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 went in and broke out a nice backhand-forehand deke and fired one high glove past Ondrej Pavelec.  The goal was nice and tied the game, but that pass was incredible.  The Winnipeg Jets ended up winning the game in a 10-round shootout.

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.

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...

Shooting Practice

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...

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...
