Toronto-maple-leafs
This was a pretty interesting series of events.  Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Korbinian Holzer and Winnipeg Jets forward Evander Kane were pushing and shoving in the corner and it looked like that they might fight.  Kane knew Holzer was bigger than him and declined Holzer’s attempt to fight.  Holzer had already thrown his gloves off and started to awkwardly pick his equipment back up when Jets defenseman Zach Bogosian stepped up and accepted Holzer’s offer. Holzer did a decent job against Bogosian considering he was caught off-guard and it was his first career NHL fight, but Bogosian gets the win here.  Holzer weighs in at 6’3″ 206 lbs and was given 5 minutes for fighting and an unsportsmanike conduct, while Bogosian weighs in at 6’2″ 190 lbs and was given 5 minutes for fighting, 2 minutes for instigating and a 10 minute misconduct. It was a good job by Bogosian to stand up for Kane and make sure the Jets’ star player doesn’t have to fight.  Perhaps for Holzer’s next fight, he will keep his gloves on long enough to make sure his opponent will actually fight him.  Meanwhile, the past two games have seen the development of a bit of a rivalry between the Winnipeg Jets and the Toronto Maple Leafs.  Too bad with the new NHL realignment that will get squashed before it really has time to start.

Colton Orr destroys Chris Thorburn in heavyweight fight

After Colton Orr (6’3″ 222 lbs) and Chris Thorburn (6’3″ 210 lbs) mixed it up during the Toronto Maple Leafs-Winnipeg Jets game on March 12th, they went for round 2 on Saturday night.  Unfortunately for Thorburn, like round 1, Colton Orr tuned him up.  The best punch was thrown at about the 36 second mark by Orr.  He worked his arm inside and Thorburn could do nothing...

Maple Leafs goalie Ben Scrivens posts picture of nasty bruise on Twitter

Being an NHL goalie isn’t without it’s problems.  Toronto Maple Leafs goalie Ben Scrivens posted a picture of a nasty bruise on his arm on Twitter on Monday and it is impressive.  Scrivens was pulled after two periods against the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday when he gave up four goals and the Maple Leafs ended up losing to Winnipeg in a shootout 5-4.  It’s not clear whether...

Toronto Maple Leafs: The losing skid continues

The Toronto Maple Leafs have now lost five straight games and are barely hanging on to a playoff spot after losing to Pittsburgh and Winnipeg. I was very disappointed at the result of the game against the Penguins.  They were a little over two minutes away in the third period of getting a single point, but Sidney Crosby and company scored two unanswered goals to win it 3-1. Tyler...

Tyler Bozak throws incredible cross-ice backhand sauce pass to set up Phil Kessel goal

This is as pretty of a pass as you will ever see.  Almost six minutes into the third period, the Toronto Maple Leafs were trailing the Winnipeg Jets 4-3 when Maple Leafs forward Tyler Bozak threw this incredible pass.  This backhand cross-ice saucer pass was just out of the reach of Jets defenseman Ron Hainsey’s reach and landed perfectly on Phil Kessel’s stick.  Kessel then...

Shooting Practice

from Kevin McGran of the Toronto Star, It’s morning. Time to shoot some pucks. Out walk Clarke MacArthur and John-Michael Liles, to a $100,000 contraption that will let them do just that. Gone are the days of shooting pucks and denting the garage. Or putting up the fake goalie in the net with the five holes clearly marked. In this day and age of high tech and every...

Jets-Senators Preview

The last time these clubs met, the Winnipeg Jets ended the Ottawa Senators' six-game home points streak. The Southeast Division-leading Jets can do that again. Winnipeg will also go for its first seven-game points streak in six seasons on Sunday when it faces a Senators club that could tie a league record for consecutive one-goal games. After the visiting Senators (14-8-6...

Bruins-Jets Preview

With the lockout-shortened season winding down and playoff races heating up, the condensed schedule is beginning to take its toll on the Boston Bruins and Winnipeg Jets. Neither team will be getting much of a break anytime soon, either. Boston looks to avoid a third consecutive road loss Tuesday night by earning a third straight win over Winnipeg, which begins a four-game homestand...

Jets 5, Maple Leafs 4, SO

Zach Bogosian scored in the 10th round of the shootout to give the Winnipeg Jets a 5-4 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday. Bogosian beat James Reimer, who replaced starter Ben Scrivens to start the third period, for Winnipeg's second goal of the shootout after Blake Wheeler scored to open the shootout. Tyler Bozak had the lone shootout goal for Toronto. Wheeler had...

Jets Learning To Win

from Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun, “We have to learn how to win games in the third,” said Jets blue-liner Zach Bogosian. “We’ve just got to keep the pressure on. It’s something we’ve talked about, playing with the lead. You have to make sure you just keeping forward and we did a real good job of that.” The Jets continue to work on raising their expectations...
