from Nick Kypreos at the Toronto Star,
With 30 games left after the all-star break, it remains to be seen if last Friday’s 6-2 loss to the Ottawa Senators will go down as the Maple Leafs’ worst defeat of the season. But the fallout from that game is still very much a topic of conversation.
It begs the question: How will Matt Murray’s unexpected missed start shape the way Leafs management views this team’s goaltending situation heading into the final stretch of the season?
Wednesday night’s 5-2 loss to the Boston Bruins didn’t exactly help the case for Ilya Samsonov, who allowed three goals on seven shots in the third period. How comfortable will they feel with whoever is staring down Tampa Bay’s Andrei Vasilevskiy.
Ironically, the current situation is eerily similar to the one that played out with former Leafs netminder Frederik Andersen in the Amazon Prime docuseries “All or Nothing” that followed the team during the 2020-21 season.
Leaf fans know what is coming they’ve been fooled by the commitment to defense all these AAAA players up from the Marlies have been providing—but with the regulars starting to get healthy everyone know what that 1st round will bring.
I hate this. Let these fans see a series but F off
