The Leafs frustrations have reached an all-time high in their semifinal series against the Florida Panthers, and clearly the whole team is feeling it. From the general manager Kyle Dubas throwing water bottles to the players losing it during practice, something is going to have to change if the Leafs want to regroup against Florida and win.

Samsonov Takes Out His Anger During Practice

As the Leafs try to prepare for games three and four in Florida, goaltender Ilya Samsonov has been a hot topic of conversation among fans. While the Russian goalie has been very good for Toronto, Florida's Sergei Bobrovsky has been lights-out spectacular for the Panthers. All this talk about net-minding even led to Samsonov letting an f-bomb fly in an interview the other night.
The Leafs practiced today in order to best prepare themselves for their game against Florida tomorrow, and fans noticed that Samsonov seemed off. One fan recorded a sequence where Samsonov got scored on, and then appeared to slam his stick off of his own net in frustration.
This isn't a great sign of where the Leafs' locker room mentality is at, and something big will likely need to change if they hope to come back from their 2-0 series deficit.
