Man, I can't believe how much I actually wanted the Leafs to win tonight. I am so pissed the Bruins won...Damn.
It'd be the other way around if I felt like the Leafs could win a cup...I can see the Bruins doing it again though which would piss me off to no end.
I don't know, the Bruins don't seem like the same type of team that won the Cup. I think the Rangers will give them more than they can handle. Either way, with living in Ontario, I would not have been able to tolerate a Leaf series victory.
Something wrong at the core of these Capitals teams over the past few years.
2008: lost against the Flyers in 7, 1st round
2009: lost against the Penguins in 7, 2nd round (they almost lost in the first round after trailing 1-3 against the Rangers )
2010: lost against the Canadiens in 7 after leading 3-1, 1st round
2011: lost again Tampa Bay in 4, 2nd round
2012: lost against the Rangers in 7, 2nd round
2013: lost against the Rangers in 7, 1st round
They have never showed great results when the playoffs come. There is a good chance they might be the "San Jose Sharks" from the Eastern Conference.

No, they haven't, but they were rocking in those final ten minutes. Sometimes that builds momentum, too. I would have rather seen the Leafs oust them. It would have been an upset. And the Leafs would not have gotten much further. Boston has a much better shot. And I do not hate the Leafs as much. I even enjoyed watching them.
