First The Playoffs, Now Home Ice For The Leafs A Possibility

from James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail,

The Montreal Canadiens tailspin couldn’t have come at a better time for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

After a 25-8-5 start, the Habs lost for the fifth time in six games and sixth time in eight on Tuesday night to give Toronto an opening to grab home-ice advantage in Round 1.

Montreal’s latest loss (3-2 to the New Jersey Devils) now means that if the Leafs win out in their final three games, they will be guaranteed to finish in the top four in the East.
