If the Leafs can make it here, they can make it anywhere.

Leafs (29-18-5) @ Rangers (25-20-5)

7:00 pm ET
TV: TSN4 (blackouts in effect)

Our game preview with lineups is here.

Curtis McElhinney is in net tonight for the Leafs. I assume the Rangers will start Henrik Lundqvist because they always start him this season. They are a desperate team. The Rags now sit one point out of the wild card spot in that mushy middle fight with the Flyers, Islanders, and Hurricanes for the last Wild Card Playoff slot.

We will also see one Peter Holland playing for the Rangers tonight along with Fulemin's favourite trade deadline acquisition: Michael "butt goal" Grabner.

Poll

The Rangers are apparently selling. Should the Leafs buy Grabner?

    If Fulemin is right and it only costs Josh Leivo + a 3rd, do it!

    We have enough butt that can score on this team already.

    The only butt grabber I want here is Claude Giroux.

    Species, your obsession with scoring butt goals is commendable, and a little creepy.
