Joffrey Lupul: Game 7 loss ‘will haunt me until the day I die’

Joffrey Lupul does not tweet very often. He has tweeted just over 1,100 times, and he hadn’t tweeted since April 23. The playoffs began on April 30. Lupul finally broke his three-week Twitter silence by sending this emotionally-charged message on Tuesday, less than 24 hours after his Toronto Maple Leafs blew a 4-1 3rd-period lead in Game 7 against the Boston Bruins:

Joffrey LupulThe Leafs are believed to be the first team to blow a 4-1 third period lead in Game 7 of a playoff series. They lost 5-4 in overtime, and that was after coming back from down 3-2 in the series.

Lupul’s actually had some crappy luck when it comes to the playoffs. In his second NHL season with the Anaheim Ducks, the team lost to the Edmonton Oilers in the Western Conference finals. The Ducks traded him to Edmonton after the season, and the Ducks went on to win the cup while the Oilers missed the playoffs.

Lupul did not have a point in five of the seven playoff games against Boston.
