Rachel Doerrie’s 5 Thoughts From Philly: Mail It In Tuesday

Well, this wasn’t your typical 6-1 hockey game. Rather, it was a close one for 56 minutes before things really fell apart.

Rachel Doerrie’s 5 Thoughts From the Hall of Fame Game

Another day, another loss to the Bruins. The difference? You could make a legitimate argument that the Leafs were the best team on the night.

As they say in the dressing room, the boys are buzzing! The Maple Leafs enter the final game of their homestead on a three-game win streak, which happened to start against these very Flyers.

Rachel Doerrie’s 5 Thoughts vs. LA: Zzzzzzzzzzzz

The Maple Leafs playing the LA Kings on Tuesday nigh–zzzzzzzzzzz! This was one of the most boring Leafs games in a long while. Through the first 50 minutes, both teams COMBINED for 35 shots.
