Remember that kid in your math class? The one who, in order to pass even the simplest test, had to work and work and work. You could almost see the sweat pouring down his forehead as he tried to solve for x in 17x + 4x2 + 14 = 329. And, if he was really lucky, he got a C+. He’s the Maple Leafs. Without every single piston firing, every player working their tail off, they aren’t going to win.

The St. Louis Blues love playing in Toronto. In their last 10 games playing there, St. Louis has a record of 8-0-2. Ho boy. That's some bad juju tonight for the Leafs, something they've had too much of this season. Added to the bad vibes, it's the first time former Leafs Alex Steen and Carlo Colaiacovo, two former 1st rounders, make their return to the ACC after getting dealt two seasons ago for
Lee Stempniak a 4th and 7th pick in the 2010 NHL Draft.

Three games were played tonight, one in each period. In the first, we saw the Canadian team we had seen throughout the tournament: a powerhouse, offensively capable and much too busy threatening to allow opportunities against. In the second we saw relatively boring hockey, punctuated by the occasional flurry.
Finally, in the third period, we saw either one of the greatest come-from-behind events in tournament history, or one of the greatest collapses.

This is Jordan Eberle scoring one of the most famous goals in the game's history. The timing (perfect) and the degree of difficulty (impossible) add to the appeal of this photo. Tonight in Buffalo, a new chapter will be written.
