Last night the Leafs dropped a game 4-1 to the Montreal Canadiens putting our first playoff meeting with the Habs since 1979 in jeopardy.
A Leafs win would have set the table for the 16th playoff matchup between the teams.
Even worse the Leafs' loss puts their playoff destiny into the hands of the dreaded Ottawa Senators who with a victory in regulation tonight against Boston would send the Leafs to open the playoffs in Beantown against the Bruins.
I'm sure ever Leaf fan dreads that matchup, the Bruins are 3-1 against Toronto this year, but I'm sure that they hate having the Senators in a position to dictate our playoff future.
