As of the morning of Friday, February 17, the Leafs still have the 8th and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference—with 64 points in 58 games. The bad news is that they have only won one game in the last five (including the 5-0 humiliation at the hands of the Canadiens) and that there are two teams breathing down their necks and three others that still have a chance to catch them.
The Capitals have 61 points and two games in hand on
The Winnipeg Jets just won a game and they now have 60 points in 59 games. Sorry,
but I have to say that I am predicting that the Capitals will turn it on very
soon and not look back at the Jets and Leafs—but I hope not. There are three
other teams that are not quite out of the picture yet, and they are the
Lightning who have 56 points in 57 games, the Islanders who also have 56 points
in 57 games, and the Canadiens who have 56 points in 58 games. Toronto
HOW ARE YOU FEELING? STRESSED!!!
Okay, here is my health advice. Consult your medical doctor and ask him or her if the following treatments would be suitable for you—ha, ha, ha.
The Leafs have been up and down and it has been like a rollercoaster ride. For the rough ride you might want to consider Gravol.
For the tremendous stress you might want to take mega-doses of B-Complex vitamins and extra B-12 to be sure.
Keep plenty of clean towels handy—you know the type I mean—because things are not looking that promising for the Leafs and you want to catch the tears so they don’t burn your skin!
If you plan on forsaking the Gravol, stress vitamins and towels, you might want to consider drinking beer or vodka to get through the ordeal! Don't drink and drive.
