Morning-after recap: Still thinking about Jake’s stretch pass

HELLO. Last night’s helter-skelter whirlwind of a game is behind us, and I’m honestly still hype about some of those goals. (Mostly the second Willy goal, but I don’t want to get ahead of myself here.) Here’s the goal-by-goal recap of whatever last night was. May we witness more fun like that soon, and may…

Leafs Postgame: What just happened

Before we get started… Wanted to let you know Roman Polak has played 666 games. Anyway, we had ourselves a barn-burner tonight! Not sure that either coach will be thrilled with how fast and loose this game was, but from a fan perspective, this was a damn fun game. One thing probably weighing on the…

LGD: Show Tavares What He’s Missing

After a brief respite from Leafs hockey for the All-Star Break, we’re finally back at it. Tonight the Leafs take on the Islanders, who played (and lost) last night against the Panthers. I’m inclined to be optimistic about this one, folks — especially since the Leafs should be (in theory) rested, refreshed, and ready to…

LGD: Stop the Klingberg

Howdy! It’s Game Day in Dallas, the weather is beautiful, and your Leafs are on the second game of a back-to-back against a surging Stars team with Curtis McElhinney (bless him) in net.

LGD: Please Beat the Sens

HAPPY GAME DAY! THE LEAFS HAVE LOST FOUR STRAIGHT! Now that we’ve addressed that elephant in the room, we can get on with our lives and this preview. Suffice it to say that the Leafs have not been playing their best hockey of late. I think we were maybe hoping that fatigue was getting to…

Morning-after recap: Bring Back the Fun Leafs

That game was, to put it kindly, A SNOOZER. The Leafs were outshot, out-attempted, and somehow still managed to go into the final minute of the game with the lead. Unfortunately, that didn’t last. But hang on, we’re getting ahead of ourselves. Let’s begin with the first (and only Leafs) goal of the game. 1-0…

Leafs Postgame: Over and Dunn With

THE BOYS ARE BACK IN TOWN! And they’re back to driving us up the wall, which is how you know we’re really back. Corsis (via corsica.hockey) The Blues are like, a good hockey team this year. They were good tonight. The Leafs were out-Corsi’d for much of this game, including the back half of the…

Leafs Recall Dermott, Gauthier

As expected, the Toronto Maple Leafs have recalled defenseman Travis Dermott and forward Frederik Gauthier to the big boys’ club. Dermott and Gauthier had been returned to the Marlies during the Leafs’ NHL-mandated bye week, but they’re back, present at practice, and ready to go. .SportChek Player Alert: MapleLeafs recall Travis Dermott and Frederik Gauthier…

Morning-after-recap: This game was okay but not great

We’ve thought about this loss, we’ve gotten to sleep on it, and you know what? It wasn’t the worst. The Leafs have won games that felt worse than this one, so we’ll just go ahead and ignore that they’ve lost four of their last five! Here’s all of the scoring from last night, just in…

Leafs Postgame: Mitch Has His Groove Back

No matter what happened today, it wouldn’t have been as beautiful as yesterday, so we were just set up for disappointment from the start. Like, I’m a glass-half-full person, but facts are facts. And as it happened, it was a pretty unremarkable game overall. Both Leafs goals were very nice, but there were only two…

LGD: The Magic School Lum-bus

Remember how, around 36 hours ago, Leafs Nation was in disarray at having lost three straight games? Well, we’re over that now, because yesterday’s game was a cure-all. Seriously, my skin has cleared, my crops are flourishing, William Nylander scored a goal, all is well in Leafs Land. Welcome to the next century, heck yeah. Meanwhile,…

Morning After Recap: Lucky Bounces Lead Leafs to Win

Good morning, Toronto! In just a few days, you’ve snatched the Grey Cup out from under Calgary’s noses, then turned around and handed a loss to the Flames. Not bad, not bad. Here’s how last night’s win went down. 1-0 Leafs (Roman Polak pinball goal) Look… When I say pinball, I mean pinball. The puck…
