Frustrating game.  Shesterkin bested Campbell after the first.

And the first really not-so-good game from the 37/38 pairing.

MLSE should see if games could be 30 minutes long.

No getting around that this was a clunker but on the other side nobody should look at that defense and be like "Oh yeah, this is a team that can just shut down other good offensive teams".

Which defense?

I've actually liked Galley's commentary these past few games but yes, his comment that "this needs to be a 4-2 win" after the Leafs blew the lead was really simplistic.

Not sure what you can sign Giordano for down the road but I would love to see him come home in his last few years. Not the player he once was but ship Holl or Dermott to Seattle to help our blue line.
I hope people will stop ripping Muzzin after watching this..the kids have done a decent job but they sure miss him tonight.

Ehhhhhh.  I’d love to have healthy Muzzin back but he’s been responsible for a lot of bad goals like tonight this year.

If there is one person I’d like to single out tonight it’s Dermott.  Every time the defense gets depleted he has failed to step up and provide anything to push him ahead.  I’m ready to move on from him.

Dermott was worse lol.
And Shesterkin has been better all year.

Turning point was that 2nd goal. I'm not trying to dump on Jack but he needs to get it back. He's not been good since the shutdown.

100% agree with you. Ship him and Holl out for an upgrade. The 2 Swedes will be fine down the road. Dermott has had his chance and Holl I have no idea what Dubas sees in him.

They definitely need to pick up some defensemen at the deadline. They don't even really need great defensemen, just serviceable guys in the Bogosian(maybe slightly better) vein.

It was a redirection, not a kick. What a joke.
I think looking at it he does a kick motion after its off his skate.
His skate moves forward slightly. I've seen that play called a goal many times before.

I actually agree with Friedman. Let the kids play and learn. I'm not disappointed in what happen tonight with them. It's a good lesson for them.

I think that's a no brainer for the Leafs and many other teams. Lots of season to go..2 months before deadline.

Yes.  Take their lumps against a good team on the road in January and hopefully they'll be little bit better come April.

The defensive lapses haven't been good in the last week but it's hard to win games when nearly every mistake ends up in your own net.

On this road trip Campbell has an .865 SV% in four games.  Goalies are allowed to slump but for all the doom and gloom of the last few games its' really just hard to win games when your goalie can't stop the puck.
