James Reimer stopped 49 shots (49!) and Nazem Kadri and Joffrey Lupul iced the game with late goals to give the Leafs a 4-1 win and a playoff berth.
Safe to say, Leafs fans are quite pleased.
Leafs clinch a playoff spot for the first time in about 8 seasons. I haven't felt like this since my kids were born. Go Leafs Go! #TMLTalk— Norm Boucher (@Stormin_Norm) April 20, 2013

Toronto Maple Leafs are in the playoffs. If I didn't have a terrible cold, I'd head to Gretzky's bar and celebrate myself into a coma.— Dave Foley (@DaveSFoley) April 20, 2013
