DON'T GLOAT TOO MUCH: RAW CHARGE

Okay.

It's fine.

It's just another hockey game.

Nothing stressful. Nothing too bad.

Hey, the Leafs played a great game on Thursday. It was one of the better games I've seen, losing aside. Come out hard, play the full 60 (or 80, 100, 120, 140) and just win baby.

Over this series the Maple Leafs have won all of the odd numbered games. They've never trailed in the series standings. The star players are all performing. Jack Campbell is the better goalie right now.

Everything is better than any of the playoff series since the first uptick of the rebuild in 2017.

It's possible. It's do-able. It's our time.

Go Leafs Go.
