Toronto Maple Leafs (24-10-3) @ Calgary Flames (16-19-3)

Leafs Game #38
9:00 p.m. ET, Toronto
Watch on: TSN4, Sportsnet West (blackouts in effect)
Opponent’s site: Matchsticks and Gasoline

Here’s our preview of tonight’s (very late) game with the most recent lineup information.

The Flames are trailing badly in the North Division to a point every game is now must-win for them to keep a hope of making the playoffs alive. The Leafs can put all of that to bed tonight and tomorrow with two quick wins, but, those have proved difficult to get from the Flames. Throw in that second-backup goalie Michael Hutchinson is starting tonight and there are conditions for the Leafs to take their first regulation time loss since the Flames beat them 4-3 all the way back on March 19.


GO LEAFS GO!

The Leafs have won four of the six games so far against Calgary this season. Let’s keep that rolling!
