The Leafs can blame a lot of things out of their control today: the sub 20 hour turnaround from beating Washington in Toronto last night to playing a matinee game in Carolina, the poor reffing, bad bounces, the list goes on.
The thing is each of the goals against was ugly. The first goal is one Ben Scrivens would likely want back, the second goal was kicked top shelf by Luke Schenn after Chad LaRose whiffed and the third goal came after Scrivens stoned Eric Staal but no one backchecked leaving the unstable on his skates Jeff Skinner to pot the rebound.
The bright spot? When life hands him lemons Phil Kessel puts them just under the crossbar. Shit happens, on to the next one Leafs fans.
