Eddie is the Eagle again

Ed Belfour is doing it. He’s showing “playoff Eddie” and while he hasn’t been spectacular, he’s been playing great, and really playing much better then earlier in the season.Against Montreal it happened. A much needed “Eddie! Eddie! Eddie!” chant, followed by a two good performances against Tampa Bay, and Long Island, including an unfortunate loss to the Islanders, the Leafs have been playing better then they have as of late, they got points in their last 3 games, and have won 2 of the last 3.

This makes me wonder, can Belfour lead the Leafs on a miracle playoff run? Every year has a playoff miracle. Calgary was a team that barely squeezed in in their 81st game, and Kiprusoff played great, they had a questionable trade deadline, and then they beat the Canucks, Red Wings, and Sharks. If the Leafs make the playoffs, Ottawa or Carolina will be the first team they play, and there’s a good chance that if they make the playoffs, and can pull off a miracle run, they’ll (in the same manner as the Flames) take on the three division leaders, Carolina, Ottawa, and New York.

Just some thoughts.
