OPEN WIDE

Phil Kessel had a nightmare moment in the first period when he passed the puck back while deep in the Montreal zone on a delayed Habs' penalty and had it go between both defencemen and get almost to the blue paint of the empty Leafs goal before Francois Beauchemin rescued it.

TERRIBLE TWOS

The Leafs fell behind 2-0 for the 19th time this season after giving up the game's first goal for the 28th time. They missed again in search of their first come-from-behind win after trailing entering the third period.

QUICK DRAWS

After 40 minutes, the Leafs had a shocking 70%-30% edge in faceoffs, led by Matt Stajan winning nine of 11. Mikhail Grabovski ended the night winning 10 of 11, but the Leafs still lost.
