Maple Leafs forward Joffrey Lupul took a jarring hit Thursday night in the first period against the Philadelphia Flyers and didn't return to the game.
Lupul dug the puck out of the corner in the Toronto end when Jay Rosehill and Adam Hall sandwiched him with hits. He immediately skated off the ice and went to the dressing room with just over seven minutes left in the period...
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.
The Toronto Maple Leafs bolstered their defense by acquiring Ryan O'Byrne from the Colorado Avalanche for a fourth-round draft pick in 2014.

The 28-year-old O'Byrne joins a Maple Leafs squad that's in the thick of the Eastern Conference playoff...
Well it wasn’t the action-packed trade deadline for the Toronto Maple Leafs that some thought it could be. However the Maple Leafs weren’t completely silent, as they added 28-year-old, veteran defenseman Ryan O’Byrne from the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for a 4th round draft pick in this years draft. It’s obvious the Maple Leafs’ biggest [...]
Coming off of a strong comeback win last night in Philly over Montreal, the Flyers (16-17-3) will look to make it four straight wins as they battle the Toronto Maple Leafs (20-12-4).

Do you think there should be a suspension???
Joffrey Lupul has been a key contributor as the Toronto Maple Leafs have moved into position to end the NHL's longest postseason drought.
Now, it's uncertain when the left wing will be able to resume helping that playoff push.
Lupul will be unavailable Saturday night against the slumping New Jersey Devils as Toronto goes on the road trying to bounce back from its first...
The Toronto Maple Leafs and Philadelphia Flyers both carry three-game winning streaks into their matchup Thursday night in Toronto, but under very different circumstances.
Toronto has its sights on ending the NHL's longest playoff drought after last reaching the postseason in 2004. While the Maple Leafs (20-12-4) own a share of fifth place in the Eastern Conference, the Flyers...
from Dave Feschuk of the Toronto Star,
Whether Lupul’s injury is significant or not is a matter for another day. He wasn’t available for comment after the game. And while Leafs coach Randy Carlyle reported that Lupul felt “fine,” pronouncing him “50-50” to participate in Friday’s practice, it was difficult to know what to make of the coach’s assessments. Though...
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 Vancouverâs Roberto Luongo.
The focus of Leafs...
Well, the Toronto Maple Leafs’ points streak is over. The Leafs lost to the Philadelphia Flyers 5-3 tonight. The Flyers were up 4-2 going into the third, and despite a great effort from the Leafs in the final stanza, they could not tie the game and take the loss. The Flyers out-shot the Maple Leafs 31-28.
