Leafs look to keep up hot streak against slumping Flames

If there was ever a game with two teams going in different directions, this is it. The Toronto Maple Leafs currently find themselves on a 5-0-1 stretch, or as Pierre LeBrun would call it, a “lossless” streak. In fact, the last time the Leafs lost in regulation was against the Flames, and also Frederik Andersen’s…

Leafs look for another dominant performance against the Jets

The Leafs and Jets are squaring off for the second game of this series in Winnipeg, and the Leafs are not only looking for another win to pull them even further ahead of the pack, they’re also looking to put up another dominant performance against the Jets. Based on the Leafs xGF% in each game…

TLN Three Stars: McDavid gets his fifth ever win against the Leafs

After many exciting games between the two (with most of them falling in the Leafs favour thankfully), the Leafs and Oilers concluded their nine game season series tonight. It lived up to the expectations of McDavid vs. Matthews, as there were chances galore at both ends of the ice. The Oilers opened the scoring with…

Scott’s Thoughts: Midseason Awards

Keeping in the spirit of last week’s report cards, I figured right now would be a great time to look back on the first half of the season and appreciate the performances we’ve gotten from players this year. But, this one isn’t going to be solely Leafs focused. In fact, there’s a good chance there…

Scott’s Thoughts: Mid-season report cards

We’re more than halfway through the season, and with that means we can start to hand out some report cards for the Leafs players based on their performance so far. Their grades will be waited by a combination of their performance, but also their expectations going into the season. The evaluations will be based on…

Leafs look to rebound against Sens before brief break

There’s no sugar coating it: last night was bad. The officiating was terrible, Frederik Andersen wasn’t good either, and the team in front of him was basically non-existent. In a game where they had dominated the Winnipeg Jets previously in the week and were finally facing the backup goalie, this should’ve been an easy win,…

Leafs look to build on Thursday’s win tonight vs. Jets

To say this series hasn’t made Leafs Nation collectively age several decades this week would be an understatement. After falling short on Tuesday, it looked like the Winnipeg Hellebuyck’s… er, I mean Jets, had the Leafs on the ropes again until goals from William Nylander and Ilya Mikheyev got the Leafs ahead before the Jets…

Goaltending the difference maker as Leafs drop their third in a row

The Leafs were looking to put an end to their first regulation losing streak of the season with a win tonight, and very well played like they didn’t want to, but unfortunately for them, some opportunistic scoring from the Winnipeg Jets and Connor Hellebuyck played like the reigning Vezina trophy winner saw them lose three…

Scott’s Thoughts: So, you want to trade William Nylander again?

If I had a nickel for every time William Nylander’s name was thrown around in trade rumours for something the other core players would just get a stern finger wagging for, I’d probably be the richest man in the world. Look, Nylander isn’t a perfect player. His defense can be a bit lacking, he’s prone…

Leafs look to avoid first series loss this season against Canucks

Since the season started almost two months ago, the Leafs have played 13 different “series’” this season, also counting just a single game against an opponent as one. Going into tonight’s game, they have yet to lose one, but that may be in jeopardy tonight, as the Leafs look to rebound from Thursday night’s 3-1…
