"The offense has been hard to come by of late and it was flat out invisible in St. Paul as they were shutout 2-0 by the Minnesota Wild and Alex Stalock, a goaltender the Maple Leafs once had and discarded.

Former Buffalo Sabre Tyler Enniis scored the only goal of the first period at the 18:06 mark. Ennis received a pass below the goal line from Ryan Suter then came back out to the far side of the net where he beat Frederk Andersen short side with a wrist shot.

After only five shots on goal in the first period, the Maple Leafs only had one shot on goal midway through the second period. They picked things up over the final few minutes to double their total output, but 12 shots on goal through 40 minutes is not going to win many games.

Mikael Granlund doubled the Wild's lead and capped off the scoring just over eight minutes into the third period. Granlund set up camp in front of the net in between four Leafs players and one-timed a feed from Eric Staal over the glove of Andersen.

This was the first time all season the Maple Leafs were shutout. They have now been held to two or fewer goals in five of their last six games. The road trip will conclude tomorrow night when they travel to the Detroit Red Wings and try to avoid a third straight loss.
