Leafs win the battle, but the war is far from decided.
Leafers can cheer all they want. They're still the team that hasn't played a playoff game since the lockout. They came into the game in ninth, and now they sit in 8th. There's lots of hockey left to play, and a Leaf playoff berth is hardly certain.
How did the Leafs get a schedule where we play them back to back every game? Burke must have gotten under Bettman's desk.

is this serious? Personnally, I think Cowen and Carkner are actually dragging our Defense down and I am a huge Cowen fan so no bias. Gonchar has not played his best but it has more to do with the cowen "slump" than anything

Ya, I would really like to see my favorite team win every game, but I will probably have forgotten about this in about 10-15 minutes when I will be on other things.
have a good evening

This. IMO, we should have a top-10 pick if we don't make the playoffs. The standings are close enough that if we collapse, me fight fall behind a few teams. We need to be reminded to be patient.
JOB just earned himself some more time up here. He was heart all over the ice. As was Karlsson. These two tried to win it on their own tonight. Was hoping for Turris to get something going. Michalek needs a wake up call.
Talk about an ASG hangover...I feel partially betrayed after we fans went and Voted 4 of our beloved Sens into it that they have been playing with no heart or emotion these past few games. This needs to wake up in a hurry......
