TORONTO -- Randy Carlyle still has some work to do. http://www.atleticomadridsoccer.es/hombre-antoine-griezmann-atletico-madrid-autenticas-camiseta-15-16-nike-7-soccer-rojas-blanco-stripes-home-la-liga-club-atatat.html . The new coach put his Toronto Maple Leafs through two lengthy practices after taking over for Ron Wilson, but the team met a familiar fate against the Boston Bruins -- dropping a 5-4 decision on Tuesday night. "Youve got enough goals to win the hockey game," said Carlyle. "Its the defensive aspect of it that needs to be improved upon. ... Tonight was just another indication of the amount work thats necessary on the defensive side of (the game) and the compete side of it and 1-on-1 battles side of it. "Really if we demonstrated the will that was out there in the third period for 60 minutes that was what was required. That was my message." Jordan Caron and Tyler Seguin each had two-goal performances as the Bruins beat Toronto for the fifth time this season. Theyve outscored their Northeast Division rival 28-10 in the process. Carlyle had noted earlier in the day that Boston "embarrassed" the Leafs in the previous four meetings. On that front, he was able to claim a small amount of progress. "We had lots of positives in the hockey game," said Carlyle. "Any time you score four goals you should feel good about your offensive side of it. But defence wins at this time of year." Chris Kelly also had a goal for Boston (39-23-3), which halted a two-game losing slide. Tim Thomas stopped 25 shots and picked up the victory. "We worked hard tonight," said Thomas. It was a claim the Leafs could make as well -- in the first and third periods, anyway. Carl Gunnarsson, John-Michael Liles, Phil Kessel and Mikhail Grabovski scored for Toronto (30-29-7). A major point of emphasis from Carlyle and new assistant Dave Farrish has been trying to get the Leafs to play a more conservative defensive game. However, there wasnt any sign of that in an entertaining, wide-open affair. Jonas Gustavsson stood very little chance in the Toronto net as Boston score all but one of its goals from the edge of his crease. The other, Seguins second of the night, came on a beautiful one-timer from the right circle. "If you look where the goals were scored from, those werent tough enough areas from a defending standpoint for our hockey club," said Carlyle. "I think that we hung the goaltender out to dry in too many situations." The Leafs played more than half the game with a short bench after losing forwards Joffrey Lupul and Colby Armstrong early in the second period. Lupul suffered what the team called an upper body injury after taking a check from David Krejci while Armstrong was bloodied in a fight by Dennis Seidenberg. Neither is expected to play when the Leafs visit Pittsburgh on Wednesday night. The second period offered a glimpse of the tougher brand of hockey the Leafs are expected to play under Carlyle with bodies flying everywhere and three fights. "To me, thats the way the games supposed to be played," said Carlyle. "Its supposed to be aggressive, its supposed to be hard-hitting. If the fighting does occur, then so be it." The middle frame also cost the Leafs the game. Boston scored four goals -- with one set coming 41 seconds apart and the other 35 seconds apart -- as the Leafs slipped into some of their old habits. "Weve got to tighten it up defensively," said forward Tim Connolly. "I like the system in place (from Carlyle). Obviously, his record in the league shows that the system works, so weve just got to execute." Toronto gamely tried to fight back after entering the third period down 5-3. Grabovski narrowed the deficit with a nice breakaway goal, one of 12 shots directed at Thomas in the final frame. But it was the only one that beat him. As a result, the Leafs dropped their sixth straight game at Air Canada Centre. Just one more thing for Carlyle to focus on. "Were working to get used to the style that he wants to play and the system," said Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf. "I think as a group weve grasped it pretty good in a very short time, the little subtle changes that we have made, and were going to have to keep working at it." Notes:@ Boston hasnt won consecutive games since Jan. 10th and 12th ... The Leafs scratched Joey Crabb, Mike Brown and Cody Franson ... Lane MacDermid, son of former NHL Paul MacDermid, played his second career NHL game for Boston ... Grabovski signed a US$27.5-million, five-year contract extension earlier in the day ... Announced attendance was 19,684. Comprar Camisetas Futbol Baratas .ca. Hi Kerry, Everyone does it, everyone knows it happens but what can referees to stop the delaying tactics used by teams after an icing call? In the first period between Vancouver and Buffalo on Sunday, Buffalo iced the puck and suddenly Zenon Konopka needed a new stick. http://www.atleticomadridsoccer.es/camiseta-guilherme-siqueira-atletico-madrid.html . -- Lakers forward Pau Gasol has won the J. CHAUX-NEUVE, France -- Alessandro Pittin of Italy earned his first victory in the Nordic combined World Cup on Friday, and Jason Lamy Chappuis of France extended his lead in the overall standings. Pittin was 13th after the ski jump but rallied in the last lap of the 10-kilometre cross country to complete the race in 22 minutes 29.6 seconds. The 221-year-old Italian was runner-up last month in Lillehammer, Norway, and Seefeld, Austria. http://www.atleticomadridsoccer.es/camiseta-diego-godin-atletico-madrid.html. Lamy Chappuis led after the jumps and finished second, 4.4 seconds behind Pittin, to increase his overall lead. Fabian Riessle of Germany took third. Two more Nordic combined events in Chaux-Neuve are scheduled for this weekend.
