Maple Leafs Pregame #50: 5 Things to watch against the Preds

The bye week is over. We made it. The All-Star Game is over and we don’t need to talk about it for another year. Another victory for us! Anyways, the Leafs find themselves coming out of the break in Nashville, and finding themselves in 10th place in the Eastern Conference. Honestly, this isn’t as horrific as it looks as it’s entirely possible teams like the Panthers, Blue Jackets, Flyers, and Hurricanes could experience some drop off in the remaining 30 or so games. The Leafs just need to be the best of that group, and under Keefe the Leafs have played better than their current spot in the rankings demonstrates. It was always going to be an uphill climb to the playoffs, but meaningful games are fun.
