For all the talk lately about how bad the Leafs have been, the Coyotes have been just as terrible. Well, almost as terrible. Both of these teams are on seven game losing streaks, but the Coyotes have two shootout loses versus the Leafs one, so "take that Toronto!" say all 50 Coyotes fans.
With that being said, the Leafs are playing for the second consecutive night after
tying losing on the road to the Devils last night, 2-1 in a shootout. This will be the 12th time Toronto is playing on consecutive days, with a record of 5-5-1 in the second game of these situations. Unfortunately for the Leafs, they've decided to go with Jonathan Bernier in net again, and if history tells us anything, it's that starting a goalie on consecutive nights is never a good idea.

Ever since the consecutive debacles against the Sabres and Predators, the Leafs have been world beaters. They've won four of their last five games, their only blemish being an overtime loss to the Penguins. They've also scored at least three goals in all of those games, including five or more in three of those games.

Unfortunately, it all came tumbling down tonight in a game that saw the Leafs lose 4-1 on home ice, culminating in a Phaneuf jersey thrown on the ice near the end of the game.

Isn’t Joffrey Lupul sweet? He’s a good looking man, he’s got Lupe’s troops and he can score goals. Hell, my girlfriend loves him. You know what else? He gets injured a lot. When he’s healthy, he’s productive and when he’s not . . . well, he’s not. And far too often lately, it’s been the latter. There’s only so much a man of his social stature can achieve when he spends a considerable amount of time in the press box.
