Good fight. Embarrassing at first, but an impressive surge at the end got the crowd involved and made a name for themselves. Ultimate the belt wasn't to be theirs, but at least people know they're now a legitimate gamer.

Leafs Left Licking Their Wounds - James Mirtle

Playoff dreams often go to Detroit to die.

The Toronto Maple Leafs’ likely did just that this past weekend, as after landing in Motown on Friday afternoon only three points from the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference and optimistic they could claw closer, Toronto is an overwhelming seven points back with six games to play.


"What are you going to do?" coach Ron Wilson added. "There’s still plenty of time."

Even if Toronto now runs the table, however, the picture is pretty grim.

Sports probability website gives the Leafs only a 0.42-per-cent chance of making the playoffs, with that figure rising to 29 per cent should they win their final six games in regulation.

I'd make a Star Wars reference here about why you should never tell me the odds but Mirtle, aka C3PO, has it right here. Time for Burke to plug in the coordinates of a playoff team into the navacomputer this off season and finally come out with a working solution. More links after the jump.
