There are nights where you play better than the other team and still lose, this was one of them. I really hope we're not in the midst of another patented Leaf second half cliff dive. But they deserved better tonight, at least.
This game was absolutely heartbreaking. I feel so ****ing depressed right now. We outplayed the Penguins by a mile the entire game, and they get a few lucky breaks in the last 10 minutes and capitalize.
I don't know if we can make the playoffs anymore. This is one of those losses that break a team.
Not watching the game but let me see if I have this correct:
Leafs play a solid defensive game for the first 40 mins, they bring their physical game and legs. Then the 3rd comes, they stop skating and putting in an effort, the other team comes back with 2 quick strikes to put the game away, how am I doing so far?
We deserved better fate than that. That's the sign of good team like Pens and having a game breaker like Crosby who you can count on coming through. We don't have a player we can count on like that to get us that goal.
