Peter Horachek probably isn't all that thrilled with the beginning of the Peter Horachek era in Toronto. In two games under the new bench boss, the Leafs have dropped both and gone scoreless. Sure, it's two tough games on the road against two of the best teams in hockey, and sure, the Leafs have suddenly started playing pretty decent defence (relatively speaking), but 0-2-0 just isn't a pretty record.
The piling injuries aren't helping either. Joffrey Lupul, Peter Holland, Leo Komarov, and now David Booth are on the mend and won't be lining up tonight. Matt Frattin, the AHL Marlies' leading scorer, has been recalled.
This patchwork lineup will have to find their scoring touch pretty quickly if they hope to hang with the Sharks tonight in San Jose.

The Leafs only want love if it's torture.

It was a tough night in Anaheim for the Leafs. Coming off a tough but promising loss to the defending champion L.A. Kings, Toronto hoped to turn a good process into a good result and bounce back to keep the hope of a successful road trip alive. Well, they didn't quite have it tonight and the Ducks took advantage. And while they still showed signs of improvement, they didn't deserve the win tonight. In the shakiest effort under new coach Peter Horachek yet, the Leafs were shutout against and fell 4-0.

There's been a whole lot of nonsense in my Twitter dot com feed lately, and I'm not talking about Bobby Cappuccino.

What is this? Seriously? Jeffler wrote a good piece this morning on why trading Phil Kessel would be a dumb idea, but I guess nobody smartened up and we are apparently still talking about it.
