It doesn't mean that it can't happen again. Even with how Toronto is now, they are not worse than what they were when the Sharks last played them and chances are it will be a tight game mainly due to better goaltending. Sure the Sharks are better but we've seen how the Sharks have played against the lesser teams around the league, with or without Burns is not really an excuse, they haven't really skated those kinds of teams out of their building. I wouldn't expect them to against a team that has done well at home like Toronto either.

If anything though, the game could be a slumpbuster for the power play since the Leafs suck at the kill. However, they are plenty capable of making the Sharks pay for taking penalties against them as well so they need to be disciplined.
