After playing some solid hockey in recent weeks, the Toronto Maple Leafs currently sit in third place in the Atlantic Division with 95 points, and currently have a small chance at second place, along with perhaps an outside shot of even chasing down a division title.

Nevertheless, the Toronto Maple Leafs have a playoff spot 100% sewn up (even if not mathematically clinched at this point) heading into the final weeks of the NHL regular season.

The Leafs offence has been firing on all cylinders with Auston Matthews leading the way after scoring his 60th of the season on Saturday, while the defense has hung in there decently despite encountering some injury woes to the back end. 

And that's putting it politely, since the Leafs were missing three of their six regulars in the last two games they've played.

More importantly, the goaltending situation appeared to have stabilized as both Ilya Samsonov and Joseph Woll have been solid option in the past few weeks in net, making them a potential strong tandem to throw at any opponent heading into the playoffs.

However, despite everything seemingly falling into place for the Blue and White, there are actually still some major concerns for the team going forward as they make their preparations for their playoff journey in the coming weeks.

Here, we will take a look at three particular aspects of the Leafs game that could make fans worry as the end of the season approaches.
