Well, we haven’t seen this in a while.
For the first time since the 2005-06 season, the Toronto Maple Leafs have won six games in a row. The fact that this streak comes after a four-game losing streak is even more astonishing. So much that Joe Bowen had to make a reach for this stat: The last time the Leafs won six games in a row after at least a three-game losing streak was 1967.
So obviously, just like Patrick Roy said, the Leafs are winning the Stanley Cup this year.
Joking aside, this turnaround has dramatically helped the Leafs playoff hopes this season. From falling out of the wildcard spots to now being tied with the Montreal Canadiens for the third spot in the Atlantic Division. If they can keep this streak going, it’s not out of the question that they could climb back to the top of the Atlantic.
There will be some setbacks but for now the Leafs are riding a hot streak. What is the biggest reason for this dramatic turnaround?
This streak can’t last forever, but it’s been fun watching it so far. Let’s hope it can continue for at least a few more games.
