    Well, it had an exciting end. That was the one where the Leafs came back from being down 3-0 with 4 minutes left to win.

    Back-to-backs are just unnecessary when there is nothing going on in these building right now except for hockey.

    Even in this unlikely scenario, i wouldn't even be worried about the next game. Leafs can rotate in any or all of Gally , Brooks, Engvall, Sandin if they need some fresh legs and still look good. Habs have nothing

    A B2B? Why not just make it a B2B2B N. if we are going for terrible schedules.​

    Would have made a lot more sense to have us start on Tuesday. Gives us 3 full days off, allows for an extra day break inbetween playoff games instead of the B2B.

    If this is what the schedule is going to look like throughout the playoffs it’s going to be hard as hell on the players, depth will be key

    Playing Game 7 before game 6 seems to be a bit of a bold strategy, but I guess it does save on travel :laugh::sarcasm:

    How does CBS not have someone proofread that?

    It's EXTREMELY important the Canucks and Flames play their EXTREMELY important games and finish their EXTREMELY important season before the UNNECESSARY playoff series begin.

    When you have a commissioner who despises Canada and sees it as little more than a piggy bank to prop up weak American teams, you get situations like this. You think he'd make US teams play back to back key playoff games if the Devils and Sabres still had games left against each other?

    If that B2B decides the series, then we're extremely overrated. Lol.

    That shouldn't be a factor at all.

    Besides

    Both teams in the series have the same situation, it doesn't reward nor punish one team unequally.

    Toronto #5 ranked (77 points) vs Montreal #16 & last ranked team (59 points) is already the biggest mismatch on the board in round #1, with the Leafs in a 56 game season finishing nearly +20 points better than their opposition.

    In fact there are 2 teams NYR and Dallas that finished ahead of Montreal in the standings and don't even qualify for the playoffs.

    If a B2B in this series is the Leafs demise then you're 100% correct.

    What are the odds of that back-to-back culminating with a high stakes game? Happy to be back to a best of seven anyway.

    This post reminds me of that one cat who was always on about the Canadian Branch Plant Division, Patrick O'Thuggo and Ivan Svensky.

    I think he was named ArBe maybe....real different cat.

    In a normal year, starting the playoffs before the regular season ends would be weird and stupid. But this isn't a normal year.

    In this case, cramming our playoff series into a condensed window so that it can fall after these utterly meaningless Canucks/Flames games is weird and stupid.

    Flames and Canucks can play all four games in one day as far as I concern. Two in the morning and two in afternoon. Gary buys lunch for both teams. Boooooooo!!!!
