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 Wednesday’s 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 don’t 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 that’s all part of it. That’s why I’m doing what I’m doing. There’s an adrenalin that comes with it, but there’s also some pretty big lows.”
