After two big losses to the Blackhawks and Lightning, the Maple Leafs are looking for a solid win tonight against the Flyers.

Everyone on the team who has spoken to the media since the loss to the Blackhawks has pretty much the same message: they need a sense of urgency to their game. They need to show up ready to go fast from the very first minute. Will they do that tonight? They better. And they better be ready to do it all again tomorrow against the Senators. That is definitely a game not to lose.
