The Toronto Maple Leafs Weren’t Always the Losers They Are Now

As the saying goes, you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. The Toronto Maple Leafs did what they do best this post season. They lost in the first round. It wasn’t always this way. Let’s remember the last time they won a series.

The year was 2004. The Toronto Maple Leafs coach, Pat Quinn, had led his team to a regular season record of 45-24-10-3 going into the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

At the time, the format had the top seed in the conference play the eight seed, two faced seven, and three met five, leaving the fourth place Leafs to play the fifth place Ottawa Senators.
