Things just aren’t going right for the Toronto Maple Leafs these days.
After last night’s devastating loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Leafs will look to rebound tomorrow night against the Buffalo Sabres. With a shellacking from the Columbus Blue Jackets and a meltdown against the Penguins in the past two games, the Leafs need to learn to play a full 60-minute game sooner rather than later.
