09:27 AM ET 04.20 | It didn't take long for the word "panic" to come up around Toronto Maple Leafs headquarters Friday. Only, in every instance, it was following the phrase "it's not time to" -- which is what one would expect after a losing streak as modest as two games. But with the possibility of clinching an NHL playoff spot now onto its fifth day and third game, the Leafs also know they need to be a lot better Saturday against the Ottawa Senators to dissipate some of the tension building around the city. "To start the season, if you said after 44 games we'd be in fifth place in the Eastern Conference, you're going to take that," defenceman Ryan O'Byrne said. "There's no panic. Obviously, we've had a couple games that we haven't played the way we wanted to play, but we're going to get back to work. There's four games left in the season here, and we can get back to playing Toronto Maple Leaf hockey."
