I had to pinch my self at least 10 times to make sure what I was watching was not a dream :)

Utter domination by the leafs and this time the opponent was a team with elite talent. Just lovin' it :D

Go LEAFS GO

Was a good test for the boys tonight.

Passed with flying colours.

looks like the team is working well together. kessel is doing what the great al mighty sluggo said he could never do. make players around him better. solid defensive team work and if you keep scoring like this, the run will be good.

Its amazing how much difference a good coach can make... Can't believe its the same lowly leafs that everybody was writing off for this season. Heck we were ranked 28th in the TSN ranking.

Yeah he is finally distributing the puck and making less selfish plays. This only helps his game in the long run because Goalies always play the shot on Kessel, setting up other players makes him unpredictable.

We still might end up 28th yet. However if they continue playing the way they are now, not a chance that will happen... lets enjoy it while we can, :-)

63 man games lost this season for the Leafs top 3 centers.....

We're ranked 13th now in the TSN rankings.

Let's keep climbing that ladder!

What you have to steal Joe Bowen's punch line now ?
The Leafs are getting their game together nicely and I'm hoping they get even better since next months schedule will be a much tougher one against their top division rivals .
Still they have a couple of impressive wins and a 4 game winning streak to build on and they seemed to have way more confidence and control which is really good . Got to really like it when the fourth line guys chip in on the score board totals .

A true fan sticks by a team regardless of whether they're 1st in the league or 28th. Which I'm sure trueleaffan does! Being realistic and preparing for the worst doesn't make you less of a fan.

Hey that's what I keep saying, :-).

I am just saying that they might end up in 28th, lots of hockey left to be played yet. I gave them kudos by saying if they continue to play the way they are, then they will be ok. I guess by being a fan you have to ignore all other possibilities.
