Maple Leafs’ Recent Struggles Don’t Mean Season is Over

By Lukas Hardonk (@LukasHardonk) The Toronto Maple Leafs’ 2011-2012 season began eerily similar to their 2010-2011 campaign, as a 4-0-1 record had people wondering if this team was for real. Last season, it turned out that the Leafs weren’t. They struggled to win in their next 12 games, as they tallied just one win over that span. This season, the Leafs got off to a 4-0-1 start...
