Battle of Ontario

Leafs vs. Sens - Commentary from both sides of the aisle.

I hope there is no fighting tonight.....


Not because I am anti-fighting. Heck, I grew up in the era of the Broad Street Bullies and Big Bad Bruins. But I am tired of the constant moral preening of the hockey journalists here in Canada over the whole issue of fighting.  All this week they have filled every waking moment of air time with discussion over fighting and the soon to be (they fervently hope) its eventual ban. Whatever. Back

The laughing lady


She's been a presence on this blog for a long time. She's been a friend when we've been down. She's been there when we've forgotten that there are people out there with far worse problems than our own. A reminder that you could drive down the highway 4hrs and find a place where playoff hockey was a distant memory and not the spring ritual that we here in Ottawa have been able to enjoy.

Amazing Skills Competition Move!


Last night in a meaningless exhibition game, Ottawa forward Kasper Daugavins tried this fun and very creative move. Good for Kasper, using the shootout as an opportunity to entertain fans and get his name out there in the headlines, that's what these warm-up games are for!

Battle of Ontario Part III


The game starts in less than an hour.  Here are a few stories.                                                                                                              Maple Leafs winger Matt Frattin won’t play tonight. Toronto Star Muppet: Believe it or not Bob Mitchell followed this headline up with 429 words that really didn't need to be written. Matt Frattin won't be playing.

Take that Blackhawks.


GAME DAY THREE PACK: Komisarek, Brown and Fear of the Devil.


Mike Komisarek may want to consider waiving his No Movement Clause. When he signed with the Leafs in 2009 the addition of the NMC was undoubtedly to ensure Komisarek played in the NHL and the NHL only. Ironically enough, if Komisarek could have been sent down to the Marlies earlier in the season to work with Marlies coach Dallas Eakins in hopes of finding his NHL game again, perhaps by now

Maybe it's a difference in leadership?


Montreal's last two games: 1. Outshoot Ottawa 45-24, lose 2-1 2. Outshoot Toronto 40-23, win 5-2 Headlines... Should Maple Leafs captain Dion Phanuef have fought Montreal’s Brandon Prust last night?  The Star Senators aren’t feeling sorry for themselves Gazette Maple Leafs top line snoozes through loss to Montreal Canadiens  The Star

Great Moments, Part 2


A poorly timed dive by Tucker led to this great moment...

Great Moments in BoO History.


This hit will get you suspended nowadays. I'd like to think that Mark Bell would still do it anyway.



My heart tells me this one is gonna be a laugher. Ottawa are decimated by injuries, Toronto are playing well, and the game location is pretty much neutral territory (despite Melnyk's sad attempt to keep Leafs fans away). My head tells me to play it cool and not outrightly predict victory for the Blue and White. My balls say F*ck that... Leafs 4 Ottawa 2.

Not a bad lineup


Spezza, Michalek, Karlsson, Cowen, and Anderson.  I guess you can put Regin, Latendresse, or O'Brien on the other wing. Too bad it's the lineup to the trainers room and not starting on Saturday. Well - no excuses come tomorrow night.  We don't need to hear any 'Boo hoo' quotes from the visitor's locker room.

Possible Replacements for Lindy Ruff.


Looks like Buffalo have a coaching vacancy to fill this summer. Here are a few former Battle of Ontario coaches available for consideration: 1. RON WILSON:  He's Canadian, but he can be American too. Just ask Don Cherry. While Ron wasn't able to find any  success in Toronto, he is one of the winningest coaches in NHL history to never really win anything. This should help him fit into Ruff's
