bunch of ******* who are too afraid to carry the puck into the opposing zone or battle along the boards
I don't see why the Leafs kept trying to chip it in on that 6 on 4. They're a fast team, trying to pass it in wouldn't be futile. I mean I don't even mind it if they dump the puck, but atleast retrieve it... They dumped it and then couldn't get it back. Didn't like those last two minutes.
But, it was a close game. Sucks that we lost but the buds kept it somewhat interesting. Onto the next one.
People can act superior and pretend this loss doesn't matter, but it does. More evidence that the Leafs can't compete against physical teams that have a good forecheck. We get dominated and can't do anything with speed if we don't have the puck.
Once again the third line is completely useless at doing anything but use icetime. I see no issue with throwing Connolly and Lombardi on waivers, doing nothing out there. Lombardi can recover his game on the damn Marlies and try again next year.
But yeah we should totally look ahead and not behind. Since at this rate we'll be right back outside of the playoffs looking up at the 8th seed....
4-3 loss in Philly, can deal with it, the effort put in at the end, 6 on 4 out hussled, out worked, out battled to every puck, unacceptable. They better get a fire lit under their ***** for sat. Mtl is on a roll and if the Leafs waltz in to ACC, tap their sticks against the boards for 45min for Mats and go through the motions this could fall apart rather quickly
