Last week, the Toronto Raptors clinched a playoff spot and appear to be the dark horse team to possibly come out of the Eastern Conference.
Meanwhile, the NHL’s Toronto Maple Leafs, the only tenant at the Air Canada Centre are fighting for their playoff lives.
During Saturday’s game against the Detroit Red Wings, some fans broke out in a “Let’s Go Raptors” chant as noted by ESPN 1500’s John Sharkman which would seem unthinkable a few months ago:
The "Let's Go Raptors" chant has started at the Leafs game. The significance of this is impossible to understate.
