Leafs comeback falls short – again

For the second game in a row the Leafs rallied to draw even after being down against the Red Wings, only to surrender the eventual game-winner in the third period. Dan Cleary’s second goal of the game was the clincher for the visiting side before a sellout crowd at Air Canada Centre.

Jason Blake scored a pair of goals for the Leafs while Mikhail Grabovski registered his fourth goal of the pre-season. Curtis Joseph made 18 saves in net for Toronto, going the distance.

The Leafs exhibition season ends tomorrow with a home game against the Columbus Blue Jackets.
