Leafs continue to burn the Flames.  5-3 win.  




However, someone please teach Rielly how to handle a 2-on-1 (and other Leafs D too I might add).  The Leafs don't have the fundamentals right defensively.  When you're defending, you take away the PASS and let the goalie handle the puck carrier. You don't suddenly switch coverage from one player to the next and put your goalie in a no-win situation. Skate over and cover the guy that doesn't have the puck. Sliding to block the pass is a 50/50 proposition. If you get it wrong, then the other team has a 2-on-0. But there's nothing worse than covering the puck carrier, leaving the other guy wide open, and then trying to skate over to the open man once the one-timer pass has been made. Both you and your goalie are toast at that point.
