I'm not even worried about this game. It was a bad game. There were some really questionable goals. The Leafs have lost five straight. If a couple of teams that have games in hand win a single one of them, they're out of a playoff spot. David Clarkson has two points in his past 24 games, and James Reimer's stock is crashing faster than Enron's.

But please, just let Phil Kessel be okay. That's all I ask. That was a rough helmet hit to the head, and while he came back on seconds after the ref held him back (of course he did, it's the Leafs), he didn't seem in great shape after impact. That play would be an awful way to finally miss a game with the team, having played in 362 straight since his debut. Let's talk about the game, though.

After a disappointing 5-1 loss against the Milwaukee Admirals yesterday afternoon, the Toronto Marlies had to come into today with clear minds and an eagerness to rebound from their prior mistakes. Their opponents today were the Abbotsford Heat, hot off the heels of a 5-1 game themselves, in their case a win against Hamilton. Would it be the home team's wakeup call or the visitor's momentum that ruled the day? Somehow, it was both. The Marlies stormed out to start, the Heat took over for most of the game, and a major penalty gave Toronto the last push they needed to pull out a 3-2 win.

LGD - Game 73: Leafs @ Devils - Baby got Back to Back

The Toronto Maple Leafs' goaltenders save percentage is now a ghastly 9th in the National Hockey League, and James Reimer's has fallen below the league average for starters on the year over the last two games.

The losing streak isn't James Reimer's fault so much as it's been that Reimer's regrettably been the guy in the net as the team continues to fall hard. Toronto has given up the first goal in each game of the losing streak, and have earned 13 shot attempts to the opponents' 22 before the first goal is scored in those games, so by all means… blame the goalie.
