Former Toronto general manager Bill Watters made a good point on Sunday that the Leafs’ next three games are against teams that finished ahead of the Leafs last year, but currently sit behind them and on the wrong side of the playoff ledger. So it would be something of a statement on the Leafs’ part to get four or more points against the Panthers, Lightning and Sabres before a Saturday night rematch in Ottawa.
