[Game Preview] - Arizona Coyotes @ Toronto Maple Leafs

The Leafs head home for part 2 of a back to back, hoping for a more exciting game.

Wow, last nights game eh? So that was something.. Okay, I didn't watch it, but I told you I wouldn't, and if you did, I'm sorry you make bad choices. Though I hear Rielly had one great shift in OT.

Tonight the Maple Leafs host the Coyotes, after travelling home from New Jersey with a loser point and not much to be proud of.  Both the Coyotes and the Leafs are on losing streaks, Arizona sits at 2-6-2 in their past 10, while the Leafs have a record of...1-8-1...are you fucking kidding me?

Well, someone has to win tonight, unless the power goes out in the 2nd period and they postpone the rest of the game.

Here's your preview, if you want to watch.

What to expect: A big pile of...

In their last meeting the Coyotes beat the Maple Leafs 3-2. There was no recap here, because I guess we'd already given up on the season.

Here's that game in 6

What to expect from tonight? Who knows. Maybe Mike Smith will play like the Olympian he is? Maybe Bernier does better playing BOTH GAMES OF A BACK TO BACK? Who knows, I'll be passed out by game time.
