I thoroughly enjoyed reading through this thread with hindsight of the result.

I was going to quote some of the early comments for the lols, but actually all it shows is the fun and emotion of following a sports team.
I Saw Jay McClement Score.

Super happy I shut the TV off after the 2nd period and went to bed.

He's never scored two goals in a playoff game that I can rememember: Not against Tampa, not against Montreal, not against Boston. And to do it entirely on-demand tonight because it became do-or-die... is that the killer instinct we've all been waiting for?

I suppose we'll find out on Thursday once and for all; it's also worth mentioning that excluding G2 (which was already well out of reach by period 2) Matthews at 5v5 has allowed only a single goal-against all series.

He scored two in Game 1 of the series against Tampa last season.

I've never turned a game off except maybe a few minutes left in a blowout. Sucker for punishment maybe but I always have hope they can come back.

Very rare occurrence for me but we have a nasty flu/cold bug going through the house and couldn't keep my eyes open any longer.

I totally went to bed with 12 mins to go in the third.

Seriously.

Woke up to some texts from friends.  F me.

I stopped watching in the 2nd intermission. Roughly saw the comeback happening through social media but decided I needed to tough it out and accept the team was playing better simply because I wasn't watching. In OT I recreated the exact conditions I watched the last overtime in and the Leafs came through. So, you're welcome all.

Same for me, I've had this wicked cough I can't shake and it keeps me up at night.  Slowly getting better but I'm in rough energy shape at night.

Is hilarious that  fans have superstitions too. I wear the same Leafs hoodie until they lose a game and I don't shave the beard until the Leafs are out. I start it at the beginning of the season. This year though, I trimmed it up after New Year's!

I almost called it a night after the 2nd period. Figured I'd see how the team started the 3rd, just in case there was enough push back for it to be entertaining. Glad I did.

And here I thought they were winning because I wore my Marner jersey for the last 3 games...

Well to make up for my transgression I am blasting Fifty Mission Cap on repeat.

Most enjoyable to scan through the comments and pick out the best ones.

No offense intended to the poster whatsoever!!!!!!
