Well, here we go again. A first-round series between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Boston Bruins will be decided in seven games. With only a few hours left before an epic game-seven, I am going to cut straight to the meat and potatoes. Therefore, in this article, I will be demonstrating how the Bruins…

Game Four Thoughts: The Bruins steal one in Toronto

The Boston Bruins have won game four to tie the series up at two. For the Leafs, these are the types of games that could haunt you if you don’t end up advancing to the next round. They could have taken hold of the series but instead, are entering a best-of-three, where the Bruins have…

Game Two Thoughts: How the Bruins adjusted and took over Game Two

Game Two was one of those games that feels more important than it actually is. It was a textbook Boston Bruins win.

How high is Travis Dermott’s ceiling?

Between the incoming Nylander contract deadline, the Matthews injury and potential trades flying all over the internet, there hasn’t been a shortage of Leafs news recently. One story that isn’t getting the attention it deserves is the play of Travis Dermott. When Kyle Dubas was asked about the Leafs defense this past summer, he responded saying…

The Hurricanes are all-in on William Nylander

As the rumours become louder, the dialogue between the Leafs and the Nylander camp continue to be kept secret. The latest speculation regarding Nylander came from the HNIC segment “Headlines”. Here is the quote from Elliotte Fridman. “When the time does come, if the time does come that Toronto decides they are going to deal (Nylander),…
