Although Saturday night's meltdown was a team effort, a large share of the blame had to fall to Belfour, who set the stage for the collapse when he gave up a pair of soft first-period goals. He was pulled early in the second after giving up four goals on nine shots. A team source said last week that the plan was to start Belfour tonight against the Leafs, for whom he played the past three seasons, but that may no longer be the case. "I don't think it gets any easier as you get older," he said Saturday before declining to address the media after Sunday's hourlong workout at Ricoh Coliseum. "You're still angry and disappointed. (You) just try to learn from it, try to take something from it."
