Ottawa loses. So Toronto is 5th and will play Montreal if Boston wins tomorrow, or Boston if they lose tomorrow

Brutal game. But, I've loved Kulemin's game tonight. Showing some real snarl to his game, finishing his checks hard and generally playing with a bit more jump in his step.

He has really stepped it up in the KHL playoffs in the past, I could see him doing the same in the NHL. Especially considering he's the longest serving Leaf and this is his first playoffs with the team, could be a chance to really make a statement.

So we're guaranteed 5th, question is who do we play?

I am just glad we face one of Boston or Montreal.

I want to face either because if we really want to be a good team, we can't be afraid of facing Boston...

Just think of this: If the Leafs can beat Boston in the playoffs, they can beat any team in the East because they are the only team that gives the Leafs a lot of trouble.

Nope, we're guaranteed 5th. Game tomorrow will decide who we play.

Did Kadri just double our shot total?

I think we are getting Boston its our destiny, I think they would play a little less the whole heartedly to ensure that too.

False. Montreal has tiebreaker. Bruins need 2 points.

They have learned nothing! These types of losses still continue despite having played bad before.

I really do not want Toronto to score here. I want them to lose bad and stink it up so then can just

WAKE THE **** UP

for the playoffs. I hope they score a shorty on us

He's the most reliable defenceman outside of Phaneuf. However, he isn't capable of playing in a shut down format. Regardless, we're going to be heavily depending on the pairing. The mid pairing is either going to be Liles/ Gardiner or Kostka/ O'Byrne.

That said, in the upcoming playoffs, we're going to have to utilize our forward depth as we normally do. Use our speed to keep the puck in the opposition zone. Colborne isn't doing a bad job in that regard, and may be slotted in between some more offensive players.

Speaking of who we're facing, I think we'd do better against Boston. That team is quite fast and are going to put pressure on our thin blue line. Their defensive core can play a pretty tight game as well while with Boston we can match up physically and speed-wise. As I said before, I don't think Montreal is going to be an easy opponent.
Kessel misses Bozak tonight, against Florida it wasn't noticeable, against a playoff team Bozie knows how to help him out there. Bozie plays Montreal extremely well this year, Kessel seems to be not as noticeable tonight, he's just better when Bozak is his center.
