I'm not saying that this losing streak is in the past, but what I will say is that since the last time the Leafs lost a hockey game, about 1.05 million children have been born.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have a big game ahead of them today. If you're on the "keep trying" side of the spectrum, you want this historically bad losing streak to end, and the Oilers are vulnerable. If you're on the "Tank Nation" side of the aisle, a loss puts the Leafs just nine ahead of Edmonton for 29th place with 28 more attempts at failure to go. Either way, this game matters.
