Go Leafs Go!

In 2002, the Toronto Maple Leafs were facing the Ottawa Senators in the second game of the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. The Sens won the first game; so game 2 was seen as a must win for the Leafs. I watched every second of that game, hoping that my beloved Leafs would win. That game went to overtime. After one overtime period, the game was still tied, and I turned off the television. Why? Because it was my Easter, and I had to leave for church. I didn’t find out, until I heard on the radio on the way home, that the Leafs had won the game in the third overtime period. May my commitment to God never be questioned. I missed triple overtime! :)

Tonight, the Toronto Maple Leafs play the Montreal Canadiens in a win-or-die game; and of course, I have to go to church for Easter. :)

    You missed a great game. Went well with matzah. I was also hoping that the Leafs would win, since I want my beloved Ottawa Senators to finally take them in a playoff series. ;)

    Hard to cheer for a team that hires Darcy Tucker, Tie Domi and Pat Quinn. Although I want the Isles to lose so that NJ goes in with a win into the playoffs, I wouldn’t be upset if the Isles win this afternoon to eliminate the Leaves. Maybe there’s something about cheering for (or against!?) the Devils on Easter….
