Fun quotes from the Maple Leafs about Blues’ blowout win

It took over 10 minutes for the Leafs to register their first shot on goal and the Blues had no issues moving the puck around the ice in a dominant display. There are a lot of ways you could describe the 6-1 beating if you’re a Blues fan, but it’s always more enjoyable hearing from the players who were on...
