Toronto made a lot of slacker errors tonight and as much as it seems that the Habs played good, the Leafs played just terrible in the 2nd period. So, if the Habs play the Leafs, I'm sure they won't make the same sloppy mistakes.

On the other side, if the Habs wanted to play the Leafs, the Montreal win now means they might get to play the Senators, and the Senators aren't that easy especially since Karlsson may be back. That might just be a tougher match up than playing Toronto. It also drops a couple of places in the 2013 draft. Is the win worth it?
yes. you play to win.

If the Habs can't match the leafs in the playoffs it's their own fault. I don't think Therrien will let that happen. If we play Ottawa, AGAIN, we are not intimidated.

Habs playing their best are as good as the standings show them to be.

edit: nice try though
