Considering their place in the standings and what might be required to eke into the postseason, the Toronto Maple Leafs have reached a stage where unreasonable swings of emotion will follow every game.

Toronto has a few days off before kick-starting its Western Canadian road trip Tuesday versus the Vancouver Canucks.
