Oh man. The Leafs didn’t take Ottawa seriously enough.
Senator goalie Patrick Lalime was ripe to be picked off. He’s coming off a pretty bad season. If Toronto could have gotten any kind of forecheck going, they could have probably taken Lalime out of the series.
Instead they let Ottawa pepper them with 30 shots.
Ottawa beat the Leafs 4-2.
I wonder if Toronto thinks they’re so good, they don’t need to play mean or tough anymore. And I wonder if they’re going to get ugly for game two Saturday.
