The 2013–14 Toronto Maple Leafs season was the 97th season for the National Hockey League franchise that was established on November 22, 1917.[2] Due to a realignment that was approved on March 14, 2013 by the NHL's Board of Governors, the Maple Leafs played this season in the eight-team Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference. For the first time since the 1997–98 season, they played every team in the league at least once both home and away. In fact, they played the Canadiens and the Sabres five times each, every other team in their own division four times each, teams in the Metropolitan Division of the Eastern Conference three times each, and every team from the Western Conference twice.

The Maple Leafs played in the NHL Winter Classic against the Detroit Red Wings on January 1, 2014, at Michigan Stadium, the home of the University of Michigan football team. The Leafs won 3–2.

The Leafs were in a playoff position for much of the season but a two-win, 14-loss stretch to close the season caused them to miss the playoffs.
