Back by popular demand, it's the Maple Leafs Fan Cheering Guide. It got too depressing writing these when every night, nearly every game didn't go the Leafs way and the Leafs lost 9 out of 10. But now, there's a new sheriff in town, Grabbo got extended, and somehow we're only 5pts back of 8th in the East with 2 games in hand. What sucks though? Those two games comes tonight and tomorrow against Boston (oof) and Pittsburgh (fuuuuuuuuuu).
On to the games!
Carolina Hurricanes (+1.7) at Washington Capitals (-0.9)
It's far more important that the Leafs catch and pass Washington that it is if Carolina somehow catches the Leafs. Fortunately for the Buds, Washington is pulling a Toronto at the moment and pissing away their season after having been a bubble team all season long.
Ottawa Senators (+0.2) at Tampa Bay Lightning (+0.2)
I'm calling an audible and telling you to ignore what the numbers say on this game. We're not catching Ottawa, and if Tampa stays hot we might not catch them either. It hurts my innards to say this, but G0 SENS G0!
New York Rangers (+0.2) at New Jersey Devils (-0.2)
Rangers Death Number? 10. Devils? 24. Go Rangers.
Go Winter Classic rivals! and last but not least;
Boston Bruins (-5.9) at Toronto Maple Leafs (+6.9)
SIXTY-NINE DUDE! GO LEAFS GO!
