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.

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.
