James Reimer aka Optimus Reim @MapleLeafs

Leafs goalie James Reimer’s mask for the upcoming 2011-2012 season has been revealed. Can’t wait to see Optimus Reim back between the posts

Boston Bruins Bar Tab

The B’s racked up a $150,000+ bar tab partying after their Stanley Cup Victory. Among the highlights 126 Bud Lights, 2 Bottles of Ace of Spade Champagne ($2,000 each) 1 bottle of Ace of Spades Midas Champagne ($100,000) and they left a tip of $24,869

Tim Thomas & Nathan Horton Hits’

Last night was a crazy game in Boston. The bruins ended up crushing the Canucks 8-1, but the scoring was the least exciting part of the game. The entire game was fast-paced with everyone finishing their hits. Here are the two most notable hits of the nights.

Nathan Horton getting knocked out/concussed by Vancouver’s Aaron Rome. Rome was suspended for 4 games and Horton is out with a concussion.

Roberto Luongo Shows the Green Men Love

Following Vancouver’s victory over the San Jose Sharks last night to advance to the Stanley Cup Final, Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo made sure to show ‘The Green Men’ some love before leaving the ice.

Phaneuf & Eberle: Shake n Bake

Toronto Maple Leaf Captain Dion Phaneuf brought the house down on some poor Swiss kid today in the 2011 IIHF Championship. Knocked him out, look at that face on the bench!

and here’s the funny moment of the day, Edmonton Oiler Jordan Eberle goes in for the handshake on the chick and she totally shuts him down!

Bobby Ryan AMAZING Goal vs Predators

Dangles!

Highlight reel HUGE goal by Bobby Ryan of the Anaheim Ducks tonight against the Preds. Goal of the year perhaps?

James Reimer is the FUTURE

They call him Optimus Reim. The name definitely suits him. The Maple Leaf rookie goaltender just got his 16th win of the year, along with his 3rd shutout. He has been the one glimmer of hope in the Leafs playoff push. With 8 games remaining in the season sitting 5 points out of the playoffs, the Leafs truly can’t afford to lose any games. I saw the strangest coaching decision happen last week when Ron Wilson opted to play JS Giguere against the Florida Panthers instead of Reimer. Reimer in fact didn’t even dress that game. We lost 3-0 to Florida in a must-win game where we desperately needed those 2 points. Hopefully it doesn’t come back to haunt us. We can only look to the future now, and the final 8 games. GO LEAFS GO

Check out this HUGE save by Reimer followed by the Air Canada Centre chant of REIMER, REIMER, REIMER!

Not Gank x Phil Kessel Gets Picked Last

I successfully called this today. Out of 48  players I said Phil Kessel of the Toronto Maple Leafs deserved to be picked last. Well it ended up actually happening. I am going to buy a lottery ticket tonight! Check out Ovechkin taking a picture of Phil sitting all by himself! The All Star Game is Sunday!

Maybe this will open Phil’s eyes and he will start scoring goals. But probably not.

Not Gank … but still slightly gank x Kulemin vs Gleason

Tim Gleason of the Carolina Hurricanes dropped a greasy punch into the face of Toronto’s Nikolai Kulemin tonight. I am all for fighting in hockey, I actually encourage it, but this was pretty dirty of him. I don’t think Kulemin has ever been in a fight in his life! What was he thinking? Kulemin didn’t even drop his gloves! The poor guys nose exploded before he even knew what was going on. Gleason got a penalty for fighting, Kulemin did not.

not gank that it happened to one of our ONLY good players on the leafs, but still sort of gank seeing a guys nose get broken in a hockey fight.
