Tonight’s game is huge.  Not just for the obvious difference of a series tied at 2-2 versus being up 3-1 but also because Columbus is already resting and waiting.

Playing another 4 hard games before moving on doesn’t sound good.

If the Leafs advance the more time off between series' the better, particularly since Gardiner and Dermott are still aching.

If we advance I thought we got NYI no?  Washington would get Columbus as the weaker seed if they beat Carolina.  We'd get Carolina if Carolina won. 

edit.  Nevermind just saw the bracket system.  We would get Columbus.

I won't even care what happens in the next round if they win this series.

Leafs were up 2-1 against Caps 2 years ago and couldn't close it out. 
No one asked Zee. FYI, we haven't been to the second round in 15 years.

I don't know what to expect. I hope the top two lines hold up and we get meaningful contributions from 3 and 4. The short shift thing really seems to be working. Although our best is playing a lot, the shifts have been short and explosive.

Go Leafs Go!!!

Winning this series would be a huge step forward for the young players, that's for sure.

It's not denial...I'm just very selective about the reality I accept.

To me if we get past the first round not winning the Cup, or at least not getting to the Finals, will be a pretty big disappointment. Tampa and Boston were the only teams that I felt were ahead of us.

Making it to round 2 was what I hoped for prior to the season, so if they meet that, I'll be happy. Anything that happens after that would be a bonus for me.

Their maturation as a team will be solidified if they come out with a desperate effort knowing  Boston will press and how much better 3 - 1 is than 2 - 2.  I hope it isn't like Game 2 all over again.  Officiating will once again play a role, I think.

Let's start the countdown then, 14 more wins. June 8 will be a glorious day for a parade. I will be there.

It gets my hopes up though! And the higher they are, the more at risk my feelings are. Unless I just drink till I can't feel feelings anymore...

Okay carry on.
