The Maple Leafs 3-0 victory over Ottawa on Saturday was the type of winning effort that Toronto fans are not accustomed to seeing.
The injury riddled Senators, without stars Jason Spezza and Erik Karlsson outhustled and outchanced the Blue and White, but thanks to fortuitous deflections by Frazer McLaren and Tyler Bozak, an empty netter from John-Michael Liles and a stellar 34 save performance...

I had a good feeling before the Toronto Maple Leafs faced Ottawa this weekend that they were going to bounce back from their 3-1 loss to Carolina.
On the night that the Leafs organization honored the 1963 Stanley Cup Champions, Toronto shut out the Senators 3-0. A perfect end for a special night.
Ben Scrivens got his first NHL shut out against Ottawa

Move over deer antler spray. The newest craze in sports products? Cut-resistant socks.
Last week, the Senators all-star defensemen, Erik Karlsson, had his Achilles heel sliced by the skate of the Penguins Matt Cooke. It was a fluke play -- depending on who you ask -- but it was a play which made more NHL teams take preventative measures to ensure the safety of their team. Enter...
The Toronto Sun's Steve Simmons believes that the Toronto Maple Leafs need to retire Dave Keon's #14 while Maple Leafs legend is still around, but as Simmons notes in his Sunday column, Keon's status as estranged from the Leafs' former and current ownership regimes complicates the situation significantly:
The name is missing from the rafters. You look up at the...
Late on this but the following is a transcript of Bryan Murray's press conference to update the media on Erik Karlsson's status. Credit should be given to Murray for staying composed and keeping it together. He's essentially the antithesis of Eugene Melnyk.
As always, my thoughts will be in bold.
“First of all an update on Erik – he had surgery...
Ok, let me justify that headline a little before people get all over me. He isn’t completely terrible as in he shouldn’t be in the league terrible. He’s just a terrible first line center, and probably not a very good second or third line center either (at least not until he improves defensively). He’d be [...]The post The terrible Tyler Bozak appeared first on HockeyAnalysis.com.
It wasn't pretty at times, but the play of netminder Ben Scrivens' en route to his first National Hockey League shutout handed the Toronto Maple Leafs a decisive three-goal victory over division rival Ottawa on Hockey Night in Canada.
Scrivens, playing in relief of the injured James Reimer, stopped all thirty-four shots he faced, including twenty-nine over the final two...
On Saturday Night's Coach's Corner, Don Cherry weighed in on Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson's torn Achilles' tendon at the hand...I mean foot of Pittsburgh penguins forward Matt Cooke, and Cherry actually defended Cooke, suggesting instead that Karlsson was at fault for not taping his skate to his ankle:
It took 19 games for goaltender Ben Scrivens to earn his first NHL shutout and just one more game to get his second.
The Maple Leafs overcame a sluggish start and defeated the struggling Florida Panthers 3-0 at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, FL, as Scrivens made 37 saves for his fourth win of the season.
Phil Kessel, Nazem Kadri and Clarke MacArthur scored for the Leafs,...

Paul MacLean was hopeful that the team would receive a rare bit of positive news on the injury front with respect to Peter Regin and Milan Michalek in preparation for Monday's game. Said news never came.
Ottawa, wildly undermanned and desperate for NHL-caliber talent, will again be forced to fill the ranks with a trio of AHL call...
After tweaking his knee during the February 13th pregame skate in Pittsburgh, Milan Michalek is allegedly going to get a second opinion to determine whether or not surgery is needed. The winger has already missed three games because of the injury, but for what it’s worth, the Ottawa Sun’s Bruce Garrioch writes that the Senators do not expect Michalek to be out for long, should...
If you watch this video, how quickly does it take you to say " does Eugene Melnyk realize he employs Chris Neil?"
Would have loved to see someone mention Chris Neil and have Melnyk explain to the world how he is a clean player.
We realize Melnyk is upset. Karlsson puts people in the seats. He's the soon to be face of the franchise once Alfie retires...

Daniel Alfredsson's game-tying goal at 8:12 in the period broke one of the most dubious scoreless stretches in Ottawa Senators history, spanning 137:17 of game-time. And, it may have been the impetus Ottawa needed to best New Jersey in extra-time.
