Maple Leafs 0, Flyers 4

Go Leafs Go!

6-1, 7-1, 4-1 and 4-0.  Those are the scores from the last four Maple Leafs - Flyers games.  All four games were Philadelphia victories.  The combined score of the four games is an embarrassing 21-3.  That's horrible.

Tonights game was dreadful to watch.  The offense didn't show up and the defense was pushed around the entire time.  The way we're playing lately we can forget about finishing first overall in the conference, we're not going to win the division.  Finishing behind Ottawa will ensure us no better than a fourth seed in the East and if both Philadelphia and New Jersey finish with more points, we'll be seeded fifth with a first round match-up against the lesser of the two.  If the Leafs have to face Philly or New Jersey in the first round, there will most likely be no second round for the blue and white.  Getting healthy is important but I still believe a couple of upgrades are required to reverse our fortunes.  Our defense must get tougher.  I'm sick of seeing opposing forwards out muscle our blueliners to score goals as Philadelphia did for their first two goals tonight.  Enough is enough.
