I really don't think so. I think Samsonov was questionable and they got jobbed by the refs.

 The game shouldn't be this close to be affected by a bad call or two.   It's every fricking game that they don't get calls and that isn't going to change in the postseason.  Have to find a way to win against the refs

And it is a B2B with an even shorter window because of the start time.  Still.

Agree. Nothing embarrassing about it. One of those games where the puck was bouncing and the posts were leanjng inward. Next ..

X2. That was a very very stupid thought process


It's ok only 1 game that'll be the consensus among some here. Whatever Leafs did great helping the Habs get closer to Bedard this weekend. No excuses should have been 4 points.

Going 3-2 over this 5-game stretch is hard to take, but since they just detailed TB's woes I guess I won't get too ballistic.

This one was one of the worst I've seen in a long time. This was more than a few calls. Holl got blatantly tripped and Kane scored, and like I said, Samsonov didn't play a great game. You hope Timmins plays that 2 on 1 better as well, but Moneypuck had this one for the Leafs 74%. I don't think this was an embarrassing effort at all by the team as a whole though.

Right. We could say the exact same thing about TB right now.

Really? Habs have been 7th last in the league for what seems forever and they're still 7th last.
And yes it's just 1 game. Feel free to overanalyze it like usual.

Agree on all accounts.

Tough luck game and shitty officiating. Also, Pierre Engvall is a turd. Seriously. I'd much rather Pontus Holmberg play in his place. Also, Justin Holl is horrible. I'm hoping Dubie can still bring in a dman. They're missing the Roman Polak, Zack Bogosian, Lyubushkin type. If he can swing that, I then want Holl deleted from this lineup forever. 🤞

Most of us fans can see this but Dubas and Keefe don't. Then he pairs Reilly with him who 10 years later still can't defend. Lol.

I don't know why everyone is always ragging on Engvall. He's a solid bottom 6er. I like him.

After watching the post game I retract my criticisms.  I will shift to say that Samsonov shouldn't start.  He was still feeling unwell.  No reason to play him last night.
