I think MTL will get underated in this thread, but for the Leafs they're my choice.
- Boston historically has our number the last few years. This year has been much closer though, still not a team I'd relish playing in the first round.
- Washington is on such a tear I don't think anyone would pick to play them, just got hot at the right time.
- Against Montreal Toronto has played its most dominating games this year, so I think its the matchup the Leafs would prefer. Regular season means nothing in the playoffs but I still the matchup I'd have the most confidence in as a bottom 4-seed for the Leafs.
