Well, so far it has been a less than auspicious beginning to the Leafs' season. We've lost all three games and have given up 12 goals--only the mighty Vancouver Canucks have given up more with 13. Opening night was easily the best we've played, losing in overtime to the Habs. In the second game, the Caps had us down 6-1 until we pulled it together enough in the third period to score three more and make it a far more respectable 6-4. And last night in the Battle of Ontario we played some sloppy defense and lost 2-1, though admittedly we pressed well in the third period and Komisarek would have had a goal, but his blistering slapshot caromed off both posts behind Pascal Leclaire. I must applaud Jonas "The Monster" Gustavasson because he looked very strong in the net and I really can't blame him too much for how he was beat by Daniel Alfredsson on the penalty shot (oh, thanks for that Luke Schenn!).

Wilson called out his team in the media after the game, saying that "they stunk" and that he is going to be skating them hard on Wednesday morning.

I hope to see some improvement boys...
