Toronto Maple Leafs
Who’s ready to lift the Stanley Cup? Sean Hartnett gives you a full breakdown of the 2013 NHL Playoffs.
John Tavares had two goals and an assist Thursday as the New York Islanders rallied past Toronto 5-3 on Thursday and moved within two points of the Maple Leafs for fifth place in the Eastern Conference.
The past few weeks have made it blindingly clear that Devils head coach Pete DeBoer is stuck with a group of players who collectively have the skill, but not the talent required to reach the playoffs.
James Reimer made 31 saves, and Phil Kessel snapped a scoreless tie late in the third period to lift the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 2-0 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Monday night, despite recording only 12 shots.
Mats Zuccarello’s overtime-winning shootout goal could go a long way in determining how high the Rangers finish in the Eastern Conference.
Mats Zuccarello scored the lone goal in the shootout, and the New York Rangers overcame another two-goal performance by Toronto’s Phil Kessel to beat the Maple Leafs 3-2 on Wednesday night.
Phil Kessel scored twice to lead the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 4-3 win over the New York Rangers on Monday night to open an important home-and-home series between the Eastern Conference rivals.
Rookie Leo Komarov and Tyler Bozak scored and the Toronto Maple Leafs extended the reeling New Jersey Devils’ losing streak to six games with a 2-1 victory on Saturday night.
Nazem Kadri continued his points streak Monday with a goal and an assist in the Toronto Maple Leafs’ 4-2 victory over the struggling New Jersey Devils.
Nazem Kadri was remarkably calm for a player who scored his first career hat trick. He was more excited that the Maple Leafs forged an overtime win on the road.
Marc Staal scored the tying goal early in the third period, then Marian Gaborik scored the game-winner late to rally the Rangers to a 5-2 win over the Maple Leafs.
New York (1-3-0) is off to a poor start, though, and fell to previously winless Philadelphia 2-1 on Thursday.
Matt Moulson and Michael Grabner scored two goals each, and the New York Islanders rallied for a 7-4 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday night.
The Winter Classic is dead this year, but as the NHL buries its most popular regular-season event there is hope that the lockout won’t wipe out the entire season.
It won’t come as a shock to hockey fans. A person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press that the NHL has cancelled the 2013 Winter Classic at Michigan Stadium.
