or French forward Griezmann to e
TORONTO -- One team on the ice had nothing to lose and nothing to play for. The other team had its playoff hopes on the line and was trying to save its season. By the time the lights went out at Air Canada Centre and on the Toronto Maple Leafs season following a 4-2 loss to the Winnipeg Jets, it was difficult to tell which was which. The Leafs are all but done and would now need a miracle to make the playoffs. Losing the game was one thing, built on ill-timed mistakes and mental lapses. But why the lacklustre Leafs couldnt match the intensity of a team outside the playoff race left goaltender James Reimer and others grasping for answers. "I dont know if I can really give you an explanation for that, for how it appeared," said Reimer, who gave up four goals on 41 shots in losing his sixth straight start. "I know in our heads we wanted it, but maybe it didnt show it there." When it didnt show, fans booed the Leafs off the ice in their final home game of the season. A few threw beer cups. Players could at least understand the frustration after this defeat left them stuck on 84 points, one back in the Eastern Conference wild-card race of the Columbus Blue Jackets, who have five games to play to the Leafs three. By winning Saturday night, the New Jersey Devils also reached 84 points and passed Toronto (38-33-8) because they have four more games left to play. Phil Kessel, who scored his 37th goal of the season 2:45 into the first period to match a career high, didnt want to concede anything about realizing the playoff dream was essentially gone. "You never know," Kessel said. "We still have three games left and were going to play hard. You know, whatever happens, happens here." The Leafs finish their season with three games on the road: Tuesday at the Tampa Bay Lightning, Thursday at the Florida Panthers and Saturday at the Ottawa Senators. But the Jets (35-34-10), who were officially eliminated Thursday with a loss to Pittsburgh, managed to beat Toronto with goals by Bryan Little, Jacob Trouba, Tobias Enstrom and Olli Jokinen. "I thought it was a great effort start to finish," Jets captain Andrew Ladd said. "Offensively we were able to sustain pressure throughout the whole game. Thats just through hard work, being in the right place. ... We can be proud of the effort we put forth tonight." The Jets won despite winger Evander Kane being a healthy scratch. Paul Maurice offered no explanation other to call it a "coachs decision." When asked if he enjoyed playing spoiler against the team that fired him in 2008 after two seasons without a playoff appearance, Maurice offered up a wry smile and the politically correct answer. "No," Maurice said. "You know what, its a lousy job. You dont ever want to play spoiler. Weve talked a lot about being where you are and thats where we were tonight and we gave our best effort." A "solid effort" was something that Leafs centre Tyler Bozak noted was lacking at times Saturday night. At times, he thought the Jets were the harder-working team but didnt understand why. "We shouldve been (the harder working team) the whole game seeing the situation we were in," Bozak said. The situation was already bleak, following a streak of eight straight regulation losses in March. The Leafs figured to need to run the table to give them a realistic shot at the playoffs. Despite Kessels goal, and then Nazem Kadris on the power play at 13:45 of the first when Jets goaltender Ondrej Pavelec mishandled the puck behind the net, Toronto couldnt do much after giving up a goal to Trouba with 3.2 seconds left in the first period. Coach Randy Carlyle couldnt figure out what went wrong in the games final 40 minutes. "We just seemed like we were a flat hockey club from that point," Carlyle said. "We chased the game. And we didnt seem to have any energy as a group. Thats the way I saw it. It seemed like we were chasing the game, the pace of the game. They won more one-on-one battles than we did, thats for sure." Centre Dave Bolland, who played just nine minutes 15 seconds on a sore ankle that Carlyle said got rolled on occasionally, said bluntly that the Leafs "got outworked." Captain Dion Phaneuf didnt want to go that far, pointing instead to "costly mistakes" as the reason for the loss. No matter the explanation, the Leafs showed yet another example of maddening inconsistency in game 79 of a season that started with such promise and took such an inexplicable turn toward disaster last month. "We seem to find ways to always wonder, What the heck is going on? Why? Whats going on there? Why are we reacting in that manner?" Carlyle said. "Thats the frustrating part for us is that when we are able to execute and our work ethic is strong, that were a hockey club that can give teams difficulty and play to a high level. "But our consistency level, it goes from game-to-game and sometimes period to period." Finding a solution to that problem will now more than likely have to wait until next season. To make the playoffs, the Leafs would undoubtedly need to sweep their final three games and hope for the Blue Jackets and Devils to fall apart. They can be eliminated as early as Tuesday. Still, Carlyle and his players have no choice but to get ready to go on the road to face the Lightning. "Weve got to get ourselves ready," he said. "Weve got to re-energize our group because we were a flat group tonight. We were a flat hockey club and we just didnt seem to have any jump that was required." NOTES -- Leafs winger Joffrey Lupul started the game despite being bothered by what the team is calling a lower-body injury. He left in the third when he aggravated it, according to Carlyle. ... Winnipegs Dustin Byfuglien left the game in the second period with an upper-body injury and did not return. ... Legendary Leafs goaltender Johnny Bower was interviewed on the video board and said that a woman who was proposed to minutes earlier wearing his No. 1 jersey was actually his granddaughter. Bower then got a standing ovation following a video tribute. SAN SEBASTIAN, Spain -- Barcelona set up another Copa del Rey final against rival Real Madrid on Wednesday after drawing 1-1 at Real Sociedad to win their two-legged semifinal. Reals Antoine Griezmann scored in the waning moments to cancel out Lionel Messis first-half opener but the Spanish champions still reached the domestic cup final 3-1 overall. Goalkeeper Enaut Zubikarai did his part to keep Sociedad alive at the Anoeta with several key saves but the Basque clubs attack just couldnt respond despite Carlos Vela hitting the crossbar in the 55th. Barcelona, the record 26-time cup champion, faces Madrid three years after losing to its bitter foe 1-0 in extra time in a classic final. Barcelona and Madrid go into the April 19th match having split their six previous meetings in the cup final. "Its a clasico, and theres nothing more to say," Barcelona coach Gerardo Martino said. "We were obliged to reach the final after Real Madrid ensured its place." The hosts constantly pressed Barcelona goalkeeper Jose Manuel Pinto but Messi proved the difference early on. He capped his individual run aat goal in the 27th minute by unleashing a shot between three defenders that Zubikarai got a touch to but couldnt keep from creeping over the line.dddddddddddd Zubikarai was sensational after that as he denied Pedro Rodriguez, with Pinto called on to deny Vela at the other end as Dani Alves arrived to clear the loose ball at the post. Andres Iniestas outstanding second half began with a near-miss just before Vela found the crossbar. Zubikarai made back-to-back stops on Messi and Cesc Fabregas while Griezmann was unlucky on the hour mark after failing to get a shot away on a break. Barcelona had done well to subdue Reals attacks but could only watch as the hosts executed a perfect counter for French forward Griezmann to equalize with three minutes to play. Martino said Xavi Hernandezs second-half substitution was because of a knock that he hoped would not become an injury. "The fact that these players reach so many finals and still value reaching another final is a great thing," said Martino, who has already led Barcelona to the Spanish Supercup during his first season in charge.
