Tim Tebow-mania knows no bounds. It's spread across the border into Canada and it's even made the jump into hockey.

To celebrate after scoring, he dropped to...

After the game, Phaneuf said that he didn't mean to board Kassian. The Sabres were expecting NHL Czar of Discipline, Brendan Shanahan, to review the Phaneuf hit. Lindy Ruff mentioned in his post game presser...

The Maple Leafs did not take advantage of two struggling teams over the weekend and now face a must-win scenario if they want to stay in a playoff position in the Eastern Conference.
On Friday, Buffalo came into the game losing three of their last four, but a disastrous Toronto second period fueled by 23 minutes in penalties and three Sabres power play goals led to a 5-4 defeat...
James Reimer turned aside 40 shots to lift the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 3-2 win over the Buffalo Sabres.
It's not surprising to see Canadian pop idol Justin Bieber filming promos for Hockey Night in Canada with Toronto's Dion Phaneuf.

Toronto Maple Leafs’ James Reimer and Buffalo Sabres’ Ryan Miller both got shelved for a bit this season as victims of goalie crashing.
Brian Gionta collided with Reimer while Milan Lucic barreled through Miller in open ice. It would have been a shame if Jimmy Howard of the Detroit Red Wings came out seriously injured after last night.
