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.

This was a weird game, to say the least. I'm not even sure if I'm comfortable with saying that a team won this game; rather, one where one lost less than the other. The two teams took turns waking up, falling asleep, and going back to step one. In this case, the Leafs were a little bit better at messing up, and the Habs took home two regulation points.

Marlies Blown Out By Milwaukee

If the AHL regular season ended last night, the 3rd place in the Western Conference Toronto Marlies would be put against the 6th place Milwaukee Admirals in the first round of the playoffs. There's still lots of time to go, but in the event that the standings remain the same, today's game will be a good example of how it might play out. Barring that, it's an opportunity to see Filip Forsberg, who I have an immense prospect crush on. Either way, the game lived up to the bill, though some goaltending mistakes by both Rookies and a stellar effort by Admirals netminder Scott Darling lead to a 5-1 loss.

LGD - Game 72: Return of the Bolland

The out-of-town scoreboard has not been kind to the Maple Leafs over the past week (as I type this, I notice that Philadelphia has just scored twice to take a 2-1 lead over St. Louis) so this Toronto-Montreal clash becomes less of a first-round preview and more of a… I hate to call it a must-win, but it may just be that.
