Ottawa fans may have been thrilled to host the NHL All-Star Game last weekend, but that doesn’t mean they were about to embrace all the players in the game. The fans held true to their rivalry with Toronto by placing cutouts of Leafs all-stars Phil Kessel and Dion Phaneuf in the urinals. The move may not have been original, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t appreciated. The last time we saw it was when LeBron returned to Cleveland.
As long as no people or trees are being killed, I appreciate some healthy fan rivalries.

After some time off due to the All-Star break, the Toronto Maple Leafs return to action on Tuesday, travelling to Pittsburgh to start up a home-and-home series against the Penguins.
This is the second of four meetings between the two clubs this season. Toronto won the first match-up with a 4-3 victory at home on Oct. 29 in which Phil Kessel scored the game winner.

14:18: Another somewhat lucky break for the Pens as it seems Phil Kessel is off to the races, but he goes way offsides trying to catch the stretch pass from his D-man. Both teams have had good and bad moments these first few minutes.
from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, • The difference between the fiery Burke and most NHL GMs: Burke’s happiest when he has something to fight about. Last year, when Phil Kessel was the last pick in the all-star draft last year, Burke made all kinds of noise about the all-star process and his player being embarrassed and he shouted loudly for change. This year, the complete...
