FTB: Maple Leafs win first game of their Alberta road trip

New, comments

The Leafs defeated the Flames 4-1. Next up is the Oilers.

Calgary Flames v Toronto Maple Leafs

The Maple Leafs are won the first game of their annual Alberta road trip, defeating the Calgary Flames 4-1.

Next up are the comically bad Edmonton Oilers. Last night the Oilers won in overtime... against the Arizona Coyotes. Connor McDavid, who was paired up with Milan Lucic and Mike Cammalleri, looked legitimately bad. They are lucky to have won as the Coyotes had two shots in OT pass Cam Talbot, but ring off the crossbar.

The Marlies play tonight in a rare Wednesday home game against the Syracuse Crunch. The Crunch are the team which eliminated the Marlies in the second round of last seasons Calder Cup Playoff, but the Marlies have come back and defeated them in all three games so far this season.
