Neutral fans, what do you think, should Kadri been whistled for a penalty?

Peter Holland may miss Maple Leafs game with severe 'lace bite'

Apparently Holland's is so bad it has left him on crutches with a badly swollen foot. Forward James van Riemsdyk told TSN's Mark Masters it is the worst he's ever seen. Holland was skating in new skates and lace bite can be a common problem when breaking them in, but this sounds abnormally severe and painful. Maple Leafs head coach called the injury “crazy,” when...

Maple Leafs have success splitting up Morgan Rielly and Jake Gardiner

As much as Randy Carlyle likes the offensive skills that Jake Gardiner and Morgan Rielly can bring as a defence pair, the Maple Leafs coach also has a firm grip on what the youngsters can learn when put with a veteran. Gardiner and Rielly had been together for 10 games before Carlyle broke them up on Thursday night, after the two were weak on for the Florida Panthers’ first goal...

Kessel hat trick powers Maple Leafs over Sens

Phil Kessel laughed at the notion of helmets being tossed on the ice for his hat trick on Armed Forces Night. Yet it was a game in which basic training in structure and discipline had as much a role for the Maple Leafs as Kessel’s three goals, including his 30th, and his four points in a 6-3 win over the Ottawa Senators. Down 2-0 for the second straight home game on Saturday...

Leafs on a roll since Nonis’s stern warning

Dave Nonis stood in front of the Toronto Maple Leafs and ran through the unwelcome consequences that were coming if the team continued on its losing ways.

Toronto's (30-21-6) streak is its longest...

Bolland won't rush return to Leafs lineup

Dave Bolland repeated himself to hammer home the point. "Fifty-fifty," he said of his odds to return before the Olympic break. "Fifty-fifty." Bolland, who took part in his first full practice Friday since returning to the ice, continues to inch back toward a return from a severed left ankle tendon, one that has kept him out of the Toronto lineup since Nov...

Travis Yost: Kessel Goes Wild

A few thoughts after Toronto's 6-3 victory over Ottawa. (1) Obviously, the big story of the game was Phil Kessel doing what Phil Kessel does -- being the best player on the ice most every night. He's barely containable on a bad night and when he's got things clicking, he's one of the most effective forwards in the world. He's always had a knack for beating...

Mike Augello: Kadri Will Not Face Supplemental Discipline For Hit On Ceci

HNIC's Elliotte Friedman reports that Leafs forward Nazem Kadri will not face supplemental discipline for his hit of Senators defenseman Cody Ceci in Saturday's 6-3 victory over Ottawa. The play was a key turning point in the game between the two provincial rivals, as Kadri labeled the Sens blueliner behind the net and immediately fed line mate Joffrey Lupul for the tying...

Senators-Maple Leafs Preview

The Battle of Ontario has been a one-sided affair of late, and the Toronto Maple Leafs will try to keep it that way while continuing their strong play at home Saturday night against the Ottawa Senators.
