GDT: Game #44, Toronto Maple Leafs at Anaheim Ducks (10 p.m., SNO)

GDT: Game #42, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Columbus Blue Jackets (7:30 p.m., TSN4)

Reasonably happy with the team's possession performance versus the Capitals, Peter Horachek's message will be to stick with it while cracking down on some of the avoidable errors of last game. The Leafs will also need...

GDT: Game #36, Toronto Maple Leafs vs Florida Panthers (5 p.m., SNO)

Game 28 Scoring Chances: Maple Leafs 2 vs. Red Wings 1 (SO)

The Toronto Maple Leafs had one of the worst chance performances I've seen, almost as bad as the game that Buffalo played against them in October. Toronto were out-chanced 19-3 at ES after two periods,...

Game Review: Game #27, Toronto Maple Leafs 4 vs. Calgary Flames 1

If you're Randy Carlyle, in terms of process, you're probably only really happy with the middle 20 minutes in this game (and of course Jonathan Bernier's performance). That sounds bizarre after a 4-1 win, but...

Game Review: Game #22, Pittsburgh Penguins 4 vs. Toronto Maple Leafs 3 (OT)

A point out of a visit with the league's best and highest-scoring team (15-4-2 with a +27 goal differential after this win) is something any team in the League will take, no questions asked. Especially if you...

GDT: Game #19, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Nashville Predators (7:30 p.m., TSN4)

The Maple Leafs are looking for a bounce-back game after hitting the lowest point of their season so far, a blowout loss to league laughingstock the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday night. The Predators are one of...
