Frederik Andersen Playing To Win For Toronto Maple Leafs

Frederik Andersen Playing To Win For Toronto Maple Leafs

There are many similarities between last season's first-round matchup between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins.  There are many differences too. Frederik Andersen playing at the top of his game is just one of those differences. The Maple Leafs added John Tavares in the offseason and Jake Muzzin just before the trade deadline. Those two additions have been undeniably a major reason the Maple Leafs find themselves up 3-2 heading back to Toronto for Game Six. Frederik Andersen Playing To Win Tavares' presence is especially important as Nazem Kadri sits in the press box after earning...

Two late goals, defensive excellence propel Maple Leafs to victory in Game 5

BOSTON – The Maple Leafs are one win away from facing the Columbus Blue Jackets. That has to have a nice ring in the ears of Leafs Nation. In a tight defensive battle that conjured memories of past playoff battles between the Leafs and New Jersey Devils, the Leafs scored the first goal of Game […]

Maple Leafs: It’s Time to Sweat the Small Stuff

The Toronto Maple Leafs must find a way to win games. Game 4 of the series against the Boston Bruins showed more of what we have seen from them all season. There is a lack of character, especially now that Nazem Kadri is suspended. Intestinal fortitude must be widespread. Also missing is an attention to […] The post Maple Leafs: It’s Time to Sweat the Small Stuff appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

Toronto Maple Leafs Mad Libs Game 4 Review and Recap

The Toronto Maple Leafs played the Boston Bruins last night in game three of their first round series. The Toronto Maple Leafs are in tough to pull this series off without Nazem Kadri, although I must say, it doesn’t feel like the huge blow that it did last year.  Perhaps John Tavares is the reason […] Toronto Maple Leafs Mad Libs Game 4 Review and Recap - Editor In Leaf - Editor In Leaf - A Toronto Maple Leafs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Bad luck for Brown in Leafs loss

Nazem Kadri’s suspension made him disappear for the Maple Leafs-Bruins playoff series, which meant Connor Brown was going to be pushed towards the front of the stage. Often the hardest-working Leaf on the ice, Brown was promoted to the third line as William Nylander shifted to centre with Patrick Marleau. But the hockey gods in […]

Vancouver Canucks: Should they trade for Nazem Kadri?

Many believe Nazem Kadri is playing out his final season with the Toronto Maple Leafs. Should the Vancouver Canucks try and acquire the 28-year-old? Vancouver Canucks general manager Jim Benning has never been in position to trade for established veterans, instead having to focus on rebuilding this team with young talent. But with plenty of […] Vancouver Canucks: Should they trade for Nazem Kadri? - The Canuck Way - The Canuck Way - A Vancouver Canucks Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Wednesday Playoffs Open Thread: Do the Blue Jackets want the Leafs or Bruins next?

The CBJ await their next opponent With the top-seeded Tampa Bay Lightning dead and buried and loose dirt swept over the grave with an especially strong broom, the Columbus Blue Jackets now await the winner of the Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Boston Bruins series. Toronto leads the series 2-1 and will host the Bruins in Game 4 tonight. Nazem Kadri has been suspended for the rest of the series and a Bruins win tonight would guarantee the series goes at least six games, a welcome development for a Blue Jackets squad who could use their next opponent banging on each other some more. Who do the Blue...

Toronto Maple Leafs: If You Lose Big, Don’t Overreact

The Toronto Maple Leafs are a 100 point, seventh overall team that under-achieved in the regular season. If you consider that the Toronto Maple Leafs played 29 games without one of Nazem Kadri, Freddie Andersen or Auston Matthews in the line-up (35% of the season), then they probably did better than they should have. Additionally, […] Toronto Maple Leafs: If You Lose Big, Don’t Overreact - Editor In Leaf - Editor In Leaf - A Toronto Maple Leafs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Toronto Maple Leafs: Kadri’s suspension puts their depth to the test

After crosschecking Jake DeBrusk in the head, Nazem Kadri got suspended for the rest of the series which will put the Toronto Maple Leafs’ depth to the test. After getting John Tavares in the summer, the Toronto Maple Leafs became one of the deepest offensive teams in the league.

Rosie DiManno: Nylander frustrates Leafs and fans sometimes, but looks can be deceiving

Rosie DiManno: Nylander frustrates Leafs and fans sometimes, but looks can be deceiving

William Nylander’s effortless skating can make his game seem too easy, but his Game 3 performance — at centre in place of Nazem Kadri — was the kind of all-around effort that could go a long way in these playoffs, Rosie DiManno writes.

Maple Leafs’ depth, Nylander must stay on current path with Kadri suspended

The loss of Nazem Kadri until the second round of the 2019 Stanley Cup playoffs — provided the Maple Leafs advance — will be less of a problem if the Leafs’ depth players continue on the path they took in Game 3. The fourth line of Frederik Gauthier between Trevor Moore and Tyler Ennis was […]
