Three days of rest and relaxation in Florida ended abruptly for the Leafs on Wednesday night with a 5-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Will the off effort continue tonight across the state in Sunrise when the Florida Panthers are the opposition?

There may only be two games remaining in the regular-season for the Leafs but there is still enough to play for, including finishing as high in the Eastern Conference standings as possible.

The Leafs, who have had some rough outings the past two weeks, would also like to head into their first playoff action in nine years with some positive momentum and a win over the worst team in the East would be a good place to start.

Join Toronto Sun intern Justin Smith for our live chat at 7:15 p.m. and weigh in with your thoughts and opinions. Leafs beat writers Terry Koshan and Rob Longley will be on hand providing live updates and analysis.
