The Toronto Maple Leafs are on an absolute tear.
Having posted a record of 7-1-2 in their last 10 games, the Leafs have positioned themselves phenomenally to make their first playoff appearance since the 2003-04 season.
In fact, with just five more wins, the Leafs can guarantee themselves a spot in the 2013 Stanley Cup playoffs (they would have the regulation and overtime win tiebreaker over the New Jersey Devils if just one of those wins were to come in regulation or OT).
While Monday night's victory over the New York Rangers was clutch, it goes without saying that there are still some incredibly important games left on the Leafs' schedule.
Here's the big three.
