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

Game 42 Scoring Chances: Maple Leafs 5 vs. Blue Jackets 2

The Toronto Maple Leafs had their first victory in the post-Carlyle era, as a great opening period powered them past the Columbus Blue Jackets. In that twenty minutes, they went out to a 4-1 lead...

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...

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...

GDT: Game #24, Toronto Maple Leafs vs Dallas Stars (7:30pm, TSN4)
