Goal Analysis – Maple Leafs vs. Blue Jackets Play-In Game #4

This team man. For 55 minutes, the Leafs had nothing going for them. Then they decided to turn it on in the final five minutes of the game. That’s what is most frustrating with this team. Far too often this season the Leafs loved to pick and choose when they wanted to show up and…

What to expect from Morgan Rielly this summer

Morgan Rielly entered the 2019-20 season at an all-time high. Fresh off a career high 20-goal, 72-point season that saw Rielly finish fifth in Norris Trophy voting, I for one was very excited to see what kind of encore performance Rielly would give us this year.
