Found October 07, 2013 on HockeyBuzz:
One of the slightly amusing things stemming from Ottawa's 5-4 shootout loss to Toronto was Paul MacLean's objection to Mason Raymond's spin-o-rama attempt and goal. Since both of Toronto's shooters scored, and both of Ottawa's shooters missed, the story got sort of buried in the post-game -- at least until the Ottawa Sun and the NHL spoke with the team. Courtesy the OS, the basis of confusion:...

Dave Bolland giving Maple Leafs good value

There was something in Dave Bolland’s eyes that told Jon MacWilliams the kid would be a pretty good hockey player. Bolland had been cut from other novice and minor atom AAA teams in the GTHL but when he played for the North York Rangers the head coach took him under his wing and helped him develop. “He wasn’t a very good skater but he had this look in his eyes” MacWilliams...

Maple Leafs beat Senators 5-4 in shootout

Mason Raymond and Tyler Bozak scored shootout goals to give Toronto a 5-4 victory over the Ottawa Senators in the Maple Leafs' home opener Saturday night. Toronto goalie Jonathan Bernier, outstanding in relief of James Reimer, stopped Milan Michalek - whose shot hit the crossbar and bounced out - and Jason Spezza in the shootout. Raymond, on a nifty turnaround backhand, and...

Questioning The Spin-O-Rama Move

from Wayne Scanlan of Senators Extra, Senators head coach Paul MacLean was surprised to see Mason Raymond’s spin move allowed in Toronto’s shootout win over Ottawa. “I was on a conference call at the start of the year with all the other coaches and was informed at that time that that play would be seriously reviewed and you were taking a chance it would be an illegal...

Maple Leafs general manager Dave Nonis has been released from the hospital after feeling sick during Saturday night's game. The team says the 47-year-old executive spent the night in the hospital.

HockeyBuzz Hotstove: Hotstove: Who Impresses You?

The season's just a week old, but I already find myself fascinated with some early-season performances. In some instances, it's really just expectation based -- I was unsure of how a player like Mason Raymond would look with his injury history, for example, and have been blown away by his skating ability and fit in the Maple Leafs lineup. Raymond's game is predicated...

Leafs beat Sens in shootout

Toronto coach Randy Carlyle knows the Maple Leafs' 3-0 record is a lot prettier than their play. "Coaches aren't here to cut up wins. Let's not over-analyze," Carlyle said Saturday night after a 5-4 shootout victory over Ottawa in the Maple Leafs' home opener. "We didn't play to the level we're capable of playing. It was more a hockey game...

Toronto Maple Leafs are 3-0

Toronto come back from a 4-2 deficit to win 5-4 in a shoot-out against Ottawa. The Toronto Maple Leafs are off  to a great start after winning their first three games of the season. Toronto’s latest victory was a  5-4 shoot-out win over the Ottawa Senators. The Leafs came back from a 4-2 deficit. Toronto’s starting goalie, James Reimer was pulled in second period after the...

Maple Leafs GM taken to Toronto hospital during Saturday’s game.

Maple Leafs general manager Dave Nonis was taken to the hospital after feeling “unwell” during Saturday night’s game, according to a team spokesman. Nonis was feeling sick during the second period and saw team physicians at Air Canada Centre. “As a precaution, (Nonis) was asked to go to the hospital for further testing,” a Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment statement...

Avalanche-Maple Leafs Preview

Though the Toronto Maple Leafs are undefeated, they're still figuring out who is the best option for them in goal. Jonathan Bernier will likely get the start over James Reimer when the Leafs host a more well-known goaltender, Patrick Roy, in his first visit as coach of the Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday night. Bernier made 32 saves in a 3-1 win at Philadelphia on Wednesday....

Mike Augello: Leafs Overcome Disorganized “D” In Comeback Win Over Ottawa

The Toronto Maple Leafs had their share of struggles in the season opener against the Ottawa Senators, but rallied from a 4-2 second period deficit to win a 5-4 shootout victory at Air Canada Center Saturday night. Mason Raymond scored a goal and two assists in regulation and a spin-o-rama goal in the shootout to lead the Leafs to their third victory of the season. Nazem Kadri...

Leafs to start goalie Jonathan Bernier against Colorado Avalanche

Jonathan Bernier will start in goal Tuesday night when the Maple Leafs face the Colorado Avalanche and put their undefeated 3-0 record on the line. The Leafs — whose sterling record is tainted by an NHL-leading 50 turnovers so far — will be making a game-time decision on centre Jay McLement who was with his wife who went into labour. McLement one of the club’s most reliable...

Avalanche remains unbeaten by beating Maple Leafs 2-1

Three games into its season the Avalanche already has accomplished something it didn't all of last season in a 48-game lockout-shortened year: win three in a row. Tuesday night in Toronto the Avs of 2013-14 accomplished something it has never done since moving to Denver: get out to a 3-0 start. Hard as it is to believe for a team with two Stanley Cups on its shelf since 1995...

Travis Yost: Toronto Victorious in the Shootout

The Toronto Maple Leafs erased a 4-2 second-period deficit, and proceeded to pick up the extra point in the shootout courtesy Mason Raymond and Tyler Bozak. With the win, the Maple Leafs remain undefeated on the season (3-0-0). The performance on Ottawa's end could more or less be divided by two sides: those who played on the Kyle Turris line, and those who did not. I thought...

Colin Campbell issues a stern reubuttal to Paul MacLean

Ottawa Senators coach Paul MacLean was not amused by Toronto Maple Leafs forward Mason Raymond's spin-o-rama, snow-and-score goal against Craig Anderson, and I guess this falls under the, "Ask a prickly question, receive an equally grumpy answer" category. NHL senior VP of hockey operations Colin Campbell replied to MacLean's, "Should this be allowed?"...
