Maple Leafs seek consistency in wake of Carlyle firing

TORONTO – Toronto Maple Leafs players believe their top priority now is finding consistency.

That was the message the players delivered following their first practice under interim coaches Peter Horachek and Steve Spott after coach Randy Carlyle was fired Tuesday. Horachek and Spott are expected to run the bench when the Maple Leafs play the Washington Capitals on Wednesday at Air Canada Centre.

"We have to find a way to become more consistent," said defenseman Dion Phaneuf. "Because we have shown we have a group that can play. We have to build that from within. It's up to us as players to build it."

"For the last little bit here that is what it has been about," said right wing and leading scorer Phil Kessel. "We play well for stretches and then we just lose our game. That's disappointing. It's not Randy's fault that we have been playing bad."

Quote of the Day

I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
