The Wild picked up a 3-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday night with goaltender Devan Dubnyk standing on his head for 37 saves in the victory.

After the game, the Wild tweeted this photo of Mikko Koivu celebrating with Jared Spurgeon and Jason Zucker, and a Toronto fan looking on.

What's going through this fan's head at this moment?

  • "Man, I never liked Koivu."
  • "I wish we had a goalie like Dubnyk."
  • "So this is what a playoff team looks like..."

Despite a rich history – with 13 Stanley Cups – the Maple Leafs have fallen on tougher times and haven't hoisted a the cup since 1967. They've been to the playoffs just once in the last 12 seasons.
