I've been watching hockey avidly for something like 23 years (well I didn't watch a lot in the early to mid 80's when I was sewing my wild oats). So I've seen lots of things.
But I think last night was the first time I saw a team actually throw a game. How else to explain the performance of a team who on Tuesday played one of their best games of the season only to seem so out of it last night?
Did they even get a shot on Cristobal? Well yes 34. But I don't seem to recall him making any tough saves.
But then again I stopped paying really close attention after the first period. I pegged this game as a must win for the Leafs. If not the best they could hope for was not to lose ground by winning Saturday's game. If the Leafs had won last night all of the pressure would have been on Montreal to win Saturday's game.
As it stands Montreal answered the bell last night. The Leafs just hit the snooze button and rolled over.
