The Leafs' depth chart at center against the San Jose Sharks was Tyler Bozak, Trevor Smith, Leo Komarov, and Sam Carrick. They lost. Tomas Hertl opened the goal scoring - the Leafs lasted seven whole minutes. Logan Couture with a power play goal. Nice spin move, to get space and
The Maple Leafs brought their A game to Buffalo tonight, amassing almost as many shots in the first two periods as Buffalo put up in the first 20 minutes. But alas, the Sabres were a tank on a mission, giving up two goals in the first period and the game

The Toronto Maple Leafs have traded Cody Franson and Mike Santorelli to Nashville for Nashville's 2015 first round pick, prospect Brendan Leipsic, and Olli Jokinen.

The Toronto Maple Leafs fell to the LA Kings, but actually managed to keep the game close throughout - it was a one-goal game 'til the empty netter, and the Leafs held the Kings to the second fewest shots against since 1987 (and the fewest since 2001). Your game in
I was going to write about Horachek's first game, but it got away from the Leafs so quickly that it felt like one game wasn't enough to see or say much at all. The Leafs started off in a whole new era of line-blending for Wednesday's loss against the Caps,
When it came to scoring, Mike Santorelli opened the scoring in the second on a nice give-and-go with James Van Riemsdyk - then it was all Winnipeg - T.J. Galiardi, Matt Halischuk, Dustin Byfuglien, Bryan Little, and Ben Chiarot. When it came to possession, it started with Winnipeg and

Jonathon Bernier stood strong on 40 of 42 shots while the Leafs managed to convert six of their 27 on two different goalies. Tyler Bozak, Joffrey Lupul, David Booth, and Nazem Kadri each scored one for the Leafs while Phil Kessel lit the lamp twice. The Ducks got a short
The Toronto Maple Leafs played the Vancouver Canucks last night, and managed to rack up five goals on two goalies.

The Leafs didn't have much of an answer for superstar Evgeni Malkin and linemate Blake Comeau, but after an ugly opening goal, the Leafs made a game of it.
The Senators took the lead three times tonight, on goals from Mike Hoffman, Kyle Turris, and Mark Stone, but the Leafs would win out with goals from Peter Holland, James Van Riemsdyk, Josh Leivo, a short handed goal from Mike Santorelli, and an insurance goal from David Clarkson (a tip
It's the Late, Late Game with the Toronto Maple Leafs visitng the Avs tonight - puck drop is at 9:00 EST. Who starts in net? Who plays well? Who plays poorly? Tune in to find out. Jake Marchment f*cked up A strong take on the Kings' prospect's decisions.
The Leafs beat Columbus last night - which you know, since you've read the recap. The team will turn around and play Chicago tonight, with Reimer expected to get the start. Read some links and hold on to your butts. Woe is Leafs, Lupul out indefinitely with broken bone in
