It looks like things will continue to get worse before they get better. After outshooting Toronto 15-5 in the first period but failing to grab a lead, the Leafs took control of the game as they skated to an easy 5-2 win over a soft-looking team from Montreal. Carey Price was very weak, Kovalev looked like Kovalev usually does and that’s that.
Of note is the fact that Sergei Kostitsyn and Mikhail Grabovski never did finish the bout they started the last time these teams met.
Trade Kovalev for a bag of pucks and get Halak in for some of these games in the West!
