Leafs Postgame: Sens Kanata Catch A Break

Going into tonight, the Leafs' draft hopes were pretty much set. They have too many points to reverse-catch Buffalo, Arizona, or Edmonton. The Devils have pulled out of reach. Columbus, uhh, got somewhat healthy and remembered how to play hockey recently. The only team left to worry about is Carolina, and the fortunes in that scenario could change really fast.

For example, if the Leafs lost in regulation tonight, all they would have needed to lock themselves into 27th is a Hurricanes overtime loss tomorrow. Against Buffalo. But, that's not exactly what happened. The Leafs brought this one to a shootout, and unlike last night, actually won.

Last night on Hockey Night In Canada, Elliotte Friedman threw us all a curveball, reporting that the Boston Bruins might trade Marc Savard to another team, in an effort to get his contract off the books. The thing with Savard is that he doesn't play hockey anymore; concussions suffered as a member of the Bruins have rendered him incapable of intense physical activity, ending his career ahead of schedule.

The Ottawa Senators kept their playoff hopes alive last night in dramatic fashion, with Kyle Turris scoring on a breakaway in overtime to secure a huge two points in the nation's capital.  The Leafs got what you might consider a win of their own last night, albeit in much less exciting fashion.  Falling to the Boston Bruins 2-1 in the shootout, Toronto was able to keep themselves in contention for 4th last in the league heading into the final week of the season.  The games are critical now.  Every single point matters.  Tonight's two teams in the Battle of Ontario may be fighting for two very different things, but the stakes have never been higher.  Tonight, the Sens and Leafs put it all on the line in what is the biggest game of the season for both teams.
