If they lose the next 9 though, you may have to change that statement.

Yeah no kidding, I know it's a fluke, but 14 in a row...even if the Habs are terrible this season, they'll still give the old "hehehehehe"if they beat the Leafs.

Just throwing out this random correlation (not causation): the teams we've had the tightest/worst games against so far feature a primary colour of red on their jerseys.

But Flyers, Sharks, Ducks, Kings would be an epic stretch if we win that trip.

I think it was Pat Quinn's first year as coach, it might have been his second, where the Leafs never won more than 3 games in a row, but they also never lost more then 2 in a row.

3-4 so far in this chunk.  A weekend sweep of Boston would go a long way to making this second chunk less crappy.

If they can win two of the next three they will be meeting Babcock's three wins in every five games benchmark through the first quarter of the year.

That would be a pretty significant achievement given how poor that recent stretch was.

Yup, 24 points in 20 games and on pace for just over 98 points.  Although I'd like to see a 100 point season, so they'll have to go on a bit of a run.


How the hell is it that they don't play the Lightning until Jan 2nd?  The first game after the Vegas road trip...that might be......bad.

Unless they win the final 2 games in this chunk, it'll be the worst chunk of the season so far.

Here's  sneak peak at chunk 4, where 8 of 10 games are on the road...

The next chunk of games doesn't look too bad.  They'll be on the road (only two home games here).  They've got to rebound somehow.

So since I've been doing the chunks, this is by far the greatest 3 chunk stretch I've ever had the pleasure to record.  A minimum of 6 wins per chunk so far, this team is just winning games.

Bit of a tall order, but Leafs have to win the next 3 after the break to keep their "6 wins in every chunk" minimum standard.  I can see them beating Arizona and Matthews having a big game against his home town, but the next night might be tough given the back to back/travel and altitude issues in Colorado.  Let's hope they come back from the break rejuvenated.

Matthews was hurt for most of this 'chunk' That explains a lot. Without Matthews they are currently a slightly better than average team. With him, they are top 5 in the league.

3 losses in a row but played well last game.  I feel a win coming next time out.

The last two chunks have been way too colourful for my liking.

7 points for 7 games!  Almost like a movie!

Seriously though, they better thrash the Senators next game for that embarrassing loss last week.  Nothing short of a 6-1 win will suffice.
