Leafs Hold A “Heart-To-Heart Talk” After Losing To the Islanders

from Steve Buffery of the Toronto Sun,

The boos finally began at the 13:56 of the third period, when Mississauga’s Matt Moulson put the New York Islanders ahead 3-2.

A few seconds later, a sporadic chant of “Fire Burkie” began.

And when Andy Frost announced: “Last minute of play in the game”, a cheer broke among the few fans left inside the Air Canada Centre.

And all this time we thought it was Ron Wilson’s fault.

The Leafs have three wins in 10 games since Randy Carlyle was hired on March 2 and some of the games have been ugly, their past two perhaps the worst of all — an 8-0 beating in Boston on Monday and a brutal performance against the mediocre New York Islanders on Tuesday, which saw the Leafs manage only 14 shots in a 5-2 loss (while giving up 34).

After the game, which ended at 9:26 p.m., the Leafs had — in goalie James Reimer’s words — a “heart-to-heart talk” inside the dressing room, before the media was finally allowed in.
