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…

LGD: Bob Cole’s Send-off

The Toronto Maple Leafs have gone 5-7-3 in the last month, skidding their way to the finish line on the regular season as only the Toronto Maple Leafs can. They’ll face the recently-eliminated Montreal Canadiens for their last game of the season, resting pretty much their entire defensive corps and playing for little more than…

LGD: The chance to clinch

The Toronto Maple Leafs have been stuttering a bit down the back stretch of the season, but their end game – a third consecutive playoff berth after years of misery – is mathematically guaranteed if they play their cards right on Saturday evening. It’s a playoff-clinching night for Toronto, as they can guarantee their spot…

LGD: Leafs take on Manhattan’s tank titans

The Toronto Maple Leafs are suffering one of the greatest travesties to ever occur in pro sports, as they sit near the top of the standings but without a home-ice seeding projected for the postseason. That’s the perfect excuse to phone it in down the back stretch, but there may be no choice but to…

LGD: Bounce-Back SZN

The Toronto Maple Leafs have been the league’s most confusing team for the last handful of games. They’ve started out horrendously slow in all three of their most recent games, allowing a combined 17 goals to boast a horrendous 5.67 goals against average as a team since March 11th. While they all but flatlined against…

LGD: Nazem Kadri Returns

The Leafs are staring down the possibility of yet another first-round exit at the hands of their playoff bogeymen in Boston. While there’s been more than enough opportunity to melt down over that in the last handful of weeks, though, there’s still cause for celebration as the Leafs prepare for their Saturday evening game. Not…

Postgame: Capital Attack

The Leafs entered their matchup against Alex Ovechkin and Hometown Hero Headhunter Tom Wilson having lost a tough pair of games out west and hoping to bounce back. Instead, the team failed to get any momentum going for a third straight game, scrambling from behind once again as they fell in an ultimate 3-2 final…

LGD: Back to Back

The Leafs had a moment of sweet, sweet victory on Saturday evening, taking home a 4-3 overtime win over Carey Price and the Montreal Canadiens when Noted Canadiens Call Refuser John Tavares netted the final tally of the night in extra minutes. It was a nice call-back to Tavares’ first game as a Leaf, where…

LGD: The Price is Right

The Toronto Maple Leafs have finally started to turn things around, squeezing out a few wins after struggling through the meaty part of January. They still sit just one point ahead of the next-highest team in the Atlantic Division, though, and that makes their Saturday evening game an especially-crucial four-point matchup – because the game…

LGD: Bernier v. Sparks no more

The last time the Detroit Red Wings and the Toronto Maple Leafs squared off this year, the teams opted to deploy the Tandem of PTSD and Sadness in Garret Sparks and Jonathan Bernier, letting the team’s most controversial duo from the 2015-16 season face off in their respective redemptive roles. It was supposed to be…
