NHL Power Ranking - Week 21

This isn't going to be easy. Leafs Nation will likely be on pins and needles right to the last weekend of the season unless goaltending help arrives by next Monday.

TSN - 14th (-1)

No regulation wins in the last six has suddenly put the Leafs' playoff position in peril, and the goaltending carousel has fallen back on Jonas Gustavsson, at least for now, after James Reimer has allowed 18 goals in his last five appearances.

CBS Sports - 15th (-3)

Rough week for the Maple Leafs as they've been outscored 16-3 in their past three losses.

The Hockey New
s - 16th (-1)

At 25:25, Dion Phaneuf averaging more than three minutes more a night than next-most-utilized Leaf (Carl Gunnarsson at 22:11).

Fox Sports - 20th (-4)

It’s back to work on Tuesday for the Leafs defense after deciding to take the last two weeks off. Toronto has allowed four goals per game over its last seven.

ESPN - 21st (-2)

The Leafs are still hanging on to the final playoff berth in the Eastern Conference. But after watching them get spanked by Vancouver on Saturday, it seems it's only a matter of time before they sink once again below the playoff surface.
