    Last time our favorite team will see these guys until the Eastern Conference Finals in the spring.

    Therefore............................

    I hope we cream those punks.

    Good test for the "who have the Jackets beat crowd". Season series even 1-1.

    It's a Friday night against a good opponent with a near capacity crowd at home. CBJ always seem to miss a chance to delight the fans in this scenario.

    Oh man, the last few meetings between these two have produced very competitive, exciting games - hope the CBJ show up for this one, last night's big win should help.
    I am stoked.

    Gonna be a big crowd. That always seems to intimidate the Jackets.

    We can't win 'em all so why not keep up the sure fire CBJ tradition of stinking up the arena in front of a sell out crowd.

    Leafs come out sluggish. Jackets take early lead. Leafs rally to tie it up and then win the shootout.

    4-3 Leafs (SO)

    Now thats a real test for the boys who were saving energy last night. If Bob can be Bob then anything is possible. Right now Toronto is nearly as likely to win the cup as Tampa according to Vegas.

    Looks like even the SRO tickets have been sold for tonight. Sensing a 4-1 loss.

    I really want this game badly. While I actually like the Leafs a bit, I HATE Leaf fans.

    Come on Jackets

    Toronto is the sleeping giant of awful sports fanbases. Only reason they haven't reached or surpassed Boston levels of obnoxiousness is their teams haven't been good. If the Leafs and Raptors become dynasties, it could destroy the entire stereotype of Canadians being polite and well-mannered.

    Echoing those here. It's a weekend home game against a good opponent. Going to be something like 4-0 or 6-1 Toronto.

    :(

    As a Leaf fan, the Jackets really intimidate me. It does make for an exciting matchup though. Last one of the season, so hopefully both teams destroy their divisions in the playoffs and meet in the ECF ;)

    Don't get the Leaf fan hate. All sports teams have a big group of loud, belligerent fans, Toronto's just access this site more.

    Bob gives up 8, again .

    Hoping the boys didn't spend it all last night while the Leafs had their feet up watching from the Hyatt.

    There will be a big Leaf contingent tonight so clear your throat while in attendance tonight Jacket fans!

    The 28-38-77 line looked very good last night. The top line (9-18-13) was off except for the OT goal, but their play last night was the exception to the norm. The question is will the 28-38-77 combo continue to click? And will Torts be patient enough to truly test it?

    One game doesn't prove anything, but Toronto is a good opportunity for them as Toronto allows teams to skate in space. If that line can sustain production, it'd give us a top 6 oomph we've lacked. And the other middle 6 line of 71-10-91 should be productive with Wennberg having wings to feed while having two guys who can help Duclair on defensive.....I'm hopeful and my fingers are crossed.

    Anderson hasn't had a goal for a while now. Would love to see him on the score sheet as well as the second and third lines. Hopefully that OT winner for PLD gets him back into the rhythm of goal scoring as well.

    But can we chalk up any of the 8 goals to luck?
