Miscues lead to loss in South Florida


The Leafs were mostly done in tonight by two poor decisions by defensemen and a few minutes of bad goaltending. Jake Gardiner's offensive zone pinch immediately following Mikhail Grabovksi's game-tying goal in the second period led to a breakaway chance for Bill Thomas. Coupled with James Reimer playing too deep in his net, Thomas scored his first goal of the season and the Leafs never completely recovered. When they did pull to within one goal in the third period, Luke Schenn decided to try and take on four Florida players at once, coughing the puck up at the Panthers blue-line for a quick counter-attack. Tomas Fleischmann buried the chance, the Panthers walked out of the rink with two points. The Leafs have now given up 10 goals in two games against Florida.
