Preview: Party at Patty’s Place as the Leafs take on the Sharks tonight

The Sharks would be in last place if the Western Conference didn’t include Arizona and Edmonton, how hard can this be?

Monday’s FTB: Leafs Off On A Californiacation

Monday’s FTB: Leafs Off On A Californiacation

Leafs head West, Penguins lose big again, and the Shipachyov has sailed. The Toronto Maple Leafs are starting their yearly California road trip. In the past it’s been a time of dread, of collapses and blowouts and of 18-wheelers falling off cliffs. But this year’s feels different. First, the Sharks and Ducks haven’t exactly been the powerhouses they have been in the past, nor have the Kings (relatively). Second, the Leafs are much better than they used to be. They might have had some defensive issues, but they’re just so gosh darn fun and exciting to watch. Auston Matthews and...

Mailbag: Auston Matthews and Other Conquerors

Mailbag: Auston Matthews and Other Conquerors

All that and more in this edition of the mailbag. It’s time for another edition of the mailbag. If Lou succeeds in revivifying Ancient Hittite warriors to play D, what kind of impact do you expect to see on our Zone Exit data?—not norm ullman As any hockey fan knows, the Hittite military was famed for its use of chariots. From the good people at weaponsandwarfare.com: The Hittite arm of decision was its chariotry. The chariot’s role was to close quickly with the enemy infantry, delivering maximum shock, then to dismount and fight as heavy infantry. This sounds fantastic. Guys who...

From the Branches: What would the Maple Leafs have as goal songs?

From the Branches: What would the Maple Leafs have as goal songs?

We take a stab at guessing, mostly to avoid thinking about last night. Yesterday, Sportsnet published an article about the Canucks’ use of personalized goal songs. On top of conveniently providing me with yet another metric through which to judge every Canuck, and a stellar quote from Max Pacioretty—“But, y’know, hockey is the old man sport”—it prompts the very real and important question of what individual Maple Leafs would choose as their goal songs. The only one I’m sure of is Auston Matthews, because duh, but I opened the question up to some of my fellow writers and got...

Carolina Hurricanes at Toronto Maple Leafs: Preview, Game Notes, How to Watch, Storm Advisory

The Hurricanes look to right the ship tonight against Auston Matthews and the Maple Leafs in Toronto. The Hurricanes have established themselves as a streaky team early on, winning two straight on the road early but then cooling off to hockey .500. The Hurricanes will face a tough test yet again tonight as they take on the second best team in the Eastern Conference in enemy territory. The club will need to find some consistent scoring presence if they want to pick up points and avoid falling below the midway line for the first time this season. Game Notes Tonight will be the...

Monday’s FTB: Loss To Sens + Signing Polak = Worst. Weekend. Ever

Monday’s FTB: Loss To Sens + Signing Polak = Worst. Weekend. Ever

This all happened because you don’t love Matthews enough. That’s right, I’m talking to you specifically! Well that was just awful. As if losing to the Ottawa Senators wasn’t bad enough in a game that was as boring as it was annoying, the Toronto Maple Leafs apparently decided that the way to rectify the situation was signing Roman Polak. I just want all of you loyal PPP commenters and lurkers to know that this is all your fault. This is the punishment for your sins. REPENT AND KNOW THE MERCY OF AUSTON MATTHEWS. Kevin wrote about the news of the signing here. Let’s get one thing...
