Fans might turn to Chris Bourque for some help sparking the Bruins’ power-play unit this year, and they do so with good reason.
After all, it’s Ray Bourque, Chris’ father, who holds the team’s record for most power-play goals scored, with 166.
Over the course of an illustrious 21-year career in Boston, the elder Bourque scored 395 goals, with 31 of them coming in the 1983...
There is one thing I’ve noticed about the Toronto Maple Leafs this year is that they are not going to be pushed around. Even the host of CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada’s Coach’s Corner, Don Cherry recognized that fact on the weekend when he analyzed the first period of the Montreal game.
The Leafs marched into Montreal and took control of the game right away. ”We...

It's no secret that the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Montreal Canadiens do not get along. It's also no secret that teams get chippy during one-sided blowouts, as the game between the two teams on Saturday night demonstrated in clear fashion. In a melee along the boards at about 11:30 into the third period, Max Pacioretty decided to put Mikhail Grabovski into a headlock....
The Maple Leafs thumped the Flyers 5-2 last night in Toronto and the big highlight on the Internet is of middle-aged, bald, Canadian natural gas executive guy who had a few too many Molson Canadians on a Monday night.
And then the arena DJ dropped some Nirvana “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”
That’s all it took Pascal to unleash his inner 1993 when he would slam imported Old Milwaukee...

Brian Burke must be wondering where was all this toughness when he was GM.
“We require, as a team, proper levels of pugnacity, testosterone and belligerence.”
Brian Burke, November 2008
That was Burke’s famous quote when he took over the Leafs more than four years ago but it has been for the most part missing – until...
The excitement generated by the Maple Leafs 5-2 victory and dominating performance against the Philadelphia Flyers at the Air Canada Center Monday night was tempered as goaltender James Reimer left the game due to a lower body injury and did not return.
The Leafs improve to 8-5-0 on the year, as Dion Phaneuf, Colton Orr, Matt Frattin, Clarke MacArthur and James van Riemsdyk scored...
The NHL has an interesting policy on wanting to know when things happened - you know, when evidence is present. An ejection from the game for a major match penalty? Nah. You don't need evidence at that moment... maybe the next day when you decide if you should rescind a penalty. Do you need evidence to know if a disallowed goal is a mistake? No. A high stick or a kicked in puck...

Things got a little heated in one of the NHL’s best rivalries Saturday night, and an alleged biting incident has drawn the attention of the NHL.
Maple Leafs forward Mikhail Grabovski is scheduled to have a Sunday hearing with the league after he appeared to bite Montreal’s Max Pacioretty during a heated scrum late in Toronto’s 6-0 win over the Canadiens on Saturday night.
Tonight’s 5-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs was not the start to a six game road trip the Flyers were looking for. The Flyers are coming off of a four-game home stand in which they earned seven of a […]
