Another back-to-back game, another victory, though this was a little less clinical than other games against the Flyers.
In the Leafs first game against Philly, I had the chances at 20-4. Admittedly, my chances formula has improved since then, but it was probably the team’s strongest defensive performance on the season. Maybe in this game, it was either due to the back-to-back or the overconfidence against a bad team, but the Flyers had been playing good hockey in this stretch (this game would wind up being the Flyers only loss in a stretch of eight games) and Toronto probably had to rely on Matt Murray a little more than they’d like to.
