TORONTO – SPORTS – The Toronto Maple Leafs are keeping the momentum going with a 5-4 win over the New York Islanders in National Hockey League action on Friday night.

The Leafs have clinched a playoff spot and are working to keep their focus on the win column.

It was a late third-period goal that put the win into the books.

Heading into the season’s home stretch games, Toronto Maple Leafs head coach Mike Babcock is planning to give some of the key players some rest.

“It’s obviously different than if you’re trying to get in on the last night, guys who haven’t played that much lately will get opportunities in the lineup,” stated Babcock.
