“Fundamentally as a coach I believe we can win every game. No matter what’s happening, that’s my approach,” head coach Sheldon Keefe said. “Our execution was off with the puck here today.
“Just weren’t sharp.”
Truth is, the Maple Leafs almost escaped New York with a win, despite bringing their B-game.
Passes weren’t quite as crisp, neither side gave away too much on the inside, and the Leafs’ uncharacteristically sloppy power play went 0-for-4. “Horrible, really,” Marner said.
Puck management was an issue, too. Toronto committed 29 giveaways to New York’s nine. Marner had six of those, Auston Matthews four.
And yet, at even strength, the game was a 1-1 draw, and the Leafs held an edge in most possession metrics.
“They had two scoring chances, really, and scored on them both,” Keefe said.
