Keefe after loss to Blackhawks: Leafs are being 'an immature team'

Keefe after loss to Blackhawks: Leafs are being 'an immature team'

Another milestone awaits Patrick Kane when the Chicago Blackhawks travel to Toronto to lock horns against the Maple Leafs inside the Scotiabank Arena on Saturday.

Nylander got one back 25 seconds into the middle period with his 22nd on a power play, but Toews fought off Martin Marincin on a wraparound to make it 4-1 just 2:54 later for his 14th.

There will be only 33 regular-season games remaining on the other side for Toronto, and from where the team stands now, every single one could help determine their spring plans.

Toronto is of course looking for a replacement goalkeeper; does not replace opener Frederik Andersen (22-8-6, saving percentage of.912, 2.80 goals against the average).

It's no secret that the Toronto Maple Leafs can use another option for a substitute goalkeeper. That ended a week which started with a awful effort in Florida against the Panthers, as the Leafs gave up eight goals in a road game for the first time in nearly eight years.

NOTES: Strome now has 6 objectives and six assists in 18 career video games versus Toronto. We're not performing or playing with any level of discipline or consistency. But a defenceman of some calibre has to be in his sights, even if Rasmus Sandin proves he is in the National Hockey League to stay, though it has to make financial sense for a Leafs club that doesn't have extra dollars waiting to be found under the couch cushions.

Arenado trade talks off the table — Rockies GM
It took all of a few hours for the Rockies' declaration that Nolan Arenado wouldn't be traded to completely implode. Now? Passan added that Arenado feels "betrayed" given the Rockies' lack of activity this offseason.

Rittich then stopped a one-timer off the stick of Tyson Barrie, while Sean Monahan had Andersen at his mercy only to fire wide from the slot.

After Strome put his team in front 2-1 midway through the very first duration, the 26- year-old local of Mississauga, Ontario, scored another to give the Rangers a two-goal lead early in the 2nd. "But you've also got to work and play well to get that kind of support".

He wouldn't look out of place at Wrigley Field, batting a backhand saucer pass from Jonathan Toews out of the air for a sensational goal. "We were an immature team here today". Your mom will love it.' And [Brady] snapped that one back at me pretty good.

"It's not a good feeling", captain John Tavares said. "I think their first three goals, one was off our stick and the other two were right around our crease, so we've got to be a little bit sharper in those areas". In three of those matches, it has been at least six goals against.

However, the Rangers want an NHL-ready player in exchange for Georgiev, which Mirtle thinks could be Kasperi Kapanen, Andreas Johnson or Alexander Kerfoot.

Toronto will have a long time to digest its recent performances, as the team's next game doesn't come until January 27, after its bye week and the All-Star weekend. "And with the type of team we have and what we've shown, the type of hockey we can play, the type of team we are, (we) just know this isn't good enough".
