Morning-after recap: Last night wasn’t the worst

If you missed last night’s game, well. In some ways, you didn’t miss anything — the Leafs ultimately walked away with a shootout loss and one point in the standings. Still, it was a good hockey game. These were two good hockey teams who may play each other in the postseason, fresh off the trade…

Leafs Postgame: Kill shootouts with fire

If the Leafs plan to like, go for it, it’s likely they have to go through Tampa Bay. So like, playoffs are gonna be stressful. The Corsis The Leafs looked good for the first two periods! Eye test more or less matched up from what I saw. The Bolts made a push in the third, but…

LGD: Down With Torts, Etc.

Friends, it’s a good time to be a Leafs fan. Babcock is rolling four scoring lines — okay, fine, three scoring lines and Kasperi Kapanen — and it’s the era of Travis Dermott, who stepped up admirably in the Leafs’ time of need and has managed to stick in the lineup. As the trade deadline…

Morning-after recap: Still thinking about Jake’s stretch pass

HELLO. Last night’s helter-skelter whirlwind of a game is behind us, and I’m honestly still hype about some of those goals. (Mostly the second Willy goal, but I don’t want to get ahead of myself here.) Here’s the goal-by-goal recap of whatever last night was. May we witness more fun like that soon, and may…

Leafs Postgame: What just happened

Before we get started… Wanted to let you know Roman Polak has played 666 games. Anyway, we had ourselves a barn-burner tonight! Not sure that either coach will be thrilled with how fast and loose this game was, but from a fan perspective, this was a damn fun game. One thing probably weighing on the…

LGD: Show Tavares What He’s Missing

After a brief respite from Leafs hockey for the All-Star Break, we’re finally back at it. Tonight the Leafs take on the Islanders, who played (and lost) last night against the Panthers. I’m inclined to be optimistic about this one, folks — especially since the Leafs should be (in theory) rested, refreshed, and ready to…

LGD: Stop the Klingberg

Howdy! It’s Game Day in Dallas, the weather is beautiful, and your Leafs are on the second game of a back-to-back against a surging Stars team with Curtis McElhinney (bless him) in net.

LGD: Please Beat the Sens

HAPPY GAME DAY! THE LEAFS HAVE LOST FOUR STRAIGHT! Now that we’ve addressed that elephant in the room, we can get on with our lives and this preview. Suffice it to say that the Leafs have not been playing their best hockey of late. I think we were maybe hoping that fatigue was getting to…

Morning-after recap: Bring Back the Fun Leafs

That game was, to put it kindly, A SNOOZER. The Leafs were outshot, out-attempted, and somehow still managed to go into the final minute of the game with the lead. Unfortunately, that didn’t last. But hang on, we’re getting ahead of ourselves. Let’s begin with the first (and only Leafs) goal of the game. 1-0…

Leafs Postgame: Over and Dunn With

THE BOYS ARE BACK IN TOWN! And they’re back to driving us up the wall, which is how you know we’re really back. Corsis (via corsica.hockey) The Blues are like, a good hockey team this year. They were good tonight. The Leafs were out-Corsi’d for much of this game, including the back half of the…

Leafs Recall Dermott, Gauthier

As expected, the Toronto Maple Leafs have recalled defenseman Travis Dermott and forward Frederik Gauthier to the big boys’ club. Dermott and Gauthier had been returned to the Marlies during the Leafs’ NHL-mandated bye week, but they’re back, present at practice, and ready to go. .@SportChek Player Alert: @MapleLeafs recall Travis Dermott and Frederik Gauthier…

Morning-after-recap: This game was okay but not great

We’ve thought about this loss, we’ve gotten to sleep on it, and you know what? It wasn’t the worst. The Leafs have won games that felt worse than this one, so we’ll just go ahead and ignore that they’ve lost four of their last five! Here’s all of the scoring from last night, just in…
