The TV Impact of the Leafs in Series Deciding Games is Massive


Since 2013, Game 7s (or in the case of 2020, a Game 5) in the first round has been a very familiar spot for the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Leafs have faced a variety of teams to determine who’ll move onto the next round in dramatic fashion in the form of Boston, Columbus, and now Montreal. TV-wise, seeing the team in Canada’s largest market is always a draw no matter who the opponent is.
