This was the first year the Barry Melrose Rocks teams all got into the playoffs. The Wild were eliminated, then the Islanders, and now, finally, the Leafs. All of them were first round exists, which was fun while it lasted. I don’t know about the Wild and the Islanders, but this was about the time for the Leafs’ annual “forget how to pay hockey and have the wheels fly off” tradition. However, the Leafs were an OK team that played the hell out of a really good team AND made it to an overtime game 7, which is way better than I thought they would be.
Anyway, I have a special message for Boston:
Go leafs go, forever.
