That’s the Death Valley we’re accustomed to. Wow.

It’s time for a James Reimer intervention…

  • Watching Reimer’s reaction after that first goal was rough. I physically felt myself lose confidence. Although from his position watching how fast the Sharks were may have done that to anyone in net because that was foreshadowing for the game. It’s tough to watch him, but he has to figure it out and get himself in a mindset like in 2012 or 2013 which I imagine was something like knowing he was going to get hung out to dry and just not get so rattled.

    Also agree about the Colton Orr thing. I doubt anyone will care about Tommy Wingels denying a stupid fight after a hit, but that tip in goal was too nasty and I’m sure his teammates appreciated that a lot more. Potential for goals >>>> fights in general for getting fired up. The Leafs thrive at just putting games away in minutes, so there’s no reason to not just front load offensively on all 4 lines and build momentum off of it.
