The Leafs are on a three game win streak, they have points in their last four, everyone should be feeling fine. Two goaltenders who both seem capable of handling a 1A workload, secondary scoring no longer an issue, and for the most part, defensive pairings that actually make sense. Life is pretty, pretty good.

Enter the Penguins. The Pens sit a top of their division, albeit the worst division in hockey, but have been on cruise control this year thanks to the leadership of Evgeni Malkin. They've been enjoying the goaltending you get from Marc-Andre Fleury when games aren't a best of seven and Patric Hornqvist has stepped nicely in James Neal's "easiest job in hockey" role nicely.

Tonight the Leafs face the best the Metropolitan Division has to offer, or as they'd be known in the Atlantic, a Wild Card bubble team.
