The Toronto Maple Leafs are on the brink of an accomplishment the team, and the city, have been waiting nearly 20 years for.
The Buds have a chance to advance to the second round of the playoffs with a win over the Tampa Bay Lightning tonight.
Toronto leads the series 3-2, although the first round matchup against the back-to-back defending Stanley Cup champions has been no easy task.
The Leafs overcame a slow start Tuesday night and a 2-nothing deficit to take Game 5.
Toronto last advanced to the second round of the playoffs following their Game 7 win over the Ottawa Senators in 2004. They lost in the conference semifinals to the Philadelphia Flyers 2-4.
The Leafs haven’t won a Stanley Cup since they ousted the Montreal Canadiens four games to two in 1967.
A loss tonight will see Toronto return back home for Game 7 on Saturday.
