Leafs 3 Points Back With Game In Hand #winning

leafsI loved last night's Leafs game. An overtime win against the Penguins got me out of my seat, screaming like it was a playoff game. Tonight, when Boyce scored late in the third against the Flyers, I did it again. Throw in a James Reimer game saving stop and it was clear I was hooked.

Here's the current standings. Take it in and meet me after, k?


Those pesky Hurricanes are still 4 points up, and those damn Sabres still have the two games in hand, but the Rangers are falling fast. We're only 3 points back with a game in hand.

At the risk of jinxing it all with this entry, I'm going to come out and say what we're all thinking. We can make the playoffs this season. We're getting great goaltending, playing excellent hockey and earning points. We can do this.

Trust me, there's no jinx.

When we upset the Flyers in the first round, you'll thank me.

Mike, if the Leafs don't make the playoffs, you have to drink Charlie Sheen's urine.

The Leafs won't make the playoffs. They won't. I hope they don't. I hate the Leafs. Habs all the way. Go Habs.

Boon's probably at the same level of talent as most of the players.

thankfully contraction back to 6 teams is farther away than the end of my life, because this city would be insufferable if they ever made the Finals again. 22nd out of 30 teams right now if you're keeping score at home.

You know I agree, I still think Montreal and the Rangers will be two odd teams out, neither one of them are lighting the league on fire, Montreal was below .500 in their last 10, The rangers are struggling to maintain anything. Leafs/Sabres will both make it in and it will b e an interesting first round or two.

No, the Leafs and Sabres won't make it. My Habs are going to be there. They will and they'll go far like last year except this year they're going to win the cup. Go Habs. Ole ole.

As a Leafs fan of course I hope they'll make it ... but it's gonna be tough.

This sucks. I feel like that guy who has everything he touches turn into Skittles.

I want to write about my team, but when I do so, they falter. Argh!

March 5, 2011 @ 9:43 PM


I told you so. You guys have to start listening to me for once. My Habs won. The Leafs lost. See, I told you my Habs are the best, so cheer for a good team. go Habs. Ole ole.

March 6, 2011 @ 8:12 AM


I fucking hate you Mike.

Habs just rolled through the south like General Sherman.
