Two weeks ago there would have never been a "Who else isn't excited for the playoffs" thread. Kind if ridiculous how everyone just jumps ship at the first sign of a struggle. Playoffs are a whole different story.

Every game that we have lost to the leafs has been because we shot ourselves in the foot. Not because they're a better team than we are. We even outplayed them for most of the game in our most recent outing against them, but goaltending was our downfall. The only time where we played our game against the leafs, using our speed and transition game, while winning puck battles and having solid goaltending, was the game where we beat them 5-2. We are a better team than the leafs, I am confident about that. It is only a matter of getting everyone to play 100%, and that is just what the playoffs do. In the 2009-2010 season, we finished second last in the division and squeaked into the playoffs by one single point. And you all know what happened there. It was all doom and gloom going into the playoffs. Nobody thought we would beat the capitals.

The playoffs are a completely different animal, ladies and gents. Time for everyone to grow a pair, and get ready for Montreal to bring their A game for the playoffs. We've had 2 solid days of practice to iron out the kinks and restart the motor. Am I afraid of the leafs and their two (basically) rookie goalies, and lineup that has barely any playoff experience? No. Not one bit. If we play our game, we will beat them with ease. We will be fine.
