Leafs celebrate 100 years with 8-1 rout

The future arrived with an 8-1 dismantling of the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday afternoon that gave everyone playing hooky from school plenty of opportunity to stand up and cheer. And, according to Mike Babcock, it offered the Leafs a chance to playfully rib the 20-year-old who is basically a little brother to all of them.

Jeff Skinner is stopped by Frederik Andersen on Dec. 19, 2017 (STAN BEHAL/POSTMEDIA)Interestingly, Marner has eight multi-point games this season, which is tied with Matthews for most on the team. It’s not that Marner is producing poorly overall – it’s just come in fits and starts this year, with his 24 points compiled in just 13 separate games (22 games without a point).Sorry, we could not verify that email address.

Leafs Locker: Nylander's time at centre likely to be brief — for now

“If you’re a scorer who doesn’t score, it starts weighing on you,” he said. “When you’re a young person, you can’t help it, you have to look at (who is bashing you on social media).”1.  These are the games you dream about if you’re a coach. The superstar is out injured, you’re on a three-game losing skid, and your two other young stars are mired in slumps. Suddenly, everything just clicks: Four-point night from slumping Mitch Marner, the slumping Nylander Nylander scores, the slumping Leo Komarov scores, and the slumping Tyler Bozak puts up a four-point night, along with yet another great showing from your starting goalie and a three-for-three day for the struggling power play. Oh, and you rout your old assistant coach’s team 8-1 for the cherry on top, all on the anniversary of the first ever NHL game.

Marner leads the offence with four points; Maple Leafs down Hurricanes, 8-1

“I heard lots of shots coming off the ice,” Leafs head coach Mike Babcock said. “‘Mitch you were really good in the first, you’ve got your classmates here, you’re trying to impress them. … First time we’ve played a game that wasn’t after your bed time,’ and all that stuff.”
Marner set a new career high for points in a game with a goal and three assists as the Toronto Maple Leafs downed the Carolina Hurricanes, 8-1, in a rare National Hockey League afternoon tilt.

Mitch Marner breaks out as Maple Leafs celebrate birthday bash

The Maple Leafs delivered on the promise of an historic “Next Century” game. While van Riemsdyk’s goal was significant from a historical point of view, others were more significant in the here and now, including:Leo Komarov – Nazem Kadri – Connor BrownPatrick Marleau – William Nylander – Zach HymanJames van Riemsdyk – Tyler Bozak – Mitchell MarnerMatt Martin – Dominic Moore – Kasperi KapanenDominic Moore and Derek Ryan on Dec. 19, 2017 (STAN BEHAL/POSTMEDIA)The Maple Leafs faced Carolina in commemorative jerseys with “Arenas,” an early name for the team, on the front.

The defenseman suffered a lower-body injury in Friday’s 3-1 loss to the Detroit Red Wings and is expected to miss a minimum of two weeks. Zaitsev’s injury creates a massive hole on Toronto’s blue line the team might not be capable of filling with anyone currently within their system.

Toronto marks 100 years of Maple Leafs with special game, day

December 20, 2017, 7:30 PM ET | Nationwide ArenaWith a report from CTV’s Peter Akman and CTV Toronto’s John Musselman

True to the “next century” theme, kids made up a large portion of the fans in the stands. For many former NHL greats in attendance it was a reminder of where they started.

Before Tuesday’s win over the Carolina Hurricanes, they had lost three straight games. Things just got worse with the news that defenseman Nikita Zaitsev will be out for multiple weeks.

right-shot defenceman Roman Polak, who has assumed injured Nikita Zaitsev’s role of killing almost all the penalty minutes. After patiently sitting out 25 days as a healthy scratch—a streak that would’ve continued were Zaitsev healthy—Carrick scored the eighth and final goal of the afternoon. The Leafs are now 14-3-1 with Carrick in the lineup.

Matthews skated on his own on Tuesday morning, the third day in a row he has done so.The team rests in good hands and has the tools to get it done, could this they be the next dynasty?

4.  Mitch Marner had the weight of the world lifted after breaking a 15-game goal-scoring slump, and he should probably send the Canes’ penalty-killing unit a bottle of something to say thanks for giving him all the time and space in the world to gain the zone and rip another goal past Darling. It was just what Marner needed and just what the Leafs needed.

The Leafs offence had mustered just four goals in their last four games before exploding against the Hurricanes.

Peters said he considered removing Darling after the first period.

The past three games were the worst or what felt like the worst stretch from Leafs all season, scoring just three goals and looking sloppy throughout. The absence of Matthews has been a burden, however, this game something clicked.

Connor Carrick played very well last night, but with it being a back-to-back Martin Marincin may get his first taste of NHL action this year. Kasperi Kapanen got in to last night’s game, but he may be, like Carrick, swapped out for Josh Leivo.Sergei BobrovskyJoonas Korpisalo

“They were better in every area, their special teams set the tone early. Some of the plays and decisions we made with the puck were less than perfect … they were quicker than us and it showed,” said Carolina coach Bill Peters.

Funny. Back in training camp, Matthews and Nylander looked like they would set the world afire. One reporter asked Babcock in October if the young duo might be of the Trottier-Bossy mold, Nylander obviously the sniper. The coach scoffed. Last he checked, those Hall of Famers had four Cups.

Along with breaking Marner’s scoring drought and a three-game Leafs losing streak, the game was notable for the resurgence of the entire Toronto offence. The Leafs had scored only four goals in their previous four games.Komarov put Toronto ahead to stay with the team’s first short-handed goal of the season just 2:52 into the first.

The Leafs scored six seconds apart in the third. Marleau banked his 12th goal of the season off a defenseman at 9 minutes, 25 seconds and Kapanen scored his second.

While other Leafs have hit ruts — Nazem Kadri, for example, has gone eight games without recording a point — van Riemsdyk has been a model of consistency, not going more than four games without finding the back of the net.
