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.

Fate is one of the biggest factors in our lives. That said, I’m not a big fan of “what ifs.” Whatever happens, happens. Frankly, we can only take one path. Life just leads us to believe there is more than one trail available. So cruel. And that’s what got me thinking about Darryl Boyce and Nazem Kadri.

Scoring Chances for NHL Game Number 20568
January 02 2011 07:24AM
James Reimer made his first NHL start last night, his previous experience being 14 minutes of relief work against Atlanta where he only saw four shots.
Reimer's start came in Ottawa which is probably a great idea for new Leafs goalies: it'll be a pro-Leafs crowd without the microscopic scrutiny of playing in Toronto.
Reimer played a very technical game last night. He didn't make any sprawling saves because he didn't have to. In that sense he's a very "Allaire" goalie in the vein of J.S. Giguere before he turned 200 and forgot where the top of the crease was. Reimer played big in the net all night and let pucks come to him.

It's the Maple Leafs' new team mission statement! Seriously, any time something isn’t working, it has to be changed. I think anyone between Fort Frances and Peterborough would agree that the Toronto Maple Leafs are not working (double entendre intended). So changes will be made. They have to be. On any hockey team, in any given game, there are 19 moving parts (assuming the back-up goalie doesn’t play). What parts can Brian Burke change? How does he change them? Here are the four biggest things that have to change – fast – if the Leafs are to save this season.
