How do you play hard against Wash and Pitts and then fall asleep against Phili?

Ole, Ole, Ole, the Habs will be elimiated in about one hour from now..Ole, Ole, Ole....

Is Toronto Media that bored that they have to report game progress of a game that is irrelevant to Toronto? It's sad when Toronto teams are so sorry they have to cheer for a rival team and Toronto media seems to foster their support.

Hab-nots have ended their fantasy playoff run. C'est la vie?
