The Hockey Writers are the official hockey team of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Their articles are scrupulously objective, bringing you the latest news on the NHL in Toronto, the Marlies, the Blue Jackets, the Maple Leafs, the Raptors and the NHLPA.
If the Leafs win the Stanley Cup this season it would mark the first time the team has won the Cup since 1983.
They are currently the only team to win the Cup in three consecutive seasons, with the Leafs winning in 1998, 2002 and 2006.
The Maple Leafs will also get to keep their Stanley Cup banner this season.
This year, the team is celebrating their 30th anniversary in Toronto and in addition to the banners, the city is celebrating the 30th birthday of the Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment Group.
The city is also celebrating the Leafs centennial in 2020.
In addition to celebrating the anniversary, the Leafs have been a major part of the hockey community for decades.
The Leafs have hosted a number of concerts and held events such as the Hockey Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, which honored players who played for the team from 1946 to 1967.
They were inducted into the Hockey Canada Hall of Honour in 2017.
In 2017, they also won a record-breaking seven straight games in the Stanley Cups Finals.
In 2018, the Toronto Marlies played their first ever playoff game and finished the season with a 19-12-5 record.
The Marlies had a great year, going 25-8-1, and went on to win their second Stanley Cup in franchise history.
The team also became the first team in NHL history to go 30-5-2 in their first 50 seasons of existence.
This season, the Buffalo Sabres finished 30-11-4, the same as the season before.
Buffalo also became just the third team in the NHL to go undefeated for at least three straight seasons.
This is the third time in franchise hockey history that the Buffalo Bills have won the Stanley, following the 1997-98 and 2000-01 Stanley Cup victories.
The Sabres also won the Presidents’ Trophy, awarded to the NHL’s top rookie and team, in 2018.
The Buffalo Sabres will host the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 2019 Stanley Cup Finals, the last time the NHL will host a Finals series.
