Maple Leafs set up camp in the offensive zone and dominate the Wild

John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports A great win on the front end of a back to back for the Leafs First Period [19:42] Tyson Barrie makes a pretty awful pass to the middle of his own defensive zone that Marcus Foligno thankfully doesn’t doing anything with. [19:25] Not to be outdone, Ryan Suter barfs the puck up to John Tavares, who passes to a streaking (just-got-on-the-ice) Nylander who is stopped on a breakaway. The Leafs do get a power play out of it, as Suter goes to the box. [18:37] The Leafs top unit power play has a solid minute of zone pressure thanks to some puck recoveries...

Thursday’s FTB: Ilya Mikheyev scores his first goal and assist as a Leaf, Timashov and Sandin also get points

Photo by Kevin Sousa/NHLI via Last night’s season opener was great once we got past the first period. The Toronto Maple Leafs began the John Tavares captaincy with a win over the Ottawa Senators last night. As great as that feeling is, it also featured two Leafs rookies getting their first points in the NHL. First, Dmytro Timashov got an assist on Frederik Gauthier’s goal: Then Ilya Mikheyev and Rasmus sandin got their first points as they assisted Trevor Moore; I guess they’ll have to cut that puck in half. Finally, as the Leafs were up 4-2 Tyson Barrie set up Mikheyev for his...

He shoots, he scores — but the Leafs’ Tyson Barrie knows his defensive game needs work

Barrie has notched 14 goals and close to 60 points in each of the last two seasons, among the NHL’s elite producers, but he was also a workhorse on Avalanche teams that, like the Leafs, were outshot far too often and didn’t block enough of them.
