[Thurs LL] Win Out West, Drop Two In Conference

Points against the tough opponents losses against the easy ones: that's how you know it's a Toronto Maple Leafs playoff run.

There's something very Leaf-y about getting two wins against strong western conference opponents, then dropping both games of a back to back against divisional rivals who are both playoff competition. It didn't do wonderful things for the Leafs' playoff chances, as they can now by passed by Columbus and Detroit should those teams win out their games in hand.
