TORONTO - Will it be another celebration or a wake around the Air Canada Centre tomorrow?

For all the lessons the young Maple Leafs have absorbed about playoffs — taking two of three in Boston, playing through pain (see Dion Phaneuf on Friday) and mastering momentum swings — they’ve not grasped the vital part about winning at home.

In fact, they have picked an awful time to go on a season-high four-game losing streak at the ACC. That includes two regular-season tilts where wins would have avoided the grouchy Bruins altogether for the beatable Habs and then two losses to Boston that leave no wiggle room for another setback.
