This game will be pretty telling. We'll see how our young guns who have been delivering with no significant pressure to win from a team standpoint (only individual pressure to perform) will react to a game that may have some implications moving into the draft.
I actually think it would be better if Florida won tonight, because then if we can beat them We are only 3 points back of them and 2 back of TB, insted of 1 back of them when they have a game in hand and 4 back of Tampa.. I think we can catch Tampa because of there awful goaltending.
Let's just hope Florida wins in regulation against Tampa. No overtime. It's 4-2 right now. Hard to pick who you want to win that since we're chasing both teams and only 1 point seperates them.
But yeah this game against the Panthers is big if we're going to catch anyone. If we lose it then we might as well kiss it goodbye. I hope we don't pull another letdown game like we did against the Islanders.
If we can just put some wins together in the next few games that group of teams with 68 points might be within reach.
5. If they tie any of those teams the Leafs lose the tie-breaker (wins) and then they are currently losing the head-to-heads as well.
The Florida game is big.
Actually, the Leafs won head to head against the Bolts. Leafs have 2 wins, Bolts have 2 wins, except that the Bolts won both in OT. So Leafs have 6 points, Bolts have 4. As for the Panthers, right now the Leafs lead the head-to-head games 2-1....so it depends on Tuesday.
