Joffrey Lupul Is Now Threatening To Fight People On Instagram

Leafs winger Joffrey Lupul seems to be taking this "threaten to sue anyone who has ever implied that he slept with Dion Phaneuf's wife" strategy very seriously.

Phil Kessel Mad

Joffrey Lupul Legit Pissed At Joke Tweet That Made It To TSN

The Maple Leafs earned a small victory today. Ha, no, not on the ice. Toronto found a team willing to take on the albatross that is David Clarkson's contract. Congratulations, Blue Jackets! » 2/26/15 6:41pm 2/26/15 6:41pm

Oliver Ekman-Larsson Scores Distant Shorthanded Goal On Hapless Leafs

Arizona Coyotes defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson was only trying to dump the puck, but the unintended accuracy gave him his 13th goal of the season as the "shot" got past Maple Leafs goalie Jonathan Bernier.

Three Maple Leafs Fans Charged For Throwing Jerseys Onto The Ice

Toronto started off the season badly. Then they were good for a while! Now they're really bad again. Who are the real Maple Leafs? (The bad ones.) But some fans don't really have the patience for them to figure it out. During last night's humiliating 4-1 loss to Carolina, at least four fans chucked their Leafs jerseys… » 1/20/15 12:25pm 1/20/15 12:25pm

Ref Breaks Rib After Colliding With Maple Leafs Player, Hitting Ice

Remember a couple of weeks ago, when Tyler Seguin was chirping at the referee to get out of the corner? Well here's another reason for referees to stay out: you'll get wrecked. » 1/10/15 2:22pm 1/10/15 2:22pm

Roman Polak Messed Up By Slapshot To The Face

This is what Roman Polak looked like an hour after taking a slapshot to the face: kind of like he's the NHL's latest mumps victim, but then tried to cut the mumps out. He was just minding his own business in the first period of Wednesday night's game against the Capitals, pushing his man away from the crease, when… » 1/07/15 9:53pm 1/07/15 9:53pm

Jonathan Bernier Humiliatingly Has No Idea Who Nelson Mandela Is

Nelson Mandela was a South African anti-Apartheid leader who spent 27 years in jail before eventually being elected as the country's first black head of government.

Phil Kessel Got Blown Up

Last night, Dallas's Antoine Roussel wiped an entire pane of glass with Phil Kessel's tumbling form. We love a good, clean hit that sends a player flying like someone messed with the sliders in a video game. » 12/03/14 6:05pm 12/03/14 6:05pm

Maple Leafs Return To Saluting Fans, World Returns To Axis

We can put this to rest now, I think. Four days after a brutal loss that had many predicting impending meltdown, and two days after Saluteghazi, the Maple Leafs beat the Red Wings 4-1, and, yes, raised their sticks to the fans. » 11/23/14 11:25am 11/23/14 11:25am
