LGD: Rearview Mirror

Good morning, folks! The Leafs (36-20-5) take on the Florida Panthers (26-24-6) tonight. A few things about this fact: the Panthers are the next best team points-wise in the Atlantic Division. Normally, this would be a fair time to warn everyone that objects in the mirror are closer than they may appear if they happen…

Morning After Recap: Just Win, Baby

Good morning, friends. Last night, the Toronto Maple Leafs hockey club beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 6-3. The same Leafs hockey club was also outshot 57-28, which is very very bad. That’s a whole lot to unpack – and sure, 2 points is 2 points in the end. So let’s have some fun and take…

Post Game: Nazty

pretty crazy your uncle wasn’t right about Kadri in 2011 — The Leafs Nation (@TLNdc) November 7, 2017 On an average night that includes a Nazem Kadri hat trick, that’s all that probably needs to be said. Tonight, however, was not an average night. Despite being outshot 57-28, the Leafs somehow stole a game out…

At Last, The Big Three Are All Big At Once

Folks, it’s been a long time coming. Being a fan of the 2017-18 Toronto Maple Leafs has been a test in patience of a different kind. It’s been a test not in waiting for the team to bottom out and piece together a better team, but rather a test in waiting for the team that’s…

Morning After Recap: Highway Robbery

Good morning! Last night, the Leafs got utterly destroyed possession-wise and on the shot clock by the Nashville Predators, coughing up a 2-0 lead in the process, but managed to squeak out an improbable win in the process. It was a tremendous showing by Frederik Andersen, with a couple of clutch goals by James van…

Post Game: Andersensational

Frederik Andersen has no time for your Corsi charts. (But we low-key should, that was a bad game) The Danish King stole an ugly game for the Leafs tonight, helping them pull to 32-19-5 on the season, good enough for a nice 69 points through 56 games. 1st Period To answer the oft-asked question of “Which…

#Pizzanalysis: If The Leafs Were Pizza Toppings, What Would They Be?

Long time no see, fellow millennials. It’s time for another listicle. I figured it was about time for another dose of #relatable content that will hopefully tide you over on this last afternoon coming out of the All-Star Break. So let’s take a few minutes to talk about pizza. Not only is pizza America’s favorite…

LGD: Avalanche Warning

Good Morning! It sure feels nice to go into a game coming off of a win. The Leafs (26-17-5) will look to make it two in a row tonight when they host the Colorado Avalanche (26-16-3). Shockingly, both teams are sporting pretty similar records this season, though the Leafs seem to have a stranglehold on…

LGD: Flying South

It’s Game Day! It’s been a frustrating stretch for the Leafs (25-17-4), but perhaps a change of scenery will be just what they need. Tonight, the Leafs travel south of the border after a six-game homestand to take on the Philadelphia Flyers (20-16-8). Tonight marks the third and final meeting of the season for the…

Postgame: Back To Back Bozak

It felt like it was going to be one of “those games”, didn’t it? Much to our delight, the Leafs pulled out a 3-2 shootout victory for the second time in as many games, with Tyler Bozak scoring the winning goal in the skills competition after tying things up in regulation. First Period The first…
