Angry Leafs fans sound off after team blows 5-1 lead to last-place Senators

Toronto Maple Leafs fans are once again feeling the sting of a blown lead.

The team blew a 5-1 lead against the lowly Ottawa Senators last night and lost the game in overtime 6-5.

Toronto dominated the early parts of the game outshooting the Senators 13-4 in the first period held a 5-1 lead up until the final seconds of the second period. That is when it started to go wrong as Ottawa forward Nick Paul scored a shorthanded goal with nine seconds left in the period to cut the lead to 5-2.

From there it was all downhill for the Leafs as they allowed three straight goals in the third period and the overtime winner to lose the game which had looked like such a slam dunk win earlier.

Leafs fans took to social media in droves to express their anger and dismay at the team for blowing another game, as the team has famously done in the past.
