Maple Leafs Pregame #53: 5 Things to watch for against the Panthers

MEANINGFUL HOCKEY ALERT!!!
Okay, every game matters from here on out, but with the Leafs just passing the Panthers over the weekend to grab the third divisional playoff spot (Panthers with two games at hand) this is a golden opportunity for the Leafs to put a little distance between themselves and Florida.
You probably blocked it from your memory, but the last time these two teams met it didn’t go so well for the Leafs, and losing 8-4 again wouldn’t exactly inspire a lot of confidence in the Leafs.
Alas, the Leafs are on a three game winning streak, and hopefully they are looking to ride this hot streak all the way to a clinched playoff spot and the glory beyond.
