The past decade has been one to forget for the Toronto Maple Leafs, but their new batch of rookie superstars has given the team new life.

On Saturday night, the Maple Leafs clinched a playoff berth for the first time since the 2012-13 season, and just the second time since the 2003-04 season.

Considering this was just supposed to be another year of the rebuild for the team, Leaf fans from far and wide were taken by surprise when they saw just how good and consistent their young crop of players are.

With the team clinching their first playoff berth in a few years, you can bet fans were beyond ecstatic once their boys in blue officially locked up that postseason spot.

The Maple Leafs gave their fans a bigger scare than needed, but they got the job done and they’re off to the postseason and that’s really all that matters.
