Evening Line- Craig Berube

via Jeremy Rutherford tweets,

Berube: "We were terrible in the first period. Every player. Terrible … I don't know how you're not ready to play. We won two games, we're feeling good, ready to roll, and we've got a team (Calgary) that played yesterday afternoon in Minnesota.

Berube cont'd: "A real good opportunity to make it three in a row and start feeling good. And we just lay and egg. No good. Couldn't make a play, couldn't check, no composure, no team play."

The Blues lost 7-2 at home to the Flames today.

added 6:38pm, Watch Berube post-game below.

Jonathan Quick After A 4-3 OT Loss To The Pittsburgh Penguins

from Zach Dooley of LAKingsInsider,

Jonathan Quick on the team battling back
We lost. [expletive] effort’s not enough, you know? That’s a given, effort should be there every [expletive] night. We lost, so that’s how it works.

On if there are any positives to take from tonight’s game
We got one. One point’s better than zero.

On whether this is the most frustrating stretch he’s had over a sustained period of time
It’s a one day at a time job. We lost today, that sucks. Wake up tomorrow and now we’re working on winning the next game, that’s all it is. It doesn’t matter if we won the last ten or lost the last ten, it doesn’t matter. It’s a one day at a time job. It sucks today, losing, tomorrow we’ll wake up and get ready to try and win the next one.

The Sputtering Toronto Maple Leafs

from Dave Feschuk of the Toronto Star,

You know you’re in a hopeless hockey market when the Maple Leafs roll into town and the Florida Panthers announce they’re celebrating something known as “Legacy Saturday.”

What’s it matter that there are Taco Bell franchises with grander traditions and better in-seat ambience than an NHL team born in 1993? Marketing departments must market. So Saturday’s “Legacy” honouree was Bryan McCabe, the former Maple Leafs defenceman, who dropped the ceremonial first puck. If you were fuzzy on McCabe’s connection to the Panthers, he played a grand total of 199 games with the team — approximately 18% of his great NHL career. He played nearly three times as many games in Toronto, playoffs included....

And, yes, the Maple Leafs deployed both a penalty kill and a power play on Saturday night. But their “special” teams have been especially awful of late. The alleged penalty killers offered only token resistance to a Panthers power play that scored on two of its first three opportunities to take a 2-0 lead. That’s four straight games the Maple Leafs have given up at least one goal while short-handed.

The slumping Maple Leafs power play, meanwhile, also continued its swoon. Even gifted a four-minute advantage in the second period, it couldn’t bust loose, somehow finding itself outshot 3-2. Blanked on four opportunities all told, Toronto is now one for its last 22 attempts with the man advantage.
