Maple Leafs 2, Penguins 5


I've been recapping Leaf games on this site for six years.  Here's the first one from October 11, 2003.  You'll see that prior to this year I kept track of our current record, past three games and team scoring leaders in each recap.  This season, I think I can do without the constant reminder of our placement in the Eastern Conference.

It's looking bad.  Much like the game against Washington last week, we were out-classed and looked lost.  I haven't seen a team look that disorganized since I suited up for the CN Towers in the Swansea Hockey Association back in the mid-80s.  I watch, hoping for sparks of hope and signs of what I witnessed in the pre-season to resurface, but it's not happening.  This is a bad hockey club and this is going to be a long season.

Don Cherry spoke of Joey MacDonald as a guy who will turn this team around.  I'm not sure what Don is smoking, but I'll try some.  I'll try anything.  Joey Mac can have a start and I'll just sit back and hope the team in front of him plays like an NHL team.  That would be a good start.
