Noteworthy:
-Phil Kessel’s pointless streak was extended to five games. Kessel missed a chance to win the game at the end of regulation when he received a cross-ice pass only to fire the puck wide. “I gotta bury those,” reflected Kessel after the game.
-The Leafs had 49 shots on goal, three more than they had against the Habs in a 4-3 OT loss on opening night October 1,
-Toronto went 0-for-4 on the power-play and is now just 1-for-19 with the man advantage in the past seven games.
