For the past two games at least, Toronto Maple Leafs head coach Pat Quinn appears to have found his team.
During Toronto's six-game Western road swing reports swirled that Quinn had "lost the team" and players were hoping he'd be fired. It didn't help that the Leafs were 0-2-2-1 before ending the skid with a 5-3 victory at Vancouver.
On the second half of the home-and-home series with the Canucks, the Leafs (9-6-5-2) won 2-1 to solidify their hold on sixth in the Eastern Conference with 25 points, four points behind league-leading Philadelphia.
