It all seemed magical as the seconds ticked away. Tank be damned, you want the Toronto Maple Leafs to play their hearts out, and occasionally get rewarded for it. Tonight, it looked like they would, and that they were deserving of the pity points. The tank gods had a different opinion, though, as they brought they brought the game to a nuclear end and created a 4-2 loss to the New York Rangers.

The Leafs haven't been winning too many hockey games of late, and that's pretty swell. They keep going at this pace and one of Matthews, Laine, Puljujarvi, or Chychrun will be a Leaf on draft day and that's a beautiful thing.
The Rangers are a team that can help us reach that goal. They're generally good, they're definitely better than the Leafs in every way, and they still need to jockey for position in their division, so they still have some incentive to try. The biggest motivation for the Leafs should be to showcase themselves well prior to the trade deadline which is now 11 days away.
