In N-H-L action last night, time has ran out on the Maple Leafs' playoff push. Toronto officially had the door slammed on its late-season run when Buffalo defeated Tampa Bay 4-2.

Meanwhile, Montreal doesn’t have to worry about the math -- they're in the playoffs. The Habs secured a playoff berth last night after a 2-1 overtime victory over the Chicago Blackhawks. Elsewhere, Ottawa defeated Philadelphia 5-2 and Edmonton topped Vancouver for the 2nd time in a row, 2-nothing.
In O-H-L action, the first round of the playoffs concluded last night as the Windsor Spitfires defeated the Erie Otters 5-4 in Game 7. The Spitfires advance to meet the Saginaw Spirit in the O-H-L Western Conference Semifinals. The other Western semifinal begins Thursday night in Owen Sound when the Attack host the Plymouth Whalers.
