Toronto Maple Leafs Win Stanley Cup….

was the headline of the newspaper in May of 1967. I wasn’t even born for another 20 years. Add to that the 24 years I have been living and we are left with a number. That number is 44. That is the number of years it has been since the Toronto Maple Leafs have won the Stanley Cup. Toronto lives and breathes hockey and has the most rabid fans of any other team. The leafs are continually the highest grossing NHL team in the league with the most sold out games and merchandise sales, yet they still can’t win. Leaf fans are growing old, especially those who were around to see the glory years of the 60s. The new generation of fans has never been able to witness a winning tradition at all in Toronto. We haven’t even made it to the playoffs in years. Hopefully 2011-2012 will be the year to turn things around. Until then, we are left with these black and white pictures….




The Aftermath in Vancouver (Video)

Boston Bruins Win Stanley Cup!

Game 7 just ended and the Bruins beat the Canucks 4-0 on home ice. I have been criticized a lot for cheering for Boston, with people telling me Vancouver is “Canada’s team” and that I should want the Stanley Cup on Canadian soil. However, 17 of the 22 players on the Bruins roster are CANADIAN, making them a hell of a lot more Canadian than the Canucks. And about that Stanley Cup being on Canadian soil; Its always on Canadian soil. They store it in Toronto at the Hockey Hall of Fame! So theres that! haha

The Boston Bruins won their first Stanley Cup in 39 years, defeating the Vancouver Canucks 4-0 Wednesday night in the seventh and deciding game of the National Hockey League’s annual championship. Still can’t believe they were shutout, couldn’t even put one passed Timmy T who received the Conn Smythe as MVP. Good ol’ Nova Scotia boy Brad Marchand with 2 goals and 1 assist in the game. Tyler Seguin became the youngest rookie to win the Stanley Cup at age 19, second to none other than his teammate Mark Reechiwho also did it way back when.

The Bruins now have won the Stanley Cup six times, fourth-most among all NHL franchises, but hadn’t captured the sport’s most coveted prize since 1972. They had been to the finals five other times since they last won, but this time marked their first appearance since 1990.

The Canucks have been to the finals three times in their 41 seasons in the league, but have never won. Holding the home-ice advantage, they won the first two games of the series, but lost all three games played in Boston before losing at home on Wednesday.

They were seeking to become the first Canadian team to win the NHL title since the Montreal Canadiens in 1993.

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.

Tim Thomas laying out Henrik Sedin

Boston vs Vancouver Game 1 Stanley Cup Final Songs

The quest for Lord Stanley’s Cup begins tonight for the Vancouver Canucks and the Boston Bruins. It should be a good series and hopefully it goes to a game 7. Game one starts in a little over an hour so in the meantime watch these videos for each team

(I know as a Canadian I am supposed to cheer for Vancouver….but after watching these videos I have to go for Boston, I apologize nation [and savannah])

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.

What if P.K. Subban Never Played Hockey?

My Toronto Maple Leaf Experience

Had some nice tickets front row against the glass against the Carolina Hurricanes the other night. Definately made the best of the night, indulged in many $15 beers (ridiculous) and banged on that damn glass any chance I got. Check out the guy at the end who tries to take the stick from the kid, everyone was chirping him haha
