Toronto Mike

Maple Leafs 1, Canadiens 6


Ladies and gentlemen, last night we were exposed.  We were exposed as the young, inexperienced, undisciplined team we are.  The victory over Detroit, as we suspected, was an aberration.  The egg we laid last night, as difficult as it was to watch, is more likely to become the norm this season.

Particularly disturbing last night, especially in the second period from hell, was how poorly our new defence played.  When I search for the positives on this team, I first point to Toskala and then to our new faster, younger, solidified defencemen.  Last night, they were all exposed, even the young Jedi, and I found myself missing Brad Marsh.

They'll be better days.  At least Cujo got a shutout.
