It Looks Like The Leafs Now Know Their First Round Opponents.

"The Toronto Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins were caught in a bit off ice mind games recently. Leafs head coach Mike Babcock and Bruins forward Brad Marchand both had some interesting comments regarding the other in anticipation of a possible first round playoff matchup. However, after some of Sunday's results, it looks like Babcock and Marchand will have to put their sly comments on hold. With the Flyers beating the Bruins in OT and the Lightning losing to the Predators, the Bruins now have a 86.5% chance of winning the division. That means the Leafs are pretty much guaranteed to face off against the Lightning in the first round of the playoffs. The Bruins play Tampa on Tuesday, however even if Tampa wins the game, it will only boost the Lightning up to a 30% chance of winning the division. Are you excited for a Leafs vs Lightning first round match up?
