Seeing as the Leafs are petrified of us winning the division (given the matchup implications for them), IF Washington somehow gets a massive lead in their game that seems insurmountable, leafs might get nervous. Granted this applies more to the fans than the team. Goes both ways though, either they are nervous and grip the stick or they play harder.

I'd say same for us (i.e., if we knew we had a chance to clinch the division between the 2nd and 3rd), but it seems every time that we've had that chance, MT cannot fire them up to get the job done. We've had SOOOO many chances, I can't believe it's this close. Then again, I think we all knew this last game would be important, for various reasons. Now we know why.
