Video- Joffrey Lupul Leaves The Ice Very Woozy

Lupul found himself between Adam Hall and Jay Rosehill and you can see Lupul's head snap back but I don't really see anything flagrant on the play and no penalty was called. Lupul went to the dressing room and has not returned.

Mike Augello: Leafs Sign McIntyre For Remainder of The Season

The Maple Leafs have signed goaltender Drew MacIntrye to an NHL contract for the remainder of the season. The 29 year old MacIntyre was signed to an AHL-only contract in mid February, after James Reimer’s injury forced the recall of Marlies goalie Jussi Rynnas. Since then, the Prince Edward Island native has a 10-3-3- record, 1.85 GAA and has wrestled the number one job...

Mike Augello: Leafs At The Deadline; Roberto, Kipper Or Stand Pat In Goal

The Maple Leafs will be deeply involved in the pursuit of a veteran goaltender before the 3PM NHL Trade Deadline. The question is whether the recent rumors of attempting to convince Calgary goalie Miikka Kiprusoff to come to Toronto are an expression of genuine interest or an elaborate ruse to pay a more reasonable price for Vancouver’s Roberto Luongo. The focus of Leafs...
