Leafs didn't play that poorly, and the Canucks didn't play that great but the right team won in the end.

I love listening to the CBC homers squirm when the Leafs are losing. You can literally hear them squirming when they try to spin a positive out of a team that has ONE win in the last twelve. Eight losses in a row and eleven losses in the last twelve games and the homers are still spinning everything in a positive light. And yes, the great saviour Kadri is going to swoop in from the Marlies and save the day. Leave the poor kid with the Marlies. Aulie too.

I thought Giguere was having a good game and outplaying Luongo for the most part until Raymond's goal. Obviously a terrible goal and probably the key turning point for the Canucks. But the good teams take advantage of their good luck and the bad teams moan and cry and point fingers.

Leafs really turned it on in the 3rd period but Luongo shut it down after letting 2 early ones in in the 1st and one other goal in afterward. They were desperate for a victory but it didn't happen.

Poor Kadri and the circus the kid had to endure on such a big stage. I hope he does develop in to a good player for the Leafs because he does have some skill, but that's a lot of burden to carry.

Giguere was excellent for the Leafs and you could barely fault him for the goals except for the Raymond one. Luongo made timely saves, and if he can keep doing that even when the team isn't have a great game, we're going to win a few more here and there.

Are you saying the Canucks don't have talent on the front end like the Leafs? ;)

Cody playing in the AHL, for this year, is the best thing for him and I truly believe that, but that's a discussion for another thread and another time.
