Imagine: Toronto Maple Leafs in Eighth Seed of Playoffs
Now that the regular season has come to an end, I thought we would take a trip into imaginary land. I've placed the Leafs in eighth seed and set out an exaggerated playoff quest to the cup!
Now I know this may seem a little tacky, but hey its been along time since we have seen them there. Now the outcome might be a little predictable but please hold in mind, we all share this desperate need to see them in the promise land.
First Series: Toronto vs Washington
With Washington leading the series 2-0, a Game 3 injury to Alex Ovechkin creates a turn of events in the series. Leafs win round one 4-2 at home in front of a sold out crowd at the A.C.C.
Round 2: Toronto vs New Jersey
The rival New Jersey Devils roared into the playoffs with the sensational net minder Martin Brodeur. This was a hard fought series that went the distance.
Sorry Leaf fans, as much as I want to imagine them going to the cup, I can't blow it out of proportion.
Leafs lose a heart breaker in overtime, 2-1. It wasn't anything to be ashamed of, New Jersey ended up winning the Stanley Cup!
