Saturday Night the Penguins faced off against the Toronto Maple Leafs. James Reimer managed to make 38 saves as he lead the Leafs to a 4-1 victory in Toronto. The first period was a tough exchange for who could get the most penalties. For the most part back and forth. There were also goals. The first was scored by Pittsburgh when Pittsburgh's fan favorite Kris Letang buried a snapshot behind Toronto net minder James Reimer. An assist would go to Evgeni Malkin. Go ahead, read the rest »

Penguins James Neal unlikely back for at least another week

The Pittsburgh Penguins are banged up all over, and won’t be getting James Neal back out on the ice for at least another week. As in, back out on the ice to practice—something that the top-six winger hasn’t done since October 3 when he was originally injured. The fear of some serious rink rust kicks in at that point. Being able to skate in a practice and being adjusted to...

Maple Leafs top Penguins

James Reimer wanted to keep things simple in his return. It had been a while since he started a game for the Toronto Maple Leafs. And his return came against Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and the potent Pittsburgh Penguins. ''Maybe there was some circumstances surrounding the game, but honestly I didn't really pay much attention to them or think about them much,'...

Kadri’s chance apparent with Bozak out

This is Nazem Kadri's opportunity. With Tyler Bozak expected to miss at least a week because of a lower-body injury, the Toronto Maple Leafs are counting on Kadri to fill his spot as the first-line centre between James van Riemsdyk and Phil Kessel. If Saturday night's showing against the Pittsburgh Penguins was any indication, Kadri is well-suited for that promotion, even...

Leafs’ Tyler Bozak out 7-10 days with lower-body injury

The Toronto Maple Leafs have another forward out of the lineup as Tyler Bozak will be out for the next 7-10 days with a lower body injury, as reported by Chris Johnston of Rogers Sportsnet.

Maple Leafs shut down Sidney Crosby and Penguins 4-1

For the Maple Leafs to beat the likes of Sidney Crosby, they must psyche themselves like Sidney Crosby. That was the message coach Randy Carlyle was pumping to his under-manned team before they met the NHL’s leading scorer, along with the equally dangerous Evgeni Malkin and the rest of the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday night. Staff and players were on the same page in the 4...
