A recap of last night's Toronto/Vancouver game.

Going into the third period last night, the Toronto Maple Leafs were up 2-1.

 

Unfortunately, a bad penalty changed everything as the Vancouver Canucks scored three unaswered goals to win 4-2.

 

"I thought we had an excellent start to the third period," said Leaf's head coach, Sheldon Keefe at the postgame press conference.

J.T. Miller put Vancouver ahead 3-2 at 9:31.

They still have the most points. But for them to have a successful season, the Leafs need to go to the Stanley Cup, win or lose.
I'm a Rangers fan and I will take a final playoff spot and see what happens.

I agree. The Leafs must do good in the playoffs this year.
