Just win. Please. The Leafs haven't won in their own building for a long time. Please don't let that change tonight.
Shades of 05-06 are rearing their ugly heads. Janek, Jillson, Paetsch, Fitzpatrick. Now three of our seven defensemen are out just in time for our push. I'm confident that McNabb and Brennan will be alright tonight though. At least it's the Leafs we're playing and not the Penguins like last night, down two more defensemen. Don't get me wrong though, the Leafs can't be taken lightly. Kessel and the rest of their offense can do some damage. Guys like Crabb, Lombardi, MacArthur, etc. always seem to score on us for some reason.
Must win this one. No choices and no excuses against Toronto. They have some dangerous players but no one I don't think even our recalls on defense can't handle. Look for Sekera, Reggie, and Leo to be out there all night long tonight with no Hoff and now no Myers and Weber. I think the fact that Scrivens is starting is a huge plus for us. Miller's always been good against Toronto, so let's hope it continues tonight.
Washington gets Backstrom back from injury tonight, unfortunately for us. We need to pray the Habs can come through. My gut tells me both us and the Caps win tonight, so the standings between us and them won't change tonight. I can only hope we focus on winning our game first, rather than worry about the out-of-town scores, but if Washington loses, whether it be in regulation or OT/SO, that's even better for us. Just play a full 60 minutes and get the two points, that's all I ask.
every time a few key people get injured it effects this teams mental state and they suck.
Don't worry. the Leafs mental state since early February is easily far worse than anything Buffalo can accomplish.
Hope you guys get to enjoy the sarcastic ACC fans tonight. Just score a few quick goals and you'll see some of the most original and negative chants/boos ever. It's been fun to watch the last few games.
