Sportsnet Ontario flexed their creative muscle during the Carolina Hurricanes / Toronto Maple Leafs game on Monday night. Midway through the second period, Carolina led the Maple Leafs by a score of 2-1 thanks to goals from Jordan Staal and his brother Eric.  As the station prepared to go to break (or returned from break, we're not sure), they opted to run a slightly modified, slightly more creative graphic. Staal Brothers 2, Toronto 1.  Hockey fans were quick to note that perhaps Sportsnet and all the other NHL broadcasters should run a separate graphic that lists a score for the officials/referees. Can't say we blame them. The officials have had a hand in the outcome of an overwhelming number of games this season.  Credit to Reddit Hockey for posting this image.  [follow]

Hurricanes recall Tim Wallace, assign Zac Dalpe to Charlotte

The Hurricanes made a surprising move today by deciding to send down forward Zac Dalpe to the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League and recall Tim Wallace. Dalpe had two points in six games and is the only forward on the team who can go to the AHL without needing waivers, so he was sent down in favor of Tim Wallace who could possibly add some grit to the team. Wallace...

Game 8 Preview: Hurricanes at Maple Leafs

Carolina Hurricanes at Toronto Maple Leafs 7 p.m., Air Canada Centre TV: FS-Carolinas, SportsNet-Ontario Starting this long road trip with a 5-3 loss to an injury-depleted Flyers team on Saturday night probably wasn't what the Hurricanes had in mind, so they will look to turn things around tonight against the Toronto Maple Leafs. That loss to the Flyers was yet another...

Phil Kessel is afraid of the puck

A puck was shot towards the bench area and Toronto Maple Leafs forward Phil Kessel had a priceless reaction.  I can’t blame him for flinching, it was just the way he went about it that makes this absolutely hysterical.  It was like he was completely shocked that he didn’t get hit and wasn’t ready to let his guard down.[The Score] 

Toronto Maple Leafs:Phil Kessel’s Woes Continue

The Toronto Maple Leafs have had quite a week winning two games and losing a close one on the weekend.  After watching these games I realized two things.  One, Buffalo’s net minder, Ryan Miller can be beaten, two no matter how hard he tries, Phil Kessel can not seem to score  a goal, not even an empty netter.  He now has 36 shots on net and no goals to show for it.   He did...

But goal waved off after it was reviewed, kicking motion.       added 9:16pm, via the Situation Room Blog at NHL.com, At 18:44 of the second period in the Hurricanes/Maple Leafs game, video review determined that Toronto forward Tyler Bozak directed the puck into the net with his right skate.

No, An Intern Won’t Get Fired For This Staal Brothers Vs. Maple Leafs Stunt & More Screencapping Fun!

Congrats to the Maple Leafs broadcast network for pulling this Staal Brothers (Jordan & Eric) 2, Maple Leafs 1 stunt during last night’s game. The Hurricanes would win, 4-2, but the Leafs shutout the Staal’s in the 3rd period.  Some call that a moral victory. Speaking of hockey, would you buy a soft pretzel shaped like the Stanley Cup? Of course you would. Would you buy...

Game 7 Scoring Chances: Hurricanes at Flyers

Once again, the Hurricanes were involved in a game where they were playing from behind and ended up having a huge lead in shots and scoring chances partially because of it. Don't get me wrong, Carolina having an advantage in shots and scoring chances for yet another game is a good thing in the long-run, but it's still very early in the year and I'm not sure how much stock...

Game 8 Scoring Chances: Hurricanes at Maple Leafs

The Hurricanes have been a pretty decent team at even strength so far this year but their underlying numbers are skewed heavily due to the fact that they have been forced to play from behind in all but two of their games. This is partially the reason why they have outchanced their opponents in every game this year and why most of their players have very positive underlying numbers...

Maple Leafs-Capitals Preview

The Toronto Maple Leafs just can't get the job done at home. It's been a different story on the road. Toronto looks to match its best road start since 1998-99 on Tuesday night when it faces the slumping Washington Capitals for the second time in less than a week. After picking up their first home points of the season on Thursday with a 3-2 win over Washington (2-6-1), the...

Canes rally back to defeat Maple Leafs 4-1

Tonight's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs provided the Hurricanes with a chance to get back to .500 and give the team some positive vibes as they continue this long road trip. It looked like they could be in for another long game as Carolina got off to the worst start imaginable in the first 20 minutes. The Canes were stuck in their own zone for about 60% of the frame, couldn...

How Important is O'Reilly to the Avs?
