Mike Babcock has to let the stars be stars in game seven

This isn’t going to be a long post so let’s just get into it. If you’re reading this from a Leafs-centric perspective you already know all about what’s upon us in the next 24-hours. Toronto and Boston, game seven at TD Garden, serious stress, doubts, thoughts of blown third period leads. You likely already have…

Andersen has stepped up his play this series

It’s hard to believe that 10 years ago, we were hard pressed for a decent goaltender to help us get to the playoffs. I love James Reimer as much as the next guy (probably more), but when he’s the best goalie that’s been between the Leafs pipes, that means you’ve had goalie problems. That’s why…

The Leafs need more from Mitch Marner in Game 7

Let’s get one thing out of the way. Mitch Marner was never supposed to be this good, if you talked to some people. It’s crazy that we’re talking about a 94-point player in his third year in the league, that came into the NHL with doubts about if he could handle the physicality. But if…

Rewriting The Script

Here we go again. The exasperated sighs rang out across Leafs Nation yesterday afternoon, as the Leafs ultimately fell 4-2 to the Boston Bruins, in a game that saw them squander an early lead to a miserable penalty kill that allowed the Bruins to score twice on their first two attempts in the game. With…

Are you ready for Playoff Patrick?

So far in this year’s playoffs series with the Boston Bruins, we haven’t seen much out of Patrick Marleau. He has just the one assist so far, from the Game 1 rout of Boston by Toronto. Last year we saw a lot more of out of him, and many fans aren’t expecting much out of…

Round 1 Game 5 Postgame: Leafs vs. Bruins

Okay everybody, take a deep breath, and relax. We did the thing again. We went into Boston and, when we needed to, got the victory. Now we head home with an opportunity to finish the job. Let’s take a closer look at how they did. 1st Period The Leafs did an excellent job in the…

Game 5 Thoughts: Clutch and Complete Leafs Win In Boston

Going back to Boston after dropping Wednesday’s Game 4 at home could have gone one of two ways for the Leafs. They could have walked out of Boston down 3-2 in their first-round series, staring down elimination and hoping to force a 7th game, or they could have left the Boston Bruins on the brink…

LGD: On the Road Again

There was almost no chance that the Leafs were going to avoid having to play at TD Garden more than twice in the first round. With a low probability for a sweep and home ice advantage for Boston, Toronto’s team knew that they’d have to head into enemy territory more often than not as the…
