Leafs just can't get a break

The Leafs' season couldn't be going much worse. Weak goaltending, inconsistent defense and an anemic offense. The team falls behind 2-0 most nights before they even work up a sweat.

Now even the officials are doing in the Leafs. During their 3-2 loss to Chicago on Friday night, there was one of those no-goal calls. Although you could see on replay the puck went into the net, the league officials ruled the replay to be inconclusive. A strange call since few replay calls ever are more conclusive than this one. Ron Wilson showed little emotion when another call went against the Leafs. The man is in serious need of anti-depressants. The call certainly had an impact on the game since the Leafs fell short by one goal.
