Putting Gunnarsson and Kostka on the ice for the last play was certainly questionable. And why wasn't Bozak taking the draw?

Scrivens was off tonight, but that last one was on gunnar why is hestill playing?

the guy is clearly not 100% and has been playing terrible.
all we have on this team is extra d-men so why arent we using them?

The other was Holzer, but it wasn't his fault. In fact that never should of been a goal cause Scrivens batted it directly at Holzer's arm. Why can't he just cover it....

Thankfully he's our backup that's starting games only while our solid starter is injured.

Kulemin has been pretty invisible this year. He looks disinterested.

That last goal burns me... I mean, first of all, smothering the puck when you could clearly have made a play. Ben was doing it all night. He's a bad puck handler.

Then obviously the fat rebound on the GWG.

Scrivens is a poor decision maker and has suspect rebound control. I appreciate what he's done for this team with Reimer out, but the loss is on him tonight.

The skaters were creating offence, but often got a little too cute with no look and forced passes. Accuracy was also poor.

The sad part is I knew this was gonna happen. Like I could just sense a last minute collapse. I was watching the game in the last minute biting my fingers

I think Randy is going to tell him straight up never to freeze the puck like that with 25 seconds left. he had time to clear it, he could have dropped it, but he froze it and wham.


No loser point.

Someone in the GDT said it best: it was like Ottawa had our playbook and we simply couldn't adjust to it. All the set plays didn't work, we weren't skating hard enough. I don't think that we underestimated them at all - But I don't think we were outworked EITHER. We tried as hard as we could.

In other news: holy crap, the officiating (Note: I am not blaming the officiating for the loss). but it was HORRENDOUS. 4 obviously missed calls. It might not have changed/affected the outcome but those kinds of calls severly need to be made. (especially because you know if it was the other way around....).

Oh well. we had a chance, we blew it, we're fully 6th now I believe. Dust off, and face Philly.

There was nobody there, baffles me that he held on to the puck instead of playing it, then pretty much guaranteeing an overtime.

I don't get this either. Holzer and Phaneuf should've been out there. Holzer would've shoved Greening aside easily. Gunnar just let him waltz in like nothing.

What game were you watching? Knocking it in out of the air is prime position? What nonsense.

Hopefully gunnerson sees the press box. He's been really bad since coming back. Real bad.

****ing ********. Scrievens sucks, his an idiot also. Why the **** did he not make the play when nobody was around him before the face off.

Gunnerson has been ****ing brutal, sit his ass down. Bring up Gardiner. **** this ****.

Two goals that were largely a result of horrible coverage by Gunnarsson. That guy needs to stay in the press box with Liles until one or both of them fix their compete level.

One of the reasons the Leafs have been better defensively this year is guys like Holzer and Kostka who battle for pucks and clear the crease. Even Kaberle used to clear the crease better than that pathetic effort from Gunnarsson. Brutal night for him.

Hate it. Feels f'in bad man. Didn't deserve a win but earned a point and blew it. Wtf was Scrivens thinking? As good as he's been he freezes the puck way too much.

I don't care if Gunnarson is "rusty". Since he's come back it's like Wilson is coaching again every shift he's out there.

Typical Leafs. Can't even play well against a banged up AHL caliber Ottawa team. Not going to go bank to the tank wagon yet, But **** this was disgraceful.

Scrivens is not a good number 1 goalie but perhaps a solid career back up like Glen Healey

Worst way to end a game there, when we could've gotten a point. If this team could find a way to get the extra ****ing loser point every know and then, we'd be in 4th.

Really tough to not blame it all on Scrivens, but after the team battled back and played well in the third despite the sub par first and second ... Scrivens cost the Leafs a point tonight

yep, stupid, stupid, stupid... so much had to go wrong for that to happen. heartbreaking... Lets hope this point doesn't come back to haunt us. Instead of being 5 games above .500 now we're 3. This was a must game win IMO.

I could blame the refs for this; but instead, I'm going to blame how retarded we played.
