Maple Leafs Pregame #54: 5 things to watch for against the Rangers

Welcome to the Hutchinson era. That’s how we roll now. Or maybe it will be the Georgiev era if the two GMs have a heart to heart sometime in the next 24 hours.
Anyways, the Leafs are back to being on the outside looking in thanks to the loss to Florida on Monday, but a win temporary moves them ahead of the Panthers by 1 point (though Florida would have two games at hand) and they’d be tied with the Flyers in points for the final wild card spot (although the Flyers also will have a game at hand.)
The moral of the story is that every game is an important one, and given that the Rangers are clearly on the outside of the playoff picture, this is a most win for the Leafs, regardless of who is in net.
