Leafs vs Thrashers – There Will Be Goals

(The aftermath of the Thrashser Guardian’s fight with the Maple Leaf Guardian) Someone dumb once said "Goaltending in overrated." However tonight, he couldn’t be anymore correct. The Thrashers and Maple Leafs have met twice before this season and scored a combined 21 goals. The first game was a 6-3 win for the team from Hotlanta…

Leafs vs Panthers – Should We Still Fear Tuesday Nights?

Tuesday night game? Check. At the ACC? Check. Against a South East opponent? Check. Leafs guranteed to lose tonight? …………… Had this been last season, that last question would have most certainly gotten a check but the numbers after 49 games this year suggest that Tuesday is just another day of the week and no…

Leafs vs Ducks – We’re the Favorites? Seriously?

I’m not a gambler. I’ve been to Vegas, but never sat down at a table or put a dime into a slot machine. I watch a lot of sports, but have never placed a bet on a game ever. Just not something I’m interested in doing. Now that doesn’t mean that I don’t understand sports…

Leafs vs Rangers – From The Pit That Is MSG

Ever been to Madison Square Garden’s? For all the talk of it being sport’s most hallowed grounds, the "World’s Greatest Arena", etc…. boy is it ever a giant pit. It’s easily the worst NHL arena I’ve ever been to, and I’ve seen games at Joe Louis and the Nassau Coliseum. The entrances and exits are…

Leafs vs Coyotes – We’re on a Roll!

  This is a representative gif of the road leading to Jobing.com Arena for the 40 Coyotes home games this year in which they don’t play the Maple Leafs. To say that the Coyotes are having problems filling their 17,534 seats is an understatement. But that problem will take a one night hiatus today because…

Leafs vs Sharks – Who Plays the Role of Slumpbuster?

There are two big losing streaks at stake in tonight’s game. San Jose has lost their last 4 games and currently sit in 11th place in the West. Yeah, that’s right, the perennial President’s Cup challenging San Jose Sharks are at the moment out of the playoff picture. My how the mighty have fallen. The…

Leafs vs Kings – A Farewell to Reimer

James Reimer will suit up tonight in LA for the Leafs and will be sent back to Marlies as soon as Giggy’s ready. That sad news came courtesy of AM640’s Marlies beat writer Kyle Cicerella this morning on Twitter. Ron Wilson had this to add as well, “This week, he’ll probably have to go back…

Leafs vs Thrashers – Win One For the Reimer

Last time the Thrasher and Leafs shared the ice, Atlanta hung 6 on Gustavsson forcing Wilson to pull him and give James Reimer his first taste of NHL ice. Reimer stopped all 14 shots he faced in the 3rd, and left us all hoping he’d get the next start. He didn’t as Gustavsson got the next…

Leafs vs Blues – The Return of Mr. Glass

The St. Louis Blues love playing in Toronto. In their last 10 games playing there, St. Louis has a record of 8-0-2. Ho boy. That’s some bad juju tonight for the Leafs, something they’ve had too much of this season. Added to the bad vibes, it’s the first time former Leafs Alex Steen and Carlo…

Leafs vs Bruins – I’m Watching the WJC

Let’s be honest here. The Bruins are in town. Phil Kessel will be invisible. Boring hockey will be played. Colton Orr will fight either Milan Lucic or Nathan Horton. No more than 4 goals total will be scored. I hate watching game when the Leafs play the Bruins.

Leafs vs Hurricanes – Game #2 of Losers Bracket Week

Whereas the week prior was West Coast Waffle Week, let this upcoming stretch of games be known as Loser Bracket Week. Including the win over the league worst New Jersey Devils in front of a crowd of dozens on Sunday, the Leafs have four straight games against teams currently out of the playoffs picture. New Jersey,…
