It looks like Jake Gardiner is as good as gone

The Maple Leafs have had a few days to think about their disappointing Game 7 loss to the Boston Bruins that ultimately resulted in the team losing in the first round for the third consecutive year. Today, they cleaned out their lockers and faced questions from the media.


Pointing fingers and laying blame, Babcock goes out with a bang

Another tragedy at the TD Garden

Another tragedy at the TD Garden. An opportunity at a gettable path through to the Stanley Cup final squandered.

LGD: Can we get a Happy Ending?

Folk’s, what’s really left to say on this series. At times some players have been great and at other times they were underwhelming.
