The Toronto Maple Leafs are losing a lot of hockey games right now. Not just losing, but putting up final scores that look like they forgot the game was happening that night. Jerseys are pouring onto the ice from angry fans, sometimes in the middle of play. People are calling for heads, or at least transactions. I get it; the realization that a single firing isn't a magic cure-all to the standings is a harsh one. But if these last six games are any sort of indication; things will turn around.

Another Leafs game, another jersey tossed onto the ice. At this point it's more regular than my morning bowel movements. The Leafs are beginning another late season collapse, they're on the verge of missing the playoffs for the 9th time in 10 years, and Leaf fans are more fed up than ever before.

This morning the Leafs made a couple minor moves, sending down Sam Carrick and Troy Bodie to the Marlies, and recalling Josh Leivo and Stuart Percy.

The decision to bring up a defenceman has raised some questions about Robidas and whether he'll be put on injured reserve. It was reported yesterday that the 37-year-old has been battling an injury for the past two months and would be sitting a few games to rest up.
Both call-ups have already seen eight games with the big club this season, Leivo notching a single point while Percy has tallied three.
The Leafs will be in Kanata to play the Senators tomorrow night.

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, so I'm pretty sure Cody Franson just wrote my recap for me. I'm sure he's as frustrated as anybody; he's having his coming out party this year, and he's doing it on his childhood team. The issue? They're not reciprocating, and just had another competitive yet very disappointing performance, losing 4-1 to the Carolina Hurricanes.
