I'm not sure what to write here anymore. We have what, 13 games left in the season? I don't think I've ever checked out this early before. So... here's your preview.
Toronto Maple Leafs @ Calgary Flames

Maple Leafs gameday chatter
The Leafs beat the Flames 4-1 in their only other game this season.
Joffrey Lupul mired in 16-game goal drought, the longest of his Leaf career. He'll match a career-long drought if he fails to score tonight.— Jonas Siegel (@jonasTSN1050) March 13, 2015
Will actually be Reimer tonight for Leafs— Mark Masters (@markhmasters) March 13, 2015
Kadri says he was surprised by Shanahan comments but understands— Mark Masters (@markhmasters) March 13, 2015
Flames gameday chatter

Treliving says Ladislav Smid is done for the season. #Flames— Pat Steinberg (@Fan960Steinberg) March 13, 2015
Signing Murray to a tryout for practice gives the analytics crowd their daily reason to dump on the Flames nice and early, so there’s that.— Randy Sportak (@SUNRandySportak) March 13, 2015

Do you really want to hear them? I don't know about this one. Meh. meh. Meh. They're not in the playoffs, sports club stats says they have a 0.00004% chance to make it, so basically they have a 4 goal comeback in the last 10 minutes of a game 7 of the chance of making the playoffs.
Sorry about that.
If you're going to watch, I hope it's an a excellent game, fast, speedy, high scoring, and enjoyable. I do, really. Enjoy the game.
