Maple Leafs 0, Thrashers 5
We had outscored the Thrashers 37-9 in our eight straight wins before last night's debacle. In three straight losses we've scored a whopping two goals. We've lost six of our past eight.
I know you're itching to press this panic button, but don't do it. It's premature overreaction. We're in a slump, no doubt, but I'd rather go through this now than revisit that total collapse we experienced last year when McCabe went down.
The fact is, Montreal is clearly second in the division, Ottawa has survived their slump and is making a charge and even Boston could overtake us once they make up their games in hand. If all the teams with games in hand actually win them, we could be looking at 12th in the conference. On the other hand, you might want to click that button after all. No wait... let's see if we bounce back against the Habs Saturday night first.
