I tried to stay up until the end of the game to pick an appropriate headline and recap the game in some way, but I couldn't do it. I'm sorry. The widespread panic about the Leafs' supposed sudden inability to score was more exhausting than the late start time. The regularity of shooting percentage regression and how that might impact the Leafs' recent games wasn't factored into the intermission analysis that I ended up muting anyway (too late, unfortunately).
What are your thoughts on the California road trip? Is the sky falling, or just the Leafs' PDO? Maybe both?

"Good one, Peter" is an incredible opening sentence.
