This is it, finally, the last game. After this no more mopey Leafs moping about on the ice to mope up our TVs. Soon it will be Playoffs. Round one of the Stanley Cup finals and two games every single night.  Since the Leafs have 4th in the lottery sealed up we can all come together and focus on beating the Canadiens for the first time this season. Please beat the tonight Maple Leafs, beat the silly so their confidence is destroyed and mayyyybe so Price can't play in the first round so we can really see what this team is made of.

Farewell, Colton Orr

The Maple Leafs have called up Colton Orr for one last game. After playing very few games with the Marlies speculation is he will retire after this season and the Leafs called him up to give him one last game and finish his career as an NHLer.  I was a bit confused about this but no longer have any strong feelings either way. As long as he doesn't interfere with the victory, whatever man, just sit Zach Sill for him.

Here is Orr's reaction to being called up:

Here are some goal highlights from his time in Toronto. And by some I mean every goal he scored as a Leaf:

Goodbye Colton Orr, it's not your fault you were here. And resigned. And played.

Don't look at it as honouring Orr but a celebration that we're free of him

Final Thoughts

It's amazing how through January this season went from middling along, with ups and downs, to "fuck it" by February. It feels like this season has been longer than usual, but it's ending tonight. Some people will boo them off the ice after the game. Others will file slowly out of the ACC with 10 minutes left to get an early train or beat traffic. The Leafs have not beat the Canadiens all season. Please just do it this once. End on a high note.
