Michael Hutchinson allowed three goals on 10 shots in relief of the injured Frederik Andersen as the Toronto Maple Leafs blew a 3-1 lead in the third period of Monday's loss to the Florida Panthers.
Following the performance, Jonas Siegel of The Athletic wrote that the Maple Leafs must look into upgrading their goaltending - whether or not Andersen misses time.
Hutchinson dropped to 4-8-1 on the season with Monday's loss with an .886 save percentage and a 3.62 goals-against average and Siegel writes that the team can't rely on him to help their playoff push, either while covering for Andersen or in spot starts.
Maple Leafs head coach Sheldon Keefe offered a defence of Hutchinson's performance after Monday's collapse, but declined to answer when asked about his confidence level in the 29-year-old should Andersen miss time.

Recent big and hard hits in the NHL.
A good read, it is not often we hear from the agents.
from Craig Custance of The Athletic,
...when we were rolling out our popular NHL player polls in January, it seemed natural to follow up with a group of questions to the people who represent those players. The hope was they’d provide some unique insight. And boy, did they deliver.
In all, 22 agents weighed in for our first anonymous NHL Player Agent Poll, with the totals and comments...
Which GM do you find most unreasonable to deal with?
“Bob Murray (Ducks). He likes to be prickly.”
“Bob Murray or Jeff Gorton (Rangers). Here’s the thing about Gorton, he only goes back when it’s on his terms. But Murray is the worst. He hates agents in general.”

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,
“It’s kind of the same old song and dance,” Luke Glendening said.
This is their third streak of eight or more losses. At 12-38-4 and with 28 points, they are 15 points behind the next-worst team in the NHL. They are on pace for one of the three-worst seasons in franchise history....
“I was blessed to be around some great leaders my first couple of years here, and those are things that they instilled in us when we were young,” Glendening said. “The older guys here now are just trying to instill the same things, as difficult as it might be.
“Every time we think we’ve hit rock bottom we go a little further. We got to stick with it. I thought against the Rangers on Saturday (1-0 loss) we played well. But then we kind of went backwards tonight.”
from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,
Mired in another long losing streak, the Detroit Red Wings are trying to figure out how to move forward.
They have two days before their next game, Thursday at the Buffalo Sabres, to take a hard look at themselves. The Wings have lost 38 times through 54 games, most recently Monday at Little Caesars Arena, where a lackluster effort led to a 3-0 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers.
While the season is lost – a seven-game winning streak would still leave the Wings in 31st place in the NHL standings – good habits are vital to nurture.
Scott Wheeler of The Athletic lists Detroit's prospect pool at #9.
THREE HARD LAPS
* In a pivotal contest in the Atlantic Division standings, the Panthers erased a multi-goal, third-period deficit to stun the Maple Leafs. Their four such victories are tied with the Capitals for the most among all clubs in 2019-20.
* Kevin Hayes netted his second shorthanded goal in as many games and Brian Elliott posted another shutout as the Flyers climbed back into the Eastern Conference’s playoff picture.
* Thirty-five-year-old Joe Pavelski registered his second multi-goal game of the season to lead the Stars past 18-year-old Kaapo Kakko and the Rangers.
