LGD: The most winnable of games

Earlier this week, NBC Sports’ Adam Gretz put out his weekly power rankings with a fantastic tidbit about the Detroit Red Wings, whom he had listed in dead last as of Monday: “After being systematically dismantled by Nathan MacKinnon and the Colorado Avalanche on Sunday, the Red Wings enter the week having lost 10 games in a…

LGD: Facing down Phil the Thrill

There’s roughly a month of the NHL season left, and plenty of teams are starting to hit that final showdown fatigue. Toronto is no exception. We’ve seen Frederik Andersen’s bid for a Vezina start to pale as the season wears him down a bit (he’s allowed five goals in each of his last two games,…

LGD: Welcome to the Austonless Show

The Toronto Maple Leafs are always down for a good, healthy rivalry matchup. With key playoff-bound points on the line, though, the Leafs couldn’t be facing their division rivals in Boston at a worse time; without Auston Matthews in the lineup, it’s a big blow to their overall level of competition against a team that’s…

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. PLAYOFF PREVIEW??? MAYBE???? THE LEAFS The good news is that Morgan…

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…

LGD: Back at it again

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…

LGD: Matthews goes home

As the Christmas break comes to an end and the season gets back into the swing of things, the Leafs are heading down to the desert for their customary holiday road game against the Arizona Coyotes. The Leafs will be nice and rested; this is their first game back from the holiday break, and they…

LGD: Wildin’ Out

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 –…

Leafs Postgame: Alex Ovechtrick

On the bright side, at least they weren’t shut out by the Montreal Canadiens! 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? The Capitals kicked things off 13 minutes into the first period with an end-to-end…
