Why the Leafs will miss the playoffs
When you’re in the midst of a playoff race and looking to avoid the playoffs, you’re going to be looking for the next big thing.
When you look at the schedule for the 2017-18 season, there are two teams that you should be looking to watch closely.
The Chicago Blackhawks and the Boston Bruins, both of whom are already in the final year of their contracts.
Both of those teams have a great opportunity to make it to the postseason and both are looking to take the next step forward in their careers.
But the Leafs are not looking for another shot at the playoffs this season, and the Bruins aren’t looking to be the first team to miss the postseason.
Instead, they want to get back to the playoffs and prove to the rest of the league that they are better than the rest.
The Leafs are hoping that they can make it past the first round of the playoffs with a playoff run, and they are hoping to accomplish that with a combination of wins, losses, and a solid goaltending performance.
The Bruins have had some injuries to their depth that will make it difficult to keep up with them.
They are also looking to make the playoffs for the first time in their history.
They have one of the worst goaltending records in the league, but they are coming off a 5-2 win over the Blackhawks in the Western Conference First Round and will look to build off that performance.
If the Bruins can take the first step toward the playoffs in 2017-2018, they should be able to put the finishing touches on their playoff push this year.
Here are the teams the Leafs should be tracking closely this season: Chicago Blackhawks Chicago Blackhawks is coming off of an impressive 3-1 win against the Nashville Predators in Game 5 of the Western Quarterfinals.
The Blackhawks had a chance to win their first Stanley Cup since 1993, but a goal was allowed and they fell short.
This was a team that needed to get their game up to par with the rest, and that will be the difference in the first two games of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals against the New York Islanders and New Jersey Devils.
After that, it will be a good test for the Blackhawks to prove that they were capable of winning a Stanley Cup.
The Penguins have one more game left in the regular season and will be looking at the Eastern conference semifinals.
The Islanders will be coming off the back of a 2-1 loss to the Ottawa Senators in Game 6 of the Conference Quarterfinal series.
The Pens have a lot of work to do to get to the Eastern semifinals, but it is hard to imagine them losing this game.
The New Jersey Islanders are a playoff team and they will be trying to prove to people that they deserve to be in the postseason again.
The Washington Capitals are the defending Stanley Cup Champions, and this is the last time they play in front of a sold out crowd.
They will be facing a team in a different conference and in a better position to take it to a championship.
They had a fantastic run in the playoffs last year, but will be relying on a solid performance from their defense to get them to the conference finals again.
They’ll need a couple more good performances from their forwards, but if they can come through in Game 3 of the conference semifinals, they have a shot at making it to four straight Stanley Cup Finals.
The Vancouver Canucks have had their ups and downs this season.
They lost two games in a row to the Columbus Blue Jackets in the Conference Semi-finals, but managed to beat them 2-0 in Game 4 of the first series of the Stanley Cup Final.
The next two games will be critical in deciding the Canucks’ fate.
The Columbus Blue Jays were expected to be a playoff contender, but lost in the Eastern Semi-final to the Pittsburgh Penguins.
They went to the first-round of the post-season and lost in Game 7.
They won’t be able, however, to win a Stanley Series for the second straight season, especially if they don’t score in the series.
This is the first season in the modern NHL that they won’t have the Stanley Cups for at least the next four years.
They can still get the job done, but not for a second time in the post season.
The Winnipeg Jets are looking at their next game against the Columbus Red Wings as a chance for them to go back to their winning ways.
The Jets will be fighting for a playoff spot after losing Game 1 of the playoff series.
They looked very good in Game 1, but their goalies had issues throughout the series, and it looked like they might not make the postseason for the fourth straight year.
That will be all the motivation they need to get through the playoffs.
The Boston Bruins are a contender.
They should have won the Stanley Finals in the 2016-17 season.
However, they were swept in the second round by the Detroit Red Wings.
The team looked great for most of the year, and had a great playoff run.
