Maple Leafs Slump Is Concerning Coach Carlyle

randy_carlyle_2013The Toronto Maple Leafs suffered a 6-0 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Monday, but in some ways Wednesdays 6-5 shootout defeat to the Pittsburgh Penguins was worse.

Blowing a three-goal lead is crushing.

When listing off the elite teams in the NHL, the Maple Leafs might not be counted among them, but they do have the potential to be serious competitors.

And it has coach Randy Carlyle very concerned.

Well, I dont sleep well, he said, according to the Ottawa Citizen. I get stress headaches. I get a lot of things that you guys probably never experience. But thats all part of it. Thats why Im doing what Im doing. Theres an adrenalin that comes with it, but theres also some pretty big lows."
