Chalk that one up to these refs CONTINUOUSLY tossing out players from the face-off circle. Cole forced to take the face-off and cover Bozak, and he looked completely lost out there, was following the puck instead of the player and lost him.
Erik Cole has been playing hockey for what...25 years ? or more ? He knows whats up.
What the **** is up with this team's inability to play consistent hockey on Saturday night against Toronto? It's been this way the past 10 ****ing years. They always start like **** against the Leafs no matter how bad Toronto is.
Losing to the laffs and booins in the same week stings.
At least we usually compete at home against Boston. They actually have a far worse record at the Bell Centre since we opened the Bell Centre than the Leafs do! Hell even in the last 5 years where Boston has emerged and the Leafs have been mediocre, Toronto still has a better win total on the road against us than the B's. I hate the Bruins but at least when we lose to them it's cause they have the superior squad. But to the playoff-deprived Leafs? We lose this and our record against them since 2005 is a mere .500. That's friggin hard to explain.
