It sure looked like a frustrating night in the Motor City for Phil Kessel and it went deeper than just being held off the scoresheet for a second consecutive night. There was a nasty slash to the wrist that sent him to the dressing room in the third period and a brief visit from team doctors. There was a comical, bumbled slapshot attempt from the point. And there was his role in a too many men bench penalty late in the third when his usual tardy return to the Leafs bench could have burned him. But must of all, there was the pesky checking of the Red Wings, an effective blueprint drawn up by Detroit coach Mike Babcock that was effective over the past two nights as the Wings swept the two-g

With back to back losses to the Detroit Red Wings, the Toronto Maple Leafs now look ahead to facing the New York Islanders on Tuesday. Things won’t get any easier on Tuesday—Toronto is taking on a team that is on fire and appears to be the real deal with a 0.800 win percentage. Trying to take positives from a team that’s coming off of back-to-back losses to the Wings, the Maple Leafs haven’t held a team goalless The post Sunday Mashup: Not All Bad appeared first on Maple Leafs Hotstove.

This was a bit of an odd game, scoring chance wise. The Maple Leafs had a superior possession performance to what they managed Friday night, but — particularly in the third period — they weren’t able to turn that possession into scoring chances, as they generated few shots from the ‘home plate’ area. Jonas Gustavsson had to make saves down the stretch, but wasn’t tested nearly as stringently as Jonathan  Bernier was.

In a second straight loss to the Detroit Red Wings, the Leafs' David Clarkson played some of his best hockey for the Maple Leafs. The third line of Clarkson, Santorelli, and Komarov was the best line for the Leafs on Saturday night, creating chaos in the Red Wing's zone.

The Maple Leafs will have to settle for just one point out of four as the weekend back to back Detroit ended with a last-second OT loss at the Joe. And a Jonas Gustavsson shutout (smh). This was a fairly even game for most of it, with the Leafs actually edging the Wings in shot attempts, 54-48 in all situations and 45-39 at even strength.
