The Toronto Maple Leafs are currently going through one of the toughest stretches of Sheldon Keefe's tenure as Head Coach. The Leafs have appeared disengaged and uninterested in competing shift after shift. Luckily for them after a 4-2 loss to the Los Angeles Kings, the team is right back at it tonight in Anaheim.

Heading into the game Keefe made significant changes to all his lines excluding his top line. Keefe was clearly trying to send a message to his players to play hard and compete for a full 60 minutes. It appears most of the team got that message, well except for Alex Kerfoot.
During the 1st period Calle Jarnkrok throws a puck on net that appears to beat John Gibson. The only problem was the puck never crossed the goal line. The good news for the Leafs was that Alex Kerfoot was standing in the perfect spot to bang in the loose puck, or so you'd think...
Instead Kerfoot decided prematurely that the puck was going to easily cross the line and he'd already thrown his hands into the air to celebrate the goal. The puck then trickled wide and to add insult to injury, the Ducks turned the puck up ice and scored the game tying goal.
Many would expect this sort of play would help Kerfoot find himself stapled to the bench, but it turned out that wasn't true as he was on the ice again shortly after. After 1 period the Leafs lead 2-1 as they try and get things going in their direction.
