There's serious trouble brewing in Toronto right now. The Leafs, so hot earlier in the season, have fallen back painfully recently, and especially since the turn of the calendar. They've lost their last three games by a combined score of 18-5, and against teams in the Rangers, Islanders and Hurricanes that have been far from consistent this year.

The Leafs are allowing a league-worst 36.4 shots per game, hanging out goalies Jonathan Bernier and James Reimer – both talented minders – to dry. When they fall behind in games, they not only lose, they tend to lose bad. Seven of their 21 wins – a full third – have come via shootout, which certainly wouldn't help them come playoff time… if they can even make the playoffs. They won't at this pace.
