I dunno why the schedule makers have the leafs play back to backs against a rested Habs team every game

Not really. They got a point on a back to back, we'll take it. Habs got there goals on Leaf shots. Campbell is good.

Too bad.  But what a game.

What do you mean what a game?  16-1 in the 3rd period.  That was embarrassing.

I thought it was a great game entertainment wise

I wonder if the illness thatís keeping Nylander out of the lineup is effecting more of the roster. Would explain some of why they look so sluggish in the 3rd periods of late.

Yes, I don't agree with Strangelove here.  Fatigue is fatigue no matter when it happens in the season.  They plainly looked out of gas the whole third period.  Not surprising since the whole game the first 2 was up and down.

There's no reason for any team to play back to back games.

1st two periods were, both teams competed.  After the 2nd intermission only one team showed up.  Thatís not entertaining.

This is insane.  They are professional athletes.  They canít play two nights in a row?

Def out of gas. Looks like we have a back up tho! Leafs took 3 out of 4 on back to back nights. All good.

It's just become so routine to expect a bad 2-1 or breakaway against in OT while we have to actually work to gain the zone most of the time. I don't think it's much to ask for them to make a responsible play if you don't have a good avenue to score or the play is high risk. Barrie has terrible decision making instincts.

It sucks when they lose to the Habs.  Especially when that loss gets the Habs back in the playoff race.

That was one of their best team defense games all year.  I'm not unhappy with the result at all.

Again, it's too early to really say this but I hope Keefe will be willing to put Sandin and Liljegren out late with a lead over Barrie.

Is your point that every team playing a back to back should be outshot 16-1 in the 3rd?  This wasnít about being tired.  It was about being scared.

Just watched that goal again. Barrie also decided to stop skating at the end and let Kovy have the puck. A lot of this just comes down to effort. How badly do you want to get back in the play? Were they just expecting a clean breakaway goal?

It's not just the back to back, but 4 games in 6 nights I think was the real reason that they looked a little sluggish all night.
