The Toronto Maple Leafs had to collect themselves twice in about 24 hours. First, after Thursday’s loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets, they had to try to pull themselves together to get ready for Game 4.
TORONTO, ONTARIO - AUGUST 06: Oliver Bjorkstrand #28 of the Columbus Blue Jackets and Travis Dermott #23 of the Toronto Maple Leafs mix it up during the first period in Game Three of the Eastern Conference Qualification Round prior to the 2020 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at Scotiabank Arena on August 06, 2020 in Toronto, Ontario.
Speechless. Whether you’re a fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs or the Columbus Blue Jackets, my guess is that you’re speechless right now. Three goal leads are not safe in this series and Game 4 was no different as the Maple Leafs mimicked their opponents win in Game 3 with a comeback of their own.
Sheldon Keefe addressed the media after his team’s stunning comeback from 3-0 down inside the final four minutes of Game 4. On what he will remember most about the comeback: Just the resilience of our team and just how it put new life in our group.
Wow. Wow. Are we actually talking about the Leafs coming back from down three in an elimination game? Yes. Yes, we are. Jason Spezza: "I've never been apart of anything like that." — Chris Johnston (@reporterchris) August 8, 2020 It wasn’t perfect.
BUFFALO, NY - FEBRUARY 16: Egor Korshkov #96 of the Toronto Maple Leafs skates off the ice following their 5-2 loss to the Buffalo Sabres in an NHL game on February 16, 2020 at KeyBank Center in Buffalo, New York.
Another year and another Toronto Maple Leafs’ playoff collapse. The only positive to come from this one is the fact that it wasn’t in an elimination game and the Maple Leafs have less than 24 hours before they can try to put this one behind them.
