That Gunnarsson - Kostka pairing is no good.

Gunnarsson is clearly not 100%, he doesn't have the mobility or the speed, so why is he being played? Is a slower, injured Gunnarsson really better than Liles? And why has Komisarek not even sniffing the lineup? He played well to start the season...

Scrivens is easily the worst puckhandling goalie in the league, I dare you to prove me wrong. He gifted two points tonight, I can't wait for Reims to get back in the crease.

No Lupul, Frattin or Gardiner? You dont think thats hurting our offense?

2 shoot-out wins, and then lucky goals against us. Point being 3 of their wins in the streak could have easily been 3 losses. They are riding the energy of their new guys right now, new players excited to be in the league. High compete, really want to show they can hold their own in the big league rubs off on the whole room. Once that wears down they will probably come down to earth, and their injuries will really start to show.

I really like Zibby though. He's a stud
You saying typical Leafs can't beat an AHL team: My point is that it's not like we are the only team to ****ing lose to them. They've been winning without Spezza/Karlsson and now Anderson

I'm not sure this is the case. They played good defence on them, shut down the middle. If anything it is up to others to step up. No one was going to the net, only Kadri was trying to create something out there. PP didn't look all that great. Ice was horrible and puck was bouncing all over the place. There were no tape to tape passes out there.

Honestly wtf is up with Kessel. I love him and what not and I'm really liking how he's really setting people up out there. But come on this is a 40 goal scorer. freaking Score for petes sakes. 3 goals is just horrible for a guy like Kessel.

Agreed, hopefully Kulemin and Mac are both gone by the end of the season.

I know. (I had to pull some bread out of the oven).

You CALL a time out. you get your best faceoff guy out there. and your second because you KNOW he'll get waved out in this game.

It was like he had brain fart too.

but whatever. We would have been 4th, but we're 6th. Sometimes I think we need games like this to wake us up, and get things working again.

Probably the only good thing about the loss: We don't have to hear the Sens fans whine about their injured players.

I had a feeling the Senators would score when Scrivens froze the puck with 20 odd seconds to go.

Hope the win against the Habs wasn't the high water mark because they haven't really played with that intensity since.

It'll be interesting to see how the team responds after this heartbreaker.
Me too, now I have to live with Sens fans bugging me all week and beyond.

There are only two teams I need the Leafs to beat and that's the Sens and the Habs. Keeps their fans mouths somewhat shut. Damn it!!!!!!

Scrivens bobbled two pucks that ended up in the net.

We played an alright game, but **** happens. Heck, right before that, Kostka was all alone in the slot and missed the net. If that goes in, or even hits the goalie, the sens don't go the other way and score.

However, I am impressed with this Sens team. Down their #1 D, #1 C #1 G and #1 RW and they are still on a 4 game win streak.

Hopefully Reimer is ready for Monday.

He doesn't get paid $3.25m a year for defensive awareness, he gets paid to be a 200 foot player, Kuli's been clueless with the puck for the past two years...I want him gone ASAP.

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.
Because with a defensive zone face off you put your best face off men on the ice. Grabbo is not out best face off man. Pretty simple

But we must play in our end the last couple of minutes of all periods. It's a Leafs tradition

No it wouldn't, to lose a game with 24 sec left, and not even earn a point is far worse. Everyone expected at least a point -- it's the expectation that leads to the bigger disappointment. This one stung.

at least 2 of those wins were luck wins. plus they Had Anderson one of the best goalies in the League this season. But now ? They are bare to the bone with AHL talent. Just because other teams can't beat them doesn't mean the leafs shouldn't too.

Anyway I know you win some and lose some It's just we didn't even play well against them.
