From the Branches: Sure the shootout is silly, but the real thing to hate is blown leads.

New, comments

Being 1-8 at the shootout is nowhere near as bad as giving up a 2 goal lead.

NHL: Toronto Maple Leafs at Los Angeles Kings Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Yeah yeah same old story. Shoot outs are bad. It’s a skills competition. It’s not a proper way to end a game. Bloo bloo bloo bloo bloo bloo bloo.

I agree with all of that. I think that the Kings should have beaten the Maple Leafs in regulation, so we could not be distracted by the shootout loss.

So the Maple Leafs wouldn't have gotten a point. Maybe then the team would have gotten the point. STOP BLOWING LEADS.

Holy hell, get over the shootout and get mad at the fact that the Leafs were winning, then they lost.

Two goals in the first two minutes of the third period is way worse than losing the shootout 1-0. That’s the focus. If we’re going to be mad. be mad at that.

Links below, I have to figure out a way to get excited about writing a preview about the Ducks. They’re orange? They’re name is stupid? I don’t know.
