Point Streak Ends - Games Played Streak Continues

Brett Lebda playing "defense"

Well the Leafs finally lost a game in regulation last night with a lackadaisical effort against an understaffed Rangers team. Even so, the Leafs gave up a season high 32 shots on net after averaging only 23 the previous 5 games. Equally troubling, the Leafs went 0 for 5 on the powerplay dropping their short-season average to 14.3%; only 0.3% higher than it was for all of last season when it was ranked dead last. There are a lot of questions surrounding this team now and the biggest one of all is whether or not the 4-0 start was merely a flash in the pan and not a good indication of the actual talent assembled on the ice.

Only time and the links below will tell.
