Scrivens Recalled, Rynnas Sent To Marlies

scrivens600mar28

The Maple Leafs were once again without goalie James Reimer at practice Wednesday as he remained out with an upper body injury. Ben Scrivens was called up to take Reimer’s place as Jussi Rynnas was back with the Marlies a day after making his NHL debut in the 3-0 loss.

This is the second time that Scrivens has been with the Leafs this season. He was with the Leafs in early November and saw action in eight games, starting seven. He was 2-4-1 with a 2.96 GAA and a .904SV%. Scrivens ...

I know this is my fault even if I don’t quite know why

Cody Franson gives winning goalie James Reimer a tap after the Leafs defeated Edmonton 6-3 on Feb. 6. This picture was taken mere moments before I did something that sent the entire season down the toilet.

You’ve got to see this:

According to this graph, when the Leafs defeated the Edmonton Oilers 6-3 on Feb. 6, they had a 90.05 per cent likelihood of making the post season.

Today, they stand on the verge of elimination. They haven’t won a home game since they beat Edmonton.

This comes down to a very simple ...

Foes consider Ross a ‘Brother Tucker’ or something very close.

ross600mar20ulmer

Bradley Ross positions himself in front of the net in an exhibition game against Chicago.

It’s the story Mike Johnston reaches for when you ask the Portland Winterhawks’ coach about the Leafs newest signee Brad Ross.

“Two years ago there was a pre-season tournament in Everett (Was.) and they needed another team to round it out,” Johnston said. “The Soo Greyhounds came out.

“We were down 5-1 in our game against them and that night Brad Ross took 40 minutes in penalties. He fought guys. He ran over guys. He was an ...

kulemin600mar15

The tough season for Nikolai Kulemin continued Thursday when it was announced that he will be out for three weeks with a broken finger suffered in the loss Tuesday against Florida. Kulemin joins Mike Brown and Joffrey Lupul on the injured list.

This season has been the worst of Kulemin’s career as he has recorded just seven goals and 28 points one year after being a 30-goal scorer. Prior to his injury, Kulemin had recorded three points in the last 10 games.

With the injuries to Kulemin and Lupul the Leafs top two ...

Goo-Goo-Kachoo Mrs Robinson and other hockey truths.

KorbinianHolzer

Korbinian Holzer has twice represented Germany at the World Championship but he is anxious for his first North American playoff.

“Where have you gone Joe DiMaggio, a nation turns its lonely eyes to you.”

Forty-two years after Paul Simon penned those rueful lyrics, the words to Mrs. Robinson have a new spin. With the big club’s playoff hopes crippled by a disastrous February and early March, Leafs Nation is turning its gaze to the AHL Marlies.

The Marlies have won 31 of 62 games and taken points in seven shootout or overtime ...

What to do when all seems lost

fans600ulmermar12

Barring a magnificent, barely imaginable miracle, the Maple Leafs will not qualify for the post-season.

They have won just two of their last 16 games in regulation.  It’s tough to gain ground when you bank only six of a possible 32 points.

After a heady early and mid-season, the team and the millions of people who follow it have returned to walk the same barren patch of ground for the seventh straight year.

The bitter taste of seasons lost is back: one part disappointment, one part resignation, one part bile. Look not to ...
