LGD: Let’s Finish This

This is it. Game 7. Boston. We’ve been here before…but that doesn’t need to mean anything. The Leafs survived Game 5 in Boston, and if they come to play, they can do more than just survive Game 7. The last two games were do or die for the Buds–the only difference tonight is that it’s…

Somebody is gonna have to be the hero in Game 7…why not a Leaf?

To get the obvious point out of the way, the Game 7 hero should definitely be a Leaf. That being said, these are my suggestions: Option #1: Mitch Marner Mighty Marner!#StandWitness | #StanleyCup pic.twitter.com/Ry5S2kSPZl — Toronto Maple Leafs (@MapleLeafs) April 24, 2018 Why: He’s been the Leafs’ best player all series, he has a history…

Morning-after recap: Nothing really matters

Obviously no one wanted to lose to the Winnipeg Jets with one week left in the regular season, but on the other hand, who cares? The Leafs have already clinched (so have the Jets, whatever), and this is the time to get all the bugs out. The main downside of this loss is definitely the…

Postgame: Not the rematch we were hoping for

Remember the season-opener in Winnipeg, when the Leafs put up 7 on the Jets? Yeah, this was not that game. But, that being said, it’s worth mentioning that that game was actually a pretty good precursor of the Leafs’ 2017-18 season: goals came from Kadri (31), van Riemsdyk (36), Nylander (17), Marleau (25), Marner (22),…

LGD: Waddle Waddle

It’s game day, the Buds have won 10 of their last 12 games (going four for five on the road), and they’re on a five-game winning streak. Even after giving up 57 shots to the CBJs on Wednesday, the Leafs managed to come out on top, and now they’re in Pittsburgh looking for six in…

Leafs Postgame: Basically a Home Win

The Leafs are now 1 for 3 vs Ottawa this season! Okay, starting out we have some good news and some bad news. The bad news: Morgan Rielly did not play. He was a game-time decision after getting banged up against Philadelphia on Thursday, and the decision was no. The good news: Andreas Borgman, Connor…

Morning after recap: Did we lose to the Flyers again? (Yes)

While a 4-2 loss was definitely not the outcome we wanted, it may have been the outcome the Leafs deserved. So learn from past mistakes and do better next time, right? The Leafs had some good along with the bad last night, but Frederik Andersen couldn’t quite win this one. Check out the goals with…

Leafs Postgame: Hate when we lose

After several rough outings, the Leafs’ mediocre play finally cost them a game. It was a close one (thanks, Freddy), but a loss nonetheless. For first time in a while, the outcome kind of matches the numbers. On the bright side, Mitch Marner leads the team in assists (just like last year, when he had…

LGD: Can the Pens just go away already?

  It’s game day! The Buds are on the road again tonight for their first game of a back-to-back, and their first time seeing the Penguins since April. The last time these teams faced off, the Leafs defeated the Stanley Cup Champions to punch their ticket to the playoffs. This will be the Pens’ fourth…
