Stanley Cup Playoffs Round One: Toronto and Boston
First off there is the rare appearance of the Maple Leafs in post season play, for most Leaf fans April usually meant it was time to check in on the Blue Jays, dust off the BBQ and hope like hell that the Canadiens didn't have much success.
This year however, for at least the first two weeks of May, Leafs fans have a rooting interest in what's on TV.
The Bruins have not reassured their own fan base that this will be a year to reclaim the Stanley Cup, but
there surely must be some hope that the B's can dispatch Toronto in short fashion.
Still, for a team that hasn't been to the dance for a while, one imagines that the Leafs will want to try and stay out as late as possible.
