Since the Maple Leafs took four of a possible six points to start a tough five-game road trip, they have dropped three straight games in regulation to Eastern Conference foes near them in the standings. Barely a week ago, fans were talking about locking up the #2 seed in the Atlantic Division; now, the team has had their playoff chances drop to 65.5% with a massive game looming Saturday against the Montreal Canadiens.
The Leafs have 11 games remaining and probably need to win at least six just to make the playoffs. Opponents ahead of them are distancing themselves from the Leafs while teams behind them are catching up. What do you think, is this team going to snap out of it and make the playoffs, or are they going to continue this tumble and slide right out of a playoff spot, 18-wheeler style?
