Maple Leafs 4, Canadiens 5
Two games played, two third period leads blown. This is a frightening trend. Last night, defensemen Aki Berg and Wade Belak were on the ice for the tying and winning goals and both finished the game -3. Conversely, Tomas Kaberle and Bryan McCabe finished the game +2. Methinks our thin and weak blue line shall be our demise.
Losing back to back games to the hated Sens and Habs hurts, but at least the games have been entertaining. Last night's affair had nine goals in the final two periods with lots of lead changes and exciting action. Eric Lindros once again looked solid, which is a good sign, and Alexander Steen scored his first career goal.
Unfortunately, with Berg and Belak getting fourteen minutes a game manning the blue line, we're in store for a few more of these frustrating suckers before the season ends.
