07:30 PM at Scotiabank Arena
Watch on: TVAS, SN, BSFL
The Leafs last game was an away game on March 26 against the Nashville Predators, which Toronto won by a score of 3-2. The Leafs have a record of 44-20-9 so far.
The Florida Panthers last played an away game on March 27 against the Ottawa Senators. The Panthers lost by a score of 5-2, and their current league record is 36-31-7.
Was that loss to Ottawa the end of any hope of playoffs? Florida is three points behind Pittsburgh with each team having eight games to go. That’s a tough job to get three more points than the Penguins in so few games.

The Leafs are five points ahead of Tampa with two games in hand. Believing the Lightning can take over second place involves a level of pessimism that is pathological. The Leafs are coasting to the end of the season, and job one is to not get hurt.
