Wondering what you guys think about the urgency of tonight's game...or if it's really no reason to panic if the Leafs lose. IMO, I think it's a pretty crucial game for a few reasons;
1. It's always a big game vs. the Habs, but with the playoff and division positioning, it's pretty important to gt those two points
2. They have to stop the bleeding. Right now I'd say it's a stubborn cut...but another 1-2 loses in a row, and it's an infected open wound.
3. Confidence. I think this ties into the above, but this team, and Reimer in particular, needs a boost of bravado as they head into the final 10 games.
They've got some tough games coming up with Detroit (always a battle), Philly, St. Louis, and Boston...they've got to get these two points to maintain a soft playoff cushion.
