James Reimer, good. Leafs offense, bad. The Leafs are simply incapable of beating a defensively orientated system team like Tampa Bay or Boston. I don't know if it's a personnel or a coaching matter, but it's got to change if the Leafs want to win more than 30 games in a season.

Leafs Fold After Digging Early Hole Against Lightning - James Mirtle

The visitors came out flatter than a pancake, and the results were right there up on the scoreboard after 13 minutes: Tampa Bay Lightning 2, Toronto Maple Leafs 0.

It never got any better from there.

he Lightning sent the Leafs off to a six-day all-star break on yet another a losing note, riding that early two-goal lead to a 2-0 win against a Toronto team that looked fatigued and listless from the drop of the opening face-off.

So I'm guessing no reporter confused him in the after game presser by suggesting the fans were upset with a hard working losing effort then. More links after the jump.

Some SI writer doesn't like the Lightning's 1-3-1 system and somehow comes to the conclusion that it's the referee's fault. Ok then.
