It's over.

For the Marlies that is. Oh how they had to make everything as difficult as possible for themselves this season! This was a team a win away from not even having to go through the tortuous play-in round but they couldn't get that win, and then when they did they dragged us through the sweetness of an OT win and then gave us the bitter taste of an OT loss. Very Leafs organisation.

Anyway, speaking of making things hard on themselves, the Panthers are doing that, and wouldn't it be nice if they did it again tonight? I know, cheering for the Lightning to win is icky, but think of it as cheering for chaos.

And chaos is how the Leafs will win this round, right?

7:00 p.m. Lightning @ Panthers (Panthers lead series 3-1)
9:30 p.m. Stars @ Golden Knights (Knights lead series 2-1)

Positive thinking here. It's never over until it's over. Let's enjoy another night chatting about anything at all knowing the Leafs are still contenders.
