POSTGAME: Leafs make the Panthers an endangered hockey club

The Leafs hosted the Panthers tonight, with Florida’s playoff hopes dwindling by the day. The Leafs’ hopes on the other hand, have been consistently rising. If you ask Patrick O’Sullivan (you shouldn’t), the Leafs have the goaltending advantage as both teams play their backups, Florida’s being James Reimer, and McElhinney being one of the most…


Matthews Seeking to Break Clark’s Rookie Record

With eight games remaining it seems like a matter of when and not if Auston Matthews will break Clark’s 31-year old record.

The Leafs will play the Red Wings this coming weekend, and then it’s the end of the schedule the following Sunday.

Maple Leafs call up Garret Sparks, Kasperi Kapanen from Marlies

The Toronto Maple Leafs have made two call-ups today; one reasonably expected, and the other not so much, but still deserved. To fill in the roles created by injuries to Nikita Soshnikov, Josh Leivo, Eric Fehr, and Frederik Andersen, the blue and white have called up Kasperi Kapanen and Garret Sparks from the Toronto Marlies.
