This will be brief: after a Leaf win at home against the Flames, does your ‘playoff meter’ hopefulness shift at all, or are you resigned to a less than satisfying conclusion to the 2013-’14 NHL season?
I raise this in part because I saw a headline before the Leaf game that suggested the Senators still had wildcard playoff hopes, and they have 78 points. The Leafs now have 82, so if the Senators are breathing, the Leafs must be, too.
Can one win trigger more of the same? And if other teams falter in the days ahead, can the Leafs still make a run and sneak into the spring dance?
No analysis today, just those questions to see if the pilot light is still on in Leafland….
