Leafs Losses Continue

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star,

...as the club flew to southern California after the game and contemplated four more contests on the road over the next seven days, there was at least a smidgen of hope that perhaps, like receding flood waters, the worst is over.

That, of course, may be a mirage. Good teams playing bad teams often play down to their level, and the Canucks are considered one of the better squads in the Western Conference and didn’t deliver a virtuoso performance last night. Luongo did, however, making 35 saves and adding a new wrinkle of frustration for Leafs head coach Ron Wilson.

“Tonight (Luongo) found his game,” said Wilson. “If we’d played him two weeks ago we might have scored six goals.”

Easy now, Ron. With his team having scored just three pathetic goals in the past three games, the circumstances necessary to produce a bucketful of scores from his stone-handed group would go beyond a so-so goaltending performance at the other end of the rink. Try soccer nets.
