Yeah we won Silver!
Hey I'm used to disappointment. I'm a Maple Leaf fan.
Over 35 tournaments the medal count is 15 Golds, 8 Silvers and 4 Bronzes. Nothing to be ashamed about.
As for the massive meltdown as it's being characterized, well it happens all the time in sports. Just this season I can recall several NHL games where teams have blown 3 goal leads.
On November 16th the Maple Leafs overcame a 4-1 deficit to beat Nashville 5-4.
On December 6th the did it again when the Maple Leafs scored 3 goals in the third period to come back from a 4-1 deficit and then win in overtime against Washington.
On December 8th, it was San Jose who overcame a 3rd period 4-1 deficit to time the game in regulation time and win in the shootout against the Flyers.
If the Leafs can do it twice in just 3 weeks then its no big deal.
