New, comments

Will the Leafs inch closer to that series victory?

Ahhh, how sweet it feels to be up in the series. Saturday was a big win for the Leafs, and Monday was even bigger as the boys in blue are up 2-1 and can make it 3 with another win.

Game recap: Leafs win because Jack Campbell - Pension Plan Puppets
It was a close one and the Leafs starter put on a clinic.

We had our eyes on the likes of Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner to be difference makers, but it’s been William Nylander and Jack Campbell who’ve been stealing the show. Not only that, Pierre Engvall and Alex Kerfoot have found another gear while Wayne Simmonds looks to be on the verge of hitting anyone and everyone.

Now the question is, can they do it again? (Yes).

Who will start as it’s the second half of a back-to-back (Campbell).

And most importantly, how many times will Matthews laugh at the Montreal Canadiens? (The limit does not exist).

Playoff Hockey!

  • Islanders defeat the Penguins in 2OT to take the 3-2 series lead
  • Jets complete the sweep and eliminate the Oilers
