[Tuesday's FTB] Shakin' It Up

The Leafs' first line will look a lot different heading into tonight's game against the Sabres. According to James Mirtle of The Globe & Mail, Nazem Kadri and Joffrey Lupul will accompany Phil Kessel on the Leafs' top line tonight, in an effort by Randy Carlyle to shake up his team after a terrible outing against the Bruins. On Saturday night, Kadri's line was the only trio to pose much of an offensive threat to the Bruins' defence, and let's face it, he's always looked like a better C than Tyler Bozak. There's an argument to be made that the team is better off maintaining a dangerous...

[Wednesday FTB] Phil the Thrill Lives Up to His Name

Some links to read in between watching gifs of the Kessel goal. I never get tired of watching Phil Kessel, god among men, working his magic in the Leafs jersey. Last night's overtime-winning goal against the Colorado Avalanche, when Tyson Barrie was eating his dust as he shot one through Semyon Varlamov's five-hole, was exactly the kind of show that we have come to expect from Phillip Kessel.
