Let the Wookie Win

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. It was dark, in more ways than one and there was little hope to be found. But a merry band of rebels fought to bring down an evil empire. There was a...

One day last fall, Ron Wilson is walking through the underground labyrinth of tunnels that connect all of the major points in the city’s downtown when his cellphone rings. On the line is Scott Gordon, his assistant coach with the U.S. Olympic hockey team, and they begin talking about issues surrounding the coming Vancouver Whistler Games. A shortish fellow in standard business attire walks by, sees a familiar face, and does a bit of a double-take. Then he walks up to Wilson, who is still talking, and hollers the following directly into his ear. "You’re the worst [expletive] coach I’ve ever seen. You’re a [expletive] idiot." Then the man in the suit walks away, leaving Wilson standing there, with Gordon laughing on the other end of the line. It doesn’t end there. Anyone who knows the way Wilson relishes the cut and thrust, understands that he likes to get the last word, can imagine what comes next. He sprints through the tunnel – his antagonist has a 50-metre lead, but he quickly catches up – and stops him dead in his tracks. "You said something back there. Now say it to my face." His critic is momentarily taken aback, but eventually summons his courage and repeats his critique, complete with f-bombs.

Leafs @ Caps: 5-4, SO Loss

Oi vey, what a game. It wasn't a good night to be a goalie for this roller coaster. The Leafs did stage a comeback, only to end up in a shootout. How bendy is the Monster? Sheesh.

Second Period Style: Leafs @ Caps

Our Schenn and Savior. Nikolai Kulemin with the goal.

Boys Night Out

The Truculent Maple Leafs are rolling into Philadelphia to face the Flyers for some Saturday action. This is your first period game thread. Music break after the jump. Keep it cute or put it on...

Aftermath

Welp, that certainly sucked. Rangers 2 and Leafs 1. Discuss.

Rangers @ Leafs: Three the Hard Way

No changes. Score still 2-0 New York and I'm cranky, hungry and tired.

Rangers @ Leafs: Second Period Style

The Rangers have the jump on the Leafs leading 2-0 after the 1st.

Don't Even Think About It, Cowboy

Well this certainly has the build up for drama and theatrics. Given the last run in of the Leafs and Ranger, I expect fists. Sean Avery isn't going to be very welcome in the ACC after his hacking...
