Red Wings' roar back, then fall

TORONTO (AP) -- Joffrey Lupul scored at 7:10 of the third period to help the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Detroit Red Wings 4-3 after blowing a three-goal lead Saturday night. With the game looking to have slipped out of Toronto's control, Lupul grabbed a rare turnover from Henrik Zetterberg behind the net and lifted a shot over goalie Jimmy Howard for his 19th goal. More importantly...

Maple Leafs Look to Make it Three Straight vs. Red Wings

(Getty Images) By Lukas Hardonk (@LukasHardonk) The Toronto Maple Leafs are off to a hot start to the New Year, which is no surprise based on the team’s history of success between January 1 and the end of the regular season. With a victory tonight and a little bit of luck, the Leafs can get as high as fifth in the Eastern Conference, three points clear of the final playoff spot...

The Toronto Maple Wings?

On a slightly lighter note given that the NHL has all but declared war on the PA via their realignment press release (no hockey next October, folks? Ken Holland told the Free Press’s Helene St. James that he’s just as bummed out about this news as we are), given what Brian Burke had to say about the demise of the enforcer yesterday and Mike Babcock’s rebuttal thereof (which...

Red Wings-Maple Leafs wrap-up: Lesson unlearned, unearned

There are games you circle on your calendar once you find out the extenuating circumstances surrounding them, and Saturday’s incredibly inefficient 4-3 loss to Toronto, once I found out that the Wings had scheduled both the Fathers’ Trip and a personal tour of the Hockey Hall of Fame around Saturday’s and tonight’s game against Chicago (7:30 PM EST, NBC Sports Network/WXYT...

Three Straight Wins For Leafs

The fighter-scorer is as rare as the 40-goal scorer, and almost as valuable

While the waiving of Colton Orr may not have signified the end of the pure fighter, it certainly signified the beginning of the end. If Orr can't stick in Toronto, where I wouldn't be shocked to learn that GM Brian Burke has a "truculence" stencil on the wall behind his desk, there aren't many places left for guys like him. But don't think Orr's dismissal...
