from Jonas Siegel of TSN,
Soldiering out of the Verizon Center in Washington D.C. on Sunday evening, Phil Kessel was aghast at what had just transpired.
“I’m steaming,” he told TSN.ca in a one-on-one conversation from Sunrise on Monday afternoon. “Why wouldn’t you be steaming? We got shutout two games in a row.”
For the second time in as many nights, the Leafs failed to score, a 2-0 loss to the Capitals just the latest gloomy decision in a thundering crash from the postseason picture. An unseemly stretch of hockey which continues to this day has seen the hockey club lose 14 of the past 16 games (2-12-2), a slide that lacks any reasonable comprehension.
Kessel says he’s never seen a meltdown of this magnitude at any point in his career, a losing skid so enduring that nothing seems capable of slowing it down. He’s noticeably frustrated with the tide the team has taken, unable to fathom how a group on its way to the postseason for the first time since the lockout could just drop off the face of hockey in a matter of weeks.
