Toronto Maple Leafs
SERIES 2-1 BOSTON
"There's only one true superstar of the decade, true superstar of the milenium! You know who that is? The Rask will tell you how that is! Toronto, that is the Leafs beating, puck eating, trail blazing, save raising, stronger than a bear, stronger than a buck, the biggest thing to hit Canada because THE MAPLE LEAFS SUCK!" - The Rask
Tuukkamania is running wild in Toronto right now. Rask was awesome against Toronto in Game 3, stopping 45 shots and grabbing the win. I guess it helps when you have turds like Dion Phaneuf playing for the Leafs. The guy is a useless tool - it's amazing. How a captain can be that bad on offense, defense and in transition is amazing to me. He can't do ANYTHING! He laid a huge hit on Paille in Game 2, then a huge hit on Peverley in Game 3 and then got burnt by Danny Paille for a goal.

Seriously though, look at this. Look at what Tuukka Rask is doing in net ...
BEST OF MAXIM
In 2011, when the Boston Bruins went on their magical run towards hoisting Lord Stanley’s cup for the first time since 1972, the majority of the attention was focused on Conn Smythe winner Tim Thomas, and for good reason. Flying under the radar was number one center David Krejci, who only led the entire league in playoff scoring with 23 points. With his three-goal performance...
Nathan Horton and Milan Lucic are finally playing like first line players
Most Bruins’ fans always had the “real” first line and the “people’s” first line. The real first line – the one that is listed on the depth chart as the first line – is the line made up of Milan Lucic, David Krejci and Nathan Horton. For two years, however, the line that was sent out whenever...
When it comes to the playoffs, the Bruins go as David Krejci goes. He’s been one of the best players on the ice through four games in Boston’s first-round series with the Toronto Maple Leafs, and as a result, the Bruins are one game from winning the series.
Krejci played another phenomenal game, and he capped it with an overtime winner — giving him a hat trick — in the Bruins’...
David Krejci showed up for the playoffs as he scored a hat trick leading the Bruins to a 4-3 overtime win to increase their series lead to 3-1.Despite the Bruins outshooting the Leafs in the first period they found themselves down 2-0 as Toronto came out to an early 2-0 lead behind goals by Lupul and Franson.The Bruins picked up a huge power play at the conclusion of the 1st and...
Bruins 5, Maple Leafs 2
Bruins bounce back from Game 2 loss, win first playoff game in Toronto in nine years to take 2-1 series lead.
Thousands of ecstatic “Beleafers” packed the Air Canada Centre and the outdoor viewing area just outside the arena to watch the Maple Leafs host their first playoff game at home in nine years on Monday night against the Bruins...
Several Boston Bruins players (Tyler Seguin, Nathan Horton, Johnny Boychuck, Dennis Seidenberg, Brad Marchand, and David Krejci) kicked a soccer ball around prior to their afternoon practice at the ACC on Tuesday, May 7th.
A.B. There is something memorizing about watching these Bruins players kick & head a soccer ball around. I don’t know if I’m more impressed by the fact...
The Bruins captured Game 3 of their Stanley Cup Playoff series against the Maple Leafs in dominating fashion on Tuesday after capitalizing on Leafs turnovers.
The Bruins had an off day on Tuesday, but the game plan stays the same for Wednesday’s Game 4 matchup in Toronto. Dennis Seidenberg told reporters that come playoff time, it’s all about playing consistent hockey and taking...
from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
I looked down from the press box Monday night during the national anthems, an electric atmosphere rocking Air Canada Centre before Game 3.
I wondered in particular what was going through Jaromir Jagr's mind. I was picturing the future Hall of Famer soaking it all in, wanting to make sure he enjoyed these types of moments as his spectacular...
Johnny Boychuk was a man among boys last night, especially early in the second period where Boychuk blocked a shot and kept going, obviously in a lot of pain. He would later leave the game and return.
Our German buddy, German B's fan put this together and it's too good to not share.
Last night the Boston Bruins took a 3-1 series lead over the Toronto Maple Leafs despite Tyler Seguin. The guy who had hockey fans in Boston frothing at the mouth like rabid skunks in 2010 has begun to reveal himself as something of, well, a dud when it comes to the playoffs. So far, against the Leafs, Seguin has 0 points. Zero goals. Zero assists. 18 shots on goal. In last nights...
Even in the fiercest of rivalries, there are some lines not meant to be crossed.
A Toronto Maple Leafs fan may have done just that on Monday, however, by bring a "Toronto Stronger" sign to the Air Canada Centre for Game 3 of the Toronto-Boston series.
The sign is ostensibly one-upping or mocking the "Boston Strong" mantra that the city embraced in the wake of...
Claude Julien likes to roll his four forward lines, and it’s easy to see why on a night like Monday.
The entire Bruins team contributed in the team’s 5-2 victory over the Maple Leafs, serving as a testament to Boston’s depth — and how integral that fourth line can be to the team’s success. The so-called “Merlot” line came through time and again in Toronto, helping the...
I couldn’t make this up if I tried.
Toronto Maple Leafs fans are on edge now that the team is down 3-1 in their first-round match up versus the Boston Bruins in the NHL Playoffs. So on edge that Leafs fans have already threatened to riot if the team loses the series, which it will.
Well in a story via the folks at Busted Coverage, last night one Leafs fan got a little bit too...
A Toronto Maple Leafs fan decided it was a good idea to take a cheap shot at Boston by making a "Toronto Stronger" sign. Bad idea, man.
It just wasn’t meant to be. Despite a great showing from the Toronto Maple Leafs in overtime, the Boston Bruins are victorious by a score of 4-3 thanks in large part to a hat trick from David Krejci which included the overtime winner. The Toronto Maple Leafs, for the second game in a row, out-shoot [...]
