What an awful loss.
The blame on that goes to Carlyle. Why oh why didn't he call a timeout, set a play, and get his best faceoff guy out there???
I hated Ron Wilson but he would have taken a timeout there no question. Complete bonehead move by Carlyle and he's a guy that should know much better. We could have had two points easily. In a short season like this it's a huge loss.

Because a goaltending goof up directly cost us a point?

The Sens with their best top players injured are still WAY BETTER than our Leafs.

The Leafs should be made to walk back to Toronto carrying their equipment ffs!
The Sens didn't score any pretty goals.

The Leafs were right there...if not for a bad decision by Scrivens.

We played terrible and could have gotten a point out of it.

Sens first goal: Tipped.
Second goal: Scrivens bad rebound + rushing to the net, went off Holzer.
Third goal: Scrivens terrible rebound, Gunnarsson didn't box out Greening, he saw the puck, whacked it, and in.

That's on Grabo to me, he lost the draw clean to a 19 year old. Had he at least tied him up a bit that point shot doesn't happen.

Scrivens also ****ed up on the rebound but Gunnar and Grabo are to blame.

Everyone saying Scrivens is a bad puck handler and should have passed that puck.

If he's bad at puck handling the safe move is to hold the puck like he did.

I don't have a problem with him holding the puck there.

His rebound control needs to improve though, cost the team 2 goals tonight.

Sloppy game all night. Way too many giveaways, it reminds me of the Wilson era

Our D was having trouble moving up the puck all game. Seems like a total different system that Carlyle implemented tonight

Freezing the puck with no pressure was a poor decision. That's one of the little things that separates an NHL goalie and an ahl goalie
It cost us at least a point

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.
Randy is just as guilty this game by outsmarting himself. He should have used Bozak or Steckel for the face-off -- two far superior face-off men than Grabovski.

He didn't have to pass it, he could literally just drop it in front of him and he'd have two guys there to pick it up.

Scriven's suspect rebound control bites us on the rear twice...and Gunnarson has made it abundantly clear that he is not 100% - why Liles should be sitting in favor of him is beyond me.

We had no business wining that game. We were terrible. Sens played a good game

Kulemin: everyone is love with this third liner. I don't understand why Grabo has to be stuck with him

I still can't believe you guys got JVR for Schenn in a straight-up deal... . Burke's parting gift, I suppose...
JVR needed to show up THIS game and didn't... Same with Kessel. Two complete no shows!

At the end, yes. But the leafs should have put this away against an AHL team. No excuses for the lack of offensive production. Also, Carlyle chose the wrong players to put on the ice at the end there. So focusing solely on Scrivens is unfair. I admit he was bad though. We need JR back!

The positive to take away from this is the fact that despite playing like crap, the Leafs still kept the game close.

It would have felt much worse if the game was lost by 2, 3, or even 4 goals.

your point ? they are "injury riddled" and have tons of AHL Players. They didn't even have superstar Anderson. Plus I didn't say they couldn't beat them (which we still couldn't) I said we can't even play well against them. which we didn't just a disgraceful game.

I really like Zibby though. He's a stud

This was terrible.

I feel crushed, sick even, what a terrible way to lose a hockey game. Scrivens rebound control(or lack there of) costed us 2 points tonight.

It'll be interesting to see how the team responds after this heartbreaker.

Why? There was no icing, I don't believe that group was on the ice all that long. How come Grabo never took Greening to the net?

Blame the coach but it is not his fault they couldn't complete a pass all night, showed little to no passion and his goalie couldn't even hang onto the puck. Scrivens is looking at the ref too much-just make a play. If anything he should have moved that puck because he had numbers and we wouldn't even talk about this one. 2nd and 3rd goals are all Scrivens, he didn't play well and makes you wonder if he can really be a back up NHL goalie.

As upset I am with this loss. I am kinda glad it ended the way it did. Now 2 options.

1. Team wakes up realizing we lost to AHL club and starts tearing the league

or

2. We are completely demoralized (kinda like the fall we had last season when gustavson scored on the goal that was going wide) and we absolutely derail again and get a top 5 pick.

For what its worth, Senaturds wanted it more had more hustle to their game while the leafs were skating like a walk in a park. Carlyle was out coached by Paul tonight

Scrivens had 3 Leafs to drop the puck to and chose to freeze it.
