The Toronto Maple Leafs ended their rapid bleed-out on Tuesday night, becoming mathematically eliminated from a potential spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. As you would expect, the fanbase is looking for their excuses. Many have recognized flaws in this team for a while now, and whether you think they're taking the right or wrong approach, have at least given it some thought. Tonight, however, you get the fans who are reaching for the shelves to get the leftover excuses that took them twelve seconds to think up.
One in particular is trending high on the internet; the players don't care; they're too rich.

Once the final puck crossed the line in Columbus, this became a do or die game for the Toronto Maple Leafs. They had no choice. They had to beat the Tampa Bay Lightning. Despite cracks at two different goaltenders, they couldn't get anything into the back of the net, lost 2-0, and are now mathematically eliminated from being able to make the playoffs.

Honestly Morgan, you should just go for it, dude. C'mon.
Pretty sure the odds Tiffany can get Morgan Rielly to go to prom with her are about as good as the odds the Leafs can make playoffs right now. Actually, her odds might be better.
