Kadri 12 shots
With sparks out of the net there is a chunk of ice standing taller than he was
OMG im getting sick of watching how this team plays. 1 Good game against a top team followed by the worst game of the year against a bottom team. 2 terrible periods followed by 10 minutes of good play.
The sheer skill of some of the players is the only thing that keeps this team from being in the bottom 10 right now. We have won so many games this year that we deserved to lose its not even funny. There are no excuses about back to backs or anything like that because all teams suffer it. These guys play %75 of the games like its their third in a row, just lazy lackluster, no effort, no urgency and no care.
The sad thing is with 2 minutes left they have the skill to still come back. But man I hope they dont because they dont deserve it at all.
Probably blocked by the horseshoe between his a55...
Depends if he saw it or not. I know for me, its just automatic.
If he couldn't see the puck, its instinct to drop to your knees and try and take up as much net as you can. Its what you are taught to do as soon as you strap on pads.
The reason he looks like hes ducking is he's trying to raise his shoulders, its actually a well placed shot for a butterfly goalie. Right over the shoulder, by the ears, it's a tougher shot than it looks.
My criticism as a goalie though, is he wasn't out far enough. He was just inside the top of the crease. One step out and it probably just hits his shoulder. But that's my usual criticism of him, he lacks positional awareness imo. It was the same as the 2nd goal. Everyones taken, you have the shot, power out, give him nothing. If he beats you going around, then good goal.
After the third Ranger goal I just stopped watching.
What? Rielly won that race easy.
I thought Gardiner was a great skater.
Just... just one of those games. Frustrating.
55 shots. This is a tough one.
Not happening tonight lol
It sure the hell IS NOT Matthews right now.
Rangers are redirecting or blocking everything.
He really doesn’t deserve to be out there
They've had like 10 saves that Sparks would have had no chance on (not his fault of course).
It was always obvious that the Nylander contract would be a steal because the Leafs burned 1 year of his ELC.
Time for bed, skippy
More shots at the crest!
I mean, this games over. 2 goals in 1:49? How many times has that ever happened?
Just give it to JT it's no slight on Auston. Tavares is a natural leader.
Damn Dermott hit crossbar
Goalie won this for the Rangers.
Sparks let in a stinker... and we had no push pack after that.
**** happens. On to the next game.
Leafs are a team that plays much worse than the sum of its parts. VERY sad
