from Kevin McGran of the Toronto Star,
The Los Angeles Kings are what the Toronto Maple Leafs hope to be — not just Stanley Cup champions but grinding, forechecking, defensive-minded Stanley Cup champions.
So says Leafs coach Randy Carlyle.
“I look at the way (the Kings) played and the type of team they had was very similar to what we had in 2007 (in Anaheim),” said Carlyle, who won the Cup with the Ducks that year.
“It was a grinding type of puck movement (in the playoffs) … There wasn’t a lot of goals scored off the rush. There was a lot more special teams in the games.”
This is the kind of hockey Carlyle wants his Leafs to play.
