We on the leaf board are taking up a contribution to send a thank you check to Eddie's chiropractor. That's the difference in this game.

The leafs were certainly better in the second and I continue to be surprised at how often the Senators, normally much more disciplined in Toronto, are taking so many penalties.

The playoffs are tough on this old man's heart

They better tie it up on this PP, I don't think they'll get another chance. A fresh sheet of ice is all made up for them. Doesn't get much better than this.

Haven't seen much of Spezza...when he isn't giving away the puck. Unfortunately, he's not the only one. They have to stop throwing it away in their own zone.
They also need to start taking the body more. That's how a few of their best chances were created. They especially need to start pounding Leetch and McCabe.

Especially with Leetch in the box.

Todd White missed an empty net and now it's a two goal lead for the Leafs. This guy is awful.

0 goals in 2 games is brutal. It's like ******* Brodeur last year all over again. We're creating chances but we just can't cash them in.

What's the point of putting Spezza in if he only plays about 8 minutes? This is rediculous.

I expect to see Leschyschyn for Volchenkov next game. Maybe even Pothier as he's a wuss along the boards.

We just need to score first in one of these games. If we get the first goal, the Leafs have to play a more offensive style. I don't think i can take this much longer.

I have not come to gloat but to praise your effort. With the exception of the goaltender (a mighty important exception that is) you have not been outplayed at all but you're not going to win many games when you're shut out.

I expect another great effort by the Senators game four because they and I and you all understand that if the Toronto Maple Leafs win game four there will not be a game six.

It's sad to say after all this time but, Spezza is a boy in a mens league. JM was right all along. At least Vermette is fast and will at least try to check a player. Spezza strays away from all contact. He doesn't fit our game as much as Vermette does, and right now we're playing the Leafs game instead of our game.

We do everything right...we play a flawless game...We hit with intensity...we play with determination and yet we lose ...I'm telling you, if we don't beat the leafs this season, it just wasn't meant to be.

Ottawa clearly deserved this game.

Wishful thinking, but I can almost guarantee he won't play with Hossa. JM should bring back the Fisher - Smolinski - Hossa line!

Tonight we had a ridiculous amount of shots from the point go through. We need more bodies in front and get some deflections. We shored up our faceoff's tonight which is a good sign but we still need more.

Hockey is a team sport and Ottawa was the better team. The game's MVP was Belfour though and he played outstanding.

I'm with ya man.
Toronto has been embarrassed this whole series. They've had maybe one good 10 minute stretch in each game. But otherwise outplayed for 90% of the series. They should be down 3-0 right now. Except for Belfour, they look like a bunch of AHL'ers.

As a Canadian, it makes me sad to think that Toronto may fluke their way through this series. Montreal may lose. Then it's down to Toronto and Cal/Van in the 2nd round. The sad part is that the Leafs look like a team who should get swept right now.
Hopefully Calgary or Vancouver will be able to make it to the 3rd round.

Uhhh...the score is what's used to determine the winner, and thus the better team. Belfour is part of the team, he made them win, and he made them the better team.

The better team didn't win tonight, and the Sens played almost perfect hockey. Belfour was just above us and I can't be mad, I'm just frustrated.

I'm kind of out of ideas. Just keep going I guess. We're winning in every way except goals. It's not the physical play, it's not the speed, it's not the lack of discipline, it's just scoring. Maybe we should sign Tonya Harding to a contract and do her business to Belfour's back the way she did to Nancy Kerrigan's knee.

I don't know what to say, we'll see.

No denying he has played great thus far...But the sens were peppering shots all night long but couldn't buy a goal.A little more luck and this game goes into overtime.

It is not only because of Belfour that the leafs emerged victorious against the Sens. Leafs have skill, grit, depth, determination and heart.

Belfour 2 - Sens 1

We have to start going to the net and agitating/banging this guy. If we don't get him off his game we are done in 5. We are getting lots of shots but we need more traffic and more guys going to the net (I don't know how many times Hossa put it on net and there was a big juicy rebound ripe for the picking but nobody was there to put it home).

No one said anything about "the winner". We were talking about who played better tonight, and that was Ottawa. You can deny it if you want, but then I'd have to argue that you must've not watched the game.

Two parts of your post are right....Belfour is part of the Leafs and Belfour did make them win and kudos to him. He is playing outstanding. Hopefully Ottawa will break through next game.
