Bryan McCabe, meanwhile, was a horrific minus-5 last night, sparking unhappy memories of his nightmarish performances against Philadelphia the last time the Leafs were in the Stanley Cup playoffs three years ago.
Instead of leading his team physically, McCabe wasn’t credited with a single official hit on the night in more than 26 minutes of playing time.

Last night, they weren’t just ineffective, they seemed devoid of the fire required for the Leafs to prosper in an atmosphere that was noisy and intimidating.
