On This Day April 26th.

April 26: On this day in 2001, Leaf fans were rapidly becoming more and more excited as the Leafs blanked the New Jersey Devils 2-0 in Game 1 of the 2nd round of the playoffs, the Conference Semi-Finals. It was Curtis Joseph's 3rd shutout and the Leafs 5th straight victory from the start of the post-season. Hopes faded however as the Devils won the next two games in overtime and the series in 7 games. It was the 2nd consecutive year that New Jersey ended Leaf fan dreams of an end to the team's long Cup drought.
