Buds implode after a 3-0 lead

Yeah, it's the same teaser pic I used when I uploaded a game recap back during Mike's tenure. What's good for the goose is good for his replacement.
Your move, Keefe.
Ooh, and I assume if I comment at the Athletic (again) that it's alarming how the Leafs blow big leads, today the throngs won't dismiss the concern. Last week someone cited that they're 12-1 when leading after two periods, and therefore the fact that the Leafs gave up a couple of third period goals when leading 3-0 was no biggie.
How about today's implosion? How about giving up 5 after leading 3-0? Is that the sign of a problem? Or is it OK cuz they did it in the second period rather than the third?
I'm uploading this article after two periods. Hopefully the Leafs score 8 in the 3rd, win by a landslide, and this grip of mine looks silly to some fans an hour from now. But regardless what happens in the 3rd, from my where I sit, this is madness. Giving up 5 after leading 3-0 is bush league, whether you come back or not.
