up in the air...

What a rollercoaster ride being a Leafs fan is! They can delight, surprise, and disgust, often within the course of the same game! The one thing that I can say is that they don't know how to finish and most of the time they are incapable of holding on to a lead. They should have finished the Thrashers on Thursday night and they were up 4-1 on the Pens on Saturday night, but they still needed OT to win the game. And they were so tired-looking last night that they Rangers streamrolled they 7-2! I honestly think that it is going to come down to the last game of the season next Saturday against the Monreal Canadiens, which could be one of the most intense hockey games I ever watch, especially because I will be watching with two HUGE Habs fans (who are also a 2 of my close friends, though we'll see how long THAT lasts!). Are they playoff bound or not? I can answer either way with any confidence, to be honest. I just don't know how it is all going to play out over the next week. As it stands right now, the Habs are one point up on the Leafs in eighth place and they each have 3 games left to play. It's going to be intense!

Simple... if the Leafs win out they are in. Can't get better than that. Well, I guess having clinched the playoffs at this point would be better.

Ah well, the Leafs have struggled as usual this yeare but are still in control of their own destiny. Win the next three, and you can sip from the postseason $$ success.
