Mitch Marner of the Toronto Maple Leafs

The best of 7 series between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Tampa Bay Lightning was a hard fought battle between two of the best teams in the NHL.

Tampa Bay continues to make history and the the Toronto Maple Leafs continues to absorb game 7 losses one after another.

The Leafs time will come, just look at who they lost to in game 7.

It takes time, dedication, battle scars and a little puck luck to win the Stanley Cup.

Three stars of the game

  1. Nick Paul (Tampa Bay Lightning)
  2. A. Vasilevskiy (Tampa Bay Lighting)
  3. M. Reilly (Toronto Maple Leafs)


Sheldon Keefe;

“This one hurts more because this was a really good team that really played hard and the fact that you come that close against that team.”

“You can debate the merits of any sort of credit that you might give our team, but I don’t know if you can debate anything you give the Tampa Bay Lightning and who they are and what they stand for and what they’ve accomplished. We’re right there standing with them.”

Yes you were coach, the Leafs went head to head with the 2 time Stanley Cup Champion Tampa Bay Lightning! Your time will come!


Going forward for next season, they are a very good team. Maybe a tweak here or there. Their offense was incredible all season and the team defense was one of the best in the league.

Time will tell what moves are made if any this off season.  In the meantime you old antiquity Toronto media personnel, stay out of what is good or bad for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

In Dubas we believe, he will get the job done.  He has this team on the right path!

Marner said it starts with everyone needing to train harder in the offseason to come back stronger, faster and quicker.

“We’re getting sick and tired of feeling like this, so we’ve got to make sure we’re ready for this upcoming season.” said Mitch Marner

That’s the spirit, well said “Wizard” until next season!!

En route to the Stanley Cup finals! This is En Sentry Sorgini reporting to you for GTA Weekly News.
