GAME: Toronto Maple Leafs (21-7-6-3) at Florida Panthers (12-16-7-2).TIME: Monday, 7:30 p.m. EST.
The Toronto Maple Leafs don't need a team meeting this time.
After their 16-game point streak came to end Saturday, the Maple Leafs will try to get right back into the win column as they continue a four-game trip against the Florida Panthers.
The Maple Leafs failed to gain a point for the first time in 17 games Saturday, as they lost 3-1 to the New York Islanders.
Toronto, 14-0-1-1 since its last regulation loss Nov. 20 in Edmonton, tied the longest streak of consecutive points in the NHL since the 1999-00 season, when points were first awarded for overtime losses.
"We can't be satisfied with a great run like that and just be average the rest of the way," right wing Owen Nolan said. "We've learned a lot about ourselves. But the past few games we've been sloppy, just trying to win on talent alone, and it caught up to us."
Following that 3-2 loss in Edmonton, the Leafs held a team meeting that many players credited with helping to start an eight-game win streak.
Renberg is expected to miss two more games due to personal reasons and Reichel could be sidelined two weeks with a dislocated shoulder sustained in Friday's 6-5 overtime win against the New York Rangers. Kaberle has missed five games with a shoulder injury.
Leafs captain Mats Sundin had his six-game point streak snapped Saturday. He has eight goals and nine assists in the last 13 games.
Captain Olli Jokinen scored a power-play goal 5:15 into the third period Saturday, leading Florida to a 3-2 victory over visiting Anaheim.
Florida was an NHL-worst 8-21-7-5 at home last season.
"Last year, all the teams wanted to play us here because we couldn't win," Jokinen said. "But now, we're on a roll here."
Jokinen's goal helped improve the Panthers to 10-3-3-1 this season when he records at least one point. Florida is 2-13-4-1 when Jokinen is held without a point.
