Hey guys...

So uh...that Buffalo game got a little out of hand, eh?

Well, we recorded this podcast during that game, and stopped recording an hour before the big incident(s). We still talk about a whole lot of important and funny stuff that you'll love. Breathe it in, because it will probably be the last post that doesn't mention John Scott on this site for a while.

Paul Ranger's creative shootout effort draws slash, laughs

The Maple Leafs and Buffalo Sabres played to a 2-2 draw on Saturday night in exhibition action, with the tiebreaker settled by a shootout that made it to 15 rounds before Jay McClement scored the goal. Of course, all anybody wants to talk about is Paul Ranger's effort, shown above.

We've seen a lot of dazzling moves in the shootout before. It has been around for eight years now, after all, at all levels of the game. I've never seen the "kick-stick" move, nor any variant. The best part of this clip is that Ranger and Randy Carlyle are both seen smirking before the shot, apparently aware of what's going to happen. After 19 shots failed to go in, what could go wrong?

Like....OK.

This jersey design needed to begin in somebody's head as an idea. From there, they needed to draw it up, and after several drafts, present it to at least a small panel of people, you'd assume. Then enough of them agreed it was good-looking enough to represent their team on the ice, and that fans will buy it. A group of folks, after the abomination that the New York Islanders call a third jersey, went "Hey you what screams attitude? Grey!" How is this even a jersey in the National Hockey League?

*sigh*.........so the Leafs are playing Buffalo tonight.

Here is Toronto's lineup for tonight's game:

Bobby Baun on life, cancer, and the Leafs

Leaf legend. Four-time Sanley Cup champion. Cancer survivor.

Hardcore Leafs fans know his name right away. 

Bobby Baun is best remembed for his heroics, courage, and perhaps partial insanity in the 1964 Stanley Cup Final against Detroit. After blocking a shot, Baun was stretchered off the ice during the sixth game of the series, only to return to action later in the game and score the overtime-winner. That goal forced a seventh game which Baun played in and the Leafs won, securing their third consecutive Stanley Cup. It was later revealed that Baun had broken his leg in game six.
