It's April 5th not the 6th. How I know? Because tomorrow is my birthday

The Jets always gives us a headache. They play hard against us and usually gives us issues.

I think I was more confident last night then I'll be Saturday. It's also our last home game of the season.

I don't care that we don't have much of a chance, but it would be nice to finish the season off strong.

No reason why they shouldn't come out flying. A loss Saturday and the little chance we have at the playoffs is gone.

Extra incentive if the BJ's blow it tonight at home.

Hopefully Reimer can get out of the 1st period.

This is what I would do.

Start MacIntyre.
pull him after the first period
Play Reimer

WIN!

I'm trying to think if Reimer has ever won against Winnipeg. (like as Winnipeg, not as Atlanta).

This game just has LET DOWN written all over it.

It would be typical of the Leafs to beat Boston, and then, **** the bed in this game!

I just hope making the playoffs doesn't come down to having to beat Senaturds!

Columbus and Detroit losing tonight would make this game interesting. If both win, it's borderline futile even if they win out.

Columbus looks pretty solid defensively so I don't think they are going to drop many of their remaining games.

Detroit has looked like crap for most the season and have been ridding the coat tails of their call ups making big plays. IMO, Detroit is more likely to falter as they, like the Leafs, look terrible in their own zone and are essentially having everything go right for them right now. Hard to believe that continues the rest of the season but then again who knows, it lasted 70 games for us.

Either way, need Chicago and Buffalo to have a good night to make Saturday interesting.

Reimer facing the Bruins in OT
Then Reimer faces his home town team, the same team that crushed his confidence.

You can't write this good of a story.

It will continue...

Reimer takes over, Leafs go 5-0, make the playoffs. Face Boston in the 1st round. Game goes to game 7 again, Leafs have the 4-1 lead again. Bruins get it to 4-4 to force OT. Leafs win in OT.

JvR/Bozak/Kessel line gets hot again averaging 1-2 goals a game.
Lupul/Kadri get hot providing plenty of secondary scoring
Bolland/Clarkson become super pests force other teams to take penalties
Leafs PP gets on fire, Gardiner/Rielly take it over and the PP carrys us to the finals.

Leafs go on a cinderella run to finals winning the cup.

Well - this is different. Bernier isn't coming back for at least three weeks. So there's no day to day. Reimer, I believe in you. Please don't let me down. ()

If they lose this game, essentially ending our playoffs hopes, does the crowd boo them? It's really the fans last chance to show displeasure.

Let's hope he screws up with the chemistry.

Please... hockey gods... please make it happen. Let them feel some hatred... not just us.

Reimer needs to be told he's not playing, then at some point in the game put him in with little to no warning. That's his secret to success.

Its as if he and the team get psyched out when they know he's playing, but without time to think about it everything is fine.

I swear if Reimer gives up another soft ****ing goal in the first period I will lose my ****.

I understand the team has played like crap infront of him, but Reimer can't give up a soft wrister from the blue line, or a routine save through his 5 hole again. He needs to make a tough save or two and the players will give him a couple goals.

his secret to success was getting consistent starts.

can't expect a goaltender who's as young as reimer to handle the mental role of moving back from a #1 level of work to a spare part and not have it affect his game.

In all honesty - I wonder where our miracle is. I mean, whatever, say what you want - we suck, we're bad, bad management - every team has those issues at times but they hit a homerun sometime.

I just want our miracle. (sniffle), like not just ooh we made the playoffs, but, we hit fire and run and win, or we win the lottery and get a franchise player or we find OUR Datsyuk etc. like just once... please....

Anyone see the Jets vs Ducks game a few days ago? Jets blowing a 4-0 lead . As much as I hate the Ducks, I also hate the Jets. The atmosphere in the MTS Center is unbearable with how obnoxious the fans are. We often complain about the ACC being a library with tons of suits, but the Jets are on the very other end of the scale, too loud and obnoxious.

Interesting scenario that popped up in my head this morning. If the Leafs ride out Reimer the rest of the way, make the playoffs and defeat Boston in the first round, who do you let be the #1 for the future? Reimer or Bernier?
