They Blew It and It’s Official, No Playoffs: Lightning 2 Leafs 0:

Utter disappointment. That’s the only way I can describe the way I feel right now. I never enjoy when the Leafs officially get eliminated, but I’ve learned to get used to it. In my short lifetime, the Leafs have only made the playoffs 7 times, but I’ve been fully aware of what was going on for only 4, maybe 5 playoffs. Besides last year, the last time the Leafs made the playoffs I was in first grade. That is really...

Leafs Weekend Review: No Hope

When I die I want the Maple Leafs to be my pallbearer, so they can let me down one last time.   Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse…well…yeah it got worse. The Leafs drop their 7th then 8th straight games in regulation, which is a longer losing streak since 2009-10 when they lost 7 in a row in regulation. Oh, and who were the goalies in that stretch? Vesa Toskala, Jonas Gustavsson, and, wait for...

The Leafs were dominated from the start of the game, but struck first on a Joffrey Lupul goal, off a great mid-air pass from Nazem...

What Happened To The Leafs?

It was just six games ago that James Reimer stopped 31 of 31 shots in relief for Bernier to help the Leafs beat LA 3-2. Fast forward six games; Reimer is pulled after letting in a very saveable shot from the point, and Drew MacIntyre, straight out of the AHL, replaces him in midst of a four game  losing streak. At the end of the night the Leafs would lose, making their losing streak five straight, and lowering their *playoff chances...

California Swing and Washington: Leafs’ Week Recap

So the Leafs have gone 2-2 so far in the hardest road trip of the year, including two wins against California teams. Not bad, not bad. Game 1: Tor 3, Ana 1 - The Leafs were out-shot 44-23, but Bernier put the team on his back and carried the Leafs to victory. In the first period on the power play, Tyler Bozak tipped in a shot from Phaneuf to make it 1-0. Shortly after, Kessel beat Frederik Anderson on a breakaway to make it 2-0. Phil...
