Tonight, the Leafs were in sunny Florida to take on the team on their heels, the Florida Panthers. This game was a huge test for Toronto against an opponent just 2 points back with a game in hand in the battle for third spot in the Atlantic Divison heading into tonight.
The Leafs held on to win a close game 5-3, and below are some thoughts on just how this important contest went tonight for the Maple Leafs.
Bad, Bad Goaltending
It seems like this goes into every postgame lately, but Frederik Andersen has just not been himself this season. This really soft goal from a bad angle highlighted a terrible performance tonight in a huge game from the netminder.

Thankfully, Toronto wasn’t the only team in this game that suffered from a poor showing in net. This powerplay goal for the Leafs simply shouldn’t be able to get through a goalie getting paid as much as Sergei Bobrovksy is.
