Ranking the Toronto Maple Leafs’ Worst Moments During the Randy Carlyle Era

With a golden glow still shining over the Air Canada Centre after Team Canada's Monday triumph at the 2015 World Junior Championship, the Toronto Maple Leafs got down to serious business. On Tuesday morning, head coach Randy Carlyle was dismissed after just less than three years of service, per NHL.com.

Carlyle's tenure wasn't without its high points. He built a regular-season record of 91-78-19 in Toronto and guided the franchise to the postseason for the first time in eight years in 2012-13.

His team could score goals. At the time of his firing, Toronto was the second-highest scoring team in the NHL, averaging 3.18 goals per game, though they ranked 25th in goals allowed with 3.02.

Here's a look at the Leafs' lowest points from Carlyle's tenure.
