Christmas time is coming somewhat sooner for me than the rest of you lot because I'm spending two weeks in Mexico between now and then. Christmas time means it's time to get ready for one thing; respect for a beautiful and age old tradition dating back to the year zero. Speaking of which isn't it a weird coincidence that Jesus was born in the year zero? Someone made a really brave call selling "Year Zero!" calendars and must have been sweating bullets when He didn't show up until December 25th.

How about the Leafs last night? Big comeback win against a good team to take them to 2-0-0 at the start of the Week of Doom. With four points in their past two how do the Leafs stack up if you correct the standings to reflect Toronto's games in hand?

Scoring Chances for NHL Game Number 20397

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.

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.
