Leafs Facing Elimination, Turn ‘Spoilers’ Strech

TORONTO— The Toronto Maple Leafs are not exactly acting like a last-place team in the National Hockey League season windup. The Leafs actually are putting out as though they still had a chance of catching a playoff berth. Mathematically, they have, but logically they don’t.
