from Kevin McGran of the Toronto Star, It’s morning. Time to shoot some pucks. Out walk Clarke MacArthur and John-Michael Liles, to a $100,000 contraption that will let them do just that. Gone are the days of shooting pucks and denting the garage. Or putting up the fake goalie in the net with the five holes clearly marked. In this day and age of high tech and every advantage money can buy for a sports team, the Maple Leafs have given their players a new toy: A gadget called RapidShot. Like the batting cage has done for baseball for years — automated thrown balls so a hitter can practise — this machine passes pucks to shooters. continued

Maple Leafs goalie Ben Scrivens posts picture of nasty bruise on Twitter

Being an NHL goalie isn’t without it’s problems.  Toronto Maple Leafs goalie Ben Scrivens posted a picture of a nasty bruise on his arm on Twitter on Monday and it is impressive.  Scrivens was pulled after two periods against the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday when he gave up four goals and the Maple Leafs ended up losing to Winnipeg in a shootout 5-4.  It’s not clear whether...

Toronto Maple Leafs: The losing skid continues

The Toronto Maple Leafs have now lost five straight games and are barely hanging on to a playoff spot after losing to Pittsburgh and Winnipeg. I was very disappointed at the result of the game against the Penguins.  They were a little over two minutes away in the third period of getting a single point, but Sidney Crosby and company scored two unanswered goals to win it 3-1. Tyler...

Tyler Bozak throws incredible cross-ice backhand sauce pass to set up Phil Kessel goal

This is as pretty of a pass as you will ever see.  Almost six minutes into the third period, the Toronto Maple Leafs were trailing the Winnipeg Jets 4-3 when Maple Leafs forward Tyler Bozak threw this incredible pass.  This backhand cross-ice saucer pass was just out of the reach of Jets defenseman Ron Hainsey’s reach and landed perfectly on Phil Kessel’s stick.  Kessel then...

Mike Augello: Rielly To Join Marlies

As has been expected for the last few weeks, the Maple Leafs have assigned defenseman Morgan Rielly to the Toronto Marlies of the AHL with the end of his junior season. “He will join the Marlies this week on the road.” Leafs Assistant GM Dave Poulin indicated this morning on FAN 590’s Brady and Lang show. Rielly, who turned 19 years old last week, was selected...

Colton Orr destroys Chris Thorburn in heavyweight fight

After Colton Orr (6’3″ 222 lbs) and Chris Thorburn (6’3″ 210 lbs) mixed it up during the Toronto Maple Leafs-Winnipeg Jets game on March 12th, they went for round 2 on Saturday night.  Unfortunately for Thorburn, like round 1, Colton Orr tuned him up.  The best punch was thrown at about the 36 second mark by Orr.  He worked his arm inside and Thorburn could do nothing...

Evander Kane turns down Korbinian Holzer’s fight offer, Zach Bogosian accepts

This was a pretty interesting series of events.  Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Korbinian Holzer and Winnipeg Jets forward Evander Kane were pushing and shoving in the corner and it looked like that they might fight.  Kane knew Holzer was bigger than him and declined Holzer’s attempt to fight.  Holzer had already thrown his gloves off and started to awkwardly pick his equipment...

Lightning-Maple Leafs Preview

The slumping Toronto Maple Leafs haven't been able to get things together over the last two weeks. The Tampa Bay Lightning, meanwhile, are starting to pick up steam. The Maple Leafs try to snap a season-worst five-game losing streak Wednesday night when they host the Lightning, who continue to play without captain Vincent Lecavalier. After allowing an average of just 2.5 goals...
