I WAS RIGHT.  I WAS RIGHT!!!   The Leafs dominated the Blues early in the
game with Wendel Clark scoring 2 goals and Andreychuk chipping in a power
play goal, his 11th goal of the playoffs.  Gilmour had 3 points, 1 goal and
2 assists.  Rookie sensation Felix Potvin faces many shots and stops them
all for the shutout.  Pat Burns is now preparing for the Campbell
Conference finals.  The Cup is within reach for my Leafs!!!

I still have trouble believing it! I grew up when the phrases "long-suffering"
and "Toronto fan" (any sport) were synonymous. A dark age in Toronto's history
when with the exception of the "miracle of '78"when they reached the semis
the Leafs were one of the worst teams in hockey not winning or being in a
Stanley Cup final since '68and not getting past the first round except for
'78; the CFL Argonauts had not one a Grey Cup since the late 50s and were
perenially one of the worst teams in the league, and the expansion Blue Jays
were only a few years old and constantly "under construction". Yes, we were
loserville.

Since then the Argos have won several Grey Cups and have usually been one of
the top CFL teams (last year notwithstanding) not that anyone in Toronto seems
to care anymore, the Jays have been a constant contender and won the World
Series last year and now, most remarkably of all the Leafs are BACK!
