Needing to essentially beat Boston AND Philly back-to-back to make the playoffs? Yikes…

The leafs didn’t get hosed there, there is a video on TSN where they break down where the puck was the entire time, and at no point did the goalie have it. In fact, for a good portion of the time the goalie was holding Leopolds stick who was tugging to get it back, and as soon as he let go, Leopold scored. It was sort of awesome actually. Was an absurdly long scrum though.

I’d be pissed if I were a Leafs fan or if that happened to the Red Wings…but…eventually I’d have to agree that the right call was made (or not made) in this case.

mrfluffy: As a Caps fan who was watching on Center Ice and hoping that Buffalo would lose in regulation, my feelings on the play are pretty much what you just said.
