SIMMONS: Is a 50-goal season even possible for Leafs’ Matthews?

Can Auston Matthews score 35 goals in his final 53 games to become the first Maple Leafs centre to net 50 in an NHL season? It isn’t out of the question. No Leaf has ever scored more at centre than Darryl Sittler’s 45 goals in 1978. That record came at a time when NHL teams […]

Saturday FTB: Leafs face the polar opposite of a trap game

Hey there Willy, what’s Ursine? After picking up their first loser point of the year against Detroit, the Toronto Maple Leafs take on one of their major rivals — the Boston Bruins. Boston hasn’t had as much success as you’d expect so far this year, even with David Pastrnak among the league leaders in goals. Amazing what losing your star center can do to your fortunes. What’s that? The Leafs had Auston Matthews miss 14 games and Nylander for 28 games and still have the second best record in the league? Guess when you actually build a team full of talent outside of one line,...

But how it really wasn’t a demotion for Kapanen, because it meant that he would be playing on the third line with Nazem Kadri, who’s 30-goal scorer, and […]
