The Toronto Maple Leafs lost to the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday night.
Given that the Jets are the closest team in the standings to the Toronto Maple Leafs, and given that they have had successful results against the Leafs this year, it might be tempting to think the Jets are on the Leafs level – they aren’t.
The Leafs, despite who actually won or lost the games, have outplayed the Jets in all but one game this season. The Jets goalie, the Leafs power-play, and just all round bad luck (for the Leafs) have factored into the results more than the Leafs actual play.
