Down 2 and they spent way too much time trying to be cute on the PP

They have been like that all season. So predictable and Rielly still refuse to shoot.

It was the #1 PP in the league.

It was the 15h highest PP% of all time and 4th in the last 30 years.

I was going to say that other than the McDavid Oilers it was the most successful PP any team has had in three years but yours is better.

But yeah. Bad all year.
Leafs lose a game and you'd think they were picking first overall in the draft.

You should really check facts before trolling..


Guilt Trip

Leafs have scored 8 against Vas in 2 games...Matthews and Marner are producing. Now hopefully we can get some goals from the other lines.

PP% being#1 means nothing when they can't score when it counts, especially in the PO.

You said it was like that all year, it wasn't

It's okay to admit you were wrong.

I watched every Leafs game this season.  Leafs have the 5 players standing at the same position passing the puck the same way every time. They are #1 because they have the best shooter in the entire league.

We can win this series, we just have to stay outta the box. Tampa powerplay is clicking. Ours, not so much.

Not at all —the script remains the same, is I think what is being expressed, which is a completely justified view until they show differently.

Okay, nice for the leafs to finally get a pp but I'm sorry, the refs have been terrible.

I've said this before but I'll say it again for those new or didn't see it. I live out west and one of my golfing buddies doesn't watch hockey anymore. His take since Bettman became full fledged commissioner for a full season no Canadian team has won Lord Stanley. Coincidence?

No. Five different Canadian teams have made it to the finals since Montreal last won the cup. I think it is just that the league has started to catch up.

No I said no Canadian team has won the cup.

I like it when the refs are clearly thinking, hey we get paid more if the series goes the distance.

The Leafs PP this year was 7.2% more effective than St. Louis' was the year Brett Hull scored 86 goals. It was 3.1% more effective than Pittsburgh had the year Mario Lemieux scored 85.  It was 1.7% more effective than the Oilers the year Gretzky scored the most goals anyone has ever scored during a NHL season. It was more effective than any PP the Caps have had during Ovechkin's entire career.
I wish to hell I'd never said "Winning isn't everything it's the only thing". What I believe is, if you go out on a football field, or any endeavour in life, and you leave every fibre of what you have on the field, then you've won.
