The NHL standings are tight and heading into March the games always get more intense! The Leafs went 7-4-1 in February and while the top line of Matthews-Marner-Bunting is one of the best right now in the NHL, the goaltending has been less than ordinary. These are a few topics we discuss in our segment the Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

Despite some of the ugliness, we actually found a bright spot! We also had flashbacks to a Leaf great, who used to take the puck end to end! Who was that Leaf great? Tune in to find out and to hear who made our LTL Highlight Reel!

Another exciting moment that all of Canada celebrated was the Gold medal win for the Canadian Olympic Women’s hockey team! The Gold medal game was the most watched event of the Beijing games in Canada. We talk about the big victory over the United States and what many people are saying was the best Team Canada ever to represent the women’s game.

We conclude the show by celebrating Black History Month, which is highlighted every year during the month of February. It is so important to bring awareness to, and improve on, growing the grassroots of the game throughout the year. Former Leafs defenceman Mark Fraser works with MLSE in Player Development – Equity, Diversity and Inclusion and we discuss his involvement with the team and also talk about a personal Scarborough hockey connection that we didn’t know about!

The funnest part of the season is just around the corner! The trade deadline is a couple weeks away and we are one month closer to the playoffs. Our show is also approaching a significant milestone as we are closing in on our 50th episode! So much to be excited about and we are so grateful to be sharing it with all of you! Go Leafs Go!
