Preseason Postgame: Last one before showtime!

Back at Ricoh to wrap up the preseason, the Leafs were unable to extend their 5-game winning streak as the Leafs Lite fell in a shootout to the Red Wings Lite. #Leafs fall in the shootout to Red Wings, 3-2. Wrap up preseason with 5-2-1 record. — Kristen Shilton (@kristen_shilton) October 1, 2017 In case…

LGD: Leafs try for a second win against the Wings

After last nights strong win against the Detroit Red Wings at Little Caesars Arena (that actually hurts to type), the Leafs return to Toronto to take on those Wings a second time. This trend of home-and-away back-to-back preseason games has lent itself to a particular trend: 1st team, 1st night; 2nd team, 2nd night. Lineups…

Preseason Postgame: Leafs Win 5th in a Row in First Game at LCA

While it’s still just the preseason, the Leafs were getting their first taste of the new Little Caesar’s Arena in Detroit. It’s ironically named, because just like the pizza, the Red Wings are bland, boring, and make you want to throw up when all is said and done. Anyway, here’s game seven of eight for…

TLNRT: Is everything settled yet?

It’s Roundtable Friday, and since it’ll be the last one before the regular season starts, the question to our writers is simple: As training camp and the exhibition schedule comes to a close this weekend, right now is there really anything left to be determined for this lineup? Jon Steitzer If you take a look…

LGD: Are They Ever Going to Cut Someone?

It’s another Leafs preseason game. I think they’ve played one hundred of these so far. The only solace I can take in this month is that there was no World Cup of Hockey, and every year without one of those is a glorious time to be alive. The Leafs website tells me that they are…

Fatherhood is a blessing

I was 27 years old. I was in my second semester of the Radio & Television Arts Program at NAIT. It was a Friday evening and my good friend Jeff and I had gone to the Oilers preseason game, and then out on the town for some fun. We met up with our regular crew…

What the Leafs Pairings Could Look Like This Season

Last week, I looked into what the Leafs forward lines could, or should, look like this season, based on what we’ve seen so far in the season, what we saw last season, and on the quality of the players in the lineup. Now, let’s take a look at the defense, and see how they will…

Morning After Postgame: montrealol

Oh, what a night. Did you have fun? I know I did! It was a night so splendid, none of the TLN staff were available to write the postgame! So h0ckeyfan *known on twitter dot com as at h0ckeyfan34* stepped in to make the debut. Except he kinda crashed on his couch last night and…

Wallpaper Wednesday: William Nylander Edition

It’s probably no secret how we feel about William Nylander at TLN: We think he is a wonderful, talented, beautiful boy with really spectacular hair who brings us joy on a day-to-day basis. Also, he maybe should have been drafted higher than eighth overall, but we are not complaining because we like him as a…
