Toronto Maple Leafs: 

Analysis:

Leafs looked to have jump at the beginning but once again tailed off quickly and looked out of sorts on the ice

Need to Do:

Get the offence flowing. Stop Standing still. Cycle the puck stop trying to be fancy.

PP                 0/3                   2/3

Analysis:

Leafs looked sluggish and lack and offensive flair. This is looking to be a long game for Leafs. The Panthers dominated the whole period. Once again the defence looking really bad, but give credit to the Panthers on being aggressive on the defence.

Get the puck out of the zone quick and up the ice. Prolonged puck control in the zone and big guns needs to show up.
