Maple Leafs 'devastated' after Game 7 loss to Canadiens

Fall to 0-8 in potential series-winning games since advancing in 2004. Sheldon Keefe didn't have the words. The Toronto Maple Leafs had just lost 3-1 to the Montreal Canadiens in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup First Round.

What do the Maple Leafs do now?

If you are the Maple Leafs there can only be one question rattling around inside your heads today. Of all of the postseason shortcomings over the past two decades. All of the disappointments. All of the missed opportunities. This has to be the one that they look at and, I don’t know, just scream in anger.

Hey, Knicks fans: At least you’re not the Maple Leafs

How bad was the Toronto Maple Leafs’ collapse? It’s better to be a Knicks fan right now. The Toronto Maple Leafs didn’t just collapse in their first-round series, blowing a 3-1 lead to the Montreal Canadiens. As always, the other side of a collapse is a comeback, and the Habs came back from a 3-1 deficit to beat the Leafs.

Time Is Up

Last August, in the aftermath of a disappointing Maple Leafs playoff loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets, I wrote an article titled “Tick Tock.” Rather than a reference to the short video clip service popular with a generation of youths who do all sorts of weird shit I don’t understand, this meant that Kyle Dubas had one more shot to try and prove that this core was worthy of contention.

The team drew the Montreal Canadiens in Round 1, and after seven games, it failed.

Toronto Maple Leafs: Kyle Dubas and Killer Instinct

The Toronto Maple Leafs seeking the proper amount of killer instinct since 1967. For the unwavering legion of Toronto Maple Leafs fans knowing only agony, it’s akin to continually taking open-ice hits for the team…and spears to the groin…and pucks to the face. And, for the chorus of fans forever...

It’s put up or shut up time for the Maple Leafs’ core

The Leafs should be embarrassed about last night’s game. The team’s effort was completely unacceptable. Coming up short in overtime is one thing, but not showing up for the first 50 minutes of the game was pathetic. It’s absolutely inexcusable to fail to start on time. The Leafs came out...
