Why Randy Carlyle should play Jake Gardiner

The Leafs have a chance for a little more of this.

Randy Carlyle has a fascinating choice to make in light of the series-ending injury incurred by Mike Kostka.

Carlyle can insert Jake Gardiner or Ryan O’Byrne into the lineup.

Certainly, O’Byrne has played more. Acquired at the trade deadline exactly for this kind of situation, O’Byrne last played April 24 against Tampa, a week after Gardiner.

The six-foot-five O’Byrne has played 308 NHL games and 19 post-season contests which, you should know is 19 more than the 22-year-old Gardiner.

That said, Carlyle should go with Gardiner.

The Leafs have a chance for a little ...

Franson, Kessel Practice Ahead Of Game Two

group488may3

The Leafs welcomed Phil Kessel and Cody Franson back to practice a day head of Game 2 in Boston (7pm CBC, Sportsnet FAN590).

Both missed practice Thursday but are good to go Saturday.

Franson spoke with the media and said “I’m fine and ready to go tomorrow.”

Here is how the Leafs lines looked:

Lupul-Bozak-Kessel
van Riemsdyk-Grabovski-Kulemin
Komarov-Kadri-Hamilton
MacArthur-McClement-Orr
Frattin-Colborne-McLaren

It also appears that Jake Gardiner will draw back in the line up as he practiced on the second power play unit with John-Michael Liles. The Leafs first pair on defence on the power play was Dion Phaneuf and Cody ...

The Leafs practiced at Walter Brown Arena on the campus of Boston University Thursday afternoon as they look ahead to Game 2.

Game 1 aftermath. It’s human nature.

ulmer500may2

The Leafs played a poor game in Boston and lost Game 1 by a score of 4-1.

Yes, every nightmare scenario came true. The Leafs were overwhelmed. James Reimer was beaten to his glove side.

Jinkies. Must be the apocalypse.

Let me tell you a story.

When my Dad read my first published story he was dumbstruck with fear. He thought I must have plagiarized it.

Two things. First, thanks Dad.

Second, what we care about deeply is often the subject of our worst, most irrational fears.

I think you see where I am going with this.

Keys To Game One

bozak400apr30

With the Maple Leafs-Bruins series set to start tonight (7pm CBC, TSN1050Radio), Leafs TV executive producer Mark Askin provides his five keys to the game:

1. Faceoffs –  Boston Bruins best in NHL and Leafs best (Tyler Bozak) may not be able to take any. Constantly starting without the puck is a huge disadvantage especially on special teams.

2. Leafs Physical Play – Can the Leafs get any advantage over a less than normally physical Bruins team.

3. Chara vs. Kessel –  It’s the matchup of an elite offensive player vs. the best shutdown defender in the ...

Ten questions the Maple Leafs need to answer

Leo Komarov will have to do a lot of this against the Bruins

The Maple Leafs open the playoffs in Boston, Wednesday night. Perhaps you’ve heard.

The Leafs success will largely be determined by how they answer these ten questions.

What’s Tyler Bozak’s status?

Bozak expects to play after a full practice Tuesday. “We’ll see how I feel in the morning but all signs are leaning to I’ll be ready to go,” he said. Bozak’s season confounds stats freaks who look at a scant 16 assists for a player who gets first-line minutes but his importance as a face-off artist can’t be overstated. Without Bozak, who ...
