So the Leafs were 1-1-1 last week, let's see how that affects the races...
Distance from the President's Trophy: 23 pts. (22 behind San Jose, Leafs lose the tiebreak...Leafs have four games in hand). (That seems pretty far to me.)
Distance from the conference lead: 18 pts. (17 behind Washington, Leafs lose the tiebreak...Leafs have two games in hand). (Well at least it's no farther away than last week.)
Distance from the division lead: 13 pts. (12 behind Buffalo, Leafs lose the tiebreak...and Buffalo has a game in hand). (We're gaining on them!)
Distance from the PLAYOFFS!!!1: 11 pts. (10 behind Boston, Leafs lose the tiebreak...Leafs have a game in hand). (One point farther away than last week...)
Distance from getting out of the Taylor Hall sweepstakes: 7 pts. (6 behind St. Louis, Leafs lose the tiebreak...and St. Louis has a game in hand). (We can still get out of here!)
Distance from last place: Uh oh...we're there right now! But we're only 1 point from getting out (and have a game in hand on 29th place Carolina). (This can be done tonight if things fall into place...)
Our current record in "the month that matters" is 3-4-2...come on Leafs, hurry up and play like it's November already ;)
