When the Leafs lose there seems to be many, many more moments of comedy, and/or dangerous skate kicking motions.

First, Mike Brown caught Coyotes veteran defenceman Ed Jovonoski with a hit he didn’t appreciate too much. It’s just a shame Jovo was too dazed to dance, because that would have been a good tilt.

Then Clarke MacArthur fell victim to the flip kick, latest in hockey skirmish maneuvers. Now all that’s missing is for a fighter to take his skate off and try to stab someone.
