yes, we are one of the best eight teams in the east this year. (SIX east teams with positive goal differential and we're one of them. plus, you know, being in 6th place with the season about 2/3 done.)

He was the Leafs' leading scorer in the 1963–64, 1966–67 and 1969–70 seasons, and the team's top goal scorer in 1970–71 and 1972–73. Keon was considered one of the fastest skaters in the NHL, and one of the best defensive forwards of his era. He would usually play against the opposing team's top centre, and developed a reputation for neutralizing some of the league's top scorers. In 1970–71, he scored eight shorthanded goals, setting an NHL record.
2 games against Boston coming up = 2 regulation losses 0 points. they needed this one, and they blew it. In the 2nd and in the shootout. Reimer couldn't give them the big save, and the defense was bad.
