0-6-1??

That’s what my Toronto Maple Leafs have accomplished to start out the 2009/10 season.

Wow.

Each game you think that this will be the night they break out of this downward spiral, and each night the game gets turned off in favour of some other TV show or movie, as it’s too painful to watch! I don’t even know how to explain the lack of skill that the team is showing. At first, everyone thought it was just the players getting used to each other, or “gelling”, but that excuse is getting old very quickly. Now they just look like a bunch of guys playing pickup hockey…no teamwork…definitely no defence!

They have this whole week off and then they’re in Vancouver to start a road trip…with the way they’ve been getting booed off the ice, they are all probably looking forward to not having to play at the ACC for a couple of weeks. Let’s hope they can get off this seven-game road trip a little closer to a .500 record (yeah, riiiiiiiiight)!

In NCWHL news, our team played yesterday morning and although it was a close game it was a disappointing 1-0 loss to Sloot Masonry. They beat us to the puck and managed to get one lucky screened shot past our goalie in the first period. I felt good out on the ice. Think my lungs are finally catching up to being back out there 🙂

We play two games back-to-back this coming weekend – Saturday night and then Sunday afternoon…hopefully I can keep up to that pace!
