LGD: Big and Bad

View image | gettyimages.com Leo Komarov and Jonathan Bernier should make their return to the lineup tonight as the Leafs continue this nightmare of a road trip into Boston.  It’ll be the third time the teams meet this season, after splitting the previous two outings. The Leafs were embarrassed at home in October before dumping the Bruins in November, the latter…


TCGD: More like American’t

Today is the round robin match that everyone has been waiting for. Team Canada vs. Team Our Parents Immigrated from Canada. As a child of the 80s it seems odd to consider the US as Canada’s chief hockey rival, but I can no longer trap myself in 1987 and continue to believe that the Russians…


#mycolumn: december 30

Hey guys welcome to my column, the only column that is mine. Normally I post on Mondays, but yesterday was a busy day on the site and I want lots of attention for my columns so I am posting it today. Bask in it please. This is also my first column in a few weeks….

Reinhart Shines, Canada Drops Finland 4-1

View image | gettyimages.com It would appear to be a one-sided victory when you look at the scoreboard, but Team Canada’s 4-1 win over Team Finland was close, hard fought one. Finland, desperate to avoid dropping three straight games to open the tournament, kept the game close until late in the third period, but ultimately couldn’t contain…


this game is the carlyle-era leafs in a nutshell. winning despite being outplayed like crazy, and then giving up the lead. — bobby eggnog cappuci (@bobbycappucino) December 30, 2014 For this postgame, you are going to see me quote myself. That’s pretty self-involved, but my birthday was yesterday so leave me alone. Yes I am…

TCGD – Canada Looks to Stay Perfect

View image | gettyimages.com Team Canada is off to an excellent, albeit expected start at this year’s World Juniors tournament, winning their first two games with ease. That being said, anything short of a regulation win tonight could put Canada in danger of being leapfrogged by Team USA in the Group A standings. 


James Reimer versus the World

View image | gettyimages.com It’s been a topic of conversation since Dave Nonis made the trade for Jonathan Bernier in 2013 after the Leafs’ collapse to the Bruins: What did James Reimer do to deserve this?

LGD – It’s Happening

View image | gettyimages.com The Leafs were up 4-2 against the Florida Panthers heading into the third last night and ended up losing 6-4, outshot 35-17.  It’s a good thing they don’t have to play the next night against the second-best team in the East or anything.


Marlies Sweep 3-in-3 Weekend

Surviving a three-in-three is hard, especially when the travel day is in the middle. For the Toronto Marlies, this was the scenario they had to power through this weekend; a game at Ricoh on Friday, a game in Rochester yesterday, and a final one on home ice today. Thankfully for them, the Adirondack flames were…


Leafs Postgame – Leafs Can’t Handle Wildcat Offence

View image | gettyimages.com Earlier today in the pregame post, I talked about how Florida wasn’t that dangerous a team. Heading into tonight’s matchup against the Leafs, the Panthers had scored the second fewest goals in the NHL, and were just slightly above average in preventing goals against. They should have been a team the Leafs…
