    The Leafs don't play the Panthers again until March 28th. I will be shocked if by that time they have not clinched their playoff spot and at least 3rd in the Atlantic. Plus maybe by that time the Panthers will have lost any chances they have at either of the two Wild Card positions.

    Yes... Florida will continue on their current pace.

    Hard to know how many points ww finish with. Great statement game vs. Pit... Hopefully we can keep playing like that.

    Florida probably won't lose another game in regulation until they meet Boston for four games.

    Ottawa scores 2 late third period goals and lead 5-3. There is about a couple minutes left.

    That's hockey for you...Florida is scorching hot at home, but can't even get a point against the lowly Senators with 3 mins left in the 3rd...3 back of NJ with 2 games in hand.

    To leapfrog the Leafs the Panthers have to win 7 more games than the Leafs over the last stretch of games. It isn't happening. Not even a little bit. The Leafs would have to go under 500 while the Panthers win out. Not a chance.

    Good. Our magic number continues to shrink.

    Down to 8 for a WC spot and 9 for 3rd in the division.

    I can't believe people think leafs fans overrate and overhype our team. No other fans in the world would have an "are you worried?" thread when looking at a 99.98% chance of making the playoffs

    I was happily surprised to see the Panthers lose in regulation at home and to the Senators considering how their season has gone.

    Yeah, teams make up 12 points in the last 15 games all the time...against well rested teams who play more than half of their remaining games against Buffalo (they definitely won't beat us 3 times), Montreal (2), Detroit and NYI, and also themselves and Jersey, who were also better than.

    My prediction? We go 7-5-1, 102 points, a conservative .577 pace compared to the .630 we've been at all season.

    I get it boys, we're still gun shy due to our 18-wheelers going off cliffs and 4-1 game 7 3rd period leads...but this ain't the same team.

    Odds. I don't care about odds. I wonder what the odds were of us losing Game 7 against Boston with 11 minutes to go and a 3-goal lead.

    I just can't feel comfortable until Florida's chances are completely extinguished. I've seen things.

    Florida will make the playoffs, but they'll be a good 10pts behind the leafs.

    Ya, after tonight, that's probably not happening anymore.

    I didn't expect the Leafs to beat the Pens and I didn't expect Florida to lose to Ottawa.

    Had those two things happened, Florida would have only been 8 points behind us with 2 games in hand, plus one game against us before the end of the season.

    But now that we've got a 12 point lead with only 2 more games played... I doubt they catch us. If they beat us in regulation when we play, they could get close.

    The Leafs don't play the Panthers until March 28th which is still 3 weeks away, so by that time I would think the Leafs would have clinched their playoff spot and locked up 3rd place in the Atlantic. So let's hope that game does not mean anything.

    We shouldn't be worrying about Florida taking the 3rd Divisional spot, but I wouldn't mind them taking the bottom wild card spot. A hot Florida team would give TB more of a challenge in the first round than a stagnating NJ.

    Do you really think it will be your last? If the Leafs lose tomorrow night the bridges will be closed again on Thursday.

    It does not take away from your point that this is indeed a ridiculous thread though.

    It's like he's tempting fate and wants florida to pass us..

    I don't even open this thread because it's such a ridiculous notion that Florida could pass us. Borderline impossible.
