Found November 19, 2013 on Talk Hockey:
Ever wondered what one of the NHL's most lethal snap shots looks like in slow motion? Well, I've got you covered. Above is a super slow motion replay of Phil Kessel's second goal in the Toronto Maple Leafs' 5-2 win over the New York Islanders. The goal was Kessel's 400th career point. He wasn't the only Leaf to reach a milestone though as newcomer David Clarkson even got his first ever goal in the blue and white. Also, I just realized that Clarkson has very scary eyes like Maurice Richard. Related:GIF: Phil Kessel goes coast-to-coast versus the Devils**

Kessel out with flu, Bozak nears return

It’s not another significant injury, but there was another missing body at practice on Monday for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Leafs irate over ‘Princess Phaneuf’ comment, Scott expresses regret

Following Saturday night’s 4-2 loss to Toronto, Buffalo enforcer John Scott took aim at Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf by calling him “Princess Phaneuf” in response to this third-period scrum. “All of a sudden I’m not allowed to hit him anymore. He’s Princess Phaneuf. It’s a joke,” Scott after the game.“My leg’s fine, everything’s good. It’s just something where...

Clarkson: "I wasn't brought in here to score 50 goals"

Standing comfortably by his dressing room stall, David Clarkson refuses to dodge questions about a goal drought that's lingered 10 games into the start of his Maple Leafs career. He's willing answer queries for as long as needed. "Ask whatever you want," he says. And he understands the questions. But he also knows why he was brought into the fold in Toronto and...

John Scott Riles Up Maple Leafs With ‘Princess Phaneuf’ Comment, Says He Regrets Quip

The Maple Leafs and Bruins don’t have a whole lot in common or shared thoughts and visions, but they can probably agree on one thing, which is that neither is a huge fan of Sabres enforcer John Scott. The big forward was at the center of attention yet again this weekend when he decided to open his mouth following Toronto’s 4-2 win over the Sabres that earned the Leafs a split...

Awkward: Rick DiPietro, AHL team in same Toronto hotel as Isles

The New York Islanders are in Toronto to play the Maple Leafs on Tuesday night in NHL action. The Charlotte Checkers are in Toronto for a pair of games including one on Tuesday night against the Marlines in AHL action. That's why things might get a little awkward in Canada's biggest city and that's ignoring all of the shenanigans at Toronto City Hall. Why is that awkward...

GM meetings spur moves by Blackhawks, Maple Leafs

Predictably, when NHL general managers gathered in Toronto last week for their semi-annual meeting to discuss rule changes, there was the usual amount of face-to-face trade talk as well. It resulted in a couple of minor deals – the Toronto Maple Leafs getting additional depth at forward by acquiring Peter Holland from the Anaheim Ducks and the Chicago Blackhawks fleshing out the...

GIF: Vladimir Tkachyov Highlight Reel Goal

Kadri back between Kessel and Van Riemsdyk

Nazem Kadri was on the Toronto Maple Leafs top line in practice Wednesday as he prepares to return from his three-game suspension. Kadri says he won’t change the way he bodychecks other players now that he is returning from a suspension.
