For those of you who don’t follow the NHL, the Boston Bruins are currently playing the Toronto Maple Leafs in the first round of the playoffs (Boston is up 2-1 after winning last night, by the way). So in a not-too-clever take on the recent “Boston Strong” rallying cry, this Toronto fan mocked up (or bought?) this sign and ostensibly brought it to the arena.
Toronto Actually Cares About Hockey, So They Want To Turn The CN Tower Into ‘The World’s Biggest Goal Light’ For Maple Leafs Playoff Games
Betcha didn’t think there’d be much University of Michigan news today that had nothing to do with basketball. Guess again! The 2014 Winter Classic is being played at Michigan’s “Big House,” where the Red Wings and Maple Leafs will party like it’s 1959. Bring your hot cocoa, we’ve got more photos after the jump.
Frazer McLaren’s Maple Leafs defeated David Dziurzynski’s Senators 5-4 Wednesday night, but before the high-scoring contest really got going, McLaren and Dziurzynski erupted into fisticuffs less than half a minute into the game. Suffice it to say, McLaren added injury to insult to injury before the night was over.
theScore decided to interview some Raptors about their thoughts on the NHL Lockout, presumably wondering if the players were upset that Torontonians were actually noticing their existence and ridiculing their performance, rather than focusing all of their energy on the Leafs. Watch the video, if only for this gem of a quote: “It’s always good to be Mickaël Piétrus for one day. Always.”
During the second intermission of Saturday night’s Leafs-Senators game in Ottawa, just about the sweetest damn thing you’ll ever see in your life occurred. A Leafs fan named Alicia stood on the ice wearing a blindfold, removed it, was greeted by a big screen message from her girlfriend Christina (who is a Senators fan), and was then proposed to on the ice.
Brendan Burke, the son of Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Brian Burke and the brother of Philadelphis Flyers scout Patrick Burke, died tragically in a car accident in 2010. And since his death, his family has dedicated itself to continuing his best-known contribution to the hockey world – his attempts to combat homophobia within the sport.
We really can’t do any better than the YouTube description of this Brian McGrattan – Jay Rosehill fracas. Take it away, man on the internet: “Rosehill hangs in there and lands a few. McGrattan acts a FOOL and looks Possessed at the end there…”
Generally, when you hear about an athlete sustaining an injury that will keep them out for 2-3 weeks, you’re not inclined to think it’s a good thing. But when the injury in question looks as bad as the hockey-stick-to-the-eye the Flyers’ Chris Pronger sustained against the Maple Leafs last night, it changes your thinking a bit.
