Lack Of Energy One Of The Concerns For The Leafs

from Jonas Siegel of TSN,

The Maple Leafs were blasted 6-3 by the Blues at Scottrade Center on Thursday night. It was Toronto's eighth loss in the past 10 games (2-6-2), 13th in the past 19, and a drastic reversal in course from an inspired home loss to the Kings one night earlier.

"Tonight it looked like we were totally brain-dead in a lot of areas," said Randy Carlyle, following the defeat....

Concern has to be inching ever upward with the mounting losses and little to no sustained improvement. The Leafs have just two regulation victories since the start of November and face the defending Stanley Cup champs at home on Saturday. 

"Our concern has been very high for a while here," said Carlyle. "We thought with our performance [Wednesday] night it would be something we could build on, but we just didn't have any kind of an energy to be able to put forth an effort that was needed."
