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 wil...

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...

Peter Tessier: Beware the Ides of March

The Winnipeg Jets are hosted by the Leafs tonight in Toronto on HNIC. IT’s a game that should have a playoff feel to it- much like the one on Tuesday in Winnipeg. The Leafs are on a 4 game skid and Jets are now building their own streak with 2 solid wins, 5-2 over the Leafs and 3-1 over the Rangers. With the most consistent play seen this season from the Jets it might be...

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...

Peter Tessier: Let’s Talk About Burmistrov

FYI the Jets have officially signed Arturs Kulda to a one-year, one-way pro-rated 550k deal for the final 20 games of the Jets' season. I’m not going to review the game from yesterday- let’s put it mildly: the effort was not there. However, the loss presents a whole load of other questions, which may help explain some of Coach Claude Noel’s actions/choices...

Mike Augello: Rielly To Join Marlies

As has been expected for the last few weeks, the Maple Leafs have assigned defenseman Morgan Rielly to the Toronto Marlies of the AHL with the end of his junior season. “He will join the Marlies this week on the road.” Leafs Assistant GM Dave Poulin indicated this morning on FAN 590’s Brady and Lang show. Rielly, who turned 19 years old last week, was selected...

Mike Augello: Jets Shootdown Leafs Comeback With Shootout Victory

The Maple Leafs for the second Saturday in a row mounted a furious comeback to gain a valuable point in the standings, but their inability to play competent defensively for an entire game cost them a win, as Zach Bogosian’s shootout goal gave the Winnipeg Jets a 5-4 victory at a sold out Air Canada Center. Toronto played with energy and physicality most of the night, but...

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...

Travis Yost: GAMEDAY: Senators Host Jets

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- It took both the Winnipeg Jets and Ottawa Senators extra-time on Saturday to best the opposition. Now, they'll turn and face one another in a Sunday afternoon affair as their collective chase for a playoff berth continues. Winnipeg's coming off a wild shootout victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Hockey Night in Canada,...

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...
