TORONTO – The Mike Babcock who steps to the podium fresh off a win over a bad team barely resembles the Mike Babcock who emerges after a tough loss to a good one.
When his Toronto Maple Leafs dismantled a tired .500 Vancouver Canucks squad Saturday, one trying to hang in a lopsided affair without their most dynamic player, Babcock was subdued and curt.
He was complimentary but far from effusive about his roster’s dominance and downplayed his brand-new goalie’s shutout on account of a lack of Grade-A stops.
