Really sucks that Matthews couldn't bury one in the first half of the game when he was absolutely flying. Went down a level in the 3rd.

The whole team seemed to drop a level in the 3rd (late 2nd, even).

The leafs are completely ok with mediocre play and actually encourage it.

ROFL, yeah, Shanahan is totally like, "ok guys, let's go be mediocre".

They brought back Polak!!  What else can you conclude?

Kapanen, Johnsson, and Dermott were bottom-3 in ice-time tonight. Kappy played under 10 minutes. Can't imagine we'll see that next year in the playoffs.

Some of the stuff I've seen written here in the last few minutes is really quite pathetic.

If Andersen is the goalie next year Im not interested in watching.
Well goodbye. Freddie isnt the problem. We've all said it all year.. The D isn't good enough.

You can't go 9+ minutes without a shot with a 1-goal lead to start the 3rd.  That's inexcusable.

Nope. This isn't on any player in particular. This is a team failure.

Yeah.  Gardiner and Andersen definitely fell apart but the whole team just quit playing.

There's a lot of work to do over the summer.  Matthews needs to commit himself to never have a playoff series like this again.  He just didn't get it done.  Nylander too was way too late in bringing it.

Time for Shanahan, Lou whoever is in charge to make some changes. Team has had so many deficiencies all year never mind last 2 years and they haven't addressed it. Utter BS. Babcock with some idiotic lineup decisions all year. Team gets manhandled a lot because they don't have many of those type of players to come back and do the same thing. Can't build a team strictly on offensive skill and crappy defensive play. Upper brass needs to realize that. I'm sure they have a plan but no excuse not to add something after last year. What are we paying Lou for? If basically training Dubas then fine but he hasn't helped this team take a leap forward. You can say whatever you want about the regular season. It doesn't mean s**t when you get to the playoffs.

Great coaching by the genius, the guys that are actually playing well, don't play them much

Do you think Babcock will change his stripes?  There is a point you have to ask why Babcock does what he does.  Limiting the better players minutes is a legit concern.

Agreed. This is the 2nd year of the rebuild. Relax. We need to up our D. Changes up front are coming also.

Mad props to the Bruins. They know how to play and they did what it takes for every inch of their ice.

I like to think we gave them a bit of a scare. We are on the cusp of something more special than this.

This is twice now that the Leafs have been absolutely humiliated by Boston in a game 7. As much as I am trying to remain objective and dispassionate, I can't really look past that.

There's no way you can class this loss with the last one.
