It was a long, long weekend.
Toronto sank like a stone in the standings while 6 other teams - and nagging fans - wagged their fingers.
My team was only a centimeter away from the dreaded “you’re out of the playoffs, sucka” line.

However - toooot - The Leafs beat FLA last night, 3 - 1, and again sit atop the Eastern Conference in the NHL.
I think they showed a bit more intensity.
Orr’s goal should have been disallowed, I give you that. But did you see Kessel, at the end of a long shift, deke around the FLA defense and bury a slick wrist shot for goal number 3?
A lovely sight it was.
Boston visits on Thursday. Toooot!
It ain’t easy being a Leafs fan.
