Leafs postgame - No intent to blow; Leafs lose 2-1 in shootout at MSG

Has David Clarkson ever been photographed standing up?

For the second consecutive game, the Toronto Maple Leafs lost in a shootout. For the second consecutive game, they were probably lucky to get a point in the first place, albeit under completely different circumstances.

Toronto was again out-shot heavily, this time at Madison Square Garden, and again failed to win in regulation. In the last 18 games, their only win through 60 minutes has come against Chicago, but they're piling up the points in the third standings column, and enter the three-day Christmas break at 18-16-5.

But the progress over the last few games was halted. We were back to the early season refrain for Toronto. Too many penalties, too many shots against, and too few engines running offensively. The Leafs were helped out thanks to another excellent goaltending performance from Jonathan Bernier, and a controversial late tying goal that sent the game to overtime. 2-1 is the official final.

My Leafs Nation Christmas Wish List

With Christmas upon us I wanted to leave the big guy, (Santa Claus, not Dustin Byfuglien) my wish list:

Randy Carlyle - The first thing Carlyle needs is a toaster that works. He also needs a healthy Dave Bolland and an offence that produces more than two goals per game. He needs to have all markers, pens and any other writing material taken away from him, thus preventing him from ever making Morgan Rielly a healthy scratch ever again.

LGD - Game 39: Leafs @ Rangers - Tis the season for poem parodies

Twas the night before the Christmas break when heard through the din
Some creatures called Leafs fans, all hoping for one more win
The jerseys were hung in the visitors locker room with care
Back home in Toronto, the streets were icy and bare

People snug in their houses, with hot chocolate and Leafs snuggies
Visions of a second regulation win in 18 games, be it pretty or ugly
And the Rangers the opponent, they've been struggling of late too
With 14 games on tonight's schedule, none more important for these two

Should the Leafs win, it will be a second in three for the blue and white
Stay safe and stay warm, Merry Christmas and good night
