Could Maple Leafs fans ask for a better Christmas gift? Back-to-back wins on back-to-back nights. They also picked up a point in a shootout loss to the L.A. Kings. Five points out of a possible six.
They have solidified a spot inside the top eight in the Eastern Conference heading into the Christmas break. They will still need at least one win and an overtime/shootout loss to guarantee a plus .500 record for the month. So far, they are 4-4-2, not bad considering they have played some tough opponents.
Let’s take a look at their great bounce-back week. Here’s the good, the bad and the ugly of the past week for the Toronto Maple Leafs.
