Columbus looked kinda stupid for being a buyer at the trade deadline and not peddling their pending free agents for whatever they could get.

Not so stupid now.

A lot of droopiness and mopiness and all-around expecting-the-worst in Leafsland these days.

Gotta admit, I am right in there with that. I don't see it. I don't see this team exerting its will on anyone.

But I guess they have gotten this far - and Pinnacle has the current series odds at Bruins -135 - which is not as bad as it feels to me. That's coinflippish.

So okay, let's do it and whatnot.

This one is tight. Leafs looking good but no one able to break through yet.

Bruins have benefited from a couple of cheeseball penalties but Leafs have been able to kill 'em off.

Hopefully the refs give us one back at some point.

The powers-that-be kinda did give us one back - bigtime. Leafs first goal - which was challenged for goalie interference ---> I felt it was a pretty legit challenge. I would not have felt robbed if they said no goal.

But nope ---> goal stands! So thanks!

But then the Bruins only goal was offside so whatever.

We got the win!

Man on man this sure would be a good year to figure out how to advance in the playoffs.

Shit looks wide open. Upsets all up the wazoo.
