The enemies are still NYR, Tampa Bay and Carolina. Those are the teams that currently hold playoff spots.

Yes, very true. And I think it will remain that way down the stretch. Crucial games against NYR must be won.

here's to the Sabres doing to the Leafs what we did to the Bruins!

Hopefully we can also shut their crowd up in theirs tomorrow for the stinger.
It was so beautiful seeing the Leafs crowd shut the Hell up!

I had the pleasure of watching the game in a room full of Leafs fans. They were gloating so much when they were up 4-1 and it was funny to watch the mood drop after the goal to make it 5-4. It really was surreal. I do feel bad for them though. I'd prefer Toronto make it in the playoffs over an American based team.

I watched the whole game, so was fortunate enough to see the comeback. A couple of observations:

-Leafs are the same old, same old. Some different players, same style. I guess they could do ok in the playoffs but something is still missing. It will be difficult for them to make the playoffs now. I don't see it happening, so one less team to worry about for the Habs.

-I don't understand why I keep hearing praise for Paul Maurice this year. He's an average coach at best and showed again last night that he is incapable of influencing the flow of a game.

-I'm not too sure the Sabres will be as great in the post-season as the playoffs. But they sure are fun to watch. This was a textbook comeback proving that in the new NHL, you can overcome a 4-1 deficit without the need for powerplays. Last night, the last three goals by the Sabres were equal strength with less than 11 minutes to go.

The NHL relies a lot on PP for scoring and luckily, we have a team like Buffalo who are exciting and generating chances no matter what the situation is on the ice. I for one hope that they will be very successful in the playoffs and win the the Stanley Cup. Maybe that would show the way for other teams that you can win with an exciting team.

The Sabres are the most entertaining team in hockey right now.

The Sabres are fun to watch, however I wouldn't be too disappointed if they happened to have an early 1st round exit by, say, a team from Quebec if they so happen to squeek into the playoffs.

The Sabres are a fun team to watch, they have youth and speed, and a never say die attitude...coming back from a 4-1 defecit is showing some guff...the Leafs will look back at this as a huge blow to their season...the poor guys at TSN and Sportsnet are probably all going to need to see Dr. Phil for a group rate on their counselling appointments...

You can't be a real Habs fan if you wish to have the Laffs in the playoffs.

I thought Glenn Healy was going to cry at the end. He was just destroyed.

I've been happier to see the leafs lose before, I just can't remember when. The "Toronto Sports Network" is gonna have to go off the air. Seriously I checked the leafs board last night as I was reading this one., there was carnage going on there. The fans wanted everyone out, fire the coach, trade everyone, sign a whole new slate of ufa's, you name it.
on another note, I hope we see a Habs Sabres playoff round. If the Habs can play up to thier abilities it will be an awesome series. Any thouhgts?

Crazy finish. I had just left the Knights / Owen Sound playoff playoff game and went to a Boston Pizza. I figured the Leafs/Sabres had to be over by then.

We looked up at the big screen I assumed they were showing a highlite package. They had repeated the 3rd goal and then the two quick 4th and 5th goals. LOL Then I realized it was actually a live 5 to 4 game. The Leaf fans were so quiet it was actually hard to figure out who was who without looking at their expressions.

Those odd man rushes were devastating

It took 45+ minutes for the Leafs game story to hit the TSN front page after the game. Granted it's an AP wire feed and I'm not sure what's involved time wise (although it's usually on within minutes).

I'd like to think the TSN homers were too busy trying to pull themselves out of their fetal positions to get around to updating the page. I wonder if Healey needed warm milk, cookies and a pacifier before he could sleep?

I noticed that too. It was on the RDS and ESPN sites first.
