HBO 24/7: Leafs / Red Wings Episode #2 Best Clips


In a far more entertaining second episode of 24/7, both clubs are mired in the frustration of losing too many games, with the respective head coaches serving as the central characters. A furious Mike Babcock sends an HBO cameraman scurrying out of the Wings dressing room. During Randy Carlyle’s outburst, the Toronto cameraman has the foresight to tape through a half-closed door rather than standing in the middle of the maelstrom.

Among the must-see Leaf-related moments:

Carlyle peels paint:
The first proper freak out by Carlyle of the 24/7 series came down 3-0 at the second intermission versus Florida. Wow.

Here was Carlyle at about 75% pissed off when the team was down 1-0 to Pittsburgh after 1:

We can’t stop:
Entered the 24/7 series hoping to see Jake Gardiner dance shirtless to Miley Cyrus? Here you go:

Dion vs. Phil ping pong match.
Talk about a role reversal: Dion is the forehand sniper and Kessel is good at defence.

Leafs vs. Penguins:
Dion and Sid have a who-hit-who argument at center ice.

A few Monday morning Leafs links…

The Leaf rollercoaster continues
Another Leaf lead evaporates late in the game on Saturday.

Nazem Kadri facing great challenges and getting less luck
From Jonas Siegel.

James Reimer wasn’t happy about getting pulled
He deserved the yank on Saturday. Makes you wonder if the reaction was more a culmination of how he feels he’s been treated this season.

    Hope everyone is safe during the horrible bit of weather Ontario and Eastern Canada  has faced the last couple of days. We dodged a bit of a bullet here last night as the freezing rain wasn’t a bad as expected and most of the storm has now passed through the area.

    Burtonboy London is 2 hours west of Toronto so we were really lucky to miss this weekend’s storm. Last weekend, we got a minor storm and the Brampton, Mississauga corridor got the brunt of it. Caused me to cancel my trip to watch the Leafs play Chicago.  :(    Better to be safe and sound.  Hope all our MLHSers are doing okay and I hope Bon got to his cabin safely.

    We get the Rangers on the 2nd nite of a a back to back. Talbot played last nite and Rangerss has good win over Minny. Does Talbot start again or to we get a struggling King Henry.?
    We need to start the game with both feet on the gas
    Orr will probably dress if only to keep brian Boyle honest
    Will it ever stop snowing?

    I’m beginning to wonder if there is a center other then Bozak that could play well with Kessel. If you look at the way he plays he’s more like Paul Kariya who once he crossed the blue line he plays like a center. Kessel is as much playmaker as he is a shooter and likes to have the puck on his stick in Ozone . Grabo didn’t work ,Holland didn’t appear to mesh all that well and neither does Kadri from the looks of it .

    Zep2  Morning Zep, We can take the Rangers, no matter who is in the Net, and that is a Wild Card team that we may be competing with for the last playoff spot. These 2 points in Regulation is huge !
