The Skinny on the Playoff Chase

Not much help on the out-of-town scoreboard as Toronto gets a late power play goal and two empty-netters and defeats Boston 4-2 at the ACC.  The Leafs sweep the season series from the Bruins, with all four wins coming in regulation.

About the only help the Islander got was that the Leafs won it in regulation.

So Toronto moves within one point of Boston and they hold a game-in-hand on the Bruins.  The Isles are three points behind Toronto and four points behind Boston.

The Bruins head home to face Ottawa on Tuesday night.  If the Bruins lose in regulation the Isles will be four points behind Boston and hold two games in hand.

Tampa Bay can pass the Isles on Tuesday night when they host Arizona.  Right now the Isles hold a one point edge on Tampa, with each team having 11 games to play.

The Isles and Leafs are both off  on Tuesday.
