Maple Leafs 1, Lightning 2

leafsIt was Phil Kessel night in Toronto, and he didn't disappoint. He didn't score either, unfortunately, but he did record a career-high 10 shots on net. He was everywhere, showing a nose for the net no other Leaf possesses.

The script called for Kessel to score the winner in overtime, but he hit the crossbar instead. At least he survived the hit from Mattias Ohlund.

The glass half empty guy sez: 13 games in, we only have one win. That's disgraceful.

The glass half full guy sez: The loss-less streak has hit four. With The Monster playing great and Kessel firing on all cylinders, good things are right around the corner.

Hey, TM - I bet you have stats guys who have info on other teams who have had dismal starts like this but have have ended their seasons on successful notes. Any ideas?

They actually played well. They just can't seem to score.

Sens Rule

I love watching them lose. Great job losing to a non playoff team.

Toronto Mike Verified as the defacto Toronto Mike

Hey, Oliver - I don't believe there's ever been a championship team that had a start quite like this.

I know it hasn't happened in hockey, nor basketball... and I don't think it's happened in baseball, and it can't happen in football.

We'll be the first!

glass half full: 1/8 in power plays, and half as many penalties as TB. Like they say in NASCAR--"if you ain't cheatin', you ain't tryin'"

C'mon Leafs! Let's see some more hooking and tripping
