You make a valid point. But Orpik could have went down low and try to get his stick in the passing lane and let Kunitz take Kessel.


Or just stick with Kessel while he was at it. I'm sorry, but Orpik did nothing wrong on that goal.

Playing a very solid game except for the goal against. And no good shots on net.

Well, that was nice. I got to close my eyes for two minutes.

It's been a long week so far and I'm tired.

So Orpik has to leave his guy, Phil Kessel, while Kessel has the puck and let Kunitz defend him and then go down and pick up the guy on the far post all in about a second and a half? Do the Leafs freeze while we do this or how does that work? :lol:

Sutter has five less points than Staal, and is a +6 opposed to Staal's -3. Pretty happy with that production

Sucks to get shut out by Toronto, but it's hard to go this many games without putting up a bagel.

Until the organ version of Hold the Line I'd totally erased Toto from my memory banks. Now I'll have that in my head at work tonight

Look, when a goalie like Ben Scrivens puts up the force field, a shutout happens. Just accept it and move on.
