FTB: You really didn’t want to watch the game last night

New, comments

Its only one game. It’s not time to panic. Yet.

NHL: Stanley Cup Playoffs-Toronto Maple Leafs at Boston Bruins Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

Ugh.

I will say no more. You can read all about it in the related item below.

How about some better news? The Orlando Solar Bears beat the South Carolina Stingrays in game one of their final. The losing goalie had just been named ECHL goalie of the year, making this even sweeter.

Heeter stopped all 36 shots he faced in his first ever post-season start and Hunter Fejes scored a short-handed goal that proved to be the game winner as the visiting Solar Bears blanked the Stingrays 2-0 in front of an announced and stunned crowd of 2,238 at the North Charleston Coliseum. Orlando can take a 2-0 series when the teams meet in game two Saturday night in North Charleston.

    It’s fine to lose one, but, I am quite worried based on what I saw on the ice last night.

    The Leafs are in a deep rebuild and this playoff run is a bonus. I am thinking about two years from now, not two days from now.

    Playoff windows open and close fast. The Leafs need to pull it together and win big in the very next game.
