The Toronto Maple Leafs suddenly find themselves down 2 to 0 in their second series versus the Panthers.

While they've mostly dominated play, they haven't been able to put the puck in the back of the net enough, thanks to the phenomenal play of Sergei Bobrovsky.

At the other end of the ice, fellow Russian Ilya Samsonov has been fighting it to start the series, after a mostly solid first round against Tampa.

In a clip from practice, you can see that Samsonov is very hard on himself, and is disappointed in the way he has been playing so far.

Can The Leafs Do It?



If the Leafs have any chance of climbing out of this hole, they're going to need him to be at the very minimum average.

As we saw what happened to the Bruins, subpar goaltending will not win you games, no matter how good your roster up front is.

It will interesting to see if he can make the adjustment moving forward. Out-goaltending Vezina caliber Sergei Bobrovsky is challenging, but it's not impossible.
