Maple Leafs Beat Canadiens—Lose James Reimer In The Process

Anytime the Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadiens meet you know there is going to be fireworks. Saturday nights tilt between did not disappoint as both teams played on the edge and brought their “A” games to the table.

James Reimer injury convenient for Maple Leafs

The collision Saturday night between Montreal Canadiens captain Brian Gionta and Toronto Maple Leafs goalie James Reimer is an unfortunate injury for the break-out net minder.

Battle of the Blades III Review: Featuring dweeby Boyd Devereaux

Welcome back to Puck Daddy's enduring, long-suffering coverage of Battle of the Blades, a program that, prior to being assigned by my editor to watch, I would have claimed you couldn't pay me to watch. As much as I find this show to be insufferable -- heck, that word might not even be strong enough -- I should admit up front that this week's program had a few tolerable...


At some point, the Maple Leafs are going to have to start dealing in facts when it comes to The Monster, goalie Jonas Gustavsson. Pretty much every game Gustavsson plays, he gives up a whack of goals, almost always three...
