On the night that the Leafs organization honored the 1963 Stanley Cup Champions, Toronto shut out the Senators 3-0.  A perfect end for a special night. Ben Scrivens got his first NHL shut out against Ottawa Leaf’s goaltender, Ben Scrivens was amazing between the pipes, making a total of 34 saves and recorded his first NHL shut out.  He was the reason the Leafs were able to hold on to their one goal lead in the second period.  Toronto played somewhat sloppy during the period, giving up a substantial amount of shots.  Leaf’s head coach, Randy Carlyle noted that his team tried to be too cute with their plays in the second (period).

How do you ‘honor’ a legend’s number if he may not show up to attend the ceremony?

The Toronto Sun's Steve Simmons believes that the Toronto Maple Leafs need to retire Dave Keon's #14 while Maple Leafs legend is still around, but as Simmons notes in his Sunday column, Keon's status as estranged from the Leafs' former and current ownership regimes complicates the situation significantly: The name is missing from the rafters.

The terrible Tyler Bozak

Ok, let me justify that headline a little before people get all over me.  He isn’t completely terrible as in he shouldn’t be in the league terrible.  He’s just a terrible first line center, and probably not a very good second or third line center either (at least not until he improves defensively).
