Game Day: Maple Leafs at Canucks

The dreaded 4pm start in Vancouver.

Edmonton Oilers v Vancouver Canucks
Friends.....for now.

The Toronto Maple Leafs are on the very edge of the country tonight, ready to play the Vancouver Canucks and win a game on the western Canada road trip.

THOSE GUYS: NUCKS MISCONDUCT

The Maple Leafs lost to the Calgary Flames on Thursday night, and no, the world did not end, some people just acted like it did.

Despite winning their previous six games, this loss to Calgary was it. Will a loss to the Canucks cause just as much stress to Maple Leafs fans?

Vancouver is losing games all over the place while they try to rebuild themselves into a respectable team without doing a full rebuild. They’ve lost four of their last five games, they’re terrible, but hey, they made some great hires, so look at that not their record!

The Maple Leafs better beat these dorks,

Vancouver Canucks

The Leafs are 66-65-22-4 against Vancouver all time, with 533 goals for, and 519 against. It’s pretty even historically because they’ve both had long stretches of being terrible.
