The Toronto Maple Leafs are facing elimination Wednesday night in the second round of the NHL playoffs but Hailey and Sue Rumsey haven’t lost hope.

The two die-hard Leafs fans were sporting their team jerseys at 9 a.m. Wednesday in front of the popular “Honk – Go Leafs Go!” sign outside their home on Niagara Stone Road in Virgil.

As they posed for a photo with their chocolate lab Bauer, dozens of passing cars obliged and honked in support of the Leafs.

The team hasn’t made it to the second round of playoffs since 2004, almost 20 years, and fans are hoping they don’t get swept by the Florida Panthers tonight. Game time is 7 p.m.
