LOS ANGELES, CA - MARCH 13: Nazem Kadri #43 of the Toronto Maple Leafs prepares to take the ice to warm up prior to the game against the Los Angeles Kings at Staples Center on March 13, 2014 in Los Angeles, California. (Photo by Noah Graham/NHLI via Getty Images)

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?

Are the Leafs still going to make the playoffs?

    I chose the stop whining one but i’ve been whining hard about them. I think they just played a road trip from hell and will start playing better, at least i hope

  • dlb eh

    so far, only a handful have rushed here to take your pole, Alec

  • dlb eh

    our lame assed core players got to 80 points in 70 games on the back of Bodie and good goaltending.
    Bodie has emerged to be our best bottom 6 player this year, and our excellent goaltending is no better than all the other playoffs teams have had.
    we only win when our goalie is good, and the odd game our guys outscore our opponents.
    the good teams have a magic formula that, although it’s the same as what we just described above, is something more that we cannot claim to have.
    we should stay home

    wiski mlclearwater  yep. never want to make excuses but out trip was brutal and last night was back to back (which we have 2 more of). We play some tough teams but there are sooo many winnable games if we get our asses in gear
