Goals / Leafs

King Joffrey goes end-to-end in our hearts

Lupul_Kessel

Joffrey Lupul is the epitome of hot right now. Since returning from an arm injury, Loops has racked up seven goals in five games, and one of them was this stunner:

If you’re wondering why he makes it looks so easy, just look no further than the Carolina Hurricanes defence. Not to take anything away from Lupul, but he was given way too much space and walked right the fuck in. Let’s take a lookie.

It all starts with keeping the puck away from 24-year-old winger Drayson Bowman. With a name like that you'd think he'd steam roll Lupul. Not the case.

And he's off!

And he’s off!

Lupe's spots Dman Joe Corvo and already knows he has it in the bag.

DEFENCE! CLAPCLAPCLAP DEFENCE!

Now? No...not...yet....

The palindrome tucks it in for the GWG.

Lupul continues to demand MOAR EXCITEMENT from the Bay Street Boys Club.

This kid could not believe what he saw, and he's sitting next to THAT. Memory for the bank, right there.

It’s hard to talk about the playoffs because just when I thought the Toronto Maple Leafs were destined to grace the post-season last year, they fell off a cliff and crushed my dreams. I’m trying to be cautiously optimistic but shit, THE PLAYOFFS ARE IN SIGHT.

The Leafs ended up beating the Canes 6-3…and then this happened…

 Great goal, exciting game, and let’s shut it about his contract because he’s earned our silence (BUT NOT AT THE ACC!) for at least a calendar year.
