Maple Leafs forward Joffrey Lupul will miss at least six weeks because of a broken forearm. Lupul was injured Wednesday night in the second period of Toronto's 5-2 win at Pittsburgh. Lupul was in front of the net during a power play when he was hit in the arm by a slap shot taken by teammate Dion Phaneuf. Lupul left the game immediately and didn't return. The Maple Leafs say that Lupul was placed on the injured list. He was replaced on the roster by forward Matt Frattin, who was recalled from the Toronto Marlies of the AHL before the Maple Leafs hosted the New York Islanders on Thursday night. Frattin has nine goals and eight assists in 21 games with the Marlies. Lupul, who signed a five-year contract extension on Sunday, failed to record a point in three games this season.

Colton Orr And Deryk Engeland Awesome Hockey Brawl

Colton Orr and Deryk Engeland really like to fight each other. They had a few good brawls back in 2010 and tonight they continued it with a near minute and a half long boxing match.  This was one hell of a fight. It looks like Engeland got the worst of it.

Report: Leafs without Lupul

Six to eight weeks, perhaps? That seems to be the standard period of absence for an NHL player with a broken/fractured forearm.

The Maple Leafs’ Colton Orr and Pittsbugh’s Deryk Engelland renewed their pugilistic rivalry last night with one of the better fights in the history of this relationship.

Get Ready For Luongo To Toronto Talk, Again

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, The conversation begins again. It has to. It has to because with any kind of goaltending the Maple Leafs don’t lose to the New York Islanders Thursday night. The conversation begins again, because there were boos instead of Lous at the Air Canada Centre. And the more there are boos, ask Ron Wilson about that, the more calls there...

Colton Orr And Deryk Engelland Beat The Crap Out Of Each Other (Again) Last Night

Colton Orr and Derek Engelland have a rivalry that dates all the way back to 2000, when they first dropped the gloves as youngsters in the Western Hockey League (WHL), and then later in the AHL and NHL. As you can see from the video above, that rivalry still burns pretty good to this day. Engelland has a history of getting the better of Orr (see here and here) but this latest bout...

Dion Phaneuf blast John Tavares from behind.

Not a good hit by Maple Leafs defenseman Dion Phaneauf on Islanders forward John Tavares. I am also shocked that there was no penalty on the play as the referee was standing where he could see the play.
