LEAFS AND PACEMAKERS DON'T MIX

With apologies to the 1980 Cleveland Browns and 1967 Boston Red Sox, it looks like it’s time to anoint the 2010-11 Toronto Maple Leafs the NHL's “Kardiac Kids.” If you walked away early from the games Saturday against Boston and Monday night in Washington, you missed the two best Leafs’ finishes of the season. The fact that they won both games is exciting, but they showed a huge amount of character both times – and that’s something that has been most certainly lacking in a massive number of Leafs’ games this season.

Leafs vs Capital - Ovie Comin'

Yeah the Leafs are a joke now, but just wait until you're a part of this team next year.

Tonight the Leafs travel to Washington for their second of four meetings this season against the Capitals. Waiting for them on the ice will be a Leaf killer in Alexander Ovechkin. In four games last year, the Great 8 potted 4 goals to go along with his 8 helpers. In their previous meeting this year, Alex added another two assists bring up his total to 14 points in his last 5 games against the Leafs. The troubling thing is though, he's not the Alex the Leafs need to most worry about; that would be Alex Semin. Third in the league with 18, Semin is a goal scoring machine in this contract year and is letting all potential shooters that it's going to take mucho deniro to sign him in free agency. His last 4 games agaist the Leafs? 3 goals and 5 assists for 8 points. If the Leafs want to leave DC with two more points than they entered with, they'll need to keep the Alexes in check.

More after the jump cause PPP needed a reminder.

A day before the Maple Leafs’ shootout win over Tim ‘Superman’ Thomas and his Boston Bruins on Saturday night at ACC, assistant general manager Dave Nonis had a little chat about confidence with his players. Returning from injury, forward Colby Armstrong said, "Dave pretty much said that he just believes in our group. I think we were going through a time where it was tough for us. I don't know if it was confidence or what. It wasn't a long talk – pretty much just a little kick in the butt to the boys and also a little confidence boost.”
