How the Penalty Kill Could Be Changed to Generate More Offense

Yes, I know, this sounds like a really weird thing to be looking into. After all, the penalty kill isn’t meant to be a point of the game where you score, it’s where you try your hardest to make sure the other team doesn’t score. However, an ideal penalty kill should at the very least…

Leafs Postgame: Frking with the Red Wings

Well, that was… something. After an excellent win on the road in Washington, the Leafs played a solid enough game to outscore a below average performance from Curtis McElhinney, all while not getting caved in possession wise on the second half of a back to back. They also lit up Howard bad enough, it’s hard…
