LGD: Back-to-bounce-back

It’s Game Day! Again! The Leafs took a disappointing loss home on Saturday night with a 5-3 decision awarded in favor of the Pittsburgh Penguins, but they’re back at it less than 24 hours later with what should, in theory, be a much easier game. Toronto will skate out at the Little Caesars Arena in…

LGD: testing the waters vs. the Predators

It’s game day in Toronto, and it’s a doozy of a game day at that. The Leafs have been using this season as a bit of a litmus test; they aren’t far enough along in their rebuild to really go all-in on winning, but do want to see if it’s possible to sustain true playoff…

LGD: But where is Marchand, again?

The Toronto Maple Leafs are riding high after sweeping the New York teams – and shutting them both out in the process – but they’ll get a huge test on Saturday evening, facing the surprisingly resilient Boston Bruins on the road at TD Garden.

LGD: The Glass Wall

It’s been a tough January for the Toronto Maple Leafs, with coaching decisions getting called out and even the normally affable and unshakeable Freddie Andersen losing his cool a bit. If there’s a team that’s having an even worse month, though, it’s the Chicago Blackhawks. Despite a weak defense and inconsistent offense, Chicago had been…

The Toronto Maple Leafs are coming off of their league-mandated bye week, boasting fresh legs (for those who didn’t spend their week off doing wild and crazy things on tropical vacations) and a desire to get back out on the ice. The GOAT and Dermott are back up, Andersen is on fire, and the team…

LGD: Sens-ationally inconsistent opponents

In their last game, Toronto dropped the ball in the third period with a quick comeback from the Columbus Blue Jackets. Now, they’ll look to turn things over and end their playing week on a high note, before getting a nice long vacay until January 16th. Luckily, they’ll be facing the bastion of inconsistency in…

It’s road trippin’ season! The Toronto Maple Leafs are on game two of a stretch that will see them play 8 of 9 games on the road, coming off a tough loss to the Philadelphia Flyers in Pennsylvania. Despite that loss, the Leafs are one of the league’s hotter teams this year. They’re inconsistent –…

Final Score: Washington Capitals 4, Toronto Maple Leafs 2 Corsis (courtesy of hockeystats.ca) 1st period Nothing like a nice coast-to-coast goal to wake the team up, eh?

LGD: The return of Optimus Reim

It’s game day! The Toronto Maple Leafs skated away from their Monday night game with a shocking 4-1 final decision against the Arizona Coyotes – in which the ‘Yotes, not the Leafs, came out on top. It snapped a six-game win streak for Toronto, and extended Arizona’s own win streak to three games (which is…
