The Toronto Maple Leafs outshot their opponents Wednesday, bucking a trend that’s developed over most nights, and still lost.
Jones, 23, is now a perfect 4-0-0 to begin his National Hockey League career. He’s also got two shutouts.
But the Leafs’ players were trying to focus on the positives, despite the result.
“You can take positives from it (and) we have to. That was one of the best games we played in awhile & we can all hang our hat on that,” said Toronto forward Mason Raymond, as per Mark Masters of TSN.
“Probably the best game we’ve played so far … We did a lot of things we can build on,” added Franson.
Goalie Jonathan Bernier, facing his old L.A. teammates as a member of the Maple Leafs, gave up three goals on 23 shots and was critical of himself afterwards, telling reporters his team “deserved a better fate.”
