Maple Leafs 2, Hurricanes 3

LeafsIt would be easy to pin this blown opportunity on Alexei Ponikarovsky. With the Leafs up by a goal with less than a minute to play, the puck was on Poni's stick and all he had to do was shoot it toward an empty Carolina net. Instead, Cory Stillman picked his pocket and the rest is history. We couldn't hold on with a 2-0 lead and only 90 seconds to play in the third.

It would be easy to blame Ponikarovsky, who was also in the box when the winning goal was scored, but it's more likely my fault. I never should have wrote this. I should know better.

Thanks for blowing another leaf lead. I demand you be fired! By who i'm not sure but putting pony on the ice the was the sillest thing you've done all season and you should pay for it. :(

I'm just now at the point where I can talk about this.

I don't think I've been more angry about a loss since Roenick blew that shot past Eddie the Eagle back in the '04 playoffs.

Yeah, it's hard to believe the Leafs haven't even PLAYED in a Cup final since '67.

Damn you, Kerry Fraser.
